Liss & Matt

A Winter Wedding at Brympton House. A heartwarming day in the middle of winter. The chapel was decorated with beautiful candles. Liss looked ethereal in her Sarah Janks dress. They danced the night away in the party barn. Good Times!

Blimey, where to start with this  Brympton House Wedding! A few weeks ago I headed along the coast to Somerset for Liss & Matt’s wedding at the stunning Brympton D’evercy House. I regularly travel west for weddings, including places like Bath and Bristol – always fun immersing oneself in a long-distance wedding!

Liv & Neil

Updated:14/3/19

I first met Liv back in 2012 at Heather & Tim’s Wedding – where she was the maid of honour & was immensely helpful throughout the day – especially during the group photos! So when her email dropped into my inbox enquiring If I’d be able to be her wedding photographer, for her Farbridge Barn Wedding – I was massively excited. Knowing the crowd & some of the family already, I knew it was going to be a relaxed, fun & friendly day – one that would be immensely fun to document.

Sarang & Claudia

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. The second was a full on Indian wedding at Bhasvic.

Milly & Chris

Milly & Chris got married late last year in St Peters Church, Firle, a firm favourite of ours! Afterwards they headed along the road to the incredible Firle Place to have a wonderful, sophisticated garden party in a marquee in the grounds of the house.

Firle is such a wonderful little place, we often go there for lunch at the Ram & a little wander around the village, so being able to photograph a wedding there is always special for us! (As of 2019, We’ve also a recommended photographer of Firle Place!)

Amy and Martyn

It’s such a pleasure to document a wedding so full of beauty and beautiful moments, and to witness such strong relationship between family and friends is truly special. Amy and Martyn’s wedding story was full of such moments, wonderful people and stunning, hand picked details – being set against the incredible backdrop that is Great Fosters, makes for a wedding story not to be missed.

Victoria & Jon

Victoria & Jon got married at The Barn at Bury Court – I’ve had a pleasure of photographing quite a few Bury Court Weddings over the years, So I know what a gorgeous venue it is! & having shot their engagement in the new forest & getting to know them over the past year or so, it was a day I’d been looking forward to for ages! It was doubley exciting, as I’ve been working with Victoria on a few other projects this past year; & over business lunches (mmm burgers!) I’d heard stories about their families, so I felt like I knew everyone before the day even began – & putting faces to names was great fun!

Featuring special guest appearances from Carolanne Armstrong – lovely working with you again! A good makeup artist makes a wedding photographers job so much easier, from managing timings in the morning to keeping everyone calm, not to mentioning the whole beautification process – I can’t say enough good things about Carolanne!

Jess & Chris

Jess & Chris got married at the Rumbolds Barn, near Billinghurst in Sussex. It’s a Barn wedding venue with wonderful outside space and a lake.  They had a fantastic outdoor ceremony surrounded by their family and friends. Drinks reception around the lake and on the lawns. The bride arrived in a Rolls Royce (Chris designed the interior!). Beautiful hand-made details in the barn. This wedding had it all.

We’ve covered lots of weddings at other barn wedding venues – Sussex Barn, Bury Court, Fitzleroi, Pangdean etc. and they always make for great days, so we were very excited to get to Rumbolds and it certainly did did not disappoint! It’s a really lovely space with beautiful gardens & a fantastic lake.

Louise & Craig

Louise & Craig got married earlier in the year, at the fantastic Barn at Bury Court in Surrey, it’s a venue I’ve had the privilege of working at many times before – I believe my first wedding there was about 2009! Time flies!

Bury Court Barn is an impressive wedding venue – filled with wow factor and with the most wonderful gardens in Bentley, Surrey. It really lends itself to big, fun summer weddings and with the ability to seamlessly transition from the magnificent indoor spaces to the gorgeous outdoor spaces – it really adds a relaxed vibe to any wedding day, and when the sun is shining the terraces transform into the most magical, relaxing space.

Louise and Craig knew this and they had planned just that!

They told me ahead of their wedding about their vision and what they wanted from their wedding photographs –  they wanted to share a perfect summers day with all of their friends and family and just have a lovely time enjoying delicious food and drink, having a big party, celebrating with everyone they know.

As always, Bury Court Barn looked absolutely beautiful and the gardens were in full bloom, Louise had really made the venue her own with a lovely summery colour pallet and lots of lovely hand made pom poms hanging from the vaulted ceiling.

This attention to detail, coupled with the fact that Louise & Craig really know how to throw an amazing party, made for a very lively day – it helped that all the groomsmen and ushers were all up for a great laugh  – and many of the guests work with Craig in the fire service – a more lively bunch of party animals you will seldom meet.

I started with Louise & her many bridesmaids at The Bush Hotel in nearby Farnham, a perfect spot to get ready as its reasonably close to Bury Court Barn, and allows for a really good sized wedding party – along with multiple makeup artists, hairstylists to get ready for a special day, in comfort. Louise was clearly nervous/excited – but her bridesmaids and mum really kept the atmosphere light and fun, stopping any nerves from taking over.

After the preparations, everything took place at Bury Court and everyone really embraced the indoor/outdoor vibe of the day and had the most wonderful time until the late hours on the terraces enjoying Hog Roast, champagne and music, as the sun slowly fell beneath the surrey hills.

Thank you L+C, so much, for having me along to document your beautiful day!
