Natural Wedding Photography in the New Forest

Why choose Helen Rushton Photography?

The most important part of choosing a wedding photographer is to find out whether they offer the service and photographs you are looking for, we start the process by discussing exactly what it is you want from your wedding photographer, the style of photographs you are looking for (candid, reportage, formal or a little of everything) and the type of wedding you are having, from a small and intimate wedding  to a lavish and indulgent wedding and everything inbetween, Helen Rushton Photography will provide you with photographic memories of your special day.

Wedding Day Coverage

Bridal Preparation

On the big day I’ll be there to capture the bridal preparations, the special moment you step into your gorgeous dress, the details of your jewellry and flowers, your bridesmaids and all the wonderful moments that make this your special day. Being a female photographer you wont feel embarrassed as I work discreetly in the background ensuring every detail is recorded for you. If we get time I’ll take some lovely portrait shots of you and your bridesmainds before you leave for the ceremony.

Groom and Groomsmen

I will then head off to where the ceremony is taking place and meet with the groom and groomsmen and take some formal and informal photographs of them whilst we wait for the big arrival of the bride.

Wedding Ceremony

As the ceremony unfolds I’ll be there in the right place to capture the most special of moments – the first time the groom sees the bride walking down the aisle, saying the vows, exchanging rings and of course your first kiss as husband and wife.

Group Photos

Despite the popularity of reportage and candid wedding photographs most couples do want a few groups shots. As soon as everyone is at your reception venue and has had a chance to freshen up we will bring your groups together for some fun and informal photographs and any specific requests you have in mind. We will have discuss your specific requirements so they are easy to organise and succinct so your guests can get back to enjoying themselves

Bride and Groom Photos

It’s usually by this time that the bride and groom want a little time to themselves. I’ll take you off somewhere private in the grounds or within your wedding reception venue where we can capture those essential photographic memories of your special day. Depending on what you are looking for and the time you have set aside, we may be able head off somewhere special and be more creative with the location. As well as some posed shots where you will be given help and advice, I’ll give you some space and capture those intimate moments that are natural and romantic.

Wedding Reception

The best photographs of your wedding reception will be the candid images of your guests as they are laughing and enjoying themselves. I make sure I mingle with your guests and capture great reportage style images for your album. I will also make sure all the details you have spent so much time planning are recorded like the table decorations, place settings, flowers.

When it comes to the speeches and cutting the cake I’ll be there to make sure I have the photographs you’ve asked me to take then I will take my leave letting you enjoy the rest of your special day amongst family and friends.

Whilst you are on honeymoon I will professionally edit all the images taken and put together a collection of the images to review with you upon your return. We’ll get together and go through the images so you can select exactly what you want in your wedding album.

Your photographer is the only person who sees every part of your special day, by working with Helen you are guaranteed to get the results you have asked for in the style you have asked for.
