Nicola and Chris Yew Lodge East Grinstead West Sussex: West Sussex Location Photographer






Good Morning,

Happy and a slightly less windy Tuesday everyone.

I recently photographed the wedding of Nicola and Chris and we were so lucky with the weather just the odd shower here and there. The day started off at the Selsdon Park Hotel a most magnificent building and Nicola organises many events for them so she had the run of one of their wonderful suites. The next step was the most gorgeous St Mary's Church in Farleigh tucked away down a beautiful lane and surrounded by fields and inside it twinkled delightfully with lots of candles. Next stop was the wonderful Yew Lodge in East Grinstead and this venue never fails to delight with its many photographic opportunities; I am sure was a feast for Chris' eyes as he is a landscape gardener (and a very good one too).

It was a lovely day and I really enjoyed photographing you all, Nicola wanted lots of Bride and Groom portraiture and it was such a joy, and I even think Chris enjoyed it a bit too!

Looking forward to seeing you soon you two.

Nicky and Matthew, Yew Lodge, East Grinstead, West Sussex: Sussex Wedding Photography

Happy Friday Everyone!

We had a wonderful day at Nicky and Matthew's wedding, the weather was good and as usual Yew Lodge did not fail disappoint with is great interior and exterior. The day started at Nicky and Matthew's house where the bridal preparations were in full swing, there was much excitement as Matthew had managed to hire a Rolls Royce Phantom. This was not any old Rolls Royce, oh no it is the one the stars use and its number plate is BAF7A; how brilliant is that. We were told is is used regularly by Andrew Lloyd-Webber, Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones to name but a few!

Anyway back to the most important people Nicky and Matthew, they were married at Yew Lodge in the beautiful Oak Room and their reception was held in the new reception room, which boasts a lovely black granite floor. So the first dance was quite something with the floor and the lighting the owners have installed. Here are a couple of pictures of the day; I just loved the passion in Nicky and Matthew's first kiss, the 500 year old yew tree and just one little tantaliser of the inside!

Have a lovely weekend whatever you are all up to,

Claire


August - Natalie and Jamie Yew Lodge East Grinstead

It was a real pleasure to photograph the wedding of Natalie and Jamie; the service and reception were both held at glorious Yew Lodge. The building is really beautiful inside and out, and if that was not enough the grounds are magnificent. I was a little worried that we would not get outside and it was a bit hit and miss but in the end the weather was kind and we managed some photography in the woods. Natalie was really pleased as she was able to have some pictures under the Yew Tree, which is about 500 years old...wow.

Here a few images and a taster DVD Slideshow to whet your appetite. Natalie and Jamie are honeymooning in St Lucia, so really enjoy yourselves and make sure you have a cocktail with a cherry in it for me!!
