Kim & Lee

Last month I headed off to Nymans garden in East Sussex for Kim and Lee’s wedding. I’ve shot many a wedding at Nymans and on a sunny day, when all the flowers are in bloom, it really is a beautiful venue!

After the ceremony we all headed back to Kim & Lee’s house for a champagne reception and BBQ. Kim and Lee have a fantastic home in the Sussex countryside overlooking fields – they have a whole host of animals including pigs, horses and two HUGE Great Danes.

As well as a BBQ guests were treated to an incredible sweetie bar, a magician and a live music. Later in the evening local band The Iron Boot Scrapers (a well-known Brighton busking band) were on hand to get all the guests up and dancing into the evening.

Such a wonderful happy day. Congratulations Kim & Lee!

Leah & Adam

Here’s a bit of midsummer gorgeousness for you in the form of Leah & Adam’s relaxed Nymans wedding.

Leah and Adam are one cool couple, so it goes without saying that they had a wedding to match, full to bursting with totally awesome details!

The wedding ceremony took place at Nyman’s Gardens and Leah and her family were staying at a cottage nearby the night before, so I met up with them there for the bridal preparations. It was also great to see Jeni Dodson, whose wedding I shot last year, doing Leah’s hair and makeup.

I spent a bit of time with Leah before heading over to Nyman’s to meet up with Adam and the rest of the wedding guests. And I was just in time to catch Adam having a final bit of guitar practice ready to play as Leah walked up the aisle to the Loggia. You don’t get more romantic than that!

After the ceremony guests were treated to a picnic lunch on the lawns of Nymans so I took the chance to steal Leah and Adam away for a few portraits in Nyman’s grounds.

Later on in the day we all headed off to nearby Copsale Hall for an outdoor wedding reception, catered by Brighton supper club hostess Cantina. The food was INCREDIBLE! As for details, woah, there were homemade cakes, outdoor games, (including pig throwing!) meadow flowers in jam jars, and all the menus and labels were designed by groom Adam, who is a designer by day.

This was such a great wedding to shoot, fantastic people, a mega creative couple, glorious weather and details a plenty!

Leah and Adam, I hope you had a fantastic time on your camper van honeymoon travels! x

Ivan & Gary

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing Ivan & Gary’s lovely, intimate gay wedding at Nymans Gardens, Even though it rained an insane amount, it was still a perfect day filled with love, laughter & beautiful moments.  They surrounded themselves with their families and the people they cared about the most & it was beautiful to be a part of! Having not photographed a gay wedding before, It was a great experience for me! Thanks for including me in your day, guys!

update: Since Ivan & Gary’s wonderful wedding way back in 2012, I’ve had the pleasure of photographing lots of gay weddings & lesbian weddings all across Brighton, Sussex & beyond. If you’re looking for a gay wedding photographer & like what the look of my work, don’t hesitate to get in touch! This was also my very first wedding at Nymans – a place I’ve been back to many times now for weddings!
