I loved everything about this Bignor Park Wedding from start to finish. When I met Claire & Rob a few days before their wedding it was April and it was raining, HARD.  They were going to have their wedding outside, so we were a bit worried, I’m not going to lie!

Because in fact, it didn’t stop raining for the entire meeting.  But we remained hopeful and began discussing their wedding plans.  It is really important to have a back up plan, because if it DOES rain and you are getting married outside you do not want to get wet!

An outside wedding ceremony at Bignor Park

So that is what we did!  We walked together around the stunning grounds of Bignor Park and I listened to Claire & Rob’s plans.  And WHAT plans!  It sounded really brilliant, even if the heavens did open, we would be OK!  The surrounding gardens of this stately home are really exquisite, there is a loggia which is sanctioned for marriages and stable house for receptions.  There is even a back up marquee for an outdoor ceremony.

Once we had had a walk around the grounds and discussed what photo option there were, we then walked into the stable house.  So this is where Claire and Rob were going to have their wedding breakfast and dancing.  It is a great location with a really wholesome feel to it.

On the day of the wedding the weather was absolutely PERFECT so all that worry was for nothing!  I met Claire up the road from the wedding venue, her and her bridesmaids were getting ready in a little cottage.  As I walked in, I was met with instant calm and the most welcoming feeling.

Claire and Rob engineered a beautifully eclectic wedding at Bignor Park House, it was a photographer’s dream!  No stone was left unturned, the decor was simplistically beautiful, even the beer was handmade lovingly by Rob himself!

Friends and Family

All of Claire & Rob’s friends and family had their own important roles to play and I got so caught up in the emotion and excitement of the whole day, the selection of images I have are by no means the full extent of the sheer amazingness of this wedding, merely just a few that I was particularly drawn to whilst editing.  I do hope you enjoy looking through these as much as I did shooting!!
