Mark & Ash’s Pre-Wedding Photoshoot, West Sussex

From the moment I met Mark & Ashley, I loved them! Such a warm, endearing couple and a pair that were clearly in love and very excited about their special day. We booked their pre-wedding photoshoot, and decided on Wakehurst Place in West Sussex as the backdrop.

Being the end of June we were of course expecting nothing short of fantastic weather. We met up in the car park, with Nick meeting Mr & Mrs Hall-to-be for the first time and took a nice stroll into the grounds. We found a lovely spot to set up a picnic and captured them drinking wine, eating strawberries and generally having a nice time.

Pre-wedding shoots are always a great way to break the ice and I firmly believe they make a huge difference to the photos we capture on the wedding day. Our couples feel more relaxed and we’ve had time to walk through a few poses so it doesn’t feel so ‘alien’.

If you’re interested in booking us for your wedding photography, have a look around the website to get a feel for our style and call me (Lucy) on 07843 092735. Alternatively you can drop an email to lucy@candyflossandbowties.com

After a giggle with them over some squished cupcakes and fizz we felt a few drops of rain (good old British Summer!) so we started heading back to shelter. En-route we noticed a birds of prey exhibit and took the opportunity to get Mark & Ash handling a gorgeous owl! Luckily they were completely up for the idea, we’d never make people do something they didn’t want to.. (well, almost never..)

The rain then really came down so we decided to call it a day and planned to meet up later in the week to finish the shoot. This couldn’t have worked out better as we met up a few days later at the Balcombe Viaduct and managed to capture some super images that turned out to be some of my favourites.

Mark & Ash – Thank you both for such a fun session, we loved it and are VERY excited about your wedding day.
