Relaxed and fun wedding day in Dorking at the Burford Bridge Hotel



We'd last seen Lizzie and Rob in April, just three weeks earlier for their pre wed shoot on Box Hill and where we also learnt that Lizzie was seven months pregnant.

Now on the big day itself, Lizzie looked very relaxed and mellow in her parents' lovely garden in East Horsley along with family, pet ferrets and dogs, whilst Rob who was at the Burford Bridge Hotel was looking a tad nervous, though his close friends were helping to ease his nerves.

After a lovely wedding ceremony in the great Tithe Barn, full of funny face pulling, the rest of the celebrations eased their way through the day with everyone out on the grass drinking and eating canapés and enjoying the fine weather.

There was some fun time to be had posing by the cool classic car brought along for the occasion and though it wasn't convenient to go up to Box Hill for some newlywed pictures, they had at least got there for the pre wed session, a walk around the pleasant grounds was just as romantic and enjoyable.

A wonderfully happy and relaxed day, full of friendly people and lots of laughter.

We wish Rob and Lizzie all the very happiness for the future and of course for the imminent birth of their baby... not long now...get your sleep in while you can.

 

 

 

 

Fine family wedding at Wotton House, Dorking

Arriving at the magnificent 17th century country home Wotton House in Dorking a welcoming Surrey wedding venue with its distinctive terracotta on brickwork decorations


This wedding was a late booking and as we were unable to meet our couple beforehand, we found we were thinking on this fine May Saturday morning, I wonder what our Bride and Groom are like?

As it turned out, Julia and Jeff were childhood sweethearts and have been together for over 17 years and with grown up children, who would of thought it looking at them?

The day was a beautiful one with Richard starting off at Julia's house whilst Tina was with the boys in the bar and on the patio at Wotton House.

Then it was on to the ceremony in the beautiful Old library, a particular favourite of ours followed by canapés and champagne out in the tranquil and relaxing grounds...and from a sudden and very unexpected rain shower which caught us all unawares during the group wedding pictures, the afternoon, as usual progressed without a hitch.

Julia and Jeff are a lovely couple who really enjoyed their wedding day, as it seemed did everyone else.

Happy wedding day photography at Cain Manor in Churt, Surrey

Cain Manor is a charming 16th century barn style country house which makes a wonderful picturesque Surrey wedding venue in Churt on the borders of Surrey and Hampshire


The wedding season has truly got under way and we've not put anything up on our blog page for awhile so here we go.

We last met the lovely Anna and Ben with their cute dog Lola in early March for their pre wed shoot in Brockwell Park.

Now it's the middle of April and we are in the quaint Surrey village of Churt, home to the exclusive 16th century barn style county house wedding venue Cain Manor.

To cut to the chase, it was a beautiful day (a bit too sunny for our liking actually), the Bride and Groom looked fabulous and were on great form, everyone had a wonderful time and the wedding from start to finish ran without a hitch.

Anna and Ben it was great being your wedding photographers.

Surrey wedding photographers in London's Brockwell Park

Last Sunday morning just after a late one the night before at a Kingswood Golf Club wedding we were back in the rather pleasant Brockwell Park. Last time we were here it was for a pre wed shoot in summer when we were able to use the beautiful walled garden as a romantic background for our couple.

This pre wedding photo shoot would have a different tone as there is nothing in bloom in early March and our handsome couple Ben and Anna had also decided to bring along their adorable puppy Lola* so a relaxed walk through the park was the order of the day.

With lots of people out enjoying a sunny and warm Sunday morning we decided to take in the ornamental lake with its bridges along with some good old trees and park benches to frame our pre wedding pictures.

As with all our pre wed shoots, which are included in all our Full Day 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.

I am sure you will agree that Ben and Anna looked like true lovers and made even more complete with the addition of the lovely Lola.

We very much look forward to covering their wedding in six weeks time at the cosy and welcoming Cain Manor.

 

* As we mentioned to Anna and Ben during the session some very good friends of ours had a sweet baby girl last year who they named Lola...and their dog's name was Archie.
