New Forest Weddings in the Wood

This was my first visit to the New Forest Weddings in the Wood venue on Minstead Manor Estate near Lyndhurst, where Peter and Sarah opted to have their marriage ceremony. Belonging to a church that meets in a school hall rather than having a building of its own, they wanted to find somewhere suitably outdoors-y and epic to gather family and friends together. Sarah got ready at the family home in Southsea before driving across to the New Forest – complete with her bridesmaids in the rainbow-themed dresses she’d always dreamed of, a rainbow-coloured bridal bouquet, and Peter’s ushers matching up with their rainbow socks and ties. Laughing Sarah arrived in the rain and dashed in under a multicoloured umbrella, while the flower girl – in her colourful handmade dress from Etsy – nearly stopped the show (literally) as she milked her role of scattering petals on the way up the aisle.

It turned out to be a day of bright autumnal sunshine mixed with heavy showers – making for some beautiful light, but what else would you expect on a day themed around rainbows?!  Weddings in the Wood set up their chefs outside, putting together some delicious paella and pizzas for the buffet-style reception (there was absolutely loads of food). A university jazz band took the party into the evening, with campfire lit and sparklers for fun as well. Massive thanks to my photography assistant for the wedding, Naomi. We really enjoyed capturing this day!

Sarah’s mum helped her get into the bridal gown in the bedroom where Sarah was born. Talk about the circle of life – that seems hugely meaningful and emotional. And I just love Sarah’s expression when she tried to swap her engagement ring onto her other hand!
