Rio & Phil's Disney Up Themed Wedding - Swarling Manor

Set in the beautiful Kent Countryside, Swarling Manor was the most beautiful setting for a wedding. Topped off with one of Rio and Phil’s favourite movie… Disney Pixar’s Up!! I have to say, it’s also mine and my wife favourite movie too, so when I see this I was blown away!

From the moment I had met Rio and Phil I could tell the day was going to be one to remember, something magical was in the air and you just knew how much the day meant to everyone involved. They we’re like the perfect Disney couple and I just know they’re going to have a life filled with happiness!

Check it out their amazing day below…

Hannah and Joe - The Yoghurt Rooms

A wedding is not only a celebration of marriage, it's a celebration of you and your partner. It's a day of personal expression, family traditions and your love of one and other. 

I just love weddings where you can feel every little detail has some kind of meaning behind it. Whether it's the couples love of a particular hobby, favourite flowers or a nod to someone who is not with us any more, all these details make the wedding unique to you.

Recently, I attended Hannah and Joe's big day. They were one of the most laid back, friendly couples you could meet. You could just instantly tell how important the day was to them. They had chosen the Yoghurt Rooms in East Grinstead as the venue. From the bride getting ready to the evening party, everything was held here. Just off the beaten track this venue was perfect for Hannah and Joe. It had an abundance of character, everywhere you looked was something unique and quirky. 

On top of this beautiful, charismatic venue was all the little details added by the Bride and Groom. Everything had it's place and meaning. It was not only a celebration of them as a couple but their family and friends. Little nods here and there like the artichoke with a bow on, a little nod to a close friend. The wall of photos celebrating fun moments from their childhood through to all their travels together. My personal favourite was the tandem bicycle that Joe and his father used to ride when he was a child... he even showed me an old photo which oozed with nostalgia and the love they had for this detail that was so important for them.

From all these details, you could sense how important their family and friends were to them. Everyone celebrated all day, no evening guests separated from the days festivities, everyone was welcomed for the full experience. What a fantastic day it was too! It was an overwhelming sense of joy from start to finish, there was laughter and tears of happiness throughout. A true celebration of an amazing couple heading off to start their new married life together.

Here are a few of my personal favourite from the day...

 

The Luxury Album... Making memories last forever!

There is something special about printed images, especially when it's your wedding album. The feel of it gives you a warm sensation of happiness and ignites all those little memories from the big day. They say a picture says a thousand words, I kind of disagree. Sometimes there are just no words to describe that moment when you see your partner for the first time on your wedding day. Or the look on your dads face when he realises what the best man has just said about his new son-in-law. Some moments aren't meant for words, they're meant to be seen and felt. That tingling sensation when you see them is way better than any words.

The digital age is upon us, every image you take is stored away on your phone, pc or tablet. For me, obviously I know i'm a photographer, but it's amazing to have some of the milestones in mine and my families lives printed up. A physical print that hopefully someday my child will be showing his family, reliving that particular story. 

Our Luxury Albums are surely something special, beautifully design and handmade by one of the top printing companies in the UK. The weight, the feel, the print quality... it all screams luxury! 

Printed on a photographic card that gives the album its robust feel, the album is designed to to tell your story with images chosen by you. It comes complete with a leatherette cover of you colour choice. I personally love the grey/metallic shown below!

Memories are priceless, invaluable moments in your life that you always want to remember, but memories do fade. So, don't see this as an added cost to your day, see it as an investment for your memories. Prices for the Luxury Albums are £200 for a 12"x8" and £250 for a huge 16"x12", both come with 20 pages as standard. 

Let us tell your story and encapsulate it in our amazing Luxury Album, ready for you to share with your loved ones.

Jordan & Brendans West Sussex Wedding - Long Furlong Barn

There are a few things that you always want at a wedding. An excited couple, lots of naughty food and the sun to be out. Jordan and Brendan's day had it all!

Starting off the celebrations, Jordan and Brendan hired a beautiful beach house for there bridal party and family to stay at. It was the ideal setting to get everyone in the mood for a day like no other.

When I arrived, Jordan was finalising all the small details of the day and was very chilled. All her bridesmaids looked so excited to see Jordan in her dress and when the time come to reveal her transformation it did get a little emotional. Jordan looked stunning!

Once I arrived at Long Furlong Barn, I went to see Brendan to have a little chat about what the day holds, also to see how he was holding up. You know how us men get at a wedding, we're usually the most emotionally ones. What I was greeted with was someone who genuinely looked like the happiest man alive and couldn't wait to see Jordan.

As usual the ceremony was filled with laughter and tears of happiness. You could just feel that Jordan and Brendan were the perfect match and how much it meant to them to celebrate with all their family and friends.

After the ceremony, it was time to let loose a little. The music filled the barn along with laughter and cheers. The drinks were flowing and everyone was having a blast. This was a celebration not to be missed!
