Mark Seymour is an award winning wedding photographer providing wedding photography in Hampshire and throughout the UK.
“Photography is not just my job, it’s my passion; I am so humbled every time a couple choose me as their wedding photographer, and each and every wedding day is as unique and special as the couple.”
Just a short drive away from where I am based and I am in the heart of the Hampshire countryside with its stunning New Forest and villages to explore, and some of the country’s most beautiful wedding locations, it’s not surprising that many brides choose a venue here to be married.
I have been working as a professional wedding photographer in Hampshire for many years. I am always delighted to receive enquiries from the Four Seasons Hampshire as one of their recommended suppliers of the hotel. The beautiful Georgian manor house has a real feel of old fashioned English country living. This coupled with all of the benefits of 21st-century luxuries and a location just outside of London with gorgeous gardens make this wedding venue in Hampshire pretty hard to beat.
The Four Seasons has an area attached to the ballroom, perfect for drinks and canapes, and time to meet with and be congratulated by your guests after the ceremony, surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows, it opens onto a spacious terrace with colourful potted flowers on a warm sunny day to enjoy. This space and lighting is wonderful for natural wedding documentary photography, to capture you and your guests.
The Lime Wood Hotel is a wonderful wedding venue that I have been lucky enough to be booked to photograph, and for me a perfect place to visit and stay. Classic, elegant and indulgent are the words I would use to describe this venue, and with the incredible food of Angela Hartnet and team, what’s not to love. Located in the heart of the New Forest, set in the lush Hampshire countryside, this exclusive Lyndhurst hotel is set in picturesque grounds with a forest walk and lake, gardens and courtyard for stunning wedding photographs.
Another lovely venue nestled in the New Forest is Rhinefield House, the perfect romantic setting in the village of Brokenhurst. It is part of the exclusive Hand Picked Hotels and offers luxurious accommodation including spa and a two red rosette restaurant, and the Gardens are stunning for your bridal portraits.
I am asked to photograph many barn weddings and Rivervale Barn set in the beautiful countryside of Hampshire is one of the loveliest. Rivervale is a contemporary barn in the grounds of the historic Yately Water Mill, built in 2009 and is a great space with lots of light and neutral tones, and will be dressed perfectly to fit your wedding theme. For your wedding photographs you and your guests can enjoy the picturesque gardens and Mediterranean style courtyard. In addition the bridal couple get to stay at the Cornstore Cottage, wonderfully romantic in its design, and gorgeous for your getting ready shots.
Tylney Hall is one of those venues that I always look forward to photographing at for many reasons, but namely the amazing grounds for photography and the great events team and their attention to detail on the couples big day, so you can relax and know everything has been attended to.
Tylney Hall, a romantic country house, set in Hampshire’s beautiful landscape, has four venues that are licenced for weddings, from a grand large wedding, to a small intimate gathering in a beautiful decorated individual period room. I love the baronial hall of Tylney Suite, which is perfect for a traditional wedding, the high vaulted ceiling and minstrels’ gallery is perfect for your wedding photography as is the walled garden for beautiful outside photography.
A venue you may be familiar with is Highclere Castle, but in its role as the Crawley family estate in television’s Downtown Abbey. Not only does the Castle have wonderful rooms for you and your guests to be photographed in, but there is a first floor gallery and sweeping staircase for your stunning bridal portraits. The Folly and garden lawns provide stunning backdrops with the house in the background for your beautiful wedding photography.
If you are looking for a documentary wedding photography to record your unique day in Hampshire I would love to be your photographer. I would love to meet with you or talk on the phone and please look at the venues pages for more photographs from Hampshire venues and my portfolios from some favourite weddings.
“I’m so glad we decided on Mark Seymour Photography. With a strong desire to remember our big day for years to come there was no doubt in our mind we had to rely on someone as professional, skilled and friendly as Mark. He certainly didn’t let us down.
Choosing anyone but Mark Seymour as our wedding photographer was out of the question; he really understand the importance of capturing the day perfectly through the lens. Mark has a strong desire to work with the couple rather than for them and this has been clear from the first time we met up until our album proofs.”
“We asked Mark to ‘be invisible’ as he captured our small and intimate wedding. No easy task but he did it with aplomb and has provided us with a truly beautiful record of our day. The photos are stunning and Mark himself is a pleasure to deal with; we could not be happier.”
“We would like to thank you so much for joining us in Italy to celebrate our wedding and make the occasion so memorable with the fantastic photographs that you took. The location was stunning and you’ve made our wedding day truly unforgettable. Many of our guests commented on your style and flair, we love how natural the pictures are and how they capture the celebrations from start to finish.
Thanks once again, you’ve done a fantastic job.”
We love your photos – some of them are spectacular. In spite of the pressure, you managed to capture all the events of the day and the atmosphere with out being intrusive.”
