Alice and Matt

Hampshire Wedding Photographer

I always thought it was going to be a good day when you eventually arrive at a wedding location called The Explosion Museum. I wasn't wrong. More on that in a minute. I started with the Alice, Bridesmaid and family (including the awesome grandma). Alice is mega organised so by the time I had arrived things were pretty much sorted. But that didn't mean no photos. I was touched by the time Alice spent with her Grandmother and how Buster, the sprocker, insisted I took his photo all the time. When I left to make my way to the church I could see its impressive steeple through the trees, calling to me. The church was impressive and the Vicar was very kind to allow me to join the choir for a fantastic angle that lent to great photos but also meant I was discreet. After the ceremony, Alice, Matt and I stopped off at a rather spectacular public garden which is quite special to her having lived nearby for many years. I liked that kind of spiritual connection. Now its time for the fireworks as we are heading to "Explosion! The Museum of Naval Firepower". A wedding at a weapons museum I hear you ask? Oh yes. Situated just across from the Naval yard its a fantastically unique location in Gosport that looks out over Portsmouth Harbour. Inside its basically a brick magazine which I suspect was once used to store munitions. It's dark. I'm not going to lie to you. I knew this before I arrived so came prepared with video lights and flashes. Fortunately the summer sun blessed us all and it was only the wedding breakfast and speeches where I had to use unique measures. Dancing always uses flashes. The wonderful folks at Vanilla Catering delivered an outstanding meal (for them as well as us). Thank you for the opportunity to share in your day.
