Upwaltham Barns Wedding: Ryan and Amy

Bride and Groom at Upwaltham Barns-2-2

Photographing a friend’s wedding is hard; More pressure, more distraction, mischievous husbands pulling facing from the congregation. But also a privilege. No one else gets to see the day like I do. So here’s Ryan and Amy’s wedding how I saw it: moments of excitement and nerves, smiles and tears, love and laughter (and more tears).

They were married at Upwaltham Barns in Chichester, a pretty venue out in the West Sussex countryside. Amy and the girls were getting ready in the little ‘Honeymoon Cottage’ at the Barns when I joined them and Ryan soon arrived with the groomsmen and waited in the bar. Amy and Ryan both bought each other thoughtful gifts, an old pocket watch for Ryan (tears #1) and a specially made perfume for Amy. Ryan also wrote a lovely letter to each of Amy’s daughters which I thought was such a sweet touch.

The ceremony was emotional, with readings from their sisters and Amy’s daughter Katie who read a brilliant poem she had written herself. (more tears) After the ceremony everyone enjoyed a pimms or two and the rain held off for some photos around the barns before we sat down for the wedding breakfast. The speeches were funny and yes there were more tears, and after being best man for both Scott and Wayne, Ryan obviously got his due. The evening was a chance for me to chill out a bit, but I still had the camera for the dirty dancing lift, and we set up the photobooth for a bit (photos to follow)

Ryan and Amy- many congratulations, wishing you a long and happy marriage  xxx

Michelle & James’ Vintage Country Wedding in Surrey

Surrey Wedding Photography- Vintage Country wedding-41

Michelle and James had a vintage-country styled wedding at the Georgian House hotel in Haslemere, Surrey. Full of details, personality and moments, this wedding was a photographer’s delight. Michelle and James are a lovely couple and their happiness really shone through on the day.

Michelle wore a pretty summer dress and band of flowers in her hair, while James wore a dapper checked suit. The venue was decorated with haybales, picnic rugs, bunting and pretty meadow flowers and corn. Michelle is a talented violinist and the tables were named after the Sound of Music, the table plan cleverly crafted using the musical score. Instead of a traditional sit down wedding meal, they treated their guests to Afternoon Tea, which was beautifully served on vintage crockery. The tables were laid out with dainty floral cups and saucers and mismatched plates. They ate cucumber sandwiches, scones and homemade jam, with lashings of ginger beer. The food was followed with some very interesting looking Choi Time chinese tea, with petals and flowers  that ‘bloomed’ in the teapot. In the evening there was a BBQ and Ceilidh which got everyone up dancing.

Here are some highlights from their wedding photos. The full gallery is now online for friends and family here.

Thanks to Tarah Coonan for assisting me on this wedding.

Sneak Peek: Michelle & James got married!

Just one from Michelle & James’ wedding at the Georgian House hotel in Haslemere. Such a photogenic wedding with the fantastic vintage teasets, old english flowers and crazy ceiledh dancing, so it was hard to choose one sneak preview but I love this cute moment.

Rachel & John’s English Country Wedding at Langrish House

Langrish House Wedding

Rachel and John came home from New Zealand for a summer wedding in the English countryside at Langrish House. They have been living and working in New Zealand for the past 2 years so their wedding was also a lovely reunion of old friends and family. It was a fabulous sunny day, defying the cynical ex-pats back in New Zealand who’d scoffed that it only ever rains in the UK in summer ;p . Rachel & John are a fun and easygoing couple, I’m sure my teachers were never that cool, and it was a pleasure the spend the day in their company. Anyway, picture’s speak louder than words, so I’ll stop rambling now and show you some highlights from the day. The full gallery is online for friends and family here.
