Harriet & Jamie's Wedding - Hendall Manor Barns

Harriet & Jamie had their beautiful Spring wedding at Hendall Manor Barns in East Sussex. Harriet is a wedding & event organiser so she knew exactly what she wanted and it was so much fun to photograph! So many stunning flowers everywhere and lots of beautiful details making it really personal, she really had thought of everything!

When she arrived at the church she looked absolutely sensational in her blush wedding dress, I loved it! After the ceremony we took a few photos in the grounds of the church as it was a special place for Harriet, then Harriet & Jamie made their way to Hendall Manor Barns with the bridal party in a fleet of Mini's, and the rest of the guests in a red double decker bus.

I was spoilt for choice with photo opportunities at Hendall, it really is a photographers dream! Harriet & Jamie were so relaxed and happy in front of the camera, they were a joy to work with and we were so blessed with the weather.

The tables and decorations looked amazing for their banqueting style wedding breakfast. It really suited the room and meant that Harriet & Jamie could look out and see all of their guests during their meal and speeches. I don't think anyone will forget Jamie's speech, he announced to the room that Harriet is pregnant and held up the image of their scan! The whole room erupted! I have never seen anything like it, it was incredible! It was amazing to be a part of such a special moment. 

Just when I thought the day couldn't get any better, we were blessed by the most amazing sunset! It was so romantic. The whole day was an absolute pleasure to photograph, everyone was so happy there were so many smily faces and beautiful details for me to capture. I loved it!

2018 Favourite Wedding Moments

Aaaaaghhhh!!! I can’t tell you how excited I am to share this!!! My favourite moments of 2018 yaaaaaay!! I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE doing this each year it really makes me smile LOTS! Going through all of my weddings from the last year is so rewarding, seeing how many amazing people I have worked with and how lucky I am to be a part of all these special memories :)

My first selection was over 1000 images!!!!!! So it’s been extremely hard (as always!) and taken me weeks to whittle it down to just over 100!

What a year it has been!!! I remember saying this time last year that I had a lot planned, so I’m feeling very proud that I can now look back having achieved everything I set out to! I rebranded…. a HUGE task but I did it!!! I couldn’t be happier with my new brand I am SO happy that I did it. New website, a fresh new look for my wedding fairs, designed my own new brochures, new flyers, created an app, new office, promo video, I could go on!!!

The last year has also seen a lot more of my super second shooter Dave!! It’s been so much fun working with him and a great excuse to buy more camera equipment haha! Bringing him on board has been a huge success and we are very excited to have lots of weddings booked together for the next couple of years.

I couldn’t possibly finish this post without mentioning that other little thing that happened this year…….  To be voted Kent’s best photographer in the Muddy Stiletto awards was AMAZING!!! Super chuffed about that! Thank you to everyone who voted for me! I also won Photographer of the Year Highly Commended at the Kent Wedding Awards, (YAY!) and was extremely proud to be a finalist at The Wedding Industry Awards! To be recognised for all my hard work really is an amazing feeling and makes me very happy! I strive to always do the best work possible, quality is key and I work hard to make sure I always give every couple the best that I can. 

Thank you SO SO much for everyone’s support it is always appreciated and never goes unnoticed! 

Here’s to a fantastic 2019!!! 

I wonder if I can catch up on my blogging now I’ve got all of my branding done??!!! (Does anyone ever catch up with their blogging??)
