Hartsfield Manor wedding – Liz and Jonathan

Hartsfield Manor is a great place to have a wedding. Tucked away in the Surrey countryside, this elegant manor house makes it easy for everyone to relax and have an enjoyable time, with everything under one roof.

Liz and Jonathan did just that – with a happy bunch of family and friends to help them celebrate. After the civil ceremony everyone congregated on the terrace for drinks. After the family group photos I took Jonathan and Liz off to photograph them with the amazing autumn colours in the grounds of the manor…

Justine & Ray’s wedding at St Lawrence Effingham & Woodlands Park Hotel

What’s the most important thing at a wedding?

Not the venue, the church, the flowers, the food (or even the photographer!) – but having all your family and friends with you to help celebrate the day. And that’s exactly what Justine and Ray had – parents, siblings, kids, cousins, nieces and nephews… and as a result it was a brilliant day.

Sharon & Mark’s Guildford Registry Office Wedding

One of the things that’s fun about photographing weddings is that they come in all shapes and sizes – some are grand affairs with guests numbered in the hundreds, some are low-key, intimate family affairs, like Sharon and Mark’s wedding at Guildford Registry Office.

Everybody was relaxed and happy and the whole thing went off without a hitch – if you don’t count the occasional rain shower which has been such a feature of our summer this year!

After the ceremony we drove to Godalming and took some pictures down by the river Wey, before the wedding breakfast at “Bel & the Dragon”, in the old church on Bridge Street.
