The Wedding of Jenny and Mat / Millbridge Court Wedding / Hampshire Wedding Photographer

Millbridge Court Wedding Venue

When I first met Jenny and Mat at their new home, and they told me they were getting married at Millbridge Court, I was delighted! Not only were they a beautifully happy, smiley couple, they were getting married at one of my favourite venues. Win win!

Millbridge Court is an exclusive, private hire wedding venue in the Surrey countryside. It offers weddings all year round, with the added option of being able to hold your ceremony outside in the warmer months. It is a stunning building, flooded with light, so makes for some really beautiful wedding photos. As you will see below…

The Morning Preparations

Jenny and her lovely bridesmaids all got ready for the wedding in the Bridal Changing Suite at Millbridge Court. It was a super chilled out morning, with Jenny showing no sign of nerves and everyone making the most of the opportunity to spend some time together before the main event.

During the morning I took the opportunity to nip downstairs and take some photographs of the amazing flowers being set up by Green Fingers Florists. I’ll let the photos speak for themselves, but I can honestly say that the arrangements for the wedding breakfast room were some of the best I’ve seen! I personally love a simple looking wedding arrangement with lot of greenery and these were just so, so effective. LOVE THEM. (Though I do feel I should add, knowing nothing about floristry at all - that although I say simple yet effective - they were actually anything but simple to put together. They must have taken hours!!)

While I was hanging out with Jenny and the ladies at Millbridge Court, Louise headed to the nearby pub to meet up with Mat and the rest of the Groomsmen. They all get ready at home, meeting in the pub for a quick pint and a snack, before heading down to greet the guests as they arrived at the Wedding Venue.

The Wedding Ceremony at Millbridge Court

What can I say about Millbridge Court as a wedding venue?! No matter what time of year you are getting married, the ceremony room is flooded with THE most amazing natural light.

Jenny and Mat chose a stunning floral arrangement to go at the front of the ceremony room, with some simple greenery tied to the chairs along the aisle.

Jenny was walked down the aisle by her proud Dad, to the beaming smiles of her guests and her husband to be!

During the Afternoon - Millbridge Court Wedding Reception

After the I do’s, it was time to head out into the pretty gardens and the AMAXING April sunshine. Yep, you heard me right. It was April… and it was H.O.T.

Guests threw confetti, listened to music and made the most of the outdoor Prosecco bar. With lots of mingling to be done and plenty of photos to take, the afternoon drinks reception just flew by.

Dinner and Speeches in the fab Millbridge Court Wedding Breakfast Room

Once everyone had had their fill of canapés and prosecco, it was almost a relief to head out of the sunshine and into the cool interior of the wedding breakfast room. This is one of those times when Millbridge Court really comes into it’s own. The room is light and airy, the flowers and table settings look amazing and there are even some cool shelves for hanging plants, candles and that all important ‘shelfie’. And the food is seriously good too.

Jenny and Mat decided to have their speeches before dinner, so that everyone could then relax and enjoy their meal. The speeches were perfect with just the right amount of tears, laughter and pictures of the Groom as a young boy. Ha!

The Evening Reception

After the wedding breakfast, the guests had a bit of time to hang out in the garden and make the most of the early evening sunshine, before heading back inside to dance the night away.

The Wedding of Tasha and Luke / Brookfield Hotel Wedding / Hampshire Wedding Photographer

Tasha and Luke-466.jpg
 

Bridal Preparations at the Brides Parents House

Tasha and her bridesmaids all got ready at her parents home in Waterlooville. I always think there is something really special about a bride getting ready at the home where she grew up, sharing stories of earlier years, often with the very girls she used to have round for tea after school.

From the minute I arrived, everyone was just so welcoming and the morning simply flew by! Wedding playlists, glasses of Prosecco and smiles all round were the order of the day. Top tip - don’t ask Alexa to tell you jokes on the morning of your wedding - they may not always be appropriate! Ha - enough said about that..

Groom Preparations at home

Contrary to popular belief, a wedding day isn’t just about the Bride, the Groom plays a pretty big part too! So while I spent the morning hanging out with the ladies, Annabel met up with Luke, who was getting ready at the home he and Tasha share. Although there is definitely less of the hair and make up, there are still lovely moments worth capturing. It’s definitely worth giving it some thought, if you are considering adding a second photographer to your wedding package.

The Wedding Ceremony

Tasha and Luke were married at St Thomas’ Church in Havant. I had never had the pleasure of photographing a wedding here before, so was in for a treat. Although a great deal of restoration work has been carried out in the past 100 years, the church itself originates almost 1000 years ago and feels really special, perfect for an intimate wedding service.

An Afternoon Reception at The Brookfield Hotel, Emsworth

On arrival at The Brookfield Hotel, everyone gathered for drinks in the bar, before heading out to the pretty garden, for photos.

Once the group photos were finished, Annabel and I took a few minutes with Tasha and Luke, to get some lovely photos of just the two of them, before we all headed inside for dinner and speeches.

After dinner, there was the arrival of the evening guests, before cutting the wedding cake and the first dance.

*

Tasha and Luke, Annabel and I had such a great time at your wedding - you are an absolutely brilliant couple, your friends and family made us feel welcome all day long - so much so, by the time we left we felt like another couple of guests! We wish you so much happiness together for many, many years to come :-)
