How beautiful is this Nymans Garden outdoor wedding? Anna and Hans hosted both their ceremony and reception at this wonderful National Trust venue in Sussex. Their vibe was intimate, relaxed and modern.
When Anna and Hans spoke to me about what they wanted in their wedding photos they said “Having some photos that we can look back at when we are 80 and wrinkly, and think ‘phwoar! weren’t you gorgeous, love”.
This made me laugh so much and doesn’t it just sum up what great wedding photos are all about? Their day was gloriously laid back, focused on friends and family, good music and good times.
The gardens had so many wonderful pretty little nooks and crannies for photos and we also walked around the outside of the house which has been partially ruined in a fire that started when the servants had a party whilst the family were away. Imagine how much trouble they were in!
The flowers in the garden were glorious but Anna’s flower crown and bouquet from Tony Dunn still stood out. And her bridal jumpsuit was such a great look.
I would love to shoot here again so if you have booked your wedding at Nymans, get in touch and lets’ chat.

There are some advantages to a rainy Brighton Town Hall wedding. The streets are not so busy and for this cute micro wedding, when we headed to the Royal Pavilion gardens, we practically had them to ourselves. Ana and Ollie had a short but sweet wedding ceremony in the Regency Room which had wonderful light, despite the overcast weather.
After some family group photos outside the Town Hall we went for a stroll through The Lanes. I always love how excited people get when they see a wedding couple and this pair were so gorgeous that they had plenty of congratulations from strangers.
“Funny but it seems I always wind up here with you. Nice to know somebody loves me. Funny but it seems the only thing to do, RUN AND FIND the one who loves me…”
After already blogging Part One of this wedding, I’m now sharing the second part – their gorgeous Coworth Park Wedding Reception. If you recall, I fist met the Groom, Sam’s sister at my Photography Farm workshops. She is the hugely talented wedding photographer, Zoë Alexandra who is based up in Scotland.
After a beautiful ceremony at Windsor Guildhall, the wedding party relocated to Coworth Park near Windsor for an intimate, relaxed, outdoor wedding reception. The couple, Sam and Kerri travelled in complete style in a very dinky vintage Fiat 500. It was a wedding that was small in numbers but huge in emotions with friends and family travelling from far and wide to attend and to celebrate.
“I was lost, now I am found, I BELIEVE IN YOU, I’ve got no bounds..”
When I turned up at the charming Windsor Guildhall Wedding of Sam and Kerri, it was lovely to see so many familiar faces. See, I have known the groom’s sister Zoë ever since she attended my very first Photography Farm workshop over a decade ago. Since then, we’ve had so many good times and many of those have been hosted by Zoë’s lovely family.
They even hosted a workshop for us within their home and Zoë’s mum kindly baked us a cake shaped like a unicorn. They are one of those families that you would like to adopt you and Zoë’s own wedding to her wonderful Sam was my all time favourite to attend. Yes, I got to be a guest and it was crazy amounts of fun.
So when Sam got in touch to say that Zoë had recommended me for his wedding photography in Windsor, I of course did not hesitate to say yes as I knew it would be so nice to see the clan Haslam again. It always super flattering when a fellow wedding photographer recommends you for someone close to them – you can see Zoë’s own gorgeous work over on her website. Sam was marrying the beautiful Kerri who was pregnant with their first child. She looked utterly radiant when she arrived in a super cute vintage Fiat 500.
This is just Part One of this adorable wedding, stay tuned as I will share the second part soon.
