West Sussex Farm Wedding

A distinctly different wedding day

Weddings, weddings weddings, the age old question, when you’ve been to so many are there any surprises left? Of course the answer is always yes, no two are ever the same, and just when you think you might know whats coming, bam! Something spontaneous happens. For Molly & Guys wedding, the whole day was full of surprises. I was pulled in at the last minute to cover for someone (which I was glad to do, its nice to be able to help people out) by the end of the day I was so pleased that I’d been a part of it. A wedding is of course, the most important, most memorable and perhaps the most costly day in your lives; I love that I’m part of a community that can help each other out to make sure everything is perfect.

Elegant buildings, apple orchard, enchanting grounds, totally secluded and set deep in the countryside, this place would provide the perfect backdrop for Weddings large and small. The venue is exclusive, you have freedom to roam the grounds and decorate it as you like and if the weather is in your favour, have the ceremony outside. We totally lucked out on the weather front, beautiful sunshine in the apple orchard made this into bit of a fairytale. There’s a ma-hoosive field for everyone to camp in, glamp it up with teepees or just roll back the years with a pop up fella from your festival going days, either way camp-fires, cider and acoustic guitars are going to make it an epic end to the day.

Molly and Guy, thank you guys so much, as a last minute replacement you made me feel so welcome. It was amazing to see two people so effortlessly in love, the shots after the ceremony coming back down the aisle are immense, sweet stares and massive smiles, THAT is what weddings are all about. Remember, all you need is love.

Manor By The Lake Cheltenham

Manor by the lake wedding, Cheltenham

It’s always tough meeting couples for the first time on the wedding day, sometimes it just cant be helped. Phone calls, email and Skype are magnificent, but being in someone’s presence is a real game changer. Luckily for me everyone at this intimate wedding made me feel so welcome from the start, so much so that I even got up and had a dance at the end :), this fabulous day dear readers was held at Manor by the lake, a beautiful little venue seemingly hidden in plain site. One minute you’re traversing the high street admiring the quaint shops and such, turn one corner and voila! A massive house set in splendid grounds, if you’re looking for a venue in Cheltenham, this is the one.

Manor by the lake is such a beautiful spot for a wedding, the entire venue is private hire so no intrusions and is run by an incredibly lovely set of staff on hand to help you navigate the grounds. Further fabulous people were encountered when I met the registrars, it makes such a difference when they’re jolly folk “take whatever pictures you want, just don’t roll around on the floor!”

Upon arrival I was free to wonder and assemble a little scene out of the dress and shoes, a double aspect room makes this particularly easy, as does a monstrous four post bed. This family is so close nit its amazing, the couple and their two children were all so happy together, family bundles and squidges all round. I love the moments shared between mum and daughter, I love them all and couldn’t edit them out. The day progressed with wine, laughter and ceilidh dancing, with some balloons thrown in for good measure. Luckily the weather held out long enough for us to make use of the grounds, the benefit of the venue is the covered walkway outside the front entrance, even if it is pouring down you can still seek shelter and take some outdoor shots in arches. A fantastic day, so glad to be a part of it, thanks guys, big love! Getting married at Manor by the lake? Give me a call!

Braxted Park Wedding Photographer – Nathan & Vikki

Braxted Park – Summer Wedding

The sheer magnificence of the Braxted Park has dazzled revellers and guests for many a year, as soon as you turn the corner at the top of the driveway, you know you are in a special place. Situated in Essex, living in London makes it an easy reach for me!

As you gather among family and friends to celebrate and begin a new life together, the house and grounds’ timeless majesty offers a powerful reminder of its history, the house itself being built in 1680. Even more incredible is All Saints Church that lies within the grounds which was originally built in about 1115!

Nathan and Vikki were blessed with the most outrageous sunshine to compliment their beautifully designed and crafted wedding. So much so that they were able to move the ceremony outside! It was beautiful, from a photographic point of view the whole ‘have to get married under a canopy law’ throws some new problems my way. The couple being stood in shade makes the light difference between them and the guests huge! So you cant really avoid blown out backgrounds. A real sweet touch was Nathan shedding a tear as Vikki glided down the aisle, the bridesmaids had stitched him up in the morning and put a bet on that he would!

