Airlee & Alex’s Sunny New Forest Wedding

May 13, 2012

Airlee & Alex were married yesterday in the beautiful setting of the New Forest in Hampshire.  There was actual sun present (I know!  Giant fiery ball in the middle of the solar system, you may remember it).  I had warmed to Airlee & Alex as soon as I met them, and on the day both their families just as warm & welcoming to me and my super sidekick for the day, Sarah.  Thank you for that, Ibbs & O’Briens – it makes all the difference!  Airlee looked like a silver screen goddess with Veronica Lake hair, red lips & an Oscar-worthy gown.  The wedding was set at the Balmer Lawn hotel, and Airlee & her friends had decorated the outside space with giant pom-poms, and transformed the inside into a vintage wonderland with handmade accessories, old books & gorgeous bunting.  I am reliably informed that friend Betty was somewhat of a superhero in helping Airlee in the transformation.  If you could come & do my house next Betty, that’d be great.

Alex & Airlee didn’t have the most stress-free of weddings days (understatement!), but all the unexpected things the day threw at them were dealt with with resilience & humour.  And at the end of it, their obvious love for each other blew everything else out of the water, and every single person there (myself included) had an amazing day right along with them.  I hope you feel this taste of your wedding pictures reflects that, guys, and have an amazing honeymoon xxx

    Ange … how do you do it? stunner after stunner after stunner. I love looking at your work probably almost as much as your clients look at their wedding day pictures.

    Wow actual sun after the rain we’ve had the last couple of weeks. Fabulous compositions enhanced by that lovely lovely sun. Gorgeous bride too….I particularly like the one of her with the silver haired lady.
