This wedding was extra special for Southdowns Manor Wedding Photographer! I’ve photographed Same and Warren’s engagement proposal and also did an adorable family shoot with their giant dog, Robin. I’ve loved documenting all the special moments in their lives over the past two years,
When Sam and Warren reached out to photograph their wedding almost immediately after their engagement proposal! Because these two had already booked the wedding venue before even getting engaged!
Because of the chaos Covid caused, these two decided to start looking at wedding venues before Warren even proposed. They liked Southdowns Manor so much, they booked it right away. It might sound unusual, but they are not my first couple to do this. Covid has well and truly turned things upside down.
It’s crazy navigating this post-covid world, but also wonderful. Societal rules have been thrown out the window, and couples are playing by their own rules now. And I love it!
Sam and Warren’s Wedding Day
Sam and Warren are such a chill couple and I loved how relaxed they were about everything. They began their day at the closest hotel to the church: Premiere Inn!
They wanted a few getting ready photographs, but knew the rooms would be challenging to photograph in, so it was just a quick 30 minutes. A photographer’s version of a drive-by shooting if we are going to be punny about it.
After getting ready we headed to The Church of the Sacred Heart and St Peter the Apostle for their wedding ceremony. This is such a unique catholic church and I loved how well lit the space was.
Next we headed to Southdowns Manor wedding venue for the reception and lots of dancing!
Kelsie did an amazing job with our engagement, wedding and family shoot with our dog! She genuinely goes the extra mile and actually takes the time to get to know you! She has photographed some of the biggest moments of mine and my wife’s lives thus far and we cannot recommend her enough!!Sam and Warren
Southdowns Manor Wedding Photographer
You might recognise many of these photographs as they featured pretty heavily on Southdowns Manor’s social media for several months after the wedding.
As a Southdowns Manor Wedding Photographer, it’s an honour to photograph one of the venue’s favourite weddings from 2022!
As an exclusive-use wedding venue, Southdowns Manor is the perfect place for those looking for an intimate event. With a rural location near South Downs National Park, it is a quiet setting away from any disgruntled neighbours.
With some beautiful gardens in front of the wedding venue, South Downs has a beautiful location for group and couple portraits.
I also adore the marquee feel of the reception room – with the space completely covered in elegant drapings.
Till next time,
