The Old Dairy Hatherden Farm Wedding Photographer Kimberley Garrod.
The lovely Steph and Ant celebrated there wedding in style at St Mary Church Andover then at The Old Dairy Hatherden Farm Andover. Steph started the morning off with a run this was the most prefect start to the day go Steph not many brides start there day off with a run. This bride is truly unique. I met Steph at the Hair dressers in the morning which was a lovely pamper time for her and mum. Which was then followed by the most craziest hour of getting ready back at her mums house I have never photographed so quick, military style for sure the most amazing fun. The wedding was planned so well and the timings worked so well also it really helped meeting with the couple on three separate occasions before the day really got a good feel for what they wanted on the wedding from the photography.
Ant is a fellow wedding photographer so the pressure was on for this one. I had so much fun photographing this wedding I am so excited to share all the photographs with this lovely couple. But here is only a sneak peek if you wish of a small section of the photographs from this wedding to give you a taster.

The White Horse Romsey Wedding Photographer Kimberley Garrod. I had the pleasure of photographing Naomi and Alan wedding day which was a little different from normal little quirky wedding with close family and friends. With the most amazing flowers on the day and full of colour. The bride and groom have two little ones who were great fun on the day and had lots of attitude and style which made for some great outtake photographs. The church service was so lovely and really heart felt service which was a pleasure to be apart of on there big day and we also had the chance to escape for some lovely couple pictures before heading to the venue which was really nice for the couple to have time just the two of them. Highly recommend having time just the two of you to get some nice pictures and some time alone.
Well here is a little peek into there day a very small selection of the images just a taster if you wish.
