I had the absolute pleasure of being Luke & Talie’s wedding videographer at Avington Park in Winchester. It was an absolute belter of a day!
There are several things I love about being a wedding videographer at Avington Park. Firstly the venue is stunning, secondly the venue is STUNNING.
The wedding day was co-ordinated by the ever so wonderful Beth A Weddings.

Talie started by getting ready at The Wykenham Arms.
The room was such a quaint little space full to the brim with bridesmaids.
I had to go through this amazing little restaurant to the back where they have a wonderfully tucked away little cottage.
Hair and make up was organised by the super talented Sarah Elizabeth Abbott and Victoria Oke.
When Talie’s flowers arrived from Jenni Bloom everyone instantly loved the beautiful December colours.
I made sure I got a cool shot of them.
Luke was getting ready just down the road where my legendary second shooter Mr Ed Bray was capturing all the groom preps.
The ceremony was to take place at The Hospital of St Cross in Winchester. This church is just breathtaking.
The court yard and entrance is just incredible, it just immediately transports you back in time.
The church itself is stunning with beautiful archways and delicate stain glass windows.
As a wedding videographer having a beautiful setting like this is just an absolute dream.
After Luke and Talie had tied the knot they left for Avington Park in a gorgeous red car borrowed from an old friend of the family.
At the reception everyone was greeted by a quartet and a nice glass of warm mulled wine. Everyone was chatting and catching up.
It was then time for us to go and get some lovely couple shots around the grounds of Avington Park.
Luke and Talie had opted to book me for just their wedding videography and had booked the very talented Stephen Duncan as their wedding photographer.
Off we went and explored some awesome backdrops Avington has to offer including a stunning row of trees, a bridge and a river!
Defying convention (just as one should do on your wedding day) Talie made a speech along with her maid of honour Farah, her Dad, Luke, Luke’s brother and a best man.
Half of the best man’s speech was delivered by a groomsman as the original best man was having a baby!
The speeches were full to the brim of emotion. The speeches can be one of the most important parts of any wedding videographer to capture as often a lot of the audio is used in their highlights film.
It was then time for some incredible wedding food from Kalm Kitchen.
The Evening Party
The party kicked off with an amazing retro photo booth which everybody loved.
There were costumes, sunglasses and Santa hats to get everyone feeling festive.
The photo booth had a glittery golden backdrop for people to have their picture taken.
It was then back into the main room for the dancing to commence!
