Victoria & David’s intimate Hampshire Wedding

Feb 19, 2011

Vix & Dave’s wedding was my first of 2011, and I can honestly say I couldn’t have asked for a better one.  I was really excited about it (despite reports of heavy rain which helpfully held off) because when I had met them just a few weeks ago I just loved the ethos of the day.  Everything was home-made, from the table decorations to the bunting to the dinner of lasagne – prepared in the kitchen of the village hall.  The whole event was simple, unpretentious, and totally lovely.

They were married at the beautiful All Saints church in Catherington, Hampshire by a wonderful clergywoman helpfully named Angela.  The classic service was punctuated by the vows which had me weeping into my eyepiece (not helpful when it comes to focusing, really), and afterward they were incredibly good sports by acquiescing to my requests that they tromp through a very muddy field full of horse poo for their portraits.

I genuinely do consider being present at anybody’s wedding to be a complete privilege – but when the wedding is so small and intimate and important it is an absolute honour.  Thank you both, and thanks to Edward for being a sterling ‘Average’ Man and helping me corral the family for pictures, and to Jon for his (somewhat cheeky 🙂 assistant duties.  I will blog some more images as I edit them in a couple of weeks, but in the mean time – congratulations to Dave & Vix on a fabulous day and what I am convinced will be an amazing life together.

    These are incredible, Ange. The colors. THE COLORS!!!

    If only you’d been at my wedding to Sarah 11 years ago. Sigh…. Just need a Klingon ship and a slingshot around the sun.
