This marvelous wedding really had it all – the most beautiful bride, a very handsome groom, seven fantastic bridesmaid, a lot of handmade details and the most amazing venue. It was my first wedding at Lewes Castle and I absolutely fell in love with this place.

There was a charming open air area in the castle which gave an an exceptionally calm, romantic feeling. It really suited Claire and David who are the most gentle, loving and kind people you could ever meet. It was a special moment where I was able to share their happiness and tears of joy. These are my favourite kind of wedding pictures!

The reception took place at the beautiful summerfield under a huge marquee. Friends and family of Claire and David sat and danced at the campfire. It was a hot summer evening and the soft light from sunset was perfect. The golden light of a hot summer evening was perfect so after the first dance I took Claire and David for a walk… take a look:

The Story of Claire & David

The excitement, the nerves, the stress of planning all disappears in one amazing, fuzzy blur when you are walking down the aisle and see the man you are about to marry smiling back at you. For our wedding we wanted an intimate ceremony and then a big celebration with all our friends and family, ideally outdoors with beautiful views. We were very lucky to find a rustic castle to have our outdoor ceremony and then the most stunning field surrounded by the South Downs where we had a huge celebration with delicious food, lots of drink, an epic funk band, a fire pit and of course enough fairly lights to sink a battle ship!

Everyone says it, but it truly is the most amazing day that you will remember forever. It goes by in a heartbeat, take time to soak it all in. What was so lovely about Jacob is that just at the right moment, he whisks you off somewhere beautiful to be photographed as husband and wife, not just to take pictures but to give you time to be alone together to soak in the enormity of the day. We now have the most stunning pictures of that time together that we will never forget.

Jacob instantly made us feel at ease with him, it was a pleasure to have him photograph our day and we are now lucky enough to call him our friend.
