Good Evening Folks,

Yup that is blue skies you can see at Smallfield Place and what a wonderful day it was for a pre-wedding photography shoot with Kate and Richard.

Smallfield Place is a Jacobean mansion set in the most idyllic setting in Smallfield a village not far from East Grinstead in West Sussex. This is a privately owned home that is made available for a small number of exclusive weddings every year and this is such a beautiful place to celebrate a marriage. Holly is a brilliant events co-ordinator and nothing is too much trouble; the moment I walked in I could tell how homely and welcoming it was. Kate and Richard made such wonderful choice and it was great to be able to make some plans ahead of their big day. Rowlf came along too and he is such a good looking boy it was a must that he had his photographic debut! I think you can see from today’s images this young man is a natural in front of the camera.

I have popped on a selection of images from the shoot, the first was a stroll with Rowlf towards the house; as you probably know I do love a good door and there were doors abound here, so it seemed fitting to get an image of Richard looking particularly handsome 🙂 Inside the house there were so many nooks and crannies with lovely pools of light that are perfect to get natural light portraits and I love this one of Kate with her magnificent hair. Last but not least Rowlf doing some posing even if mummy and daddy are having a sneaky kiss…naughty mummy and daddy 😉

I don’t know about you but I am so pleased to see some sun at last; and it was most welcome for Saturday’s wedding and Sunday’s pre-wedding shoot! Have a great evening folks and check back soon.

Claire 🙂
