Froyle Park Wedding Photographer
Jonathan and Rhoda’s Froyle Park wedding! It was the one I was looking forward to photographing for a long time.
I met the bride and groom to be some time ago to chat about the wedding and get to know each other. Therefore I knew it was going to be a great wedding day in a good company. The newlyweds are just such an amazing couple. Beautiful inside and outside, humble and warm. They made me feel so welcome at their Froyle Park wedding, I could hardly feel I’m at work!
Froyle Park Wedding Photos
This Froyle Park wedding photography was approached by me in the standard Blue Lily Weddings style. I simply let the happy couple enjoy their wedding day with their family and friends while documenting it on camera without any direction or intrusion. Small exceptions were the formal group photos and the bride and groom photoshoot. All done quickly and efficiently in a fun and relaxed way.
In the end, the bride and groom ended up with a set of photos telling a full story of their wedding day as it unfolded. By looking through them they can be transported to those moments and emotions they felt on the wedding day. Also, they could see all the little wedding moments they have missed!
Here is a short selection of images from this beautiful Froyle Park Wedding, enjoy!
Froyle Park Wedding Venue
Froyle Park is such a beautiful and complete Hampshire wedding venue. Simply perfect for any wedding photographer. It is situated between Hampshire and Surrey, just outside of London. This magnificent 16th Century Jacobean manor is surrounded by 80 acres of rolling Hampshire countryside, with beautiful views all the way to the horizon.
Froyle Park can host weddings for up to 300 guests and boast a great selection of beautiful rooms to cater to the needs of any bride and groom to be looking to get married in Hampshire:
This is where our bride and groom had their wedding ceremony. It is an elegant outdoor gazebo/dome with stunning countryside views as a backdrop. It can host up to 240 guests.
The Grand Ballroom
With up to 300 guest capacity it hosts most of wedding breakfasts and wedding party afterwards on most weddings I photographed at Foyle Park.
The Great Hall
The great hall at Froyle Park can host drinks receptions for up to 130 wedding guests, or wedding breakfast for up to 80 people. It is also great for wedding ceremonies. Its warm decor, large windows and oak cladding and ornamented fireplace are perfect backdrops for a wedding day photography.
The Drawing Room
Perfect for smaller weddings. It has a capacity of 40 guests for a wedding breakfast and 80 guests for a drinks reception.
Froyle Park has also a few smaller rooms which are perfect for kids play area or stunning and timeless wedding photos. It also has a beautiful oak staircase. All this makes it a truly versatile Hampshire wedding venue and perfect for the more documentary Blue Lily Weddings style of photography, as well as bride and groom shoot and formal group photos.
Froyle Park Wedding Day Photography
If I was to choose the best Hampshire wedding venue to photograph, Froyle Park would definitely be on top of the list. As I photographed there before, I knew it is going to be a good one. Fortunately, the weather was mostly on our side and the wedding ceremony took place in a gorgeous outside setting. The couple said their wedding vows surrounded by the bridal party, family and friends as well as rolling countryside hills. There were friends playing instruments and singing creating a beautiful ambience for all the gathered wedding guests.
The wedding ceremony was conducted by a good friend of the couple and was indeed quite original (in a good way!) and very personal. The favourite moment must have been when everyone was asked if they know of any reason why the couple shouldn’t get married. At that moment the brother of the bride (who also gave her away) stood up and half pulled his military sword from the sheath with a loud distinct sound. I almost dropped my camera laughing, what a priceless moment!
The rest of the Froyle Park wedding day was equally great. With super high bouquet toss (impressive throw Rhoda!), mouth-watering African wedding food and crazy synchronised dancefloor moves. And of course, the wedding speeches, some 8 of them if I remember correctly. There was one speech by the groom, the best man, the maid of honour, the mother of the bride and a few extra family members. Few of them had some memorable dance entrance walks and tears and laughter lasted for a good hour!
Also, big respect for the wedding video guy Junior. Not only was he a pleasure to work with, but he was able to record for hours supporting about 20lb of equipment just with his biceps. Can’t wait to see the whole footage mate!
Thank you, Jonathan and Rhoda. It has been a true pleasure to document your beautiful wedding! x
