West Sussex wedding photography at Ghyll Manor

I love staying local, especially in West Sussex, it’s a beautiful part of the south, wedding photography at Ghyll Manor is quite unique. It’s a really beautifully set location with an old manor house and extensive grounds leading down to a gorgeous lake with lilly pads. Recent years of ever increasing popularity lead to the construction of the newer part of this venue which not only gives a great party but also accomodates guests over night. Yesterday was the amazing wedding of Claire and Dean. I’ve known them both for many years and grew up in the same area, went to the same schools and occasionally ‘knocked about’ in similar cirlces of friends, which meant I knew a fair number of the guests which instantly helps when capturing the natural essence of the day. I tend to blend in as best I can with the guests to be as unobtrusive as possible, producing some unstaged moments that the couple can treasure. It was a warm close weather type of day, which can be uncomfortable sometimes in suits, I felt for the guys in the 3 peices but it didn’t distract from the day. Everyone was easy going and up for […]

Horsham Wedding photography & Hartsfield Manor

It was an overcast morning but dry… this was Horsham Wedding photography after all, we’re not in the Med, but specifically St John’s Church in Horsham. Lovely church built in 1928 apparently. Hadn’t ever been in there before. Anyway, the groom was soo nervous! It’s expected at such a massive occasion. (I was too on my wedding day). The bride arrived with her dad and they got stuck in. The vowels went without a hitch and before they knew it the rings were on and off they skipped back down the isle. With a few group shots outside with the car waiting, (which had a bubble machine built into the rear of the car) AMAZING!! Next stop was Hartsfield Manor in Betchworth. Been there plenty of times photographing weddings, so I knew the drill. It was however starting to rain. Wedding photographers worst nightmare!! But I had with me my new trusty 5Dm4 which is weather proof, the bride and groom were amazingly relaxed about the rain and for that we managed to grab some beautiful moments between them. Not even the rain could stop these two!! Take a look!   Although a Crawley based photographer, I don’t mind being refered […]

5 Reasons Why Your Business Needs A Professional Photographer

The most crucial and fundamental aspect of any business, no matter how small, is marketing. Ultimately, you have a product or service that you want to sell. Good marketing involves making your business visible: getting out there and increasing your brand awareness, while using methods to make you stand out above the competition. That’s why using the right images to promote your brand and sell your products is essential. Professional photographs grab attention, display your company and your brand in the best possible way and boost your credibility. You may have the best business idea ever and offer amazing products and services. But if they aren’t marketed effectively, your business will suffer and ultimately, fail. So before you start snapping away with your smartphone, consider these 5 good reasons why your business needs a professional photographer. 1. Your Website Every business should have a website. It’s the first place prospective customers will go to. You will be judged by your content so the first impressions need to be positive. Written content is important, but the eyes are immediately drawn to images. That’s why they need to be professional and relevant. 2. Quality An amateur photo screams “unprofessional”. Images should help, […]

Congratulations Mr & Mrs Bartlett

Rowfant House in Sussex is being sold on, but before they could these two tied the knot there today. Vickie & Mike were amazing, the sun was out (in between showers), and the party was in full swing. Everyone was having a great time. The day started at Vickie’s where the processco was flowing. The girls loved getting dolled up! The groom spotted the bridal car at the venue and bolted inside, he went very quiet lol must have been the nerves? Everyone was ushered into the ceremony room and they got down to business. The ceremony was beautiful and full of laughter with everyone giggling along with the nervous bride and groom. We managed to steal a few shots outside before another shower and followed by group shots again in the sun. Rowfant House Wedding photographers.   A great bunch and amazing family. Congratulations guys x Here’s a sneeky preview for you of the happy couple.  

One from today’s engagement shoot :)

Nigel & Stacy came to me for their engagement shoot today. Sun was out for a change. We had to cancel numerous times, bloody UK weather is so unpredictable. So the wedding is June so we are all hoping for similar weather, but a bit warmer ha ha. Not normally one for filters, but this works quite well. All the best to this awesome couple x
