Pre wedding photographers at Wotton House

A couple of weeks ago we found ourselves at a Surrey wedding venue that we love working at, the splendid Wotton House in Dorking, this time for a pre wedding shoot with a great couple Ian and Claire.

Another wonderful afternoon weather wise, we were able to walk around the grounds looking at spots for our couple so that on wedding day itself they would know where they would like to go for some more personal and romantic wedding pictures.

Ian and Claire's lovely children were ever present though taken care of by Ian's sister but we did get to fit in a little family portrait shoot as well.

As with all our pre wed shoots, which are included in all our Half Day plus wedding packages, these are a great way to see how our couples react to the cameras and in turn for them to see how we work. As you can see from the pictures Ian and Claire looked relaxed on the day and now we just look forward to covering their wedding day at Wotton House.

Horsley Pre wedding photographers

A weekend or so ago I was up in East Horsley for a pre wedding photo shoot with Tim and Lindsay and a last minute companion, their dog Stella.

It was a gorgeous afternoon and we walked together through a number of green luscious fields ending up at their favourite spot -  a bench overlooking some wonderful views of the flower meadows of the North Downs including a beautiful red poppy field.

Stella joined in the fun as she donned a pair of her favourite sunglasses.

It was great fun being with Tim and Lindsay, they are a lovely couple and I very much look forward to photographing their wedding at Horsley Towers in a few weeks time.

Hopefully Stella will make a special guest appearance for some fun wedding photos.

Gate Street Barn wedding photographer

A few weeks ago we were at the charming and tranquil Gate Street Barn hidden away in the sleepy village of Bramley near Guildford for the marriage of Ian and Kayleigh.

We first this lovely couple at Ian's sister's wedding which we photographed at Nonsuch Mansion and just before the wedding we did a pre wed shoot with them on a very hot sunny day at Gate Street Barn.

For the wedding itself, there were a couple of very heavy downfalls but it didn't ruin the proceedings and guests were out in the sunshine in between the showers.

In fact the day went fantastically and it was great for us to meet so many familiar faces and as for the newly-weds, well it will be a day that Ian and Kayleigh will remember forever.

Lovely people, fabulous venue, wonderful day.

Surrey wedding venue vintage style wedding bouquets

Yesterday I popped in to see Emma our highly experienced and friendly local wedding and event florist and owner of Emma Floral Designs.

She had just finished making two beautiful Bride and Bridesmaid's wedding bouquets and wanted some quick photographs of them before she took them to Oaks Farm Weddings down the road.

As I am sure you would agree, Emma's vintage style wedding bouquets are breathtaking and perfect for that pretty rustic Surrey wedding venue.

Clandon Park wedding photographers at Guildford charity walk

Saturday was a beautifully blue sky sunny day and we were back to one of those grand historical Surrey wedding venues that you always remember, Clandon Park, a magnificent Palladian mansion for the marriage of Ross and Melinda.

The wedding day went beautifully and the pictures will be ready to view in a couple of weeks time.

Charity walk stop off in Guildford

We then went onto the Britannia Pub four miles away in Guildford to catch up with my sister Nichola (part of the Sibford Ladies team) who were taking part in a 62 mile London to Brighton charity walk for the British Heart Foundation.

Here are a few pictures of the Ladies relaxing and stretching on the banks of a packed River Wey before resuming their walk, scheduled to finish at Brighton Racecourse around 11am Sunday morning.

Well done to the ladies for completing the 26 plus hours walk and for raising over £1600.
