Matt & Emma decided to hold their big day at The Old Thorns Luxury Golf and Spa Hotel in gorgeous Hampshire. The venue itself is grand beyond all means. When you step through the doors of Old Thorns there is an air of class and indeed, as stated on their website they have a unique way of doing just about everything! The ambience was welcoming with a friendly hustle and bustle of guests and smiley staff.
With an instant warm feeling on arrival, we knew this was going to be an extraordinary day. Not only because this idillic venue was so well executed, but because Matt & Emma themselves are two of the nicest people you could meet.
We took time in the morning to capture pictures of both the Bride and Groom getting dolled up! Such a fantastic benefit of getting ready in one location 🙂 After Emma stepped into her beautiful dress, she walked arm in arm with her Father to greet Matt at the end of the aisle. This was a super emotional moment and the photos really do show so much love between these beautiful people. A gorgeous ceremony was followed by drinks on the terrace in the warm July sunshine. Of course, we took a moment to sweep Emma and Matt away on a golf buggy and found an abundance of awesome spots to capture some memories for the newly weds!
Matt & Emma’s speeches were somewhat out of the ordinary and certainly something we won’t be forgetting any time soon..! The traditional, emotional and beautiful speeches were rounded up by the most fantastic, crazy and superbly funny video of Matt & Emma’s family ‘working out’ (long story..) and it had the whole room in stitches! There wasn’t a dry eye in the room through both beautiful words and hilarity!
We stayed with Matt and Emma as they headed into their evening celebrations. We were lucky to be part of this all-round fun and beautiful day. We captured some fantastic images, a particular favourite was the boys and their super-hero shirts! Not to mention the red phone box which is certainly one of our favourites!
Matt & Emma, your day was out of this world. Perfect from start to finish and a fantastic balance of everything a wedding should be. The love between you is effortless. You are made for one another and we hope you have the best life as Husband and Wife! Most importantly, thank you for letting us join in on your memories, we enjoyed this wedding like we were guests <3
