Rhinefield House Hotel Elopement : Ben & Chrissy

Nov 5, 2019

So, I am a little behind in catching up on some of the Summer’s blogging, as you may have noticed from the somewhat scattershot approach recently. November holds three more brilliant wedding days for me, but before we hold back the dark nights with those celebrations, here is a throwback to June. To a summer’s day when two utterly lovely people snuck away to Rhinefield House Hotel, in the New Forest for a Rhinefield house hotel elopement (the Just the two of us package I believe – and I absolutely love this idea!), and pledged their love to each other with just their registrars, myself, and a brilliant member of the Rhinefield staff to witness it.
Ben & Chrissy were amazing to photograph, and I can’t tell you what a bloody honour it was to be witness for them, to record, to photograph, and to be present at such a special time. I love my job.

THANK you, you two. I loved it. xxx

A note on elopements for Harpers Bazaar

“A rising group of modern couples want to get as far from the pomp, pressure and traditions of weddings as possible with the introduction of destination elopements. Pinterest says that searches for destination weddings in the mountains are up by 32 per cent, with other popular terms including ‘elopements at city halls’ and ‘elopements in forests’. Some want to go even further to ensure an intimate celebration – elopements in Maui, a small island part of the Hawaiian archipelago, are also rising in popularity.”



I shoot creative, modern wedding photography in Winchester, Hampshire, and throughout the UK. Wherever you are planning to say 'I do', and to whom, please get in touch.
