Stylish Village Hall Wedding - Rainy Day Wedding Rotherwick Village Hall

Stylish Village Hall Wedding

Weddings shouldn’t be about how much money you spend on them, they should be about people, hugs, kisses, love and fun. Even on a low budget, you can have a stylish village hall wedding, even the rain doesn’t have to spoil things.

Gemma and Joe’s wedding at Rotherwick Village Hall has to be one of our favourite weddings of all time. It really was a perfect example of how to spend money on the important things and save on others. And if it rains, then simply laugh and enjoy the day. It’s your wedding day after all and you don’t get to chose the weather, I’m afraid. The pictures playing crazy golf in the rain are brilliant. I’ll even forgive them that I got soaked shooting them.

The wedding day started with bridal preparations at Hannah’s Bed and Breakfast in central Winchester. Hair and makeup was by Ausra Ruksene, who we’d not worked with before, but came highly recommended by Kristina Gasperas one of my favourite makeup artists. The makeup was superb on the day. Not only that, but for pictures, we had the wonderful possibility of taking shots inside and also outside through the window. I love window reflections, but they are always hard to capture, so I was over the moon with Gemma’s bridal prep shots. Especially the black and white reflection shot, one of my all time favourite images. No trickery involved and no setting up of the shot, it was just shot through the window, as the makeup was proceeding. Natural candid wedding photography is all about capturing moments, not setting them up.

The ceremony was at Winchester Registry Office. The wedding reception was at Rotherwick Village Hall. Amazingly, their whole wedding cost them under £15k, which is amazing for such a stylish wedding.
