I love shoot­ing Wadhurst Castle wed­dings es­pe­cially when I get to work with lovely couples like Mathilde and Nathan. Wadhurst Castle is a strik­ing and unique coun­try house built in the Regency peri­od. The castle stands 550ft above sea levels and com­mands mag­ni­fi­cent pan­or­amic views of the beau­ti­ful Sussex coun­tryside. But enough about the castle, I’ll get back to that. Let’s start from the beginning. 

On the day I ar­rived at the castle early so that I could take some shots of Mathilde as she made her fi­nal pre­par­a­tions for the day. She was in good hands and good spir­its with her at­tent­ive bridal party on hand to help her. I also took the op­por­tun­ity to take a few shots of the ven­ue. I loved the little touches that had been ad­ded by Mathilde and Nathan. Those little quirks say so much about personalities.

I then caught up with Nathan and his grooms’ party (who were look­ing very dap­per) and were tak­ing a breath­er in the mag­ni­fi­cent grounds. I took some shots of them and of some of the guests as they star­ted to arrive.

Then it was back up to Mathilde who was ready and look­ing amaz­ing in a gor­geous lace de­tail fit­ted dress with an el­eg­ant train that gave her the most ex­quis­ite sil­hou­ette in my por­trait shots.

The ce­re­mony was held out­side in front of the pa­vil­ion in the castle’s beau­ti­ful walled garden. It was the per­fect set­ting for a sum­mer wed­ding. It was a lovely per­son­al ce­re­mony with live mu­sic and some heart­felt words spoken.

After the ce­re­mony, every­body en­joyed re­cep­tion drinks on the castle’s im­press­ive ter­race. Meanwhile, I whisked Mathilde and Nathan away to take some por­trait shots of the around the grounds. (Which is an­oth­er reas­on why I love shoot­ing wed­dings at Wadhurst Castle – the grounds provide the per­fect back­drop for por­trait shots.)

Then every­body went in­side for a de­li­cious wed­ding break­fast and en­joyed some very well-received speeches. Afterwards, I asked Mathilde and Nathan out­side for a couple more por­trait. I had to make the most of the early even­ing sunshine.

The even­ing was star­ted with a ro­mantic first dance. The im­age of Mathilde and Nathan em­braced in a dance with their loved ones look­ing on seemed a fit­ting im­age to close the story of their wed­ding day.


Testimonial

From the first meet­ing to the day of our wed­ding Michal was what we would con­sider the per­fect pho­to­graph­er. He was very pro­fes­sion­al and at­tent­ive to what we wanted to cap­ture from the day. On the day it­self, him­self and his col­league blen­ded in like one of the guests and were re­laxed about the pho­tos that they took. The pic­tures per­fectly sum­mar­ised the day and we now have pho­tos that we can look back on and re­mem­ber the spe­cial day. We could not re­com­mend him enough and we think the pho­tos speak for themselves!
