SUNNY MAY WEDDING AT RHINEFIELD HOUSE IN THE NEW FOREST – CLAIRE & DUNK
Claire and Dunk got married at the grand Rhinefield House, in the New Forest, this May. It was a stunning outdoor wedding, with glorious sunshine and the best entrance to the wedding breakfast I’ve ever seen.
Claire got ready at home with her bridesmaids, and some family, and there was such an exciting vibe. All the girls were beautifully made up by Helen from Made Up and got ready together with Claire. She wore a Maggie Sottero Dress, and looked absolutely incredible. The group then hopped into a posh minibus to get to the ceremony. Claire’s Dad surprised her with a super flash car to drive them so they could arrive in style.
Dunk got ready at Rhinefield House and was lucky enough to get early access to the Bridal Suite so the lads could get ready in comfort! He wore a Moss Bros suit and looked v sophis. The boys then relaxed with a beer to greet the guests in the bar before the girls arrived.
The ceremony took place in the venue grounds at the Doric Temple. The ceremony area was outdoors, which was perfect for the surroundings, because it was a beautiful sunny day. The ceremony began with a beautiful reading, and finished with the couple dancing back down the aisle together. It was a gorgeous ceremony, full of so much love and lots of cheer.
After the ceremony, we took some time out for photos, which is such a great time for the newly married couple to have some time to let it sink in. Then we did some family photos, which was really chilled out. I got some lovely couples photos around the grounds and in the forest – the redwood trees are the perfect backdrop! The weather was all sunshine and blue skies, which was a welcome relief after the previous week’s weather!
For the reception, the couple had set up lawn games in the garden and a magician to provide some entertainment and everyone really enjoyed it. Everyone was then called in for dinner, and it was the best entrance I have ever seen. Claire and Dunk walked in to Sweet Caroline playing and the whole room were singing and swaying along, which was absolutely ace! It was such a great idea. They had speeches after the meal, which were brilliant – very amusing and had the whole room roaring.
After the meal was finished, everyone got straight on the dancefloor, and the party got started. The hilarious Johni from Real Event DJs kept everyone entertained all evening. This lot know how to party!
