Timeless and traditional always works like a charm. When Sophie and Daniel were married this summer they knew their day would be elegant and stylish, with pretty handmade touches and delicate detailing. I love the pretty colour scheme of dusky pinks and pastels, the little knitted dolls and the pretty tissue paper flowers decorating the marquee.
Sophie is breathtakingly gorgeous – a beautiful bride who says the day was “a little girl’s dream come true“. Her review of Hampshire wedding photographer Jennifer Sinclair is fabulous: “Not only is her work amazing she is also a lovely, fun, patient person. Jennifer has become a friend who we will always want to stay in contact with.”

Jennifer says, “The sunshine in the evening was amazing and I loved the warm golden light of the evening; perfect for a campsite fire outside the marquee. As a photographer, I love the photographs taken in between to the afternoon and evening reception; the guests are really relaxed and now having fun. One of my favourite photographs is of the three little girls ready to let the balloons go.
As a wedding photographer Sophie and Dan’s wedding is one that will always be very special to me. I love the photographs I captured and am so pleased that Dan and Sophie loved them. I have no doubt that Sophie and I will keep in touch!”
