I am really excited to be showing you Lisa & Simon's absolutely gorgeous Spring wedding on my blog. I felt a connection with the couple from the moment I first met them and after accompanying them to Pelham House Hotel in Lewes following our engagement shoot, knew that they wanted to come away with some very special images.
When I looked down from the balcony on our recce, I pictured Lisa in an amazing dress, twirling on the tiles below. Lisa pointed out Pelham House's amazing painted ceiling, and we discussed allocating time during the wedding to make absolutely sure we made the most of the gorgeous backdrops at our disposal. On the day, not only was Lisa's dress absolutely perfect for what we'd discussed, but the couple were really keen to work closely with me to turn our ideas into reality. Even climbing into the fabulous roll-top bath for some fun and unique images - no mean feat in that dress! We formed a strong partnership and the start of a friendship that I think comes through in the photographs.
I joined Lisa and their bridesmaids for the bridal preparations at Pelham House, then headed over to Holy Trinity Church at Hurstpierpoint, before returning to Pelham House for the celebrations. What a fabulous way to kick off my first full UK wedding season since returning from my five years living and photographing in Florida. Very much looking forward to seeing which images Lisa and Simon will choose to showcase in their album, but have a feeling I may have to invest in my own sample copy too!
