Sandford Springs 

Sandford Springs is a stunning sophisticated venue and golf course location for medium to large weddings between Newbury and Basingstoke with dedicated wedding spaces, a bridal suite on location and a hotel attached for all of your guests. The venue has a ceremony space, a drinks reception space and a dining space that is turned around after the wedding breakfast for dancing. On this occasion, the couple (Chloe & Brendon) were given a dedicated golf cart by the venue which was such a lovely addition to the day and made for some cute photos too.  


Wedding photography at at Sandford Springs is lovely and light with so many options for beautiful backdrops. The dedicated spaces are surrounded by lush greenery and a manicured golf course that boasts a fairly impressive sunset over the hills in the summer, a beautiful bridge surrounded by trees and there were even some baby ducks and geese in one of the few ponds.

Bridal Prep

There's something sacred about the getting ready time for brides, a few hours of self care, time with your girls to collect yourself and done right a proper relax before the big event. When choosing to cover your bridal prep I always recommend the following timings in order to really streamline that aspect of the morning. 

- You should aim to be ready 1.5 hours ahead of your ceremony time. This gives you time to allow for any delays, meet the registrar, first looks with any parents and subsequent makeup fixes, photos with your bridesmaids, bridal portraits etc. 

- I'll arrive 2 hours before your ceremony time to capture the finishing touches of your hair and makeup, first looks etc. 

- This is when I do flat lays if you want one!
