Beaulieu Hotel Wedding Photographer Kimberley Garrod photographing for Lara and Marc big wedding day.
What a amazing day blessed with the most amazing weather for February a little over cast a little sunshine followed by the most amazing sunset could not believe it how lucky these two were with there day. I am always hopeful my couples will get the most amazing weather but this day really did take my breathe away.
TIP: Its important to think about the weather in England as you never know what kind of weather you will have so be prepared with umbrella jackets and wellington boots if you plan to get married in the New Forest this will allow you to photograph outside in comfort also you may wish to have a extra pair of hand for your dress so a bridesmaid can always come in handy but extra pair of foot wear for them rather than hills is always a good top tip for Forest weddings. Also be flexible as you may have to change your ideas about your photography on the day but your photographer will guide you on the day to ensure you get the best possible outcome.
This venue is so lovely the location is great for photographs and you really are in the middle of the New Forest with amazing views. I have now photographed at this venue on four separate occasions and the venue really allows for you to put your personal stamp on it. Every wedding I have photographed here has been completely different. The staff are very friendly and helpful they really looked after me being very pregnant at the time of photographing this wedding.
This couple had some surprises for quests by having a singing waiter at dinner which I did not know about and felt a little bad as I asked him to get me a glass of water in the afternoon. Well he was standing in the bar! Hopefully he will let me off? It was so much fun and quests had great time having singing waiter dancing around the room and everyone singing along really fun thing to do.
The day was full of lots little details that were personal to Lara and Marc which really added a lovely feel to the day and personalised the wedding breakfast room. These two are so much in love and have the most lovely story it was a pleasure to be there photographer and be apart of there big day.
Here are just few images celebrating there day to give you a flavour of this amazing wedding day in New Forest.

Elmers Court Hotel Wedding Photographer Kimberley Garrod. Had the pleasure of being Dom and Lauren wedding photographer at Elmer’s Court wow what a day. The sun was shining and surrounded by lovely family and friends. Had such fun photographing these love birds and the story of their day, wish I could do it all over again. I meet Lauren and Dom possibly a year before the big day and kept in touch with them in the lead up to the wedding. Then a few weeks before met up and did a pre-wedding shoot and it turned out to be Dom’s birthday as well so not only involved in there wedding but also Dom’s birthday. The pre-shoot was so much fun and little cashew as well was a great character.
The wedding was beautifully styled by Lauren and simple elegant touches thought-out the venue which put their stamp on the day. Lauren took Dom’s breathe away as she walked down the aisle and even a little tear in my eye as the photographer these two are truly in love. This was my first wedding that I photographed after my wedding what a wedding to lead on from mine. What a amazing dress Lauren had fitted like a glove it was meant to be. The day was very relaxed and fun for the two of them they had a lovely wedding meal and had traditional speeches and cake cutting in early evening. The evening band were great fun even getting the groom to be a drummer for a bit. I ended up staying at this wedding for 14hours but what great fun I had a huge pleasure to be Lauren and Dom’s photographer.
After the big day was over received this lovely little message and feedback from Lauren and Dom.
“We would like to say a massive thank you to Kimberley for photographing our wedding yesterday. It was one of the best decisions we made for the day to choose Kimberley and she was just fantastic for the whole day. She made everyone she spoke to feel comfortable and has such a great personality which really made her an amazing part of our day. She worked so hard all day and not just taking photos, she was chatting with people, asking people if they were ok for drinks and just being really helpful. We cannot wait to see the pictures she has taken of our special day.
I will recommend Kimberley hands down to anyone who is getting married or wanting a photographer. Thank you so much again. Dom and Lauren xxxx”
