Here’s the first part of Harriet and Michael’s wedding back in the summer.
Harriet and Michael were married at St John The Evengelist, St Leonards-On-Sea, with a reception at the amazing Pashley Manor Gardens near Ticehurst in East Sussex.
This wedding had a great, relaxed family feel. Harriet’s mother actually conducted the service, a few hundred metres down the road from the bridal preparation at her house, which made it easy for me – no mad dash drive between bridal prep and the service, and a vicar with a vested interest in the bride and groom getting great shots! Harriet’s mum made it so easy for us during the service, so we were able to move about freely (but respectfully, of course) to get a nice variety of angles during the service.
I started the day at the vicarage joining Harriet, her mum and the bridesmaids for some relaxed bridal preparation shots. Meanwhile, at the nearby Zanzibar Hotel, groom preparations were covered by Neil McLennan.
Neil and I then met up at St John The Evengelist to cover guest arrivals, before I made my way back up the road to cover the bridal party’s walk down to the church. As mentioned, Harriet’s mother conducted the service which made it even more personal, and Neil and I were free to get some amazing angles during the service.
Once outside, Harriet and Michael greeted their guests, before a confetti line lead everyone onto the bus to Pashley Manor Gardens.
Come back soon for part 2 of Harriet and Michael’s day. Before then, please enjoy my favourite wedding photographs from the first part of their day!
