Nicky and Alex - Lyndhurst Church, New Forest Wedding Photography

Recently I got to go back to one of my favourite childhood holiday locations to photograph the wedding of Nicky and Alex at Lyndhurst Church in the New Forst. I LOVE the New Forest (to the point that I think Nicky and Alex found it mildly amusing), I love the landscape, the tall, tall thin trees and the smell of Bracken. I had so much fun photographing the two of them together among some of my favourite things. Lyndhurst Church itself is lovely (although deceptively dark) and has one of the most random/fun Deacon's ever. He went back and forth in the programme but did so with such a great sense of humour that it made it all the more enjoyable. The best thing about him was that he was happy for me to do whatever I liked, to the point where he said he'd move out of my way any time I wanted. I've never had so much freedom, I of course didn't want him to move out of my way, that's not my style, but it's fun to not have so many rules and to have someone care more about what the couple wants than himself (which is strangely pretty rare in the wedding world). The reception took place at The Three Tuns in Bransgore where they have a marquee and a barn. The best thing about Nicky and Alex's day was all the laughing as you'll see.... :)

It may have been around here that I sat on something a bit thorny...

Goodness me, you were right about the laughter! Such a relaxed couple and a first for me ... I've never seen a donkey in a wedding shot before. As always, a wonderful representation of Nicky and Alex's wedding day and all best wishes to the couple.

I love the photograph where they see each other the first time up the aisle! You can really see they totally love each other. Well done for capturing all those moments!
