Hampshire Wedding Photography – Kirsten & Nicholas

On Saturday 29th August 2015 I photographed the wedding of Kirsten and Nicholas in Farnborough, Hampshire. After meeting up with the bride at her parents’ home, I made my way to the marriage ceremony at Saint Michael’s Abbey. The Abbey is one of most impressive buildings that I have photographed a wedding ceremony. It is still home to an order of  Benedictine Monks, originally founded in 1881 by the French Empress Eugénie  as a mausoleum for her late husband Napoleon III and their son, the Prince Imperial, both of whom rest in the Imperial Crypt, along with Eugénie herself. The wedding reception was hosted a few miles down the round at the Meade Hall, located next to The Crown and Cushion, it is a medieval style banqueting hall, believed to be built from timber reclaimed from wrecks of the Spainish Armada. So all in all there was quite a lot of history involved with the wedding day, and as I witness the evening party heading into full swing, it may well be mentioned in the history books of epic celebrations.

 

“Just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for our fantastic wedding photos! We received these on Saturday morning and are delighted with them :)”
