Wedding photographs at St Mary’s Church in Pulborough and reception at Dorset House, Bury. Coverage of Megan & James officially began a couple of hours before the ceremony, with Megan and the girls getting ready at her parents house in Watersfield. However we popped to the church to get a few location shots beforehand, in case we ran out of time later. Once at the house, there was time to get plenty of shots of the details, the stunning flowers from Amberlilys, the beautiful dress and the general goings on. Megan was almost ready, so after a couple of ‘make up’ shots she was straight into the dress. This was great, as I could get a few requested groups in the garden before heading back to the church. Just as I was leaving, the car arrived, a lovely white vintage Rolls Royce from E&B Knight. At the church, all the guests were arriving and we got a few shots with James, his best man and ushers as well as some candids too. The Vicar was great, and happy for me to shoot here and there, as long as he didn’t see or hear me lol. After the ceremony and a few photo’s at the church door, we headed over to Dorset House. Megan & James opted for coverage up to the wedding breakfast, which meant we needed to cover all of their photo’s before the meal. So we initially cracked on with their romantic portraits underneath the archway, by the old gate and down by the lake. Finally their ‘everyone’ shot and family groups were taken on the steps (naturally!). Once everyone was seated for the meal, we took a few around the tables before heading home. The day was generally dry, with only the lightest of showers here and there. However by the time we left, it was pretty wet, so timing was absolutely perfect! View more here..

Here are just a few examples from Sunday’s pre wedding shoot with Jack & Charley. We met up at Portchester Castle, and had a wander about taking shots here and there. I will be photographing their wedding in May…
Here is a shot taken in Littlehampton last week, I knew it was high tide as I was passing so popped down to West Beach to have a quick look. Not quite as dramatic as the images you will have seen in the news, I’m not brave enough to get in the thick of it! But it was pretty rough down there, I had to lay on the stones to hold the camera still enough for this photo as it was getting dark too. This was taken at ISO1600 250th sec f4, in case you are interested lol.
Well after a nice break I am keen to get stuck in to 2014′s weddings. My first one of the year is only a couple of days away now, all the gear is packed and ready for action! I will be photographing the lovely Stacey & James at the Holy Trinity Church, Cuckfield followed by reception at Ockenden Manor. Can’t help myself keep checking the weather, both locations are stunning, so really praying for some let up in the wind and rain. The church is beautifully kept, as is Ockenden Manor, so I will definitely be wanting to get some outdoor shots at some point. The following week is the wedding (blessing) of Caroline and Noel, they will have been married in New Zealand, but are having a blessing here in the UK for all those family and friends who were not able to be at the wedding. This will be at St Mary’s Church Easebourne, followed by reception at The Walled Garden at Cowdray, Midhurst. I photographed their friend’s wedding a few years ago in Brighton, and they will be there, so it will be lovely to see them again too. I will be keeping the blog up to date this year, it’s my New Years resolution! So come back soon for some previews and news on more forthcoming weddings in March.
