Weddings at the Wellington Arms Hampshire
Nestled in the heart of the picturesque Hampshire countryside, The Wellington Arms in Stratfield Turgis, is a wedding venue near Basingstoke. The old pub is part of the beautiful Wellington Estate where the 1st Duke of Wellington lived from 1818 to 1852.
The Wellington Arms is a fantastic refurbished country pub, hotel and events venue. Located not far from Hook, Basingstoke and Reading. Consisting of 25 stunning bedrooms, the 18th century main building makes for an excellent wedding venue for up to 120 daytime guests and 160 evening guests.
Becky & Adam had their wedding here last summer in the Rose Garden, with its lovely open sided barn and gorgeous flower arrangements by local florist Blooming Cow. Becky loves Bees and the wedding had a bit of a Bee theme, so Carol was very happy to capture one of the little beauties when it landed on the flowers during the ceremony. Love the shot about with the couple in the background, oblivious to our presence. Our photography is all about taking great images, but not intruding on the wedding day.
Another important part of Becky and Adam’s wedding was the Ping Pong. They met playing ping pong, so they just had to have a table at the wedding. Which made for some lively evening entertainment for them and their guests.
Choosing your Wedding Photographer
“Picking the right photographer to capture your wedding day is a daunting but exciting prospect. Making the decision to choose Paul and Carol (Tansley Photography) was the best decision we made for capturing our big day. From our initial enquiry to receiving our wedding gallery Paul and Carol were up front, honest, passionate, funny, professional, and most importantly authentic.
We built a genuine connection over the course of planning our wedding and on the wedding day itself where we felt relaxed and comfortable in their presence. They made it easy to be photographed for an entire day with the knowledge that they were there to capture our day, not to shoot us performing for them. We knew what to expect from their years of experience and we had complete trust in them.“Becky & Adam 2023
