Naomi & Daniel

Naomi & Daniel - Photographs from their Worthing wedding

This was the first of my Worthing based weddings this year and first time photographing in the Worthing Chambers, with it’s fantastic high ceilings and high slim windows, allowing for some lovely light to fill the room. Naomi chose not to have getting ready shots, so it was straight to the ceremony where an emotional Daniel arrived, holding back tears of nerves and excitement in readiness for the unfolding. Naomi arrived shortly after with her Dad, oozing smiles and donning her stunning white wedding dress, accompanied with her beautiful bouquet of sunflowers.

Some couples hold back the emotion, keep it hidden in the English kind of way that we do but not Naomi & Daniel. The tears of joy and the sweet similes between them, especially during their wedding vowels, really showed off the love for us all to see. Lovely moments of embrace between them, which are shown here.

Following the ceremony, I drove Naomi & Daniel to the reception at the Thomas & Becket, for the guests to dine and drink in the company of the newly weds.

Here are a collection of images from the day.

Stephy & Matthew's pre wedding styled photography shoot

Stephy & Matthew live in Hong Kong and contacted me to ask if I would photograph them here in the UK, before they get married in Hong Kong next June. Unfortunately Matthew’s Grandparents will not be able to travel to Hong Kong next year, so the pre-wedding shoot was a mix of couple shots for Stephy & Matthew and some images of them with Matthew’s Grandparents, to try & replicate some of the shots, which will be missing on their wedding day.

We met at the Methodist Church in Goring, which had been kindly rented to us for a few hours. Stephy surprised me by appearing in her beautiful wedding dress, so we really did have a mini dress rehearsal for the day itself.

For the second part of the styled shoot, we headed to Goring Beach, so Stephy could seek out her first UK beach hut and see the full glory of the sunny UK seaside. We aptly ended the session in the grounds where Matthew’s Grandparents live.

Rosie & Rich pre wedding photo shoot

Pre wedding photo shoot, Arundel, West Sussex

Earlier this month I met up with Rosie and Rich for a pre wedding shoot, ahead of their wedding day, set for next spring. The main idea of the shoot, was for them to both get used to the camera lens but to also have some less formal images before their big day. The shoot took place at the Arundel Castle Cricket ground - although there were no signs of any cricket or the castle! 🙂 
The setting, autumn colours and brief moments of changing light, gave us some quite a nice range of images. Such a lovely couple and a pleasure to photograph - looking forward to the spring now and their special day at Highdown Vineyard.💟

If anyone is interested in a couple shoot or pre wedding shoot please contact me!

Wedding of Tracey & John at Ghyll Manor, Rusper, Horsham, West Sussex

A sunny Sussex is always going to make a great day for a wedding and fortunately, the sun shone for Tracey and John.

The Wedding venue was Ghyll manor, a charming 17th century manor nestled in the Sussex countryside, in the village of Rusper, near Horsham.

I arrived early to photograph Tracey getting ready in the hideaway Ghyll cottage, which made for some wonderful bridal prep photographs.

Bridesmaid, wedding Ghyll Manor, Sussex

It's always good to meet new suppliers at weddings and I was lucky to meet Jane from Wedding Hair At Home, who did a wonderful job in styling the bride and bridesmaids hair.

The Terrance Room held the Ceremony with approximately 80 guests. It's quite a tight space when everyone is present, so photographing Tracey and Jon had it's challenges but I love the way I captured the little looks and the smiles throughout. 

Bride and Groom wedding ceremony, Sussex

The moments before the Groom gets to see his beautiful bride... 

Wedding styling on the day was created by the wonderfully talented Jane @ special creations by Jane - sample of her beautiful work in the terrace room, photographed below. 

There were lots of great moments to photograph and document on the day, with some more formal group photographs and candid shots of people enjoying the sun and a sip of something summery but it was especially great being able to spend time photographing the bride and groom and their family in the gardens of the country estate.  

The last image is the look of love and really encapsulates the radiance of the couple during their first dance. I love this photograph because they look really lost in each other, enjoying their own moment, even though there are 80 or more onlookers.
