Chloe and I just wanted to say thank you. The way you went about capturing our special day was absolutely perfect. The photos of the groups and of my wife and I are super and you really put everybody at ease. The candids were taken as if you were not even there and as a result everyone looks so natural and full of fun!
We will most definitely be recommending you to any of our friends, family or colleges who marry in the future.
Thank you again.
Chloe and Nick Hunt, February 2013
The Ashdown Park Hotel
is a stunning wedding venue situated in the Ashdown Forest, which inspired A.A. Milne to write his Winnie The Pooh stories, in East Sussex. The neo-Gothic Victorian manor house, now Grade II listed, was constructed by Thomas Charles Thompson MP in 1867 and has subsequently served as a convent before becoming a country house hotel in 1993. The hotel is set in beautifully landscaped grounds with a lake. Weddings are conducted in the Richard Towneley Suite, a converted chapel with a magnificent vaulted hammer beam ceiling and beautiful stained glass windows - a truly wonderful location for wedding photography.
Chloe and Nicholas had their wedding on a lovely day in February with mild temperatures and gorgeous light. On arrival I captured lots of location and detail shots of the hotel and then joined Chloe at the end of her preparations. I then met up with Nicholas and his entourage for a quick photoshoot followed by candids of the guests. After the ceremony and signing of the register I whisked Chloe and Nicholas around the grounds for their bride and groom portrait session, taking advantage of the late afternoon sun. We then joined the guests for a few group shots and this was followed by candids during the pre-meal drinks. After the wedding breakfast I shot the speeches followed by the cake cut and first dance.
