Rebecca & Paul got married a couple of weeks ago at Brighton Unitarian Church – not a location I’d had the chance to photograph in before, but one I’ve always admired from outside (hint. there’s a good pub opposite.) It’s a beautiful, imposing, white building, which really stands out against the more modern architecture popping up in that part of Brighton.
Having met them, a few weeks before their wedding, for their pre wedding photography session, I had a fair idea of what to expect from their day & was really excited to be a part of it, but their day totally surpassed exceptions from beginning to end. They are both so very fun to be around & their guests sure knew how to have a good time!
Kathy and Greg are celebrating their wedding at Amber Lakes in Windsor later in the year, but with the sudden up turn in the weather last month – decided to book in an engagement session and start practicing those wedding smiles!
Alex & Kelly got married a few weeks back at Brighton Registry Office – they are two of the most laid back, relaxed & friendly folks you could meet and their day was the most loving and intimate celebration at Brighton Town Hall.
Their love for each other shone through in every aspect of the day and the support and love from their families was evident, A wonderful, welcoming bunch who had traveled far and wide!
Also in attendance was Gary the Pug, who made a cheeky little appearance after the ceremony!
Jade and Dan are getting married later this month at the lovely Blackstock Barn in Hellingly, and are having us along photograph and video their special day.
They were keen to get in little bit of pre-wedding photo practice, So I met up with them last month in Hastings to help them to feel relaxed in front of the camera, discuss their plans and get to know them a bit.
Jena and Davy are getting married next month at the wonderful Fitzleroi Barn near Pulborough – and are having us along to both photograph and make a film of their celebrations. They were feeling a little nervous about the prospect of being photographed – so booked an engagement session to help them relax.
We met up one beautiful spring evening earlier in the month, at the gorgeous Stanmer Forest just outside of Brighton – timing it perfectly as the forest was looking particularly lush – and the bluebells were just springing into life.
Rosie and James got married in January in Bexhill, celebrating their wedding at the De La Warr Pavilion. With it being a 4pm ceremony, in winter – they knew they wouldn’t really be outside for a lot of the day, but as they were really keen to have light, bright and airy portraits, they chose to have their couple photos later in the year – once the weather improved.
Lucie and Rob got married a few weeks ago at Brighton Town Hall, in the beautifully intimate Fitzherbert Room. It was just Lucie, Rob and their two friends who acted as witnesses – along with the registrars of course, which created the most wonderfully relaxed atmosphere. I love small weddings and elopements and this was a perfect example of how to do it the right way.
Rosie and James’ had a beautiful wedding a few weeks ago at the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill. A 4pm ceremony in mid-January is expected to be a little colder and darker than the rest of the year – but Rosie and James, along with their friends and family lit up the day, with love, warmth, happiness and laughter.
It was a pleasure to witness, photograph and be a part of.
2017 – Wow. What an amazing and emotional year, full of beautiful Stories, Memories & Moments.
Getting to this point of the year, a traditionally quiet time for wedding photographers, provides a perfect opportunity for sitting back with a mug of coffee and taking a look through the previous 365 days, seeing the magic of a year unfolding across thousands of photos.
It’s easy to forget, but each photo represents a moment in time, a moment of incredible significance to the people involved. Moments I had the pleasure of witnessing and the honour of documenting.
It’s truly humbling.
