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 […]

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 […]

Advantages Of A Christmas Wedding Although spring and summer are the busiest wedding seasons, Christmas can also be the perfect time for a truly romantic and festive wedding. Yet many couples are put off by the idea of a Christmas wedding: they worry about finding a good venue in such a busy period, that friends and family may have other commitments, or that their special day will be overshadowed by Christmas festivities. The truth is that there are many advantages to a Christmas wedding that many couples haven’t considered. Here are just a few of them: The Perfect Theme Organising a wedding, should be fun, yet many brides find it stressful. From choosing the right colour scheme and co-ordinating decorations, flowers and bridesmaid dresses accordingly can be a real headache. Christmas gives you a perfect, ready-made theme. Festive colours such as red, green, gold, white and silver are ideal for a Christmas wedding. Decorations It won’t be difficult finding decorations for your venue. Think berries, snow-sprayed twigs, holly, pine cones and you’ve got the perfect ingredients for table centres. Christmas trees can be decorated to match your chosen colour scheme and it will be far easier to find festive flower […]

Please welcome the new Mr & Mrs Rawling!!!

Yesterday’s wedding was amazing! From start to finish… The venue, well just look at the photo of the place. VAST! Which can prove a challenge, where do I start?! Well it really wasn’t too much of a problem, although finding the bride was lol. Eventually we caught up. Jade-Ashlee was a slightly excited but nervous bride. And so she should be, there were 2 ceremonies! One was the official civil ceremony and the next was a full blown chapel blessing with their family vicar. All on the same grounds of course. The groom was calm and collected (well done Nick!). Looking smooth in the black tie suit. He had 3 best men and even more ushers. The day went quickly with group shots, romantics and plenty of people relaxing and natural photography. The food was amazing and so was the choreographed first dance. Not all weddings happen where celebrities choose to get married, like this one where Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan tied the knot. But when weddings do, it really helps make amazing memories. Have a look at some of the photos below. Congratulations to the new Mr & Mrs Rawling!!

Congratulations Mr & Mrs Hollands!

This was the long anticipated wedding of 2014! Barney’s known Paul since school (and would class him as one of his closest long standing friends), he’s quite a character and anyone will tell you the same. He has many talents, one of which is song writing. Corinne is a singer, they met one day in a recording studio and hit it off, the rest as they say ‘is history’. (He’s hit the jackpot with Corinne, she’s lovely). Paul’s day started a little bumpy, the cat got out of the house! So at 10am he could be seen running around calling “Monster” taping the pets food bowl. So funny, the best-men and ushers were all in hysterics. Corinne looked amazing, (as we all knew she would), she’s done a fair bit of modelling too so they were well rehearsed with all the poses)! “Bando” as Paul is better known, also loves having his picture taken, and I’ve used him myself in a few commercials for car adverts.  I think you’ll agree they both look amazing in the image below. We hope you and your gorgeous children had a lovely day and wish you all the very best for the future. x […]
