Ashley & Elena at the Alexander House Hotel, 

East Grinstead in Sussex

A truly stunning and grand venue, with a very musical couple, so the grand piano in the hall just had to be played!

A summer time wedding on 28th June, and I was hired here for 3 hours. They had 50 guests and this lovely couple had 450 completed wedding day photos. A 50/50 mix of formal photos and natural candid ones. 

I started by visiting Elena the bride for a few Bridal Portraits once she was ready. I had already chatted to the groom and taken a few photos with him, the guests and some of the ceremony area, all ready to start the wedding day.

Such wonderful weather for an outdoors ceremony, starting with the bridal party walking down the aisle. The bride was walked by her brother. 

Followed by a traditional ceremony, with readings, vows and the exchanging of the rings, and the first kiss as a married couple...

Live music was played after the service, and I stood back for the natural photos of the guests congratulating this lovely and very happy couple, while sipping champagne. 

A long cocktail hour under the shade of the tress was fabulous. With a magician too, this gave me lots of fun natural photos! I decided to take some of the family portraits and group ones here too, as it was cooler and out of the sun for the guests.

A walk and some time out for Ashley & Elena, away from the crowd. We had some beautiful gardens and areas for the couple photos, then we headed for the piano!

The groomsmen organised the confetti line up, so the couple walked with all the guests throwing flower petals, and they were covered! A good idea to do this just before the wedding breakfast meal, so you do not have confetti all over your hair in the couple photos! We did a mock cake cake too, as this was cut later in the evening. 

It was a wonderful wedding, with a wonderful couple...
