The  most beautiful day of your life deserves a beautiful location and for all you couples who are planning your big day, the beautiful location that we recommend is the South Lodge Hotel.  This beautiful hotel 5-star in the Sussex Downs is 93 acres of heaven (including a record breaking largest single 150 year old Rhododendron!), if it is good enough to host Winston Churchill, and world leaders for the G20 summit; we believe that it will be good enough for you.

The stunning 19th century neo-Jacobean nonpareil hotel in Horsham allows for multiple options, from a relaxed civil partnership to a luxuriously opulent outdoor wedding affair.  The South Lodge Hotel allows for a myriad of options whatever your vision for your big day. From 10 guests to 250, a wedding breakfast or a buffet the choice is yours.

The beauty of this venue is the level of flexibility that is available as the weather in the UK can always be counted on not to be counted on – the hotel allows for a contingency whatever the weather.

The wonderful thing about this hotel are the incredible rooms with which are fantastic way to accommodate your guests for the festivities.  Every room within the hotel has its own unique design, a mix of country style, modern comfort and opulence: double rain showers, Jacuzzis, and lounge rooms are delightful fillips that add to the experience. You can also luxuriate in beds that have handstitched mattresses using the finest materials including lamb’s wool, mohair, silk and bamboo, the EPOC crafted beds are like sleeping on a cloud – you will wish that you could bring them home with you.

Well this afternoon we have two hearts in two parts with the lovely images of Gemma & Jay coming from the lens of This and That Photography.

This and That shared: Gemma is one of my oldest and dearest friends. She has a good soul and I was honoured to be the one to photograph her day. To watch her marry her best friend who is so madly deeply in love with her. I cried my eyes out the entire day, watching Gem finally finally get what she deserves, total happiness. I love you guys.

On that beautiful note – it’s time for you to enjoy an amazing wedding.  Let part one of the shutter candy begin.

So yesterday we left you at the altar, in a purely metaphorical sense only and today we are back to share some more from the wedding world of Kirsty and Robert as captured by Christine McNally.


In case you missed part one – you can catch that here. Today, we have Christine sharing more in her own words about this super cute shoot!

So much work went into this day… The tea cups, bunting, flowers, sweeties… the colours are just beautiful. Kirsty & Robert are such a sweet couple – and I absolutely loved capturing their day. You’ll notice the very cute Domino’s box with the very beautiful earrings was a special touch from Robert, as they used to work together at the super pizza place!

Enjoy today’s dose of shutter candy!
