Archive for Rhinefield House
Continuing with my remembering series I take a trip back down not Memory Lane, but rather Rhinefield Ornamental Drive. It funny how I look now at photos from a lovely spring wedding at Rhinefield House and I can literally feel the warmth of the sun. Light looks different at different times of the year and the way it looks can bring back certain feelings. I’ve always enjoyed working at Rhinefield. In fact, it was one of the first venues I had the luxury of working at many years ago.
If you are interested in the original post visit Belen and Damon’s Rhinefield House Wedding.
Saturday brought me another day of intense sunshine. It was also kind enough to deliver another wonderful couple…this time in the form of Belen and Damon (that’s pronounced Blen…NOT Bell-in, like the Toastmaster insisted on calling her). They too took the approach of ‘do what you do best’ and I’m glad they did. I’ve worked in a lot of venues. Some are great but not so much for photography. Then there are the Rhinefield Houses of this world. A place that give me so much to play with and in a way the works right into my strengths. Some weeks I’m fighting the system…but this week I’m a cog in the system. Being a wedding photographer at Rhinefield House still, IMHO, requires a certain skill. There are lots of pitfalls if you don’t where to look…photographic pitfalls. But with all things these are there to be overcome, conquered and made wholly yours.
Belen and Damon came to me as a recommendation from Kerry and Steve back in 2007. It was great to see them at the wedding. They haven’t changed a bit even after adding a bonny boy to the mix. A big thanks to all of them…one of recommending me and other for taking up the recommendation.

Hung out to dry
The hidden side of Belen
Nothing like a bit of symmetry
WATERSHED ALERT! (Author blushes) What to do? Its a hard one
Belen’s Dad…a quiet yet stoic man
It seemed an odd time for full contact Rugby
Some folks take the whole arrival thing a bit TOO serious…more on that later
Slightly OOF but I love it
“What…me…nervous? Nah…no way I’m gonna cry!”

As The Cure once said…Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me
Steve has pretty much everything stolen by the magician
The magnificent ‘Great Hall’ at Rhinefield House
Clearly someone doesn’t like dark chocolate
It would be irresponsible to show you what was on the screen that got this look. Let’s just say the willies that preceeded this were tame in comparison
Requisite Rhinefield House Wedding Photography shot…tick!
I literally have no idea…

And Now a Few From Darren
Bless Darren…he had mentioned he hadn’t felt great this week. I suspect the lure of a helicopter transfer aided in his Saturday morning recovery. At one point I lost him…just after the speeches. Not like Darren at all. But I carried on, getting my stuff set up for the Just One shot. He then appeared. He’d been worshiping to the porcelain gods, talking to ralph on the big white telephone…IOW, blowing chunks. But he picked himself up and finished the day with me. We did, however we did stop and leave a parcel somewhere in the New Forest. Sorry to the horses in advance.
“you got the rings?” …
Taxi for Robbins?

Sweet light…great shot Darren!
If ever a shot deserved a caption competition! Here’s mine…
“With loo roll stocks running low, an usher resorts to more unorthodox methods for personal hygiene”
The whole funny face cake shot thing is catching on

Another glorious day of sunshine at one of Hampshire’s finest venues…apparently voted one of the top venues around a few months back. They call it the jewel of the New Forest. I simply call it Rhinefield House. It was a day of firsts…OK one first, and I didn’t even get to experience it. Damon arrived by helicopter and owing to my giving character I let Darren take the trip. Nothing to do with me being 30 minutes away or perhaps not being of the physique required to squeeze in with the others chaps. What a guy I am :)
Today’s Just One is a simple portrait. But I know that with Belen and Damon heading off on honeymoon it would be an image they would like to see. I can show them the great moments on the blog tomorrow.
Even erupting volcanoes etc etc etc (more on that irony tomorrow)
