To say that Covid-19 threw a spanner in the works for weddings would be a massive understatement. 23 of my wonderful couples who had booked me as their Sussex wedding photographer had to postpone and rearrange their weddings booked for 2020, some of them 2 or three times over. My heart broke every time I…
One afternoon I received a phone call from the lovely Tamara who shared with me all her hopes for her dream wedding at the beautiful Nymans National Trust in Sussex. I honestly couldn’t imagine a more dreamy setting for a wedding than the beautiful arches of the Loggia in the Sunk Garden’s secluded lawn at…
It’s always a pleasure to get to know couples a few weeks or months before their big day on an engagement or pre-wedding shoot. Not only does it help us get to know each other before the wedding – but it also gets them used to being in front of the camera. As it happens, I knew Andy and Gen before so it was such a joy to get to photograph them shortly after they got engaged.
I’ve found that engagement photography is such a great bonus for couples because, as I mentioned, it gets them used to being in front of the camera – but more than that – it gives them some perfect, more casual photos, to go alongside their formal looks on the Big Day.
It was such a lovely late-afternoon stroll through Bramber Castle ruins and around the grounds in Steyning. Thanks for the opportunity to do this pre-wedding shoot, guys and I absolutely cannot wait to get your wedding photography to complete the set at your highly-anticipated wedding next week.
There’s always something especially romantic about February weddings, but sometimes you can find yourself at the mercy of the elements! However, a few weeks back now, I was able to share in Scott and Louises’ special day – and the weather stayed calm throughout the whole day. The crisp, almost Spring like, day showcased just some of the awesome Field Place settings and scenery that surrounded this amazing couple.
Both Scott and Louise’s fun and friendly personalities shone through the entire day. It was such a privilege to be asked to capture their marriage and be a part of their infectious joy that quickly spread throughout their guests.
Maybe it was best illustrated by Scott’s ‘being pulled away from the car’ idea, which was a fantastically funny scene to create and capture for them. Either that or Louise’s super-classy denim jacket with her new married name on the back. The day was filled with memorable moments just like these, and I loved every second of it – nearly as much as they clearly did. Congratulations to such a beautiful couple and thank-you for having me at your special celebration.
Being part of the family, this was always going to be a special wedding to photograph for me. It did mean juggling a couple of my own little munchkins throughout the day, something I doubt I’ll ever have to do again!
But it was a great privilege to do such a beautiful wedding in such a picturesque setting as Kings Weston House in Bristol. It made some perfect framing for Jeremy and Pin. Backdrops of giant blue walls, golden brickwork and luscious grounds made for the perfect pictures of such a special couple to me.
Summer…how I love your long evenings and the almost guarantee of that golden light that makes me smile from the inside out. Lydia and Michael’s engagement shoot was photographed on one of those perfect evenings with warm breeze, long shadows and golden sunshine. They had chosen Tilgate Park in Crawley for their engagement session and…
