Fun Sussex Countryside Wedding

WeddingsAdam BronkhorstComment

Ahh man I just love the weather for September weddings. It creates the best photographs. One minute it might rain, the next you've got dramatic skies, then the sun is shining and low in the sky. Bring on more September weddings please.

So this is Elle and Charlie's totally unique festival wedding in the Sussex Countryside. They totally did it their way and it was just beautiful. And man those skies..........more of them please.

Thanks so much for making me feel part of the family Elle and Charlie and massive congratulations.

Ginger Fox / Angel House - Brighton Wedding

WeddingsAdam BronkhorstComment

You've got to love the great British Weather. We'd planned to do a lovely couples portrait session at Devils Dyke during Grace and Mark's funky Brighton wedding at Angel House and The Ginger Fox pub in Sussex. However the rain had something to say about that, so you know what.....we just got on and worked around it.

We still managed to do a couple of group shots and it never rains all day, so when the light was right, I just grabbed the couple for five mins and we managed to get some portraits around the pub garden and roads outside.

Oh and I do hope that cute little puppies are the new wedding bouquet as they are so much more fun.

Massive congrats to Grace and Mark on their big day. 

2016 a short video

WeddingsAdam BronkhorstComment

So I posted a few of my favourite shots of 2016 earlier in the month, as I didn't want to swamp you with loads of images, as I hate scrolling though hundreds of photos on blog posts. 

However I did have a load more images which didn't make the final cut of 40 photos. So I decided to put together a short 3 minute films to show them instead.

Massive thanks to all the Bride and Grooms for letting me be as creative as i'd like, to all the wedding guests I had a laugh with, thanks so much. To all the other wedding professionals, thanks for working with me. And lastly, a huge THANK YOU to everyone who has second shot with me last year, you were all great.

I hope you all enjoy the short film.

Autumn Camber Sands Wedding

I love it when the summer is over and the sun is lower in the sky. You just get amazing light. 

Little would you know that about half an hour before these photos were taken it bucketed down with rain and when I say bucketed, I really mean it.

So this is Kyra & Mark's lovely fun Camber Sands wedding at The Gallivant just outside of Rye in East Sussex.

Massive congrats to them.

Fun Summer Sussex University Wedding

WeddingsAdam BronkhorstComment

It was my great pleasure to photograph a good friend of mine and an amazing photographers wedding yesterday.

I've known Jim for around eight years now, first meeting through Flickr and the Brighton photographic scene and I found out last night from Sophia, that I was the first of Jim's friends that she met as well. So it was an absolute honour to be asked to capture their big day.

Jim is a very inspirational photographer (seriously check him out). First of all he's the best architectural photographer that I know and has a passion about buildings and architecture that it is a joy to talk to him about. Secondly he is the mastermind behind the amazing MINICLICK which describes itself as 'Talks, discussions, events, exhibitions, parties and games, all around stills and moving images.' but in reality is so much more than that. Jim has been at the cutting edge of photography and putting on events showcasing the countries leading photography talent for a good number of years now. So I have to say although Jim and Sofia are some of the nicest people you are likely to meet, it was a little daunting having the task of capturing their big day.

Anyway I shouldn't have worried as I had a blast and I was kept company by another good friend and photographer Lisa Devlin (thanks so much Lisa) who shot the wedding with me (seriously the talent of photographers at the wedding was unbelievable with Lomokev, Jack Latham, Kristina Sälgvik and Peter Dench among many others there as well).

So the wedding took place at Sussex University's Meeting House, which holds a very special place in my heart as it's where I got married 11 years ago, however i've never shot a wedding there and the reception took place at The Old Market in Hove.

Well I think i've typed out enough already as this is the longest post I've done for some time. But I'll leave on the note of wishing Jim and Sofia all the best for their married life together and say thanks for picking me out of all the photographers out there.

 

 

Funky Sussex Wedding

One from the archive here. A very cool and relaxed wedding in the heart of the Sussex Countryside.

I love it when I get to shoot a couple of weddings from the same family or friendship groups as I get to meet people over again and catch up with them. So I'd shot Becky's (the bride above) sister Maddy's wedding the year before, so it was nice seeing their family again. 

What was great about this fun wedding was that it was a really relaxed and chilled affair with a smaller wedding party than a huge wedding. So everyone gets to know each other.
