Ramster Hall Wedding | Rupert and Fiona

A very special day indeed! Not only was it the wedding of the lovely Fiona and Rupert, but it was also my 30th birthday - the dedication and commitment ladies and gentlemen! 

Things kicked off at Liphook Golf Course where Rupert, best man Ben, brother-in-law-to-be Michael and father-in-law-to-be Nigel took on four fine holes in the morning drizzle. However, something seemed to be up with Rupert's game which peeked with a rather entertaining 12 stroke on a short hole - perhaps his thoughts were elsewhere?!
After the golf session I headed up to Haslemere to see how the girls were getting on. Fiona was super relaxed and everything was running like clockwork. The boys meanwhile were to be found having lunch at the White Horse and had an equally relaxing pint or two of Doombar in preparation for what was to come.

Now, as you can see it was wet. In fact it didn't stop raining all day. Yet this didn't faze Fiona, whose parent's house was just a few minutes from the church, she wanted to walk in her wellies! With a massive golf umbrella everything was kept dry and it was lovely moment to capture.
A traditional and elegant ceremony followed and Fiona's own work choir showcased their talent as well. 
Fast forward to the reception which was held at Ramster Hall, the perfect choice for a winter wedding, as it was very cosy and atmospheric inside. Jacaranda provided a faultless catering service. I had a brief chance to take a few pictures of Fiona and Rupert before they headed into the main room. I love the light in these pictures and the Christmas tree just visible in the background. 

Rupert and Fiona put on a wonderful display for the first dance which would have scored at least a 7 from Craig Revel Horwood. The band were the almighty Deloreons who I had the pleasure of shooting at Camilla and Nick's wedding just a few weeks before. And once again they managed to get everyone on the dance floor going for it...

And so it was that the end of the night drew close and Rupert whisked Fiona away to a brighter, sunnier future... starting in Mauritius!
