Congratulations to Gemma & Adam who got married at Christchurch Priory then afterwards at Chewton Glen

In Chewton Glen Wedding Photography by Helen Rushton5 Comments

Being chosen to be someone’s Contemporary Wedding Photographer is always an honour and none more so than when I met Gemma and Adam at Chewton Glen in the New Forest, they welcomed me with open arms and every time I met with them before their big day it felt like I’d known them for ever. As their big day dawned I realised that it wasn’t only Gemma and Adam who were generous with their friendship as all their family and friends were also incredibly kind and so much fun (despite the chronic hay fever Steve, the bride’s father, was suffering from ;)) and Rev’d Darryl was one of the funniest and most laid back ministers I have ever had the pleasure of meeting, a perfect fit to marry Gemma & Adam!

Gemma and Adam were married on Saturday at Christchurch Priory with a huge crowd coming out to welcome them as Mr and Mrs Bennett (absolutely nothing to do with the Christchurch food and wine festival – oh no!) and afterwards they entertained, in fantastic style, their friends and family at Chewton Glen, one of the most beautiful venues in the New Forest. The sun was shining and if ever there was a perfect day on which to get married, Saturday was it!

So before the hay fever catches up with me too, I would just like to wish Gemma & Adam lots of love and a long and happy marriage together and share with you a few of my favourite photos from the day before their gallery is uploaded for friends and family on the 6th June. I look forward to reading your comments!!

  1. Hi Helen
    It was lovely to meet you at Gemma and Adam’s wedding. The taster of photos you have added so far are amazing and I can’t wait until the 6th June to see the rest. You have done them proud thank you so much.
    Many thanks

  2. Lovely to meet you too Mandy and I’m glad you like the photos – I can’t wait for Gemma and Dam to see the others!! Helen x

  3. Hi there,
    The proud father of the bride (my colleague) showed me these photos and I was overloaded with emotions (still are..)! These images make you experience the wedding without being in it. How amazing! I don’t know whether that has got to do with the happy couple (wow, what a stunning bride!!) or the photographer, let’s say it is somewhere in the middle 😉
    I give my love to Gemma and Adam and my sincere compliments to Helen.
    Best regards, Marloes

  4. Hi Marloes,
    Thank you very much indeed for your kind comments, letting people feel the emotions of a day is exactly what I try and capture so it’s always good to hear when I’ve got it right! Of course a beautiful bride always helps!
    Helen x
