Romsey Abbey wedding photography on a gorgeously crisp and sunny Winter’s day. Angela & David’s Romsey Abbey wedding was an absolute beauty. What a stunning couple, what a beautiful day, what a magnificent venue, and what kilts! With some deep-running Scottish roots myself I’ve always felt a particular affinity with a wedding which boasts a few touches from north of the border. Here we had the works: piper, celidh, cold weather… but oh wow did we get some beautiful Winter light too!
I do particularly enjoy Romsey Abbey wedding photography. It’s such a beautiful building, in such a charming little town, and presents so many fantastic photo opportunities. I’ve always found everyone at the Abbey to be very relaxed about photography there during in a service (which is great, as you really don’t want to miss a thing with a stunning venue like this) but in fact my experience there has always been that you can very easily photograph the whole thing without ever drawing attention to yourself. The wide side aisles, the discreet little corners to tuck yourself in, the little windows and lines of view from behind the choir… It all adds up to one of those weddings where people remark afterwards that they had no idea you were even there.
Most couples I photograph who have planned an out-of-season wedding have long ago steeled themselves for whatever the weather might decide to throw at them (although in fact many of the sunniest days I’ve covered have happened deep into Winter) so when you get a day like today you really feel like you’ve lucked out. The light inside the Abbey was beautiful – you get that really low, directional and punchy kind of light at this time of year which just looks so dynamic in an image; love it!). Following the ceremony it also meant that guests were able to enjoy the sounds of the piper in the gardens to the south of the Abbey while we grabbed a few family photos by the north door. And then, to top it all, off to the New Forest for some couples in the most incredible sunshine before the reception at the Beaulieu Road Hotel.
As the speeches wrapped up and the wedding breakfast rolled into the evening’s celebrations, up struck the ceilidh. From careful observation through the course of many weddings, I very much believe that if you want to see some great action on the dancefloor at your wedding a band is a good bet, and if you want to see some real action make it a celidh band (and perhaps throw a little bit of whisky into the equation too…)
What an absolutely fabulous Winter wedding, and what a gorgeous couple. Huge congratulations to you both, Angela & David!
