The wedding of Natalie & Sean at St Francis & St Anthony’s Church, and Handcross Park School in Crawley

Natalie and Sean’s wedding was my second commission at St Francis and St Anthony’s church in Crawley within the space of a month!

It’s always handy to have previously photographed at a church or reception venue before, and it is always an advantage as you have experience of both the venue and the staff.

I hadn’t photographed a wedding at Handcross Park School though – this was a new hunting ground for me, although as with all new venues I always visit them before hand to scout them for the best photographic locations, and this was no exception.

Handcross Park School is a private school, and boasts 50 acres of stunning natural surrounds.

Naturally I was looking forward to exploring it’s grounds and making use of the vast natural backdrops for capturing our bride and groom portraits.

Unfortunately like most weddings, there just is never enough time to get all the images that I would like to capture within the numerous opportunities – but we still managed to provide Natalie and Sean with some lovely portraits.

You can view a small selection of images from the day below, and or of course are welcome to browse the complete collection here.
