WeddingsAdam BronkhorstComment

I freaking love Winter Weddings!!!!!

These are a few sneak peeks from Helen and Alex's lovely and intimate Sussex Countryside Winter Wedding at the lovely Hendall Manor Barns near Uckfield.

A few things i loved:

The cold
The fact that Helen braved the cold in her dress and didn't complain once
Alex's classic BMW car
Alex's trilby hat
Hendall Manor Barns staff
Bubbles
The guests
Small Weddings where I actually get to talk to the guests
Ice on the ground and in the pond
The ground keep who decided to burn a big pile of leaves and create all that smoke

So massive congrats to Helen & Alex for a lovely wedding. 

Fun Sussex Countryside Wedding

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. 

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.

 

 

Romantic Bluebell Railway Wedding

WeddingsAdam Bronkhorst1 Comment

I had a lovely day yesterday with Rhiane & Nathan at their romantic railway adventure wedding on the Bluebell Railway in Sussex. It was full of excitement and mishap. Like the Groom leaving his suit in London, the coach for the guests managing to smash a window and deliver all the guests just in time for the ceremony, only to find that we were at the wrong station.

However you know what....it just made more fun on the wedding day and didn't ruin a thing. Everything was sorted out and Rhiane & Nathan were so relaxed about everything and just took it in their stride. It was such a great day and I loved chatting to all the guests who really were great fun. And having high tea on a train was such a treat.

Thanks so much Rhiane & Nathan and the Griffin Pub in Fletching, Sussex for being such a great venue as well. 

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.
