Wedding Photographer in Hampshire: Fort Nelson near Portsmouth

Today I was wedding photographer at a local Hampshire wedding at Fort Nelson near Portsmouth. I was doing the wedding photography for Joanne and Malcolm. I love working at this venue which has some quirky and dramatic views for wedding photos.

I started off my day with some images of the getting ready phase at Mum and Dads house in Denvilles, Havant. I was able to shoot some detail shots of the dress, shoes and ring cushion in addition to a little make up and preparation of the bride and bridesmaids – before scooting off the venue nice and early.

After some photos with the boys - Joanne and her Dad arrived in a fantastic classic Yellow and Black Rolls (as previously photographed at my wedding on 24th April at Marwell Hall!!). The weather was threatening to disrupt things at arrival time and so we quickly completed some shots at the car before heading inside to meet the Hampshire Registrars (based at Fareham Register Offices).

We were lucky to get mostly dry conditions after a damp, cold start - for some great opportunities for photos around the museum.

Having photographed the ceremony and signing of the registers, we opted for some photos in the courtyard and then on the exposed grass frontage, the ramparts and at various locations, before the couple headed off for a short break from photos and a drive in the wedding car. After a few more photos upon their return, the guests progressed swiftly via a receiving line to a great meal, provided by the staff of Green Parrot Catering. You can view their website here: They provided me with a fab meal too – thanks!

The website of Fort Nelson is here: and I always enjoy working with the staff here and particularly Nicky who coordinates their events and weddings. It’s also FREE to visit and is great for children and also adults if you are ever in the area.

The images will be available for viewing for Joanne and Malcolm and their families very soon.
