Starting the day off at Brighton's Hilton Metropole, I had a blast with Corrinne and her bridesmaids as they got ready in relaxed fashion. Corrinne had chosen a really lovely natural light dress which was made up of hundreds of layers of the finest chiffon which she said made her feel like a Greek Goddess. She certainly looked like one.
After getting ready, we hit the limo to make our way to the main event at Cissbury Barns. Corrinne and Kevi had got married legally the day before and for their main ceremony with friends they'd decided to have a celebrant. That celebrant was Claire Bradford, a really lovely lady who gave the most beautiful reading for Corrinne & Kevi.
Following on from the ceremony I photographed the most beautiful confetti tunnel and as the happy couple walked through the shower of confetti Kevi grabbed Corrinne and gave her one hell of a kiss that was a magical moment.
Then the party really got started! I find weddings usually begin with a slow build throughout the day to the party in the evening when people hit the dance floor. In the case of Corrinne and Kevi's wedding the party accelerator was held firmly against the floor from just after the ceremony when drag act The Drag with No Name made her entrance to the garden and created one hell of an atmosphere with a hilarious performance that got the party cranked up to the max.
Speeches were emotional and beautiful, Corrinne's friend Travis(www.taviseddie.com)gave the final speech. She delivered a self composed/written song with bridesmaids Georgia and Liz. It was a wedding experience I'll never forget.
The light was perfect for a summer wedding and following the wedding breakfast I hit the stunning grounds surrounding Cissbury Barns with the bride and groom to photograph these two fantastic people in the setting sun and I couldn't be happier with the images.
The evening ticked all the boxes of what you'd want from a wedding with all involved having just the best time and it was a pleasure to be a part of it all. Corrinne's little surprise with the first dance hit the spot :-)
"Carl was really good to work with because he had lots of really fantastic ideas. The cool thing about actually working with Carl was that he played it by ear throughout the day so we got as many of my list of photos done as possible. He mentioned to me beforehand what to expect from the day which was pretty much spot on. When we got to the day he pre-assessed the venue and found some really nice areas where we could do some nice sunset photos. During the day the group shots were really fun and they were really easy, Carl assembled everyone quickly and was really lovely to everybody and really charming to all involved."
"The pictures came out beautifully. The styling that Carl puts on his images make the quality look beyond any I've ever seen from any other wedding photographer. I've always really admired Carl's work, I've followed him for a long time on Instagram and social media. I actually believe my pictures for my wedding came out better than all the pictures I've seen. It maybe that they're genuinely nicer but personally I think it's because Carl has a really great way of being able to tune in to exactly what it is that you're thinking and what you're feeling and you need and the vibe that you want and how you want your images to come out. He homes in on that and really does capture the moment perfectly inspired by your own thoughts and feelings, he basically captures the day the way you want it. The images came out beautifully, take a look for yourself."
