If you live in Hampshire, then you are used to living in an area of outstanding beauty. From the South Downs to the glorious coastline, Hampshire is filled with idyllic places, and none is more beautiful than the New Forest. If you are planning a wedding in the New Forest, then using a Hampshire wedding photographer is a great idea, as they will have intimate knowledge of some of the wonderful places that you can feature in your wedding shoot.
Wedding photography doesn’t need to be limited to the venue that you have chosen. With a wealth of stunning areas in the county, taking your wedding shoot outside is a sure-fire way to ensure that your photos stand out.
Five New Forest Places for a Wedding Shoot
Brockenhurst to Bank
We are not expecting you to walk the 5km in all your wedding finery, but this picturesque walk takes in all the best bits of the New Forest, and there’s a good chance you’ll find some New Forest ponies.
If you are getting married in the spring, the New Forest is renowned for its bluebells. Bluebells don’t grow wild anywhere else in Europe, so it’s a uniquely English image to capture.
These beautiful gardens are filled with flowering bushes and plants. The rhododendrons are particularly stunning in the spring. The garden is full of little African huts and tree houses, all providing the perfect backdrop for a wedding shoot.
If you fancy a shoot by the sea, then go to Lymington. You can have pictures taken in the cobbled streets or just make the most of the harbour.
The Knightwood Oak
This is an enormous tree estimated to be between 400 and 600 years old. Its trunk alone is 7.4 metres in circumference, and it’s one of the oldest trees in the forest. It’s a wonderful location for a shoot.
Make an appointment with Lemontree photography and you can chat with them about which places are best for photographs.
The New Forest is so much more than just a venue, so make sure you make the most of all that it has to offer. These are just a few examples of the many beautiful places in the New Forest.
