We always do a little happy dance when we are asked to work at venues as stunning as the gorgeous Froyle Park in Alton! It really is a pleasure to be able to photograph such beautiful surroundings.
Taz & Julie had the perfect winter conditions for their January wedding day – it was crisp and cold to start with, but then turned into a beautiful sunny day with an amazing blue sky to boot! Great conditions for the photographs and an even better day than they had dared to hope for with the famous British weather to contend with!
Julie started her day in style as she was getting ready at Froyle Park itself. The elegant surroundings and tranquil setting really seemed to keep the atmosphere very calm during the preparations.
There were some really thoughtful touches that Julie had arranged for her and the girls – Julie, her mum and the bridesmaids all had gorgeous custom-made silk dressing gowns and even personalised hangers for their dresses!
Soon it was off to All Saints Church in the beautiful village of Crondall. It was good to catch up with the lovely Reverend Tara Hellings who always brings such a vibrant energy and enthusiasm to the services she conducts. The service was beautiful, accompanied by the wonderful professional harpist to add to the romantic ambience!
Taz & Julie left the church to a flurry of confetti down the ancient church path and then it was off for more photography at Froyle Park.
Froyle Park is adorned with beautiful backdrops and settings everywhere you look. From the immaculate lawns at the front of the house to the outdoor dome and far-reaching views over the rolling Hampshire countryside, this venue really is a photographer’s dream!
After some romantic couple photographs using the best of the surroundings and some important family groups that Julie and Taz were keen to record, we captured the rest of the day in an informal, documentary style which is our favourite way to work.
Soon it was time for the delicious wedding breakfast in Froyle Park’s Grand Ballroom which is a stunning space with beautiful natural light complimenting the ornate panelling detail.
As the evening celebrations were about to begin, an extra special touch that the couple had planned was revealed – Julie had stunning stilettos for the ceremony and main part of the day, but at this point Taz led her onto the dancefloor and swapped her heels for some amazing personalised Converse for the evening reception! All in all a wonderful day with a lovely couple.
