Fine family wedding at Wotton House, Dorking
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
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.

Xmas wedding photography report from Farnham Castle
It's just 6 days before Christmas on this busy rush of Yule time weddings and events starting at the grand and historic Farnham Castle and where the weather couldn't be better - blue skies and warm sunshine.
Which is just how we left off with our lovely couple Adam and Sammy back in November when we had our fun and very relaxed pre wed shoot up on a sunny and packed Box Hill.
Back to Farnham Castle where Adam is with his Groomsmen in The Great Hall finishing off the final wedding preparations whilst Sammy is over in The Gatehouse getting ready with her Bridesmaids; and both were relaxed, smiling and as welcoming as could be. It was going to be a great day.
The wedding did indeed run smoothly and was great fun especially during the mammoth speeches which were in three parts, one each after each course and included the very funny set from The Three Wise Men.
It was a shame we didn't have the opportunity to take some wedding pictures of Adam and Sammy in the castle grounds but as soon as the sun started to go down the temperature suddenly dropped and combined with a chilling wind it was just too cold, however, we managed to get some lovely romantic shots inside so all was fine.
It was our first time at Farnham Castle and it was pleasurable experience; it's a beautiful Surrey wedding venue and the staff were super helpful and friendly.
We wish Sammy and Adam a wonderful honeymoon and a fabulous future together, they make a lovely happy couple.
Here's also a shout out to some of the other suppliers too in particular Sharon and Claire covering hair and make-up who were great to talk to and Ashley from John Harris Videography who was great to work with.
