Katie & Charles were married a few weeks ago at Firle Place Riding School – a hugely popular country house wedding venue in Sussex and one I’ve had the pleasure of returning to many times over the years for weddings.
Weddings just have something special. You can’t put your finger on it – It’s a sort of intangible magic.
Duaa and Titus’ Pelham House Wedding was packed full of this magic.
Not only did they put their beautiful Sussex wedding from the other side of the planet, in just a couple of months.
But they planned their day alongside relocating, across the globe + moving house + starting new jobs.
These guys certainly know how to make life tough for themselves – but they certainly pulled it off.
I met a lady a few years back at Becca and Phil’s wedding, at the time I didn’t know her name.
I remembered her fondly because she was the most excited about sparklers and the subject of one of my favourite photos. It was contagious – potentially the happiest face I’ve seen in a photograph ever. She’d been a fun and lively guest all day – but when the sparklers came out, she turned it up to 11.
Alice and Greg’s Cowdray House Wedding, just before Christmas was the most magical day!
Planning an afternoon ceremony in late December, Alice knew from the start it would likely be cold and dark (and as it turned out, wet!) meaning the majority of their day would be inside – something that we’re very used to working with, given the wonderfully unpredictable weather!
But she couldn’t have chosen a grander location, and she certainly couldn’t have picked a more fitting place for a Christmas wedding.
The Cowdray estate and Buck hall the room they used for their reception, looked perfect – including the biggest Christmas tree we have ever seen! We were also briefed to get lots of lovely photos of the fireplaces roaring away in the library – something that we naturally would have done, more so given the coldness of the day, any excuse to go near a lovely warm fire!
Alice got ready with her bridesmaids at the family home in Hampshire, and as she grew up in the house it was only right that we captured lots of details showing the history – like the lovely little detail on her childhood bedroom door!
A few weeks back, on what must have been the hottest day of the year, Kathy and Greg celebrated their wedding at a brand new wedding venue near Windsor in Surrey – The beautiful Amber Lakes. We were told they were only the second couple to have had their wedding at Amber Lakes (so far!), so we feel incredibly privileged to have been able to share their wedding day with them.
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!
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.
