The 800 year old Abbey at Beaulieu, in Hampshire, was formed by the Cistercian Monks from France. It was later destroyed by Henry VIII, during his Dissolution of the Monastaries. Luckily for all of us, two of the buildings survived, the Monk’s Refectory, which is now the Parish Church of Beaulieu and the Monks Dormitory – known as the Domus. This is where Nat and James chose to wed in June 2013 on a glorious summers day. It’s a fabulous old building full of atmosphere and character.
Nat got ready in the morning at the Montagu Arms Hotel, which is a short walk from the Domus itself, so we started the day there, which was a nice for us, as we shot at the Montagu Arms for one of our first weddings, so it brought back some good memories of that day. The ceremony was held in the Domus, which, lit by candles made a fantastic setting for Nat to walk down the aisle to meet James. After the ceremony, the wedding party headed outside for champagne among the ruins. It was the perfect summer’s day that the couple had hoped for and we didn’t have to steal them away too far to get some relaxed portraits in this special venue.
This is a condensed set of images from Nat & James’s wedding, their final collection contained around 750 images. If you are planning a wedding at Beaulieu Domus, hopefully these images will give you an idea of how your own wedding could look at the venue, although obviously every wedding is uniquely different.
