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.

Samantha & Ben's Upwaltham Barns Spring Wedding

In the mild month of March this year, Samantha and Ben Raines chose the beautiful rustic venue of Upwaltham Barns for their rural country styled wedding. Nestled in the heart of the South Downs National Park, the idyllic setting was full of picturesque charm and could not have been more suitably designed to reflect great respect and appreciation of the West Sussex lush countryside. The couple’s careful choice of garments, accessories and decor ensured that their keen interest in the outdoors came through subtly and tastefully. A fusion of fur, feathers and wild flowers acted as poignant markers to the countrified scene, embellished by the many special details on display that had been lovingly crafted by the bride and groom themselves.
