Jess and Jack had the most wonderful Solent Hotel and Spa wedding.
They’ve known each other for years because they went to the same junior school and had mutual friends. But it wasn’t until Jess’s 18th birthday when they got talking.
How did he propose?
“On my 22nd birthday while I was pregnant with Archie, after a family meal he drove us to Highcliffe beach (which is our favourite place and where we did our engagement shoot!). He left me in the car while he disappeared for a good half hour! After thinking he had done a runner, he came and got me and took me down to the beach where he had written “Will you marry me?” in the sand!Jess
The Wedding Day
The morning of the wedding day was so much fun with hair and make-up being done for Jess, her sister and her mother. Jack got ready at home with their two young boys who showed up in the sweetest little suits!
They invited just 28 of their most important people to watch them tie the knot at their Solent Hotel and Spa wedding. After the ceremony we ventured outside for photos and confetti whilst the sky threatened to rain on us!
Luckily the weather held out for us! We were desperate for a good sunset so we took the flashes to a nearby lake at sunset time to fake our own sunset!
But whilst we were there, the sun unexpectedly pierced through the clouds! We were blessed with the most incredible real sunset!
We got Jess and Jack back in time for their first dance and sparklers to end the night!
Thank you for having us capture your Solent Hotel and Spa wedding!

Myself and my husband had our engagement/family shoot and wedding shot by Natasha. We both don’t have our photos taken enough and we were so worried about it being awkward and the photos showing this. Natasha made us both so comfortable, at ease and we had so much fun shooting with her!
On our family shoot our children, 3 and 6 were not the best at listening and doing as they were told but natasha was amazing with them and I can’t believe how many amazing pictures we have of them! she made us all feel completely at ease and it was such a privilege to have her at our wedding.
I didn’t expect to LOVE every single photo that we got back but I do. We could not be happier with the photos. Thank you so much Natasha! xxxJess & Jack
