Wedding at Titchfield Abbey


Tichfield Abbey and Fareham Registry Office Wedding Photography

I love when couples make the locations a priority. It can make such a difference to wedding photos. I often try to get couples to venture away from their venue to get a different look, as wedding venue photos can sometimes start to appear the same. Whenever I get to a new venue and the wedding planner wants to show me the best spots for photos, I immediately start looking for other spots, because I know he/she has shown those spots to every photographer and I really strive to deliver something different to each of my clients. When Jessica mentioned to me they’d like to do photos at the old Titchfield Abbey it made my day.

The Venue

This beautiful run-down medieval structure dates back to 1222. As you arrive it has a stunning driveway entrance, you almost wouldn’t guess it was nearly in ruins. As you venture around the back of it you can see the collapsed walls, walk inside and look up through the towers and imagine a fire being lit in one of the giant hearths. But the ruins part is what makes this place so special, and made for some gorgeous portraits of Jessica and Lance.

The Wedding Day

Jessica and Lance planned a beautiful winter-time intimate affair. We met at the Abbey and untraditionally did photos before the ceremony. This gave us plenty of time to capture the part of the day that was most important to these two. They wanted to spend time together, just the two of them, on their wedding day. This took the time pressure off the rest of the day, as we would be losing the light around 4pm. We headed to the registry office where their closest family and friend were gathered, along with their baby boy, to witness them say their vows. Then down to the waterfront to catch the last of the winter light with a few more photos before they started their cozy waterside reception. It was a gorgeous day, and exactly what they wanted for their nuptials.

Tumbling in the waves
I've been meaning to do a bit of an update on this blog for a while, but every time I go to write one, I've felt like a bit of a fraud putting up beautiful photos of things I've been doing, and talking about how great everything is all the time, when recently, if I'm being honest, I've felt pretty out of sorts. I don't like to bring things down, and I have been doing a lot of fun stuff the past few months, but it's also been mixed with quite a bit of emotions and uncertainty. It's hard with social media, because connections are always surface level, and Facebook isn't a space I feel comfortable sharing really personal things, or the downside ...
Our Wedding :: The Week Before
So I've never been the girl who has had wedding dreams from an early age. When I met Eliot, I didn't hear wedding bells and start planning our nuptials. Although we often talked about it, I never really thought of it as a reality until we'd been together for 3 years and lived in 3 different countries.When Eliot proposed I was a clean slate. I had no expectations and I had absolutely no idea what our wedding would be like. But what I did know is that I loved him more than anything in the world and our wedding would be a product of both our dreams. I can honestly say, on January 8th, we lived our dream wedding. From start to finish, nothing ...
