Sam & Matt’s Buxted Park Wedding

A glorious summer’s day made the drive through the Sussex countryside a wonderful start to their Buxted Park wedding. Sam and Matt’s wedding, was a day full of love and friendship. Lots of fabulous emotions for me to capture. Like many of the couples that book me for their wedding photography, they were both quite shy when it came to posing for pictures. Which is perfect for me, as for the majority of the wedding day I won’t pose anyone I’m just an unobtrusive observer of the wedding.

Even during the portrait shots, I simply asked that we walked to a quiet spot in the gardens and only asked them to look at the camera once for a classic portrait. They both love skiing, which meant we had plenty to chat about on the day, as I’m a really keen skier myself. I’m never happier than when knee deep in powder on a pair of skis. The couple’s wedding cake featuring a skiing bride and groom was the kind of personal touch that make weddings special.

    1. Thx Craig. Moments is what wedding photography is all about for me, so I strive to capture as many as possible, naturally and candidly, never asking my couples to pose for them.

    1. Thx Lynne, I’ve always had a soft spot for Black and White images, having grown up in a darkroom from a young age. They are what first got me into photography 35 years ago.
