This glorious, chic Rhinefield House wedding was filled with classic details and gorgeous moments!
Rhinefield House Hotel, located deep within the New Forest National Park, has an aura of magic, the most magnificent architecture and stunning grounds!
I’m so excited to share this wedding story with you . . .
Before the Ceremony
We had a beautiful relaxed time getting ready with Samantha & her ladies at home, whilst Craig & his groomsmen got ready separately in a local hotel!
The chaps looked fab in their matching Navy suits from Ted Baker & I loved the lilac touches, which tyed in beautifully with the bridesmaid dresses!
Samantha’s look was classic, with stunning pearl detail peep toe heels, and the prettiest round posy rose bouquet, in lilacs and cream. Her Minster Bridal Boutique dress, with strapless sweetheart neckline & full skirt, looked incredible with the Samantha’s updo & veil.
Nestled amongst the trees, Samantha + Craig exchanged their vows in the most gorgeous local Church, surrounded by friends & family. It was such a special ceremony with heartfelt declarations + readings! A total joy to capture.
After the ceremony, we enjoyed the warmth of the day and the tranquil grounds of the Church!
Confetti celebrations & photos followed, with group shots by the studded Church door. It was then time to head to the amazing reception, travelling in style in the chauffeur driven Jaguar.
Chic Rhinefield House Wedding Reception
We arrived at Rhinefield House, welcomed by clear blue skies!
This incredible venue, with grand old-world architecture, was the most amazing backdrop to the wedding celebrations! Samantha + Craig gathered outside with their guests to make the most of the sunshine, whilst looking out to the ornamental pond and beautiful manicured grounds!
Friends and family roamed and explored, whilst I whisked away the happy couple to enjoy the spectacular setting!
Dream Decor & Speeches
As guests walked into the Armada restaurant, they were greeted by the most enchanting room! Towering ceilings, wood-panelled walls, and the most amazing pale pink marbled fireplace! Not only was the room beautiful, but the styling really was next level!
Created by Little Lillies, the styling carried through the lilac touches of the day, along with the prettiest table centres adorned with delicate white flowers! The magnificent three-tiered cake, decorated with lilac sugar roses & gold leaf took the stage behind the top table!!!
The speeches were inspired, and full of love & laughter! Often my part of the day, hearing all the stories and feelings shared about the happy couple!
Portraits & Celebrations
After the amazing speeches and a dream feast, I took Samantha & Craig off to enjoy the evening sun, and really make the most of the incredible grounds!
We wandered through tree-lined groves, and I captured some truly happy moments in the manicured gardens, whilst these two took in the serenity before the party!
Back inside the guests gathered to witness (and possibly devour) the incredible cake being cut!! Then it was time to let the dancing commence, and there was some serious dancing!!!
What an utter delight to be a part of this wedding extravaganza! A truly beautiful couple, a magical venue and a day to remember forever!
