Sopley Mill wedding photographer – Richard and Laura’s Wedding
Richard and Laura recently got married at the popular wedding venue Sopley Mill, Christchurch.
The celebrations began around 11am, with the groom and his friends heading to the local pub, The Woolpack Inn, whilst his bride was getting ready. Unknown to Richard, a friend who he had not seen for over a year had flown in from Australia to be at the wedding and was waiting as a surprise in the pub.
Meanwhile, Laura and her friends were enjoying champagne whilst getting ready in the Avon Suite back at Sopley Mill. The ceremony took place around 1pm with Richard and Laura exchanging their vows. Following the ceremony, the guests enjoyed canapés and drinks outside before making their way upstairs for the wedding breakfast. Richard and Laura surprised their guests with popcorn and a mini cinema setup showing a video of the couple and their friends.
After the wedding breakfast, the couple and their guests went outside and enjoyed games in the Sopley Mill grounds and ice cream. There was a duck race later that evening and then a disco and drinks for the evening guests. We took Richard and Laura aside for a short time early evening to get some formal couple shots in the grounds, and again in the evening once it was dark to get some photos against the beautifully lit Sopley Mill building.
Here are some photos from the wedding:
