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.
A fantastic wedding day in the Sussex & Surrey countryside!Read More
Sarah & Seb’s wedding day was set over three separate fantastic locations, from getting at Ryde House in Petworth, to the ceremony at St Peters church; the sweetest, most tiny stone/flint church, listed as far back as 1057 and set in the spectacular grounds of Seaford College in East Lavington.
The reception at Grittenham Barn, Tillington is set in the amazing Sussex countryside between Petworth and Midhurst. Grittenham Barn is a beautiful rustic property, set in stunning gardens, with a lake and orchard, making a lovely backdrop for the day. - not forgetting the donkeys! The sun didn’t grace us too many times but we did manage to catch it’s shine on occasion, especially late on in the day.
I’d been excited to be part of Sarah & Seb’s day and so glad I was.

We absolutely love the photos, thank you so much. The presentation box was also a lovely surprise! We’ve already started to narrow down our favourites for printing and we’ve selected one image to go on a postcard for our thank you’s
I'm a little late feeding back on the last of my local weddings from last year, so thought I should kick off this year's wedding blog, with some of the moments from Jane and Andy's wonderful day at the Windsor Hotel. The venue is literally a few streets down from my home, so really no excuse to be late - not that I ever have been :-)
Jane got ready at her Mums home, with her bridesmaids before her proud father escorted Jane to the Windor Hotel, in the luxury of the Rolls Royce. Jane was full of smiles all day and much to Jane & Andy’s delight, the sun shone too, so the ceremony could be held out in the sunshine of the garden.
The blue skies also meant we could head to beach for some couple shots.
The wedding day was really relaxed, with all the guests having a real sense of togetherness, which made it pretty easy for me to capture people naturally throughout the day.
Here are a few images from the day ….
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

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."
