Connie and Julien’s French and Chinese wedding at Rhinefield House and Ocean City!

Connie is Chinese and Julien is French so they had an epic two part wedding to celebrate both of their family cultures! The wedding started at Rhinefield House in New Forest with mostly the French and Chinese family members. I love shooting in the New Forest as the random wildlife on the roads constantly delights me and it truly is one of the most stunning regions in England! Connie wore a gorgeous Maggie Sottero dress and Julien wore a bright blue suit with a pink tie. After their outdoor ceremony in the House gardens, they had drinks and canapes with lots of fun fancy dress and croquet and wasp stings(!), before going into the main hall for speeches and dinner! The next day we all went down to Ocean City restaurant in Bournemouth and had a traditional Chinese tea ceremony, cheeky games and introduced the French side to a full Chinese banquet including suckling pig and lobster on noodles (nom nom nom). And of course tried to teach them how to use chopsticks!

Thank you to Julien and Connie for having me at your wedding (and letting me take home a big box of pigeon!)
