I love it when a couple bring touches of their personalities into their wedding day and I believe it is essential to capture these details for them - it is after all these quirky details that gives a wedding day their own personal stamp! A favourite choice of grooms is a quirky sock, bow tie or braces! Below is a few of my favourite moments!

The Grange in Northington, Hampshire is a wonderful venue for weddings. Its picturesque setting and beautiful neo-classical manor house, with elegantly distressed interiors, gives creative couples the building blocks to create a unique and exceptionally romantic setting for their wedding day.
A wedding at The Grange Hampshire is not for everyone. However, if it is for you, there is nowhere else quite like it. A Grange wedding is a true reflection of the brides and grooms personalities and creative aspirations. No two weddings have been the same here, but each one has been a pleasure and privilege to photograph. The fabulous team at the Grange are a pleasure to work with, helping the couple make their vision a reality and ensuring the day unfolds exactly as planned. It is perhaps my favourite wedding venue in Hampshire and you can take a look at their brochure here https://thegrangehampshire.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/The-Grange-Hampshire-Wedding-Guide.pdf
