Swallows Oast Wedding Photographer

One of the loveliest aspects of our work is getting to visit and photograph some amazing wedding venues across Southern England. There is always a great sense of excitement as we arrive at each venue on the morning of a wedding, wondering how the venue has been ‘dressed’ and what surprises lie in store for us and for the wedding party and their guests.

Swallows Oast is one of the loveliest wedding venues we have visited, and it is great pride that we are now recommended suppliers. We first visited Swallows Oast last winter to plan our Winter Bride Photo Shoot. The venue and surrounding grounds looked stunning – even on a grey winter’s day. They looked even more beautiful on the bright but bitterly cold day of our styled photo shoot.

Horsham Wedding of Beccie and David at South Lodge Hotel

Horsham Wedding of Beccie and David at South Lodge Hotel:

It was with real excitement that we returned from our break at Lake Annecy this August, to prepare for the Horsham wedding of Beccie and David. We had met them on a few occasions previously and had our pre-wedding meeting with them at their beautiful wedding venue, South Lodge Hotel, a few weeks previously. We’d even enjoyed following Beccie’s Twitter countdown to her special day!

South Lodge Hotel Horsham

Beautifully set in 93 acres of Sussex parkland with panoramic views of the South downs, South Lodge is an idyllic location for an unforgettable wedding celebration. Beccie and David chose an intimate room on the first floor for their ceremony. It had wonderful views across the South Downs. For their wedding reception they used the Gladstone room, a gorgeous banqueting room with triple aspect windows, high ceiling and beautiful chandeliers.

The Wedding Day

We arrived early on the day of the wedding, and initially spent some time getting detail shots of the Gladstone room and photographing guests as they arrived. After speaking with the Registrar, we photographed Beccie’s arrival and the wedding ceremony itself. Beccie was given away by her proud son, Max.

The wedding ceremony was a wonderful and very emotional occasion, witnessed by close friends and family. A rather special canine visitor arrived all the way from France too!  After the ceremony we captured some informal group shots and some documentary style shots of guests enjoying themselves and chatting to the happy couple. We then took some confetti shots on the terrace outside the Gladstone room. This was a lovely outdoor space for their guests to enjoy the sunshine and terrace views!

After drinks and canapés, we took some photos of Beccie and David entering the Gladstone room for their wedding breakfast. We then left to allow them to enjoy the rest of the day with family and friends.

Wedding Suppliers

Finally, a word about their wedding suppliers! The timings and organisation of the day were ably managed by their toastmaster, Marc Kent. Beccie’s flowers were by the super talented Fleurs of Horsham, and cake by Raspberry Ribbon Cakes – wonderful designs by both!

Here are some of our photographs from their wedding day:

Groom Preparation for The Granary Estates Wedding Newmarket

Louise and Tom's Wedding at The Granary Barns, Newmarket, Suffolk

Groom Preparation for The Granary Estates Wedding Newmarket:

This summer we were asked to assist a fellow Guild of Photographers member Liz, with groom preparation and full day attendance for the wedding of Louise and Tom at The Granary Estates, Woodditton, near Newmarket.

We met with Tom, his best man, ushers and parents at The Packhorse Inn, Moulton. It was a very relaxed atmosphere, and there was plenty of time to capture some informal and posed shots in the grounds of the inn itself, and also in the surrounding area. Here are a few images from The Packhorse Inn, prior to heading off to the wedding venue itself.

Once we arrived at the wedding venue, preparations for the wedding ceremony were well underway, and we were able to capture Tom and his entourage meeting and greeting family and friends on their arrival.

It was our first visit to The Granary Barns, which were newly opened for 2013. They are set back from the family farm, and are surrounded by typical Suffolk countryside including established trees, pasture and farmland.  The restoration of the beautiful barn was completed in the spring of 2013 and has been in high demand ever since.

At the ceremony we captured images of Tom waiting for Louise’s arrival, and also we positioned ourselves to the rear of the ceremony room whilst Liz was positioned at the front. This meant that we were able to capture a greater variety of images and angles during the ceremony. After the ceremony itself, we focussed on informal reportage photography for the remainder of the day.

There is no doubt that using two photographers provides much broader coverage, allowing for time to capture both the bride and groom viewpoints during the day. It is also desirable having this extended photography coverage for your wedding album, to fully tell the whole story of the wedding day from beginning to end.
