The awesome wedding of Stacey and James took place at the Holy Trinity Church in Cuckfield. Coverage began with Stacey getting ready in one of the rooms at Ockenden Manor Hotel Spa. Stacey was ready in time to get a couple of quick photo’s of her in the dress before I headed to the church, which was great. I even took her to a nearby ‘interesting’ wall that I spotted on the way in. I then walked ahead to the church as it is just up the road from Ockenden Manor. The ceremony was lovely and there was enough light to shoot from a couple of different angles. Afterwards a bit of candid shooting and a couple of family shots before Stacey and James went off for a little ride in the wedding car. Myself and all the guests then headed back to Ockenden Manor to wait for them. I then divided my time between candid, couple portraits and requested family groups. After the wedding breakfast followed the speeches and cutting the cake. The evening was a little more relaxed than the usual music and dancing, so I finished off with a few lovely night shots.

Days like this, when the wind and rain is lashing at the windows, it’s nice to look back at a gorgeous Spring / Summer wedding. As with so many of 2013 weddings, this one didn’t make it here on the blog, as I was so busy! Looking back I can almost smell the freshly cut grass and the hog roast now, lovely…
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.
If my ‘Option One’ album inclusive package is a little out of reach right now, but you really did want one of those beautiful Storybook albums from my British or Italian suppliers, then this could be the answer to your prayers. Individually designed by me, with your selection of 60 images, this new album is available to add to your existing package at a very affordable price.
The new demo is in the house, so I popped it on the kitchen table and took a couple of snaps for you to get a feel for it. The album is A4 in size and has 24 pages, or 12 double page spreads. The photographic pages are lustre finish, and the cover is faux leather. You can have your names embossed on the front cover if you wish, at no extra cost.
