Chris and Sophia had their wedding at Hendall Manor Barn in Uckfield, Sussex. They were guests at one of my very first weddings that I photographed back in 2012 and I was so pleased to learn that they’d decided on me as a photographer even before they’d got engaged(!!) I had a lovely time in the morning at Hendall Manor Barn with Sophia and the girls. There were some really sweet moments between her and her family. James assisted me at this wedding and took photos of the boys getting ready (I’ve used a few of his pictures beneath). Some moments really stood out to me during the day. One was Chris and his Nan- there were so many hugs between them and he was so grateful she could be there. During the speeches Sophia’s Mum spoke so brilliantly and from the heart about her experience of Motherhood and her love for Sophia. They were both crying and I was welling up behind the camera too. In the evening Sophia’s Dad and then Chris’ Dad did some solo dancing which everyone loved! I was really pleased to have been part of this day and I felt like I really got to know lots of Chris & Sophia’s family and friends. I hope you like looking through my favourite images.
Sophia left a review saying “Even before we got engaged we had already decided Olly would be our photographer if we ever got married. He took one of our favorite photos of us at our friends wedding and it’s the only one we have of us hanging in our house (now there will be plenty more going up!) We couldn’t recommend Olly enough, he is an absolute pleasure to be around and produces the most stunning photos. On the day he made us and our family feel so comfortable and relaxed, everyone commented on how lovely and great he is. Olly manages to capture the beauty of a moment so perfectly. We couldn’t wait to see the final outcome and we weren’t disappointed. His photos made us cry, laugh and then cry some more. We really couldn’t have asked for anything better or say thank you enough, they are amazing! Since our wedding we keep saying that we wished we could relive the day all over again and Olly’s beautiful photos lets us do that.. over and over.”
