Congratulations to Alec and Claire married yesterday at Upwaltham Barns, Sussex Downs

In Upwaltham Barn Wedding Photographer by Helen Rushton4 Comments

Yesterday was a very special day for many people especially Alec and Claire who got married at Upwaltham Barns but also for me, since they first chose me to be their Wedding Photographer last year, I have been lucky enough to get to know Alec and Claire well and it was a pleasure to be a part of their wedding day. Both Alec and Claire have an infectious zest for life as well as sharing my passion for shoes, and wow do they do the shoe fetish thing with style (although sill not convinced by the socks Alec!)!!

This special couple are always fun to be around with their quick wit and willingness to try anything and every time I think of their Pre Wedding Shoot at Brighton Pier I can’t help but laugh, possibly the windiest day ever but we still had so much fun, absolutely nothing was going to be able to put a dampener on their wedding day and indeed it didn’t.

We all enjoyed a great day of celebration with brilliant music and food all set within the gorgeous Upwaltham Barns, a Wedding Venue of distinction and before Alec and Claire jet off on honeymoon I wanted to share a couple of my favourite images to say a BIG THANK YOU to them both for choosing me to do their Contemporary & Stylish Wedding Photography. Please feel free to leave your comments on this post and let me know what you think…

  2. Helen,

    Claire & I have just got back from our honeymoon and are just getting our heads around the fact that the big day and all the trimmings are now over! What can we say other than all the planning paid off and we had an amazing day, you were everything and more than we could have hoped for! We have had so many great comments from our family and friends about lots of different aspects of the wedding day, the Guest Book made up from our pre wedding shoot getting most of them!! We feel that you really have captured us, we wanted something different for our photo memories and you have delivered way above what we had hoped for… Now having spent 4 HOURS with you choosing the final pictures for our album we are so excited to see the finished article as again, you did an amazing job! Thanks again for your professionalism from start to finish, your immediate recognition of the way we wanted and needed to be handled and most importantly for delivering our dream wedding pictures… We really hope to see you soon :0) Alec & Claire Drury xx

  3. Awww thank you so much for your kind comments Alec & Claire – what can I say except it was my pleasure and privilege to be a part of your special day. I’m so happy that everything was exactly as you wanted, and more, it’s means a lot! I will definitely be staying in touch so don’t worry, you haven’t seen the last of me yet!! Love, Helen x
