The Greyhound on the Test | Riverside Wedding | Hampshire

Jodie & Nathan’s outdoor riverside wedding was totally dreamy, and an absolute joy to be part of!

There were so many special elements of the day, and I loved taking in the gorgeous sights of Winchester, the stunning architecture, and of course, the beautiful couple!

The Greyhound on the Test was the perfect wedding reception venue, with the most incredible riverside garden & al fresco dining space!

I’m so delighted to share it with you all today, sit back, pop up your tootsies and enjoy!

Before the Ceremony

Getting ready with Jodie & her girls was the perfect, relaxed morning! Presents & cuddles were shared, and glorious hair & makeup prepared!

Jodie’s dress was just beyond pretty, with a lace sweetheart bodice and delicate sequin detail! Her Jenny Packham silver shoes added a real pop of elegant sparkle!

The soft pastel, beaded bridesmaid gowns looked amazing, and I loved the foliage bouquets!

Winchester Registry Office Wedding Ceremony

The ceremony took place at the stunning Elizabethan style, Bath stone registry offices in Winchester.

Jodie arrived in a classic cream vintage car, before heading inside with her beautiful bridesmaids. The intimate ceremony was held in the grand Castle room, with its deep blue tones filled with light, love & heartfelt vows.

After the ceremony and the perfect confetti moment, there were celebrations, followed by pictures of friends and family!

Then it was the perfect time for me to whisk off the happy couple for some gorgeous local adventures!

 

The Reception

After the ceremony, blessed with sunshine skies, we headed off to make the most of our beautiful surroundings. Winchester has so much to offer with stunning architecture, historic sights, and the best locations for couple portraits!

Following our adventures around the City, we headed off to the reception at The Greyhound on Test, where all the guests were waiting in the gorgeous riverside gardens!

Accompanied by guitar music, and glorious Summer weather, friends and family enjoyed delicious canapés and bubbles whilst looking out to the River Test! It really was the most dreamy setting to celebrate!

Evening Celebrations

The setting for this gorgeous al fresco dining experience was the garden courtyard. Decorated with festoon lighting & rustic wooden furniture, it gave a beautiful chic country vibe.

The florals were so pretty, with glass vases of sweet peas, and hydrangeas in pink and white tones, along with simple eucalyptus stems on the place settings!

After the celebratory feast, I took Jodie & Nathan away to catch the golden hour and take a moment in the late-day sun!
