Good Morning Folks,

West Sussex wedding photography at Slaugham Place is beautiful and it was a pleasure to be a part of Tracey and Mark's wedding day. The day started next door at their house, yup folks not far for me to travel although it was a real struggle having to walk the few yards to get there ;) I photographed the boys doing their 'thang' before seeing Tracey at the Felbridge Hotel to capture her bridal preparations. We really were local as it was a short hop, skip and a jump to East Court where the wedding service took place in the beautiful Georgian mansion. Mark and Tracey had thought of everything, during the chats after the service champagne and yummy chocolate strawberries were served and what a delicious accompaniment for the group shots; tres chic! It was lovely to have an intimate little gathering at East Court before heading off to Slaugham Place to meet up with their guests; the day was so lovely not just because I know Tracey and Mark but the planning was impeccable and you could really see both of them in this day.

So now for today's images; I love this shot it exudes so much, happiness, wind, excitement, wind, relief oh and wind! When Mark and Tracey arrived they made the most fantastic entrance and I love moments like this, but hey folks look at the Bentley :) Slaugham has so much to offer in the way of photographic opportunities, I love the leading lines of the bridge along with Mark's stance to give drama to this image. Now just take a lookey at this; a brand spanking new Bentley, Rolls Royce and Aston Martin with the magnificent backdrop of the ruins; those cars looked and sounded great and the lads weren't bad I suppose ;) I don't think I could take a bad picture of Tracey, contrary to what she believes she is very photogenic and it made me laugh because she would pose then all of a sudden do a little dance or just swirl in her dress. Last but not least and sorry Elliot (who is a photographer by the way) I know you will hate me for this, but I couldn't resist! Mark does love an ice cream from the ice cream van so what does every man want at his wedding; yup his very own ice cream van! I have popped this image in as I don't think any of us really grow up do we?

Thank you both for being so much fun and letting me be a part of your day; look, look can you see me waving :D

Whatever you are up to this weekend folks, have a great one.

Claire :)


Slaugham Place, Slaugham, West Sussex - Charlotte and Craig: West Sussex Wedding Photographers

 

 

Good Afternoon Folks,

I recently photographed the wedding of Charlotte and Craig at the beautiful Slaugham Place, West Sussex. The day started off at Charlotte's parents house, which has a wonderful atmosphere and we then moved on to St Mary's Church in Horsham, West Sussex to photograph the boys; the Verger was just lovely and it was good to be back there again. We then headed to the gorgeous Slaugham Place.

Slaugham Place has a permanent marquee and their dedicated marquee supplier and caterer Super Event are just lovely and the service was second to none; nothing was too much trouble for them. The marquee was decorated in a vintage theme with lots of little touches that made it look fabulous. The grounds of this venue are just stunning and I am pleased to say that I captured an image that I had been planning since their pre-wedding shoot; thank you weather and this is being kept for their viewing. It was an absolute delight to wander through the beautiful surroundings with them and I think Charlotte's Augusta Jones dress suited the venue perfectly.

I am posting three images today; the first is of the ruins and what more can I say but majestic. The second is on the bridge at the beautiful lake and you can see one other as the cover image on my facebook business page and last but not least confetti at the church. I love a good confetti shot and haven't posted one for a while.

It has been an extremely hectic July and beginning of August for me, so I have a little respite in order to catch up with all the little jobs that fell by the wayside over the next couple of weeks.

Enjoy the day folks and well done Team GB 22 Gold, 13 Silver and 13 Bronze; what an achievement and these athletes should really be commended for their training and commitment. On that note Craig is undertaking a gruelling competition called Ironman in Lanzarote next May. Just the thought of it makes me want to lie down in a darkened room with a wet flannel!!!!
