A Sunny Garden Ceremony in Hampshire

Caroline & Joe picked a stunner of a weekend for their garden wedding ceremony in Hampshire. Having the wedding at her childhood home was a wonderful way to make their big day that extra bit special. With the knot well and truly tied, it was off to The Long Barn, another stunning location, for the drinks reception, wedding breakfast, and to celebrate into the early hours!

Garden Wedding Ceremony

Caroline’s parents had been hard at work making their garden the perfect setting for the afternoon’s ceremony as I arrived. The mood was one of calm excitement throughout the house, and when I found Caroline having her make-up done, she was all smiles. In fact, she wore that smile for almost the entire day!

It was wonderful to meet and work with Amy Firth who was the celebrant for the ceremony. She did an absolutely fantastic job and helped to make the ceremony a truly memorable one.

Long Barn Wedding Photographer

We left the garden to be cleared up by the wedding pixies and made the beautiful drive to The Long Barn. It’s great when the weather plays nice. Driving between venues on days like this is such a lovely part of the wedding day. Especially with countryside like this!

The Long Barn is a stunning venue! When you walk inside, seeing it all set up, with those lovely wooden beams above you stretching away down the barn, it really stops you in your tracks. These guys had chosen wisely. The wedding would’ve been held in here if we’d had rain. And for a moment, I almost wished we had. But nah, I’d pick sun over rain any day!

With the wedding breakfast and speeches concluded, with some excellent singing courtesy of the bridesmaids, it came to the first dance. Only Caroline and Joe had something a little different in mind. Rather than shuffling around the dance floor in front of everyone, they organised Regency style ballroom dancing. Which was a first for me, as well as most of the guests, I reckon. It was a roaring success and a great way to get everyone involved.
