Ballard School Wedding Photography - Annie and Jon

Still catching up with my blog posts from all of the weddings I did last year! Annie and Jon got married in the summer, it was a typical English summer's day - drizzly! This didn't have any impact on Annie and Jon having the best day of their lives - it was an amazing celebration and everyone looked their very best.

I started the day with the girls at Passford House Hotel - a place that's very special to me as I stayed there on my wedding night! It's a beautiful hotel and Annie was in one of their lovely suites.

This ring has been in Annie's family for a long time - isn't it gorgeous?

This is Annie giving her Dad a little present in the morning - they look so happy!

Aren't the colours so vibrant?

Sensible girl, sensible shoes for dancing in later!

I love the way her dress was hanging over the bath.

This is Annie's sister Caroline, chilling.

Everyone was on hand to help Annie get ready on time!

This is the moment when Annie gave her bridesmaids gifts and cards - there wasn't a dry eye in the room!

Then I made my way over to the chuch in Eling, near Totton where the boys were waiting.

Jon and his best man, David were very relaxed!

Jon's grandma flew halfway across the world to make it to the wedding, it was also her first time abroad!

Annie's parents also came a very long way as they live in Texas!


Annie and her mum Val look so pleased!

Then it was off to the reception at Ballard School, near New Milton in the New Forest. It's a great venue - the wedding co-ordinator Rachel, is one of the best, friendliest and helpful coordinators I've ever met. Nothing is too much for her. She does everything in her power to make your day perfect. I would thoroughly recommend her and I know Annie and Jon would too.

Strawberries and icecream - yummy!

Annie and Jon had a marquee in the grounds - it was stunning.

They like scrabble, so everyone had their names as scrabble pieces - took Annie hours!

There is this cute little garden area with rockery and pond which is just perfect for couple shots.

Love this stained glass window!

These are during the speeches - I think Annie's expression is priceless in this one!

Lots more laughter!

David's speech was very funny.

Thank you so much to Annie and Jon for making my day so easy and enjoyable - I felt very welcome at your big day and wish you both a long and happy marriage.
