Sophie & Adam – two of the most warm and welcoming people you could meet, had a wonderful wedding at Grittenham Barn & invited us along to document it.
Grittenham barns weddings are special to us, we photographed our first wedding their over 6 years ago and have been delighted to return for other weddings over the years. We have a brilliant relationship with Katherine, their wedding coordinator and the entire team, and are delighted to have a copy of Sophie and Adam’s wedding album on display at the venue. Grittenham, along with Bury Court are by far and away two of the wedding venues we’ve shot at the most – always good times!
In Early June, on a wonderfully warm, yet overcast day Eunji and Joe celebrated their wedding, surrounded by Sheep, at Wadhurst Castle in East Sussex. They brought their nearest and dearest family and friends from all across the globe and celebrated in beautiful, intimate style with an outdoor ceremony in the walled garden, followed by a delightful meal in the garden room.
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.
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 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.
Crawley is just a short drive away from where I live, so I’m often found in the area for weddings at popular venues such as Alexander House, Ashdown Park, Brookfield Barn, Crawley Registy Office, Nymans and Wakehurst Place (the last two are particular favorites of ours! – we do love a good National Trust place!)
Whether you’re aiming for an opulent affair in a hotel or country house, or something a little more rustic – like a teepee in a field, there’s a ton of options available & my 13 years experience of wedding photography tells me they can all look utterly stunning.
