Sarah & John | Horsley Estate Wedding
A wet, windy day in February 2014 saw us at Sarah & John’s winter wedding. Sarah got ready at her parents home before making her way to St. Peters Church in Chertsey where her groom John was eagerly awaiting her arrival. The sun finally made an appearance during the ceremony, which is always a challenge to a photographer, as when you are shooting during the ceremony you obviously cannot control where the light falls! Fortunately, it created a lovely pool of light on the couple and mixed with the fabulous emotion in Sarah’s face really makes these images shine.
After the service, Sarah and John had the unique experience of exiting the church through a celebration arch of brooms and shovels! The church was the main hub for flood protection activity in Chertsey that month (Britain’s February Floods), so these guys were all working close by and wanted to do something special for the couple. You certainly don’t get to see that at most weddings.
The reception was held at Horsley Estate in Surrey which is always a lovely venue to photograph, the little chapel is a very unique place with a special atmosphere which really lends itself to capturing intimate portraits. Horsley Park, is a good choice for winter weddings when the weather doesn’t always allow for couple pictures outside, there are lots of stunning locations indoors.
