A fantastic wedding day in the Sussex & Surrey countryside!Read More
Charlotte and David’s wedding day took place at the end of February at the beautiful Ghyll manor, a 17th century country manor nestled in the Sussex countryside, in the village of Rusper, near Horsham. If you are looking for a really special venue for your wedding day be sure to take a look.
The day of the wedding was cold and the skies were grey and dull; but it really didn’t matter. The wedding party totally embraced the day, which was wonderfully relaxed and high spirited.
I began the day photographing Charlotte getting ready with her Mum, bridesmaids and maid of honour and captured some wonderful moments. Luckily David was getting ready in the same location, so i was able to photograph the groom and the best men preparing for the day too.
The ceremony was full of moving moments, looks and smiles. After a couple of family shots in the chilly wind, I took a stroll with Charlotte & David to capture some moments of them together, away from the rest of the wedding party. Despite the lack of colour in the gardens at this time of year Charlotte and David made their own warmth and sunshine.
It was a wonderful wedding day and i'm really happy with the images created. In Charlotte's words:
"It was an amazing day.Beautiful photographs. Couldn't have asked for more. Daren was fantastic."

Here are a few more photographs from their special day:
I met Gill at a Sussex wedding venue in preparation for an upcoming themed, Alice in wonderland wedding. I had been asked by another local supplier, Special Creations by Jane to photograph some details of the day, including some of Gills floristry delights.
It was during the photo shoot that Gill asked me if I would be interested in photographing some of her wedding props and accessories, so she could potentially sell and display the items on her website.
So, on a sunny February day I travelled to the countryside "Gill Pike florist camp" and took a series of photographs of vintage glassware, milk churns, vintage ladders, milk churns, jugs and crates. I took a number of photos inside with the use of a portrait LAMP, with soft window light and a bunch of photos outside in the sunshine, using the natural backdrops.
So this was a product photography shoot, something a bit different, fun and challenging. Gill was a delight to work with, generous with her hospitality and her floristry workshop is really something very special and unique.

The products are beautiful and add a magic to any wedding day.
