Debra & Joe's Wedding At The Art Pavilion Mile End

When I first met Debra and Joe at the art pavilion mile end I was immediately touched by how warm and friendly they were as people. And I felt very much the same about their close family and friends on the wedding day itself. A reflection of them as a couple. It was far from your typical wedding day, in fact I cant think of one remotely like it in 2016. I photograph quite a number of church and registry office weddings, this all took place in an art gallery. There was an energy all day that had me looking everywhere for things to capture, particularly as we moved into the evening celebrations. As you'll see in one particular picture the dance floor couldn't of been more lively at the end of the evening. A wonderful end to a very special wedding day. One I certainly wont forget. Here are a few of my favourites. 

"We're very pleased that we found you - honestly we couldn't have asked for more beautiful pictures, or a lovelier man to take them! you captured so many lovely moments. It's brought tears to both of our eyes to see them!"

Egbe & Peter's Wedding at Farnham Castle

Egbe & Peter are one of the loveliest couples I have had the pleasure of working with. Right from the beginning I loved seeing the connection they have. That made it all the more enjoyable for me as their wedding photographer. We first met at Frensham ponds for a get to know you shoot and within minutes I remember feeling so excited about the wedding day. When It came around I was welcomed with open arms by both families, Peter's traveling all the way from the Isle of man and Egbe's family members from London originally coming from a Nigeria. If you'd told me a couple of years before that I would be photographing a beautiful and unique wedding like this I perhaps would of been surprised. From photographing Egbe getting ready in the morning right the way through to leaving the dancefloor at the end of the night It was a real pleasure. I loved seeing family members from two different cultures mingle and get on so well. It was a great atmosphere which helped me blend in and document the events of the day. Thank you Egbe and Peter for asking me to photograph your special it was a pleasure.

"Every time we look at our photos, it brings back the day and the highs and the love that we felt.
They are are natural, artistic and beautiful! If I could give John 16 million stars on Google I would. He is one of the most professional and talented people I have had the joy of encountering."

Sophie & Ian's Wedding Photography in East Sussex

I was ever so pleased when Sophie and Ian first got in touch. Most of the weddings I photograph take place in Surrey and London so to be invited down to East Sussex was exciting. I soon had the chance to get to know them at the family home. I will always fondly remember us gathered around the barbecue on a summers afternoon looking at Sophie's Mum and Dad's wedding album, It was wonderful to see what it meant to Sophie's Mum. There were some lovely moments taken of her and her father. As we talked I could see how important photography was to the family. When the day finally came clearly a tremendous amount of effort had been put in by Sophie's parents. Everything from the marque going up to the beautifully decorated church and evening celebrations.

"Hi John, We've just watched our still film. Thank you its lovely!"
