The Bride and Groom


Contemporary Wedding Photography in Hampshire

Mr and Mrs Sealy’s wedding at the Elvetham Hotel in Hampshire and what a fantastic day it was, everything went perfectly. The weather was fantastic, the dress was beautiful, the flowers looked wonderful and the wedding party were all in great spirits.

Whilst shooting the Wedding the brides mother told me the story of how Michael and Theresa met, I thought it was such a good one I asked the bride if she could send me their story and hear it is for you all to enjoy.

Mike and I first met when we were both teenagers living in Barbados, I was 16 and Mike was 19. We live 5 minutes apart and our parents knew each other. We occasionally used to hang out with the same group of friends( a few of whom came to the wedding)! There was definitely an attraction  back then but we were both too young and silly to do anything about it.

We lost contact when I moved back to the UK from Barbados when I was 20. We often thought about each other but of course that was way before social network sites were around!!

Working for the airlines I had the luxury of going to Barbados once or twice a month. It was on one of these mini holidays that I bumped into Michael while out having lunch.

I saw a friend who I hadn’t seen for years and we were babbling away with excitement when Mike looked up from his table and recognised me…..  3 days later we were in love and we had mapped out our future.

1 year later Mike moved to the UK to pursue his Masters degree and take up residency.

We have been together for 11 years and have our beautiful daughter Marliah Alexi.

Mike wanted to do something special for my 40th birthday so he decided that nothing would be more special than giving me my fairytale ‘Happy ever after’ wedding on my birthday.

I hope you enjoy the images of such a wonderful day, If you want to keep up to date with my latest news on contemporary wedding photography then please follow me on my facebook or on my twitter
