I first got to know Jacqueline and David a few years ago when I shot the wedding of two of their friends, Victoria & Graeme, so I was thrilled when they got in touch to book me for their own wedding.
Jacqueline and David met when they were both students at the University of Sussex, so it was a lovely touch that they decided to hold their wedding ceremony at the atmospheric Meeting House on the University’s campus.
The Meeting House really is an incredible venue: each window is filled with a different coloured pane of glass and when the sun shines it’s a bit like standing inside a kaleidoscope!
Jacqueline and David are an incredibly cool and stylish couple and their wedding day was no exception. Jacqueline arrived at the Meeting House in a vintage VW Beetle where David, looking incredibly dapper, was anxiously waiting to meet her.
After the ceremony, witnessed by Jacqueline and David’s friends and family, we headed on to Pangdean Barn for a lovely reception, delicious food, some really touching speeches and a good old boogie!
A gorgeous spring wedding and a thoroughly fab couple.

A few weeks ago I photographed a wedding. It was a very pretty, totally relaxed & utterly vintage day. It was the wedding of Victoria & Graeme.
When I met V&G… They told me their plans to have a vintage wedding theme – a 20’s vintage picnic type affair to be precise & I loved the idea! After our meeting they invited me to hang out & play Little Big Planet on the Playstation3 , which was awesome… & after our meeting/chatting/gaming session – I knew these were absolutely, 100% my kinda people, So when they booked me for their wedding I was very excited!
Over the following months I had the opportunity to get to know them a bit & the more I got to know them, the more I loved them & their plans for their wedding!
Then we had their gorgeous engagement session, on that hot day in June, (you know – the only one we’ve had this year…) Where their taste in vintage loveliness came through even more – So, the wedding was shaping up to be pretty amazing!
Now we start our story, on a different day to that of the actual wedding.
V wanted some pictures of her shoes & dress, but the schedule of their day didn’t allow for this, So I offered to start my coverage a few days early & get some details in the bag!
