Post Lockdown Wedding at East Court

This is my second post lockdown wedding. East Court in East Grinstead was the venue. Today’s wedding was for an old school friend Richard Kinver. I’ve socialised, worked alongside and been a guest at his restaurant. He’s is a chef. A bloody good one too. He currently runs the kitchen at The Star in Lingfield. The day started damp and dark, but I wasn’t worried. I normally bring the sun with me and this was no different! Photography is finally begining to take off again. Since the Covid lockdown in the UK, events such as weddings have been greatly effected. Guest numbers are still very low. My first wedding last week had just 14 guests. This wedding conformed to the latest government guideline numbers of below 30. Obviously all the usual precautions were in place. At East Court in East Grinstead, they check every guests temperature prior to entering. Hand sanitiser was readily avaliable and used in abundance. However before we got to the ceremony, there were bridal preperations to be covered. On entering the home, everyone was so happy. Kasia was having her make up applied and the dress was hanging. Flowers were sitting in water ready for the […]

Speaking BIG, the entrance door has to be the largest, heavest door I’ve ever opened. There are many rooms, the entrance hall has a hugh fireplace, but the room in particular that we were working in was ‘The Music Room’, which houses a very old Music Organ, currently not in use but it certainly adds to the very grand feel you […]

Photographing Weddings at Ghyll Manor

Photographing Weddings at Ghyll Manor with Claire and Dean to show their big day wedding highlights. Slideshow created as a gift to the couple after their big day as a thank you for choosing Barney Warner Photography to be the offical wedding photographers. The wedding was entirely at Ghyll Manor in Rusper, West Sussex.   Barney’s known Dean since a child, his brother was good mates with Dean back at school, so he was really happy to see the family. Claire was also at school with Barney, so straight away everyone was put at ease. Laughter and fun was in such abundance throughout the day and the atmosphere was so easy going. So Photographing Weddings at Ghyll Manor, especially with Claire and Dean was a real pleasure. Claire got ready in the Ghyll Cottage, ajoined to the Manor. There’s lot’s of space and comfortable furnishings. It’s really old so the ceilings are quite low with beautiful wooden beams running through them. Dean was not aware, that Claire had a little suprise for him in store. He’s a mechanic, and a fond lover of cars. So what arrived to take him through the winding countryside to the wedidng venue, was a […]
