DIY WEDDING AT BASINGSTOKE REGISTRY AND SHERFIELD ON LODDON VILLAGE HALL – AMY AND STEVE

A DIY WEDDING BRINGS SO MANY DIFFERENT TOUCHES, AND I LOVE SEEING EACH AND EVERYONE!

Amy and Steve got married in spring at the fab Basingstoke Registry, which is a beautiful venue in Basingstoke. It was a gorgeous day and even the weather played ball!

BRIDAL PREP

Amy got ready at her sister's house with her gorgeous sister and mum, and the atmosphere was so relaxed. She then rode the short trip to get to the ceremony. Steve got ready at his house with his best man. He traveled to the ceremony after making a quick pit stop to have a first peek at his new bride. The sneak peek was so lovely, and was such a sweet moment between the two!

THE CEREMONY

The ceremony was an intimate affair in a beautiful room at the registry. It provided such an intimate atmosphere and made everyone feel part of their ceremony. During the ceremony, they had several beautiful readings from friends and family. It was so beautiful and so personal.

THE RECEPTION

The reception was the beautiful main room in the village hall. It was a DIY wedding, which was so unique, just like them. I love shooting DIY weddings because the decor is so unusual and bespoke to each bride and groom. Every bit that went into the wedding was curated by Amy and Steve and made by either them or their friends.

For dinner, they had a food truck come by, which was such a great idea. It wasn't anything I've seen before, and I think it was the best burrito I've had in my entire life. The first dance was a romantic slow dance, and they finished off the evening with everyone dancing to the great tunes provided by their DJ.

The most fun part of the day was the quiz they ran with their guests because it made everyone laugh. It was such a great way for everyone to unite and get to know the fun little facts of Amy and Steve's relationship.

THE COUPLE

The couple met online and have been together for quite a few years. They got in touch with me in January and their inquiry intrigued me. They said they wanted a photographer who would be like a guest, and I loved that they were so relaxed.

Amy and Steve’s wedding was everything I love about weddings and so much fun. Here’s their wonderful wedding!
