Today I am delighted to share a lovely and relaxed Winchester Guildhall Wedding with a touch of pastel.
Images of the day were captured by Martin Bell Photography.
Martin Bell is a Wedding and Portrait Photographer based in Hampshire.
He is also a husband, a father, an ardent fan of Newcastle United, and used to be a professional Ballet Dancer.
He says of the Couples Big Day, “Caroline and Paul’s Winchester wedding had everything.”
“A gorgeous wedding venue in Winchester Guildhall, beautiful weather, fantastic speeches (Paul making his remarkable speech up on the spot!) and an extremely happy couple celebrating their love.”
“With family and friends having travelled from all across the world to be a part of the most special day in Caroline and Paul’s life, it was a wedding that will live long in my memory.”
“Winchester Guildhall is a very beautiful venue set in the middle Winchester city centre and it was for this reason that Caroline and Paul chose this wedding venue above all others.”
“The intimacy that both Caroline and Paul wanted to create was in abundance on the day and created some truly magical moments for their wedding photographs.”
Caroline, the Bride said “I’ve lived in Winchester all my life, Paul and I met there and Winchester Guildhall is practically next door to our house.”
“We wanted a big party with a relaxed atmosphere, nothing formal hence the afternoon tea theme – no heavy food.”
The vintage styled theme came out of the afternoon tea and the bunting being quite English.
“We just went with what we wanted rather than trying to match up specific colours. Our barn dance went down a storm – Spike Island – as did the bacon butties and the sweetie table.”
“Vanilla Catering, the catering company that we used, were excellent and so was our wedding photographer Martin Bell.”
“Penny Lane Flowers were also fabulous.”
“I don’t mind saying that we didn’t have a huge budget but wanted everyone there without picking and choosing guests hence doing most things ourselves.”
“For example my friend made our amazing cake and we created out own playlist.”
“The King Charles Hall at Winchester Guildhall looked even better than I thought it would and we loved every minute!!”
Thank you to Martin for showing this wonderful laid back wedding day where joy and family togetherness were the main focus.
Love the little DIY candle jars and the lovely bunting, and soft pastle colouring running throughout the day…just lovely!
