Rhinefield House New Forest Winter Wedding

Rhinefield House in the New Forest was the wedding venue Emma and Mark chose for their magical winter wedding. There's something special about Christmas even for big kids, so having a winter Christmas themed wedding worked perfectly within the setting of the oak panelled Grand Hall at Rhinefield Hotel in Hampshire.

Even though we have photographed many times at Rhinefield House, we always like to scope out wedding venues a little ahead of time if we are able. About 2 weeks before the wedding I popped down to see the wedding co-ordinator and have a good look round. At that time the large curtains were closed behind the Christmas tree in the Grand Hall and I asked if on the day they could be opened. This worked out perfectly for the ceremony images as from the back the Christmas tree was illuminated against the large window and from the front there was beautiful soft natural light for the couple throughout the wedding service.

We love photographing weddings and environmental portraits in the New Forest, Rhinefield Hotel is known as the "Jewel in the Forest" and though there are other great wedding venues in the New Forest the tree lined approach and romantic Gothic facade makes a beautiful backdrop for wedding images.

Emma and Mark picked the shortest day of the year for their wedding, the winter solstice (December 21st) the weather on the day could not have been better. Based on the rain through the summer we would recommend a lot more winter weddings! I think Mark was secretly wishing for a bit of snow but in the end it was very mild and we were able to use the outside for both the romantic alone shots and the semi-formal family images.

After the first dance we went outside with Emma and Mark to take some evening images with the hotel in the background and even then it didn't feel cold! A perfect finish to a magical day in the New Forest :)

    We looked for ages to find a photographer we liked, and when we met David and Teri we knew instantly that our search had ended. Having seen a small selection of their incredible photography, we could see how they captured the 'real' experience of such a special occasion. They understood from the beginning that we didn't want the traditional 'cut and dried' photographs and they came up trumps with photos that were relaxed, intimate, spontaneous and most importantly captured the true spirit of the day! They managed to tell our wonderful story from beginning to end. Unbelievably you would never even know they were there they are so unintrusive. When we first looked at the photos we were speechless. We never imagined there would be so many fantastic photos to choose from. It made the task of choosing the ones for our album a tough job. Luckily you also receive a disc with all the photos taken on the day as well! Thank you David and Teri for this perfect testimony of our wedding day. We recommend you guys a million times over!
