Connie and Andy’s autumn wedding at Hendall Manor Barn – Natural Wedding Photographer Sussex

It was the perfect autumn day in the East Sussex countryside on Connie and Andy’s wedding day at Hendall Manor Barn, close to Uckfield, East Sussex.

Their enthusiasm and excitement on the day was infectious, and it was such a pleasure to capture their wonderful friends and family as they celebrated throughout the day and long into the evening.

There were so many touching moments with their family and friends. When Connie’s dad first saw her before the ceremony, I struggled to keep it together myself!

The couple had asked for mostly natural shots of their day, enjoying time with family and friends outside on the terrace in the unseasonably hot sunshine before the meal and speeches. We also had some time for photographs with the couple and their wonderful bridesmaid in the grounds during the golden evening light, which set off the autumnal countryside and grounds.

We did some shots beside the pond, as reflections are also a chance to capture some more dramatic and romantic scenes.

Thank you Connie and Andy for inviting me to capture your gorgeous day!

Natural Wedding Photography East Sussex - Tatiana and Sam’s Lewes wedding

From the moment I first spoke to Tatiana and she told me about her and Sam’s wedding plans, I knew they’d be an absolute pleasure to work with. They were both so excited to create a beautiful day which felt truly authentic to them as a couple, and involve all of their family and friends in the process from creating their gorgeous venue decorations to including them in the celebrations throughout the day.

They were so keen on ensuring that their photographs captured the natural spontaneous moments, and interactions between them and their guests, and they really wanted to spend as much of their day as possible celebrating rather than too much time away taking photos.

Photographing the story of their Lewes wedding

In their pre-wedding consultation, we spoke in detail about the timeline for their day, to tell the story from first preparations through to first dance.

On the morning of the wedding, I joined Tatiana and her mum and bridesmaids to capture them preparing (not to mention their stroll around the garden, bubbly in hand, at the house where they were staying) and they were so relaxed and excited.

Having the chance to capture the anticipation at the start of the day is such a joy, especially the immense care and attention to detail which her bridesmaids took as Tatiana got into her stunning lace dress.

The sun shone throughout the early afternoon ceremony at The Grange in Lewes and we captured group shots of family and friends (as well as some outtakes of course) and as they walked to their wedding celebration at All Saints Lewes.

From getting ready to first dance, here are some of my favourite moments from the story of the day.

Thank you Tatiana and Sam for having me to capture your wonderful day!
