This was the first time I’d been asked to photograph a wedding at Amberley Castle, so I was especially excited as it’s one of those magical wedding venues. It’s totally romantic, lying in the picturesque Sussex village of Amberley, at the foot of the South Downs, with stunning medieval architecture and fairytale like garden backdrops. There were plenty hidden corners amongst the castle grounds too. Lorraine & Ross booked me for just a few hours to document the wedding ceremony, with some mostly natural bride and groom photographs and some further photos of their close family & friends. It was perfectly intimate and the images felt really easy to capture. Lorraine and Ross looked so at ease in the atmosphere of the setting and very natural with each other. I totally loved being there to capture these images. The amazing setting and wonderful afternoon daylight certainly helped.
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.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You absolutely captured the love and happiness that was in abundance that day! X

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.
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.
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.
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.
I was lucky enough to meet Georgina and Chris at a wedding fair in Brighton West Sussex and was delighted to get the chance to work with them!
I knew photographing Georgina and Chris was going to be a joy, as it was so clear that they were incredibly excited about their day and genuinely smitten with each other, which I knew would make for some really natural, beautiful photographs.
The pre wedding shoot took place in the same location as the ceremony would be held, at St Mary's Church in Horsham, West Sussex. The church holds fond memories for me personally, which makes it a really special venue.
The 12th century church is set in a quiet, picturesque location at the far end of the causeway and is the oldest building in the town. Inside the church is spectacular and holds some modern twists amongst some of the ancient interior.
The photographic shoot was a chance to set the scene, to test the likely light, outside on the day and for Georgina and Chris to have some less formal photographs, which they could use as invites for their Sussex wedding.
I love the colours and obvious love between Chris & Georgina, which all came together in the shots. Her are a few from the day.
I absolutely loved this shoot because Jack and Leony were so nervous beforehand but totally lost themselves in the moment. They have a great story and a wonderful energy together and I hope the images really capture this. The session took place at Boxhill, Surrey on a lovely autumn afternoon.