Now then, the car – what a beast! I cant remember for the life of me what it was called, but its a Shelby cobra replica, and boy did it make a racquet, you know, a beastly car desirable racquet. Turns out you have to be dead careful getting in and out as the exhaust pipes down the sides will burn your ankles! I love the shots we managed to get in the grounds, the colours are just epic – fortunately our timing was perfect, an epic downpour followed as soon as we’d finished. The meal kicked off with singing waiters, I’d never seen this before but the bride and groom weren’t in on it and it was amazing, everyone was in pieces it was so funny – napkins waving, Sinatra blaring, couples dancing – epic. Such a fun day, I love Braxted Park, genuinely one of my favourite places, if you’re getting married there too and in need of a wedding photographer – give me a shout!

I was fortunate enough to have shot my first wedding video at Chilston Park, whenIi saw the staircase I couldn’t resist lining up this shot for the front cover of the film!

Chilston Park is a Grade 1 listed building and is an exclusive wedding venue in Kent. Set back from tree-lined lanes, the manor house at Chilston Park Hotel in Kent is set in 22 acres of parkland and features a two AA rosette restaurant.

Dodford Manor – A Barn Wedding

Dodford Manor is an exclusive use barn wedding venue set against a most magnificent backdrop of rolling Northamptonshire countryside. This is the type of venue you pull in to and instantly imagine where your shots are going to be taken. The rolling driveway and endless views over the countryside make it a fantastic venue to work at.

I’m told Dodford Manor underwent a massive restoration project in order to get it to its current state of splendor and it has really paid off. The layout of the venue is perfect, providing an intimate and secluded location whilst maintaining focus on the superb views.

Andy & Sarah contacted me quite some time ago, its amazing when a wedding day finally rolls around and it dawns on you that you’ve now known the couple for nearly two years. In that time I also shot the engagement session at stowe gardens which you can catch up on here if you missed it. Dodford Manor is packed with charm and the layout is excellent photographically speaking, it allows a sense of openness yet keeps the guests all in one place to make co-ordination much more efficient. As I’m sure you can guess my favourite shot is the sunset right at the end of the day, its just so epic! As soon as I saw that hill when I entered the venue I knew it had to be done. Have a browse through this brilliantly happy day and if you’re getting married at Dodford Manor in the future drop me a line!

Whittlebury Park Intimate Wedding

A glorious setting for a wedding, not having been to Whittlebury Park before it was a fantastic opportunity to visit a venue I’d heard so much about. Being local to Northampton again its a super opportunity to tick off another venue in the surrounding area.

Now then, the venue! Whittlebury Park has three separate areas where one can be married; the Orangery, the Pavilion/Marquee and the Atrium. The orangery is fantastic, huge windows at one end let the light flood in, even on an overcast or rainy day you could manipulate the venue in so many ways in order to get quality photos.

A charming feature of the layout is the positioning of the staircase. The bride can glide down the stairs in ethereal fashion while the adoring guests look on before emerging at the end of the aisle, and with those huge windows is completely backlit which gives a fantastic clean white canvas to work with. Upon further exploration the second entrance has some unique features which again would work in a couples favour if the weather took a turn for the worse. I sound like a salesman, back to the important bits!

Shortly after contacting me Aidan & Alia sent me a photograph of themselves, as soon as I saw them I instantly recognised them, both were in the year below me at secondary school! (go Denbigh!) Arriving on the day I was greeted with so many familiar faces and knew it was going to be awesome. These guys are so sweet, and two of the loveliest people I’ve met, just look at the pictures to see what I mean, such genuine joy at being together. Just around the corner from the orangery is a walkway lined with greenery which is perfect for group pictures and couple portraits. Some quality heckling made for a brilliant set of speeches, the boys then not being able to resist the urge for some more shall we say, relaxed pictures. ( the superhero thing was my idea, worked quite well I think!) rounded off with an amazing live band blasting out classic stevie wonder hits and you’ve got an amazing wedding day, congrats guys, so happy for you xx
