Oakley Hall | Mark & Rachel
Congratulations to Mark and Rachel who were married on Saturday at Oakley Hall in Basingstoke.
We have been looking forward to this wedding for some time now as Rachel and Mark booked us two years ago. We couldn’t wait to see them both and catch up with one of our couples – Beth (Rachel’s bridesmaid) and Jason who we photographed back in 2015 at Farnham Castle.
We arrived in the morning to find Rachel busily getting ready with her three lovely bridesmaids and Mum. Rachel was full smiles and seemed relaxed ahead of the ceremony. The ceremony room was all set up ready and it looked so lovely. We headed over to Mark and the boys who were ready in the courtyard, James (Mark’s bestman) did a wonderful job at keeping everyone to time. Mark was also beaming ahead of the ceremony which was so lovely to see.
Back to Rachel who looked absolutely stunning in her dress, it was so lovely to see her friends and family all set for the ceremony. After a wonderful ceremony, we headed outside to capture some shots in the gorgeous grounds at Oakley Hall. It was rather chilly but we were all grateful that the rain held off and we managed to get what we wanted to for Mark and Rachel.
They have a wonderful network of friends and family which really added to their special day. We loved the Disney theme to the wedding breakfast and hope they have a wonderful time in Florida which they are jetting off to tomorrow!
We bumped into our couple who married at Oakley Hall five years to the day and were there having an anniversary meal! Such a small world and a wonderful feeling to see them again after all this time. So lovely to see Chris and Wendy! then we bumped into Sophie and Ashley who came to the evening celebrations for Mark and Rachel’s wedding! That’s three couples in one night – just fantastic!
Congratulations again to Mark and Rachel, we had such a wonderful time being a part of their day. Here’s a few images so far from their special day!
