Donna & Nick's Wedding at Wotton House in Dorking

When I arrived at wotton house I started by capturing Donna and friends getting ready, I don't think I have ever seen anyone so relaxed on the morning of their wedding day. Seeing donna so calm was quite something. Shortly after I found my self going out to the front of the venue to take photos of Nick arriving in his friend Dave’s ferrari. It was great seeing the reactions of Nick’s friends to the car turning up. It was almost the highlight of the entire day for them except of course it was second to seeing Donna and Nick’s first kiss at the ceremony. One of the highlights for me was seeing Donna’s Dad smiling away as he walked her down the aisle, something I'm sure will stay with me when I look back at the weddings I have photographed in the years to come. Another thing that we were all so thankful for on the day was the weather. It was perfect, which made capturing Donna and Nick together in the late afternoon sunlight very enjoyable. I have always loved shooting into the light, It’s something I feel brings a magical feel to photos. As it was a March wedding the sun didn’t stay around for long and in no time at all we were inside for the wedding breakfast and then the speeches. the night ended for me on a busy dance floor. I wonderful day for two lovely people .

"Since our first meeting together to view John's portfolio, we knew he was the man for us. He took a genuine interest in us as a couple. On our wedding day John was brilliant, he was very curtious of everyone involved and completely blended into the background, we total forgot he was there, he shot the day as it happened. The images we now have are a true reflection of our memory of the day. There was no dragging us away for posed photos, meaning we spent more precious time with each other and our friends and family."
