Blackstock Farm Wedding Photography in Sussex
Andrew & Sarah had their wedding ceremony at St Richards Church in Heathfield then their reception at Blackstock Farm in Hellingly, Sussex. Andrew & Sarah grew up in Sussex but both emigrated to New Zealand which is when they got together. I knew Sarah from when she lived in Canterbury a few years ago and I was thrilled when she asked me to photograph her wedding. After a couple of Skypes together (trying to find the best time because of the time difference!) I got a real picture of what the day would be like. For Andrew & Sarah it was all about involving their family and friends in a celebration in a lovely part of Sussex. During the getting ready stage there was a really lovely moment between Sarah and her Mum but my favourite moment was when Sarah came downstairs in her dress. Her Parent’s faces were so proud and because of a well placed mirror I managed to get all three of them in the same shot! One of my favourite ever pictures! Throughout the day there was gorgeous golden Winter light and at the Church it was streaming through the large side windows. At Blackstock Farm we went out for a stroll just before sunset and the backdrop, the light and the couple made for some really beautiful pictures. I loved covering this wedding with Benjamin Toms who came to assist me. I’ve included a few of his shots beneath too. Enjoy!
Sarah messaged me after receiving the images to say “Hi Olly, we are back in NZ and just about back into a normal routine! We absolutely love the photos!!!!!! It was so great to watch the slideshow first and then we went though all of them. There are so many amazing images there and we really are so happy with how they have captured the day- it was great to relive the day and talk about it whilst we looked at the photo’s. Our family and friends love them too. Thank you so much Olly, it really was great to have you there! Let us know if you take on a wedding in NZ anytime! Sarah and Andrew X”
