Alyson and Julian at St Swithun's and The Ravenswood, East Grinstead, West Sussex: Sussex Wedding Photography

Well the weather has certainly be kind to us for quite a while now; Alyson and Julian's wedding day proved to be absolutely balmy. They were married at St Swithun's Church in East Grinstead and I think we are very lucky to have such a wonderful church right in the centre of East Grinstead; you can see its golden tipped spire for miles around. It was then off to The Ravenswood and as you know I think this is a beautiful venue with wonderful grounds. From the two shots I have chosen of Alyson and Julian's wedding it is the first that has the significance; next to the the Best Man you should be able to see two candles lit side by side, these were in remembrance of their Grandparents. I was really struck by the placement of the candles because although small they really stood out for me. I felt that it was like having them at the service as two guests in pride of place right at the front; this attention to detail really touched me. The second shot was taken at dusk and you can just about see the boat house although the size and placement of my watermark may have obscured this!

I hope you enjoy the tasters and I very much look forward to seeing Alyson and Julian for their viewing soon. Hope you are having a cocktail or two on your fabulous Honeymoon you two.


Vic and Mark at The Ravenswood, Sharpthorne

It feels so good to be able to talk about Vic and Mark's wedding. The actual day was a secret and they had a masked ball in the evening to celebrate Vic's birthday and their very special wedding. It was great fun to watch and photograph the evening guests arriving and when they heard "we're married" it just did not sink in first time; then to see the looks of surprise and joy on their faces was wonderful and made for some great photography.

The Ravenswood is a stunning venue and I am lucky enough to be back there this weekend! Here are a couple of shots from the day. I hope you are having a wonderful honeymoon Vic and Mark and looking forward to seeing you next week.

Have a great weekend and I think it is going to be quite nice again.
