Elmers Court Hotel Wedding Photographs with Kristy and Adam
You may remember the recent Bournemouth engagement shoot on the beach with Kristy and Adam. We had such fun we could hardly wait for their Elmers Court Hotel wedding day.
They had chosen to have a Romsey Abbey wedding followed by a reception at Elmers Court Hotel wedding venue.
Documentary Bridal Preparation Photographs
Our engagement photo shoot had definitely got Kristy used to our cameras. So, arriving at her family home in Hampshire on the wedding morning she was incredibly relaxed. This had then rubbed off on her bridesmaids and family.
In fact the morning preparations, hair and makeup, shoes, flowers, jewellery etc. was all so relaxed. I had to therefore remind myself that it was definitely a wedding day. As the sun was shining brightly the natural light in the house was beautifully diffused by net curtains. It made for some stunning wedding preparation photographs.
A classic ivory vintage Rolls Royce arrived outside. The bridesmaids put on their dark blue dresses. Kristy then announced that she was ready to get into her wedding dress. She descended the stairs to applauds from her bridesmaids and father.
Groom Preparation Wedding Photographs
Meanwhile the chaps were busy preparing at Elmers Court Hotel wedding venue in the New Forest. You could instantly see why they had chosen this particular wedding venue. A huge manor house in an isolated location, beautiful gardens and a lawn that swept down to the sea!
After donning suits, button holes and glass of champagne they headed off to Romsey Abbey to ready for the ceremony.
Romsey Abbey Wedding Ceremony Photographs
I found the Bridesmaids patiently waiting outside Romsey Abbey for the wedding car to arrive. Adam and his best man looking a little more nervous waiting on the inside. The abbey itself is a beautifully large wedding venue. It has great access for photographers around the entire building. Such vast size, stunning architecture, high ceilings and gorgeous detail makes it an incredible space to photograph.
The wedding ceremony was one of the less usual religious services we have seen in a while. With a couple of lovely speeches and then a sermon involving the offer of a glass of red!
Sticking to the non-alcoholic option, Kristy and Adam led their guests out into the bright sunshine outside. This gave the couple a chance to chat to their guests and enjoy the garden. Next they headed off to the Elmers Court Hotel wedding reception.
The wedding car, equipped with champagne transported the happy couple to Elmers Court Hotel wedding venue in Lymington.

The guests enjoyed a drinks reception on the sun terrace and lawns. We caught them admiring the views down to waterways and the architecture of this stunning venue.
Elmers Court Hotel Wedding Breakfast Photographs
At Elmers Court Hotel wedding breakfast was held in the dining room. Here, we found a huge stone fireplace and high decorative ceiling. This was perfect backdrop to capture pictures of the speeches.
There were quite a few jokes and a lot of heartfelt sentiment. Then the best man distributed photographs from Adam’s past amongst the guests. So it was pretty much a case of constant belly laughter from then on in.
Adam and Kristy then asked if they could have some unusual photographs of the bridal party. At the engagement shoot they liked unusual locations (under the pier). They love the potential for fun within images. So we disappeared down the gardens and into the trees!
Elmers Court Hotel Wedding Evening Reception Photographs
Whilst the dining room was transformed for the Elmers Court Hotel evening reception the sun began to set. As a result the grounds were filled with a warm golden light. So we organised a mass throwing of confetti.
Next, it was time to cut the cake and twirl about the dance floor for the first dance.
The day seemed to rocket past. Kristy and Adam’s infectious fun personalities seemed to rub off on everyone present.
As the expression goes “Time flies when you are having fun”. We thoroughly enjoyed creating Kristy and Adam’s wedding photographs.
