Here at Sundance Wedding Photography, we always say that it's not the venue that makes a great wedding, it's the people. However, when you combine a beautiful venue and amazing people - you've got something very special going on. And this is exactly what happened for Sam and Rebecca's wedding day at Winters Barns.
In the beautiful surroundings of rural Chichester, myself and David had the pleasure of capturing Beckie and Ant's big day. We've been lucky enough to shoot a lot of weddings so there is not much we haven't seen or taken photographs of. However, this wedding was a day of firsts, starting with the groom prep…
Planning a wedding is usually a stressful process. Putting together a guest list, choosing a venue, ensuring the budget stretches and general logistics all mean that the lead up is rarely straightforward. For Andrew and Nalia, they had to hurdle all these issues - twice. Due to circumstances beyond their control a September 2018 wedding had to be postponed to January 2019. In his groom’s speech, Andrew emotionally said that he thought they would never get to this day. But, thankfully they did, and myself and David were delighted to capture it.
With stunning views and being yards from the beach, The Pegwell Bay Hotel in Ramsgate, Kent is the perfect setting for an outdoor wedding in August - so what could go wrong? Well, torrential rain at 11am (!!) but the weather wasn't going to spoil proceedings. Liam and Sarah's preparations were full of the usual fun, frolics and nerves before heading to the ceremony.
In whichever culture it happens to be, a wedding day is a beautiful thing. But if you combine the Christian and Hindu faiths you get an incredible mix of tradition, culture and vibrant colours…over 2 days! Luckily for us Hannah and Daim chose Sundance Wedding Photography to document their special event, and we couldn't wait to get shooting!
Sometimes our role as wedding photographers isn't photographing the bride and groom preparations through to the first dance. Martin and Liz decided that the most important aspects of their day were capturing the ceremony, couple portraits and family group photos. So we got to work!
Here at Sundance Wedding Photography we've been lucky enough to photograph some super-stylish weddings, but Simon and Kristy took it to a new level! From the dress code to the table names, the Brylcreem to the Elvis impersonator, the 50's theme was pulled off to a T! They even stored the wedding rings inside a vintage Matchbox car! The day really epitomised their passion and love for a time gone by.
It's common for a bride and groom to take themselves off to somewhere hot on honeymoon. But Aaron and Danella were going one better. They weren't going to be visiting somewhere hot, they were going to be living somewhere hot. Or more specifically - Egypt. So as a farewell and to celebrate the lovely couple, friends and family gathered at The Abbey School in Canterbury.
A very cold but picturesque March morning was the setting for Rachael and Adrian's incredible wedding, and our first of the 2018 wedding season. Chilston Park in Maidstone, Kent was the perfect backdrop for a snowy day with the sprawling grounds and amazing rooms. Walking in to the hotel, we both knew today was going to be a good day!
Some of the most incredible parts of the wedding day are minutes before the ceremony. From the groom sharing last minute jokes with the best man to the bride's quiet thoughts before her big entrance: these are amazing moments. For Andrew and Gaynor's wedding day, we were delighted to document it.
It's common for the groom to be a little more relaxed than the bride on the big day. But Sam took this to a new level when we captured their wedding at the Abode Hotel in Canterbury. I think he passed on his chilled it out vibes to bride Lauren too as the couple spent the whole day laughing and giggling together.
The amazing thing about shooting a wedding is that for a day, you get to know a whole family. When that family then bring in huge parts of their culture and tradition, the experience is even more special. I was on groom prep duty with Alex, his parents, best man and 2 uncles. The traditions that took place were a beautiful thing to witness and observing how the morning unfolded was an absolute privilege.
Nowadays, it is rarer than you may think to photograph a wedding in a church. However, huge ceilings, natural light pouring in and stained glass windows all add up to a wedding photographer's dream. So after a client meeting full of laughs, we were delighted when Marke and Leanna booked us for their day at St Mary's Church in Deal.
On the morning of Danielle and Emile's big day, the weather for an outdoor wedding didn't look too promising: rain and grey skies threatened to force the ceremony inside. However, after a few prayers and a rain dance, a brief sunshine break ensured the couple got the outdoor ceremony of their dreams. Phew!
