Preview: Chris & Alice’s wedding at Slaugham Place, Sussex

A few photos from Chris & Alice’s wedding at St Mary Magdalene’s Church in Bolney and Slaugham Place, both in West Sussex. After the church service, we stopped off at Staplefield for a couple of photos with the 1934 Wolseley 21/60 County Saloon they had hired for the day.

After an initial summer shower of rain, it brightened up for us to take advantage of the breath-taking ruins of Slaugham Place and the bridge over the moat.

This shot was taken right at the end of the moat using a long focal length, 200mm, to maximise the reflections and light to produce these great colours.

 The bokeh in these two photos have rain drops falling off the trees and caught by the sunlight in the background.

We didn’t quite catch a full golden hour as the sun would have disappeared behind the tall trees in the west, so we started shooting a couple of portraits in evening light by the arches.

Finally, Gosia (My assistant) and I, had a play around with some flashes at night with the arches, placing a flash behind Chris & Alice and a flash either side of the ruins. A light fog had started rolling in to create this misty atmosphere!
