Sean and Carolynne’s wedding day at St. Paul’s Church, Tadley and The Hilton Hotel, Basingstoke, Hampshire on 21st May 2016.

Carolynne and Sean were having a church ceremony and their reception at the Hilton Hotel in Basingstoke.  The weather wasn’t too promising when I arrived at Carolynne’s mum’s home for her preparation photos.  She was getting ready there with her parents, sister in law, her daughter and niece and her friend who was her hairdresser.  Carolynne’s flowers were by Miss Mollies Florist and were stunning roses with bright blue accent flowers.  Her dress was slim fitting in beaded ivory embroidered fabric with a sweetheart neckline, straps and a beautifully draped low cut back, scalloped hem, long train and lots of sparkle at the waist.  Pretty bridesmaids with ivory lace bodices and deep blue pleated skirts matched beautifully.13254510_1091126200949733_5478729112784221974_n13233157_1091126187616401_2175819178050151442_n13239365_1091126220949731_5882477894874414721_n13256182_1091126390949714_7129765137018595048_n13260213_1091126190949734_8611306902901993500_n13267842_1091126694283017_4994641960227419888_n13237829_1091126727616347_4597440948059814619_n

Their ceremony was really lovely with meaningful gifts and stories from the vicar.  They had two readings from sister-in-law and Sean’s dad.13254149_1091127554282931_2130880116474395371_n13265922_1091127767616243_488332585428531042_n13310424_1091127914282895_1837461318515232838_n13256002_1091127340949619_5603917602362331105_n13237763_1091127654282921_6790131907012622686_n13233100_1091127397616280_9214791890101993921_n13240599_1091127707616249_4405295910680460977_n13237854_1091127534282933_5892589820568691637_n13241147_1091127400949613_3224611636182781921_n13235660_1091127520949601_2904902585932323475_o13254614_1091127840949569_1795263888819116460_n13254192_1091127974282889_4095536737729631047_nAlthough we took their group photographs in the church we had a lucky break in the rain in order to use the gardens at the vicarage for the couple photographs.  There are lovely distant views, stunning flowers and a cute swing so it was perfect.13237741_1091129497616070_1097629209318882037_n13263828_1091129227616097_4032924858810341981_n13254469_1091128384282848_1898209855257265371_n13256079_1091129740949379_4295131332342209_n13307454_1091129407616079_5630584792631116209_n13235116_1091128127616207_7113739560878975410_o13248348_1091128074282879_602825325231063567_o13244066_1091129034282783_3470329017240422827_o13263873_1091128980949455_1044558744682696475_n13255949_1091128844282802_444550349360410419_n13268011_1091128750949478_5171939507473830039_o13308272_1091128880949465_3234447441814402419_o13239013_1091129360949417_4048325628578579466_n13254830_1091128590949494_299069817630229216_o13266112_1091129554282731_8493779578542943534_n13235500_1091128447616175_4388439746654018687_o13239974_1091129637616056_1147715589448389895_n13260294_1091129287616091_6454283070359664101_nOn to the Hilton Hotel where their lovely flowers and decorations looked stunning.13237817_1091129774282709_8291754788804655137_n13267804_1091129727616047_7261004545463003349_n13240056_1091129864282700_7078984430289021554_nThere were emotional speeches by Dad, the best man, brother and the groom with lovely bouquets for the mums.13268501_1091130340949319_1349349424074668879_o13308746_1091130510949302_3451388720209773444_o13244167_1091130444282642_8519904719025325938_o
