Our 2017 wedding season got off to a flying start at the gorgeous Three Choirs Vineyard in Hampshire. With Christmas & New Year celebrations still fresh in people’s minds, Becky & Greg extended the seasonal festivities to include their wedding in the first week of January.
The ceremony was at the impressive St John the Baptist Church in Lock’s Heath where they were married by Becky’s grandfather – an ordained vicar. Personal touches like this always add something very special to the sacrament of the ceremony. Following the formalities their guests enjoyed sloe-gin & nibbles before the main party got under way at the vineyard.
Becky & Greg were under no illusions of fine weather in January & so were perfectly happy to have photographs taken indoors to avoid the grey winter drizzle. Thankfully the interior of the vineyard is as stunning as it’s exterior & made for some beautiful wedding images!
They met as teenagers on the bus on the way to college, Becky & Greg, we’re delighted you chose to share your wedding journey with us! Here are just a few of our favourite photos to tell your story.

Becky’s four bridesmaids set up camp in the living room as they did their own hair & make-up!
Whilst Becky got ready in the solitude of one of the bedrooms. A friend did her hair & make-up.
Greg’s Dad’s house as also a hive of activity as the boys all got ready there.
Those last few moments of quietness with her Dad before a bride walks down the aisle!
The ceremony was at St Johns the Baptist Church & Becky & Greg were married by her Grandfather! It’s always so special when a family member is involved in the ceremony.
Rather than confetti they walked out under a tunnel of bubbles!
The reception was at the lovely Three Choirs Vineyard in Wickham. As it was the middle of winter & dark we shot the couples portraits & group photos indie the restaurant. I absolute LOVED the light in the room!
The meal was served family style with huge plates of food being brought to the tables & people sharing & serving themselves.
There were no formal speeches but Becky’s Dad stood up & said a couple of words before both Becky & Greg thanked people for coming.
Dessert was a ‘build your own cupcake’ bar!
And then the dancing started…!
