A photo from the day - Ainé & Tom’s hot summer New Forest wedding

Ainé & Tom’s hot summer New Forest wedding

The Trusty Servant Inn, Minstead, The New Forest, Hampshire

 

It’s always special to be asked to photograph a wedding when you’ve known the bride since she was a little girl. So Ainé and Tom’s wedding was a particularly special day for me. It was a relaxed, chilled affair with a good dash of Irish charm.

Under the blistering hot sun Ainé’s sleeveless dress was a great choice. She wore her Grandmother’s pearl jewellery (her Mum wore the earrings on her wedding day too). Even the cat joined in, sporting a blue ribbon to match the bridesmaid’s dresses!

Their rings were handmade locally and they exchanged these in a ceremony at Southampton Registry Office.  Ainés little brother Kiaran was the ring bearer and took his responsibilities very seriously, he did an excellent job I must say.

The wedding breakfast took place in the heart of the New Forest at The Trusty Servant Inn, in the pretty village of Minstead. It’s a traditional country pub with a large back garden with its own outside barn. The marquee and barn were decorated in a simple rustic style with wooden benches covered with white cloths, flowers in jam jars and miles of pastel-coloured bunting giving a real party atmosphere. It was so refreshing to be at a wedding that was so informal, laid-back and relaxed.

The favours were handmade, jars filled with fudge and decorated with heart shaped labels impregnated with seeds that the guests could take away and plant. The cake was handmade and decorated by Ainé’s Mum. There were 3 delicious layers and each was a different flavour.

After the buffet meal and the speeches were done, Tom’s band ‘Shamrock Keys’ entertained the guests with some Irish folk music and it didn’t take long before they were all joining in with the Irish dancing, led by Dad, Mick. It was a real pleasure to see everyone having such a lovely time… congratulations Ainé and Tom and thank you for having me.
