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 lucky 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 and 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!

Rebecca & Chris's wedding - The Bell Ticehurst

Rebecca & Chris’s wedding - OMG!!

I had been talking to Rebecca & Chris about this day for over a year, so to see it finally all come together was just incredible. I knew it was going to be awesome, but it really was even better than I imagined! I mean, how cool is a Chupa Chups bouquet??! Not to mention those shoes!

Dave was second shooting (yay!) so you can imagine how many photos we took between us! Here are just some of our favourites :-)

Massive congratulations Rebecca & Chris, thanks for having us, we LOVED it! xx

Cat & Rich's Wedding - Upwaltham Barns

On the 4th March this year I had the absolute privilege of photographing Cat & Rich’s wedding at Upwaltham Barns. Cat and I have known each other for about 12 years so to be asked to photograph her wedding was a real honour. Upwaltham Barns really suited their style and theme and when they told me that was their chosen venue I knew instantly that it was the right choice!

I met Cat there as she was getting ready in the bridal suite so we got some gorgeous shots of her, as well as her utterly stunning dress and her Jimmy Choo’s which were AMAZEBALLS! Cat is such a natural beauty and looked effortlessly dazzling.

The ceremony was just lovely, I loved that as we approached the ceremony room all the staff were lined up by the doors so that no one would get a sneak peek before she was ready to make her grand entrance!

It was quite a chilly day and as we were about to do their couple shots we did get a little bit of rain so we did some in and around the barn. In true classic British weather style, though, the rain didn’t last for long. Once they sat down for their wedding breakfast the sun came out and the clouds cleared, so I grabbed them in between courses so we could get a few photos outside. 

Cat & Rich had made so much effort with all their décor, the venue looked absolutely stunning! From lots of bunting, to little wooden signs. I loved their table numbers, all with things that were really meaningful to them. They had even adorned the chandelier in the centre of the wedding breakfast room with pretty yellow flowers and gypsophelia. And as the sun went down, there were lots of candles lit outside making it look truly magical.

It was an amazing day and an utter pleasure to photograph! Wishing Cat & Rich sooooo much happiness as they start their married life together.

And a big shout out to my other half, Dave, who was second shooter for me for the first time! He did sooo well and got some fantastic shots; I better watch my back! (Sneaky selfie of us working at the end!)
