A little bit before Christmas (I know, I know, I’m slow at blogging!) Heather & I had the absolute honour of not only photographing, but being witnesses for the elopement of Laura & John. They traveled down from Northamptonshire for the day & tied the knot at Brighton Town Hall.
Late last year I had the pleasure of spending not one, but two beautiful days with Claudia & Sarang for their weddings.
The first wedding was at The Royal Pavilion, Brighton & included a lovely, intimate ceremony with their closest family, before heading over to Food For Friends, for a nice relaxed meal & some celebratory drinks.
Luki & Liam got engaged on Brighton beach , so when it came time to arrange their wedding – Brighton was the logical place to celebrate their big day! They got married at the beautiful Angel House, which is right on the seafront, a stones throw from where they got engaged & I can’t imagine a more perfect place for these two to tie the knot! A beautiful regency house, surrounded by their family, friends & lots of children including their daughter Luna – They made their day about fun, laughter & love.
A few weeks ago, I photographed the wedding of the wonderful Carrie & Ben – an American & a Englishman, who met in Israel & got married in Brighton! One of the most globetrotting couples I’ve ever had the pleasure of photographing.
Allison and Jack are a couple of total cuties who met at Guildford School of Acting in Surrey. Brighton has particular significance for them as it was where Jack proposed last year, so the couple picked the City as the venue for their big day. They were joined on the day by all their friends from the School of Acting and Allison’s relatives, who live in America and travelled over especially for the wedding.
During Easter break I headed along to one of my favourite spots in the city for an engagement session with the awesome Jessica, Hugh and Squid the dog. Stanmer Forest is on the outskirts of the Brighton and my own dog Thor absolutely loves it when I take him there so I knew I was in for a great day.
There couldn’t be a more fitting start to my wedding season than the gorgeous Valentine’s day wedding of Hannah and Jamie in Ditchling.
Ditching is really sweet little village, with lovely views of the Downs from St Margaret’s Church where the ceremony took place. And although the sun was shining, I have to hand it to Jamie and his groomsmen for braving the brisk February air and wearing kilts!
After a lovely church ceremony, it was just a short drive down the road to Pangdean Barns for food, fun and fizz!
Jamie is a massive Newcastle United supporter, so Hannah arranged for all the tables to be named in tribute to some of the team’s famous players. I’m not a massive football follower but even I recognized the delightful mullet of Kevin Keegan!
Chloe and James are a mega creative couple and their wedding, which took place in the grounds of Firle Place and Firle Riding School in Sussex, had a lovely village fete theme, complete with loads of outdoor circus-style games to keep their guests amused during the reception. They even had a mini tightrope – how awesome is that?!
Chloe the bride plays horn in the Uckfield Concert Brass band and her band chums played throughout the ceremony at the church and then again later at the wedding reception. But as an extra special touch the band was joined by Chloe herself on the horn. Seriously, she is one talented lady!
In a break from the traditional three course wedding breakfast Chloe and James laid on a fish and chip supper for the guests, all made fresh on site by a mobile fish and chip company, complete with optional mushy peas and lashings of tomato ketchup, salt and vinegar. As a chip connoisseur I can confirm they were utterly delicious.
And as a final awesome touch Chloe and James had hired some Charleston dancers to teach their guests a dance routine. The dancers were incredible and by the end of the night everyone was out of their seats and dancing their socks off. I bet there were some very sore feet the next day!
Chloe and James your wedding was utterly awesome. Thank you so much for letting me be a part of it and inspiring me to try my hand at juggling! x
