When Alis and Glen booked me for their Hoath House wedding, I knew it was going to be a good one. They had been guests at a previous wedding I had photographed and had liked what they saw. It’s always good when you meet a couple that ‘get’ what you do and let you get on with it. There weren’t any long shot lists or demands to get this or get that. For me, it shows that the couple like what you do and trust you enough to get on with the job while they enjoy the day.
I usually ask if there’s anything I need to know about the day that wouldn’t necessarily be picked up on. Alis told me that she would be wearing her late mother’s pearls and after the ceremony at St Lawrence Church, Bidborough, she’d be placing flowers at her graveside – a touching moment indeed. These are the sort of things I need to be informed about.
The Hoath House wedding reception was held on a lovely August afternoon. The manor house is set in six acres of grounds and has lovely views over the High Weald. It was good venue to photograph at. There’s plenty of good backdrops and lots of scope to get scene setting shots. I just wish people would spread out a little more during drink receptions but this mainly has to do with the location of the booze at the time!
And here’s a lovely testimonial from Alis,
“We cannot recommend Craig highly enough. From our intial contact with him right through to receiving the photos we have been so pleased with his service. We wanted a photographer with an artistic flair and that’s exactly what we got. On the big day itself Craig was really courteous and hard working. As a bonus, he is a super lovely guy too! Despite the fact he himself had hoilday after the wedding we still got our photos back really quickly and they were absolutely amazing. We can’t thank him enough for contributing such great service for one of the most important parts of our wedding.”
