02 Jul SUSSEX WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER, HEATHFIELD
``Thank you SO much – what amazing pictures!! We love them all, just totally captured the day and atmosphere.`` – Laura & Alex
Sussex wedding photography
When Laura and Alex got in touch to say how my un-cheesy, un-posed documentary wedding photography would be perfect for her rustic Sussex wedding, I knew it was going to be a fun day. Lots of wedding guests letting their hair down in a field on a summer evening – what could be better!
There’s something extra special about a home wedding. It meant a lot to Laura to be able to get ready in her childhood bedroom and walk arm-in-arm with her dad through the back garden to the field behind, where all her family and friends were waiting.
Documentary wedding photography
Swing right driving east out of the small town of Heathfield in East Sussex and after a few miles you’ll find the sleepy village of Rushlake Green with its handsome cottages ringing the hogsback green.
Laura’s family home is one of those cottages and when I arrived to photograph everyone getting ready it was bustling with activity. I love it when there’s lots going on, and Laura’s parents were so welcoming and happy to have me capture all the excitement.
For me weddings are, first and foremost, about people. And the main reason why I love photographing weddings is because my documentary style of photography is perfect for telling stories and capturing moments that say something about people and what happens when we all get together for a party.
And what a party it was that evening! I can’t remember photographing a couple that were more up for having a party than Laura and Alex.
