East Close Hotel Wedding in the New Forest, Akiko and Keith

There are so many weddings we need to get onto the blog (our facebook page seems to have been updated more often recently but the blog needs some love as well!)

We love all kinds of weddings (which is a good thing really!) and love it when couples put their own personal touches to their day. Akiko and Keith's Autumn wedding at the East Close Hotel in the beautiful New Forest was one which included many well thought out details that were very meaningful and personal to them and their families.

One of the personal touches was Akiko's traditional Japanese wedding Kimono, so much colour and fun to photograph, made all the more special because of her families connection as traditional dress makers in Japan. Special attention must be paid to Keith's waistcoat, the material for it's construction was his grandfathers Kimono, so very cool and a wonderful way to not only personalise wedding details but to include memories of loved ones and create new memories.

The East Close Hotel on the outskirts of the beautiful New Forest and we have had the pleasure of photographing there many times. Such a wonderful venue with elegant high ceiling ceremony room and beautiful natural light from the doors leading out to the patio area. We always love to use environment for wedding photography and the venue is almost another guest at the wedding and certainly will form part of the memories of the day. If you do get chance to visit the East Close Hotel do look out to the gardens and check out the largest copper beach tree in the New Forest, very beautiful.

Thank you Akiko and Keith for inviting Teri and I to be part of your wedding day, we felt honoured to be part of such a special day and even though neither Teri nor I speak Japanese it was obvious how much love there is for the both of you, many congratulations! :)

  1. Teri, these are all SO BEAUTIFUL! That one against the blue background could have stepped out of any fashion magazine. Great job. This couple must be thrilled with your gorgeous work. :)

  2. The bride chose such a lovely bouquet! And the portrait of the bride in Japanese dress against the blue wall, just stellar. Well done!

  3. How beautiful! The portraits are stunning and the moments radiate happiness!

  4. I was trying to pick a favorite image to comment on, but there are so many that are absolute perfection.
    The last image (IR?) may be my favorite. But then again, there are about six more that could also be my favorite. And amazing collection.

  5. Teri, these are exquisite. Your clients are blessed to have your artistry and vision! I love the infrared image and the emotions you captured during the ceremony.

  6. What a gorgeous bride! Lovely images.
