Lara and Dean’s wedding at Ashdown Park

I met the delightful Lara and Dean at the Ashdown Park Wedding Fair back in the winter of 2017, back then we had no idea that it was going to turn out to be such a fabulous summer. As a Sussex Wedding Photographer I know Ashdown Park hotel is one of those wonderful English venues that caters well for any weather, but the lawns and lake really lend themselves to being outside in the sunshine.

One of the first things I noticed about Lara and Dean was their enthusiasm; not just for their wedding or photography, but life in general. As the photos illustrate, the whole day turned out to be a tremendous laugh for all involved thanks to their effervescent and joyous spirit. In fact Lara couldn’t hold back from giggling most of the way as she was walked down the aisle.

Champagne on ice, 28 degrees Celsius, friends and family enjoying the summer sun, what more could you ask for? As a Sussex Wedding Photographer and regular photographer at Ashdown Park, I’m always keen to include some photos of the magnificent venue. After lining up the family photos with the venue in the background we proceeded to walk the extensive grounds at sunset and get some beautiful portraits of the bride at groom.
