Stuart and Sarah at Rhinefield House

Stuart and Sarah marry at Rhinefield House Hotel

On Saturday we joined Stuart and Sarah for their wedding at Rhinefield House in the New Forest which we adore and although is a very regular venue for us we always find new places to explore and yesterday was no exception.  We started our day with Sarah and the girls in the lovely Heron suite at Rhinefield for some very relaxed shots whilst Sarah was having her hair done.  We spent our usual couple of hours flitting about between Sarah and the girls and the flowers and dress and of course her beautiful Benjamin Adams shoes, one of my favourite designers. Sarah’s dress was an Ian Stuart which is without a doubt my favourite wedding dresses and they are always a joy to photograph.

We had lots of fun with the girls but soon it was time to head off  and find Stuart who we bumped into downstairs trying to find someone to tie his cravat Sue soon came to the rescue and all was calm, after a few shots with the boys and the amazing De Beers wedding bands it was time to head back into Rhinefield for the wedding.

Sarah and the girls were joined by Dad for an emotional few minutes before we headed into the ceremony, there is something pretty special about Rhinefield house weddings in the grand hall and after Sarah’s entrance there were few dry eyes. After an amazing ceremony we headed out onto the lawns for canope’s and bubbly followed of course by some family groups, the amazing weather allowed for photographs on the rear steps by the lake which is always nice because you get the amazing Rhinefield house in the background.

After our family groups and of course me risking life and limb to climb out and do the everybody shot,  Sue and I took Stuart and Sarah off for some portraits, we were probably our for 30 minutes yesterday because we were simply having so much fun, we ambled around the grounds and took some amazing shots, along with the must have Rhinefield wedding shots, we also took a few new ones which was a lot of fun.

We then headed into dinner, cake cutting and soon after speeches, from there we had a gap before the band started so Sarah suggested (maybe prompted by me) that we go for some nice evening shots, we did and they were amazing.  we then headed back into dance and then head home.

We had yet another Rhinefield House wedding and as always thanks to our toastie David Thompson.
