I was delighted when Laura and Will contacted me to photograph their wedding after meeting with them in Southsea. Laura and Will had chosen Southdowns Manor as their wedding venue.
Southdowns Manor is on the Hampshire & West Sussex border near Petersfield in a remote area in the South Downs National Park. Recently taken over and refurbished Southdowns Manor opened in december 2013 as a wedding venue. The stunning interior is very modern with great features such as the fireplace and garden over looking farmland is lovely for photographs. The day started rather grey and grim but the weather was meant to improve.
It was brightening up and so I made the most of all the natural light in the porch area with some shots of the flowers all in a line.

Once the hair and make up was finished on the bride and bridesmaids I took some time with the them shooting in the amazing Bridal Suite. This is one of my favourite shots of the day.

I made good use of the scenic views overlooking local farmland and with the stormy skies made for a more dramatic shot with some vibrant colours.
