Their Favourites - Nicola and Dan at The Walled Gardens at Cowdray
09/05/2018

You ask someone... "Give my 3 of your favourite images" and I suspect they think "wow...just three...how can I do that?".  I think Nicola has the answer.  You don't.  You pick 8 and then reckon you could probably pick 50 more but that might be pushing it.  To be fair I would have been happy with that. This is a few favourites from Nicola and Dan's wedding at the Walled Gardens at Cowdray.  A stunning location with so many beautiful flowers...

Arleta and Mark - Short Coverage Wedding in West Sussex
01/08/2017

Sussex Wedding Photographer And now for something COMPLETELY different. Originally I had marked out the weekend before my own wedding as a time off. A full wedding was not something that I needed to be thinking about with family arriving and so many things to do. But when I got the call from Arleta who explained they only wanted a few hours it seemed like good karma. It was. For instance, I got a good 15 minutes of following Mark around Arundel...

Nicola and Dan - The Walled Gardens at Cowdray Park
01/07/2017

Sussex Wedding Photography After a summer that had so far been a scorcher the winds picked up and the rain moved in. I often tell my couples that in all the weddings I've shot (nearly 500) there has only be 4 days of solid rain. Well, after last week and this week I can up that 6. But rain doesn't need to be a nemesis. You have to look to what makes these days unique. Whilst the The Walled Gardens are beautiful (and were in wonderful bloom)...

Southdowns Manor Wedding Photographer - Carol and Rob
30/06/2017

A very long time ago I shot a wedding, one of my first, of a couple named Robin and Carol. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. Just starting out, loads of balloons, a scrap between guests. I had a great time. So when I was first on my way to meet Carol and Robin I had a firm view of what these two were going to look like. Surprisingly they weren't in their 60s and from that a whole new idea of what Carol and Robin means has...

Carol and Rob - Southdowns Manor in West Sussex
01/06/2017

Hampshire and Sussex Wedding PhotographerThis wedding goes across county lines. This would prove to be in no way as controversial as it always seemed to be in The Dukes of Hazzard. I'm showing my age. I started with Carol, the Bridesmaids and her Parents at home near Portsmouth. I largely relaxed affair with lots of laughs and even a code word .. 'aubergine'. It's not important. Meanwhile, in Buriton, my Darren for the day, Sophie, was busy...

Their Favourites - Amanda and Phil at Farbridge
09/12/2016

Continuing with the clients favourite theme here are the three images selected by Amanda and Phil from their wedding at Farbridge near Chichester.  It's important to remember as a wedding photographer that the pictures you might think are 'favourites' may be different to the Bride and Groom.  Whilst all of the images they selected are fantastic its even more interesting to hear their backstory.  The reason behind what makes it so special. Before...

Charlie and Eddie - Sheet Church and Southdowns Manor
01/12/2016

Wedding Photography in Sheet and Southdowns ManorCharlie and Eddie. You rarely meet two people who just make you smile before you've said a single world to them. They beam with happiness and pleasantly infect you with it too. I met them at the church a few weeks before. I was hooked. This meant that on the day I knew what to expect from them. But what of their guests and family. I've been at this long enough to enough that the "vibe" for a...

Farbridge Wedding Photography - Amanda and Phil
01/10/2016

Sussex Wedding Photography at FarbridgeJust north of Chichester and just before you get to the winding roads you come across Farbridge. From the main road you wouldn't know that nestled down behind the trees is a top class Sussex wedding venue. The very venue that Amanda and Phil, currently based in Hong Kong, decided would be the location of the recent nuptials. Today was the first day without Darren (sad face). I did, however, have a visiting...

Farbridge Wedding Photography - Gemma and Craig
01/10/2016

Farbridge Wedding Photography Are you a fan of Bake Off? I am. And this made the wedding of Gemma and Craig at Farbridge near Chichester even more amazing. A few years back Gemma started to copy the challenges from the show. First the technical, then the showstopper and finally the signature. It became a weekly obsession. The only problem is, Craig was there to help her eat the cake. He's 'not a fan' shall we say. So of course this led the Great...
