Laura and Ben's Autumnal Southend Barns Wedding

I was absolutely thrilled to be asked to photograph Laura and Ben's special day and had really looked forward to it after having had such a great time at their engagement shoot a year earlier. This adorable couple demonstrated their creativity and love of autumn through the use of smoke bombs at both their engagement session and throughout their wedding day at the beautiful Southend Barns in West Sussex. Although there were a few showers as the day progressed, we worked with it and it added a new spin to their images. Using the bombs was certainly fun and truly memorable; we all laughed as Ben's two best men ran around wafting smoke and trying to discern the wind direction! There was a nod to the changing leaves picked up in the warm yellows of the smoke as our couple shared a cosy, poignant moment underneath their sunlight splashed umbrella.

Loving Creativity

Becky & Matt's Goodwood Hotel Spring Wedding

Back in the day, wedding photography was all about perfecting the still pose, albeit awkwardly standing in line with your new in-laws! It was about knowing there was only one chance at each click of the camera to smile your best smile, whilst hoping your hair was in place. There was a ‘no-going-back’ mentality that accompanied each capture and thus, waiting for the outcome of the resulting album prints was an anxious affair!

Thank goodness times have changed, enabling wedding photography to be so much more than the collection of numb expressions distilled in starchy, formulaic portraits. Of course these days we have the luxury of second chances and limitless opportunities to capture each and every single moment. What I loved about Becky and Matt’s wedding photography was how they fully embraced the modern approach, being willing to experiment with the unconventional and classic compositions. Their openness to creativity was inspiring and it also meant that we all had the best fun on their very special wedding day!

Danielle & Rob's Upwaltham Barns Spring Wedding

The perfect March day saved itself for Danielle and Rob who married at the breathtaking Sussex location of Upwaltham Barns. Fitting to the serene and tranquil setting was this easy-going, very relaxed pair who seemed to take the momentous day of marriage in their stride. Seeing to small essential tasks without stress and enjoying each moment as it fell upon them, the couple appeared to revel in its magic and mindfully absorb the details in real-time. It is rare to notice and acknowledge the little treasures of people’s words and actions with so much to think about for the day ahead, but charmingly, I witnessed this to be true of Danielle and Rob.
