Emma and Matt’s lovely Sussex wedding blessing ceremony at Hellingly Church followed by a reception at the East Sussex National Hotel

Emma and Matt are living in America but came home for their Wedding Blessing ceremony at Hellingly Church where Emma was christened, followed by a wonderful reception at the East Sussex National.  I met Emma and her Mum at the venue the year before and we managed all the organisation despite her being the other side of the world.   Getting Matt and Emma together in the UK was proving difficult and so we decided to do their pre wedding shoot just two days before the actual wedding.  It was a great opportunity to catch up on all the last minute details and we walked down into the bluebell woods for a few photos.  Matt then decided he would love to give them as presents on the day so I edited them as soon as I got home and the next day Matt was despatched to Lewes to get them printed and framed!  It was a quick turnaround but a great present for their parents on their wedding day.

The weather stayed fine and on the Saturday it dawned a lovely sunny day as Emma got ready at the hotel.

before heading back up the A22  to the East Sussex National and an opportunity to go down to the golf course and wonderful grounds for a few photos before joining their guests for drinks and their Wedding Breakfast.  Family and friends are obviously incredibly important to Emma and Matt and they are just a brilliant couple – it was a day full of fun  and laughter…
