Want to wear your wedding dress again? Then this is the perfect event for you and your friends no matter if you have been married or not or just really really want to wear a wedding dress. This is your excuse to buy one! It is a must to get involved with this event on the 10th May 2015. At Haskins Garden Centre West End Southampton.
For all information please go to link below for information on the event and how to get involved.
I have been photographing this morning to promote Bride in the aisle event with the lovely Zoe and Rich from Heart Radio who are supporting the event. Zoe’s been really showing off her modelling skills this morning with a selection of beautiful wedding dresses. While Rich has been playing the role of head bridesmaid, with helping Zoe find her one dream dress for this event. It is not easy finding the right dress so it seems there are 100′s out there but the event is fun so you can wear your wedding dress or why not support a local charity shop and see what you can find for the big event on the 10th May.
What lovely morning thank you everyone x
Sopley Mill Wedding Photographer Kimberley Garrod. Sopley Mill has become one of my favourite wedding venues to photograph at there are so many places to take pictures and it really allows for each couples wedding pictures to be completely different from the next. This venue has the added bonus as well as being your blank canvas and you can create whatever theme you wish. There are stunning views from every window and there is very much a homely feel.
I had a lovely time at this venue on Sunday the owner showed me around the grounds and all the secret little places to photograph. The weather was amazing for April. Most of this wedding was spent outside in the garden area enjoying the great British weather lucky pair.
What can I say about these two love birds Alison and Carl I met these two about a year before there wedding and then met before the wedding as well. We came up with lots of ideas between us for photography and the little touches on the day were just so adorable these two had really worked super hard in thinking about everything on the day. Alison’s dress wow was so pretty and Carl supporting a very handsome blue suit worked great together. These two are so very much in love and the ceremony was truly magical to be apart of and to see the love grow between these two even more. The day was followed by a selection of celebrations including ice cream bike outside and BBQ style food with speeches outside and photographs followed by a DJ set in the evening with lots happening in between. Below are a few images giving you a flavour of there big day.

The Master Builders Hotel Wedding Photographer Kimberley Garrod. A wedding with a difference this lovely pair had the most amazing day the weather was beautiful for April but what was even better was the wedding days itself. I have not photographed at the The Master Builders Hotel before I can can say what a beautiful venue to photograph in lots of amazing places for sunny photographs and also lots of places to use if you happen to get rain on the day. Here are a few pictures below to get a little idea off the venue and a few sneak peeks of Ian and Jenni’s wedding day. Wedding photographs are important to the couple and do not need to be splashed all over a blog 100′s of them so please see below enough images equivalent to a roll of 36 film to give you a little flavour.
Little write up from me about the venue;
The Master Builders Hotel is set close to the beautiful location of Beaulieu River and is the most perfect location for a wedding the hotel to give you freedom in working with you to create the day you truly want. The staff here at this hotel are lovely they really do look after you and take care of all the little details as well as the big things on the day. The team work smoothly together and the catering team produce food that is spectacular. They looked after me well on the day even though they had lots of other quests to look after they made a real effort to ensure I had a lunch and drink as well which was lovely. This Hotel has all the key ingredients for creating a perfect wedding day for you. For more information please visit the link below. 5 stars from me.

Engagement Shoots Southampton by Kimberley Garrod photography. Southampton is one location you might like to do a engagement shoot to allow you to feel more at ease in front of camera before the wedding day, or you may wish to just do a engagement shoot to celebrate being engaged. The idea of the shoot is not only to feel more at ease in front of camera but the perfect chance to ask your photographer questions and to speak to them in more detail about you. This allows the photographer to get to know your natural side and this really helps in creating the most relaxed style pictures for you.
I am pleased to share these images with you from Elaine and Jason pre-wedding shoot. This was a great opportunity for us all to get to know each other better before the big wedding day in May 2015. We went to a local country park in Southampton and I guided and supported this lovely pair in creating natural fun couple pictures. I can not begin to tell you how much fun these two are my face hurt from all the smiling and laughing that took place on this evening. We were blessed with the most amazing weather and below are a few images as a sneek peek into what could be achieved from a on location couple shoot. I simply can not wait to photograph this wedding in May I wonder what is in store next?
One very excited photographer here x
