In association with Will Wareham Photo​

I first met Bex​ & Tom​ last winter, at the stunning Rhinefield House Hotel​ deep in the heart of the New Forest​. Upon my arrival, I was greeted by a host of parents, siblings and children, everyone apologetic for invading the party. “Not at all”, I exclaimed to Bex’s Dad and “yes please, I’d love a beer!” What a wonderful welcome and from that moment on, I knew this was going to be a very special wedding day.

It was briefly explained that this was to be a family, Christmas wedding celebration – but in November. As you shall see, and to my astonishment, the brief was fulfilled, to nothing short of an absolute T.

When the big day finally came around, the welcomes were equally as warm and it was plain for all to see that Bex & Tom were still truly, madly and deeply in love.

Once again, an enormous thank you to the talented Mr. Will. Wareham for sharing this great pleasure with me and for photographing some absolutely breathtaking images. Here are a few of our favourites from Christmas Day (in November):
