Couple surprise guests at The Elvetham

Sophie and Anthony’s  summer wedding at The Elvetham, Hartley Wintney  in Hampshire, was graced by beautiful sunny weather. Not only was this a relief to the happy couple and invited wedding guests, but also to the wedding photographer too! I am there to record the event, and a blue sky usually makes my job so much easier. A wedding photographer is also there to capture the unexpected. It was clear during the planning of Sophie and Anthony’s Elvetham wedding that they were a lovely, and fun-loving, couple. They had planned that their special day at The Elvetham was going to be a fun day to be remembered and that was certainly the case. Jaws dropped as one of The Elvetham’s ‘waiters’ suddenly burst into song! Within moments, friends and family were on their feet, waving napkins in the air, and dancing a wedding breakfast conga between the tables and chairs. What a hoot!!

Thank you, Sophie and Anthony, for a day I will certainly remember!

Sophie and Anthony brought together brilliant suppliers to make their wedding day such a success. A big thank you to all!
