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.
Wow what a venue the most perfect place to hold your wedding reception. The most perfect blend between glam and barn with a DIY twist.

Rownhams House Wedding Photographer Kimberley Garrod. Well Rownhams House in Southampton is under new management and ownership and they kindly let a team of local wedding suppliers take over on May Bank holiday Monday. I am slightly impressed that the weather held out for this. The idea of the shoot was to showcase local suppliers and to work with a new team. I suppose you could say a shoot for fun, please note not a real bride and it is a styled test shoot. What a great day seeing everyones specialities come together in a selection of amazing photographs.
Here are a few photographs from the shoot to show you what can be created when you have the right suppliers and team together.

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.

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.
