Wedding Elopement Photography Shoot

'A Calm Chaos'

Bignor Park Estate was shrouded in a cool mist the morning of this beautiful elopement Photography shoot. 

Many Sussex wedding suppliers had come together this fresh morning to create something rather special together. 

Nikki from The Toast had been collating and sharing her vision of earthen tones, dramatic features and soft textures for months and the anticipation of finally bringing this dream to life was tangible in the air.

The 200 year old stables and coach house at Bignor Park Estate was the perfect backdrop with white washed walls and rustic brickwork flooring. Each supplier brought so much life and creativity to this shoot displaying their talents in such a passionate and yet gentle and intricate way.

The various scenes you will see below showcase everything you would want for a unique and stunning wedding day in Sussex.

As a Sussex wedding photographer it’s always such an honour to be a part of shoots like this where you’re part of something bigger than yourself. There were so many incredible people who came together to make this happen and the photos from this wedding elopement style shoot were really something special.

This styled shoot was eventually featured in the FEB/MAR 2020 edition of Your Sussex Wedding with a dual spread of the best photos from the day. This edition of  actually featured my photography in various places throughout the magazine. You can read more about it in my blog post ‘Featured Wedding Photos’.

Just for the record, we didn’t take the cover photo – but this is the magazine that we were in!
