Alexander House Hotel, East Grinstead

Before the fun begins at Jeremy’s Borde Hill Gardens, Alexander House Hotel is the ideal place to get ready for a wedding.  The rooms are spacious with lots of light for the hair and make-up artists. This was a scorcher of a day and it was already hot before we even arrived at Alexander House!!

The bridal party preparations were well underway and there were some very interesting cocktails being sipped whilst everyone was getting ready.

We then headed off to the church to find the boys and take some photographs of them before the arrival of the bride. It was great to see all the guests arriving some were enjoying a couple of summer drinks in The Cat Inn, a very convenient pub!!

Once our lovely bride arrived with her Dad, the most important part of the day could begin.  The coolness of the church was a welcome relief to have the coolness of the church. The ceremony was lovely with fun elements that reflected my bride and groom’s personalities, they did make me giggle behind the camera!!

I do love St Margaret’s Church, not only for its beautiful country location but for the views. We planned some portraiture after the service as the view was a very special one for my bride and groom. It also gave them some much needed time together before joining their guests at Jeremy’s Borde Hill Gardens.

We arrived to the most amazing sound; a steel band, with the weather this was just so perfect. Cocktails were being served and the whole wedding had such a tropical feel. My bride and groom had hoped for a day like this as they wanted a tropical themed wedding and they could not have asked for a more perfect weather in the perfect setting of Jeremy’s Borde Hill Gardens. There was lots of time to relax and sip a cocktail or two before settling down to a magnificent barbeque. The marquee was open on all sides, everything was just magical.

 

The evening fun at Jeremy’s Borde Hill Gardens!

We had loads of fun in the evening; I think a cocktail or two may have helped things along a bit!! It is a great time to be a bit silly and capture some fun photography; and my oh my was this fun!!!

There was another full barbeque for the evening guests with some very special entertainment and nope I cannot say more!!!

Once the sun had gone down, it was time for us to go and we settled in to the glorious coolness of the air conditioned car to make our way home and chat about another glorious wedding at Jeremy’s Borde Hill Gardens.
