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 & It was a 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.
Gina & Ben had us down to their beautiful house in Kent a few weeks back, for their magnificent, fun and relaxed fun fair wedding. They wanted a different take on the traditional wedding, and wanted to make it fun for everyone – so they had had an entire fun fair to entertain their guests, from a coconut shy to a ring toss, a strength tester, ice cream van and street food… and of course, an actual, full size, fully amazing, FERRIS WHEEL. I love weddings with a big focus on the guests having an amazing time – we’ve had a few weddings with circus games, fete style games and even one with flying pigs… but a full sized fun fair was certainly a first for us!
A few weeks ago, I traveled to Brookfield Barn, a brand new wedding venue, both in terms of it being the first wedding I’ve photographed there, but also in that it only opened a year or so ago! It’s very exciting to have such a great new venue right on my doorstep! It reminds me a little of another venue we frequent – Bury Court Barn, but is considerably closer!
I was there for the wedding of CJ and Luke, it was a date I felt I had highlighted on my calendar for a long time, as CJ first contacted me straight after I’d photographed Katie & Jason’s Barn wedding.
One of CJ’s 13 Bridesmaids, (yes you read that right! one-three. thirteen!) was Katie’s sister, so CJ had seen my work, loved my style and wanted me to be their photographer. When I get enquiries like that, they’re always super exciting – as I know some of the crowd already, and it becomes as if I’m just photographing a friends wedding, which is a pretty special thing to say.
Becca & Phil came down to Brighton for their engagement session a few weeks ago, Becca is an awesome make up artist, and has done so many weddings she must have seen hundreds of wedding photographers in action – so for her to book me for their wedding is both an incredible complement, but also a big pressure!
I love this wedding so much, it had everything about weddings that I love – from the location to the wonderful, friendly people, to tons of sumptuous details & heaps of rustic charm. I adore Lewes – it’s by far my favourite town! I essentially grew up there, and go back as much as I can! These days I find myself there for quite a few Pelham House Weddings too!
This was a fun evening. I met up with Rebecca & Paul a few weeks ago to discuss their wedding & do some pre wedding photography with them – their wedding is in a few weeks at Brighton Unitarian Church – I’m very excited to be shooting there as I’ve long admired it’s imposing white facade in New Road!
We met up in the Lanes just before sunset so we could make the most of that beautiful summery light (& catch that sexy flare I love so much!) & get some gorgeous engagement photos.
I’ve been photographing weddings at Notley Abbey for about 6-7 Years now & it’s always a great place to spend the day, Lisa & Dan’s wedding was no exception.
When I arrived Lisa & the girls were busily setting everything up & decorating the venue, as Lisa had put alot of thought into how the day would look, she wanted to make sure everything went perfectly before heading up to the bridal suite to transform into a stunning bride!
Dan & the boys were getting ready nearby, so I could catch both sides of their preparations, although I’m not sure whether it was the boys or the girls who used more hairspray!
A few weeks ago, Kate & Chris came down from London for the afternoon for their engagement session, to discuss their wedding & to hang around in a forest – Pretty Standard wedding photographer business then! We wandered around Stanmer Park, a stones throw from one of my favourite local wedding venues, Stanmer house.
They’re so chilled in front of the camera & so easy to chat to, their wedding at Bury Court Barn later this year is going to be great.
