Shay & Matt’s wedding at Froyle Park, Hampshire
When Shay and Matt asked me to capture their big day, as a Froyle Park wedding photographer, of course I jumped at the opportunity!
Surrounded by acres of picturesque Hampshire countryside, without doubt, Froyle Park made for a stunning backdrop for their big day. Landscaped gardens, elegant décor and especially the outdoor ceremony area of dreams come together to create a truly romantic setting. It’s certainly no wonder that Shay and Matt fell in love with the 16th century Jacobean manor house and knew it was the place they would tie the knot!
A fusion of cultures
In their own words, their vision for their day was ‘a blend of an English white wedding, and a traditional Indian celebration’. Oh boy they delivered! I’m not exaggerating when I say that Shay and Matt’s wedding had it all.
An incredible floral arch adorned the ceremony dome; stunning styling decorated the dining room; live guitarists soundtracked the bride down the aisle; indoor fireworks marked the cutting of the cake; dry ice flowed for the first dance. I could go on. It was nothing short of spectacular.
Why have one wedding outfit when you can have two?!
A highlight of the day was when the bride and groom did their outfit change. Later in the day they returned to surprise their guests in traditional Sri Lankan attire, complete with a new hair and make-up look for Shay. The couple’s first look of the day was very much an elegant and romantic one. Look two, however, was full on Hollywood glam! What’s more, the weather treated us to an amazing sunset – a golden hour to match Shay’s golden dress!
Shay and Matt’s evening celebrations included a game of Mr and Mrs, and one of the liveliest dancefloors I’ve ever seen – these two know how to party!
The whole day was full of so much fun and laughter. I felt truly honoured to have been part of such a wonderful occasion. I wish Shay and Matt all the best for an amazing lifetime together.
