On Sunday the 7th February I met my team at The Elevtham hotel in Hampshire for Carla and Oli wedding day. Myself and Laura began with taking photos of the venue while Matt headed to Farnham to meet Oli for grooms preparation.
Where The Elvetham now stands has a well documented history and in 1426 became the home of the Seymour family. The house was passed down through a succession of Seymours including Edward, the brother of Jane Seymour (third wife of Henry VIII and mother of Edward VI), who became Lord Protector to the boy King after the death of Henry VIII and who was eventually beheading for high treason in 1551.
We began bridal preparation with Carla and her bridesmaids it was a wonderful morning full of laughter and lots of champagne. Laura was able to take Carla bouquet around the venue to capture some stunning photos. All the flowers on the day were provided by www.castlestreetflowers.co.uk
Oli arrived at The Elevtham in a very cool Ferrari! Matt left at the same time as Oli but arrived before him so we think he had a good time in the car they were given for the day.
The ceremony was beautiful and Oli gave Carla son Jake a few high fives which we were able to capture.
The rest of the afternoon was very informal with friend and family congratulating the happy couple. During Oli speech he toasted the bride but instead of using fizz everyone was given a small bottle of jagermeister to do a shot with.
On Sunday we were also treated with storm Imogen, the couple were up for a rain shot so just after the main course before the rain got really heavy we took the couple outside to capture this stunning photo which you can see above! We were also able to do the sparkler photo with the help of the hotel front entrance which was under cover. The happy couple then did their first dance which was fantastic especially when all the friends helped them sing along!
Oli and Carla thank you so much for inviting DM Photography to your wedding, we had a wonderful time and hope you enjoy your photo-film. Dan
