Bella & Ben, The Anchor Inn, Lower Froyle, Hampshire


Back in November, I had the privilege of again working with the amazing husband & team, Lilybean Photography as their second shooter. This time, for a really quite lovely intimate wedding, at The Anchor Inn in Lower Froyle Hampshire, celebrating the marriage of Bella & Ben.


The Anchor Inn is set in the gorgeous rolling fields of the Hampshire countryside, I can imagine it is a magical place to get married in late summer, just before the fields are harvested and the sun has the real warm orange glow in the evenings. Magic.


The day in question was a little colder than that late summer’s day though, however the sun shone in the morning and it stayed dried, which is always a bonus.


Being a guy, my friends find it bit odd when I tell them I have seen an amazing wedding dress, I have to take note anyway as my wife, Claire, ALWAYS asks me about the dress when I get home. Bella’s dress was a lovely lace number bought over from her home country of New Zealand, which was matched perfectly with comfy boots and a long velvet cape, the cape was made by her mother. She definitely needed the cape when we were outside – it was a bit ‘fresh’.


Another notable mention goes the staff of the Anchor Inn, a friendly and very hospitable bunch of people, who incidentally served up some of THE BEST Warm Apple Cider and Mulled Wine I have ever tasted.
