A promotional slideshow for The Grange Bar & Restaurant

I have a very good and long-standing working relationship with The Grange Bar & Restaurant in Wallington, Surrey.

They are a venue that I have enjoyed working with on numerous weddings over the years.

Many of you who are my regular followers will have as a result seen many photos from the resultant weddings.

Anyone who knows Beddington Park will know what I mean when I say that it is a very picturesque park in many places, especially the surrounding area where the Grange is situated.

It has provided me with many great photographic opportunities for those weddings I’ve captured, and it still inspires me to this day with it’s versatility and depth.

I thought that I would put together a small promotional video slideshow to showcase some of those images over the years, and also help the venue inspire it’s next generation of wedding couples to have a look at what The Grange can offer them as the potential home for their special day…

 

A Wedding Thank You Card

Being a wedding photographer certainly has its pressures, but on the flip side it is an incredibly rewarding job giving couples something that they will cherish for the rest of their lives.

It’s a lovely feeling knowing that your photos can bring so much joy and happiness to others.

Even more so, when a couple send you a thank-you card personally expressing their gratitude and how happy they are with their wedding photos.

I was lucky enough to receive such a card from one of my recent bride and grooms – Prisha & Graham, having recently captured their big day at The Grange last month.

It’s very touching and humbling, and I know that I’m fortunate to enjoy a job that can give you such fulfilment.

I’ve taken two snap shots of Prisha & Graham’s card here below 🙂

The Grange relaunch their website

I’m a recommended wedding supplier with the Grange Bar & Restaurant in Beddington Park, Surrey.

They have just relaunched their website and wedding brochure with a fresh rebrand.

I was delighted when they asked if they could use some of my photographs from various weddings that I have captured there over the years.

Anyone who knows the Grange will be aware that it is a gem of a venue that offers couples a lovely and picturesque backdrop for a wedding – the surrounding parkland is extremely pretty and also very varied.

It’s my favourite local venue as it just offers so much to a photographer; natural green backgrounds, water features, lovely bursts of colour with well maintained floral beds, plus quirky architecture and trees.

Anyway, please feel free to have a look at their new website, and in doing so you might recognise some of the photos on there!

Rachael & Rob’s Wedding at The Grange, Beddington Park

Here’s a slideshow video to showcase a selection of the official photographs from Rachael and Rob’s wedding at The Grange in Beddington Park, Beddington Surrey.

I’m a recommended supplier at The Grange, and do quite a few weddings each year there as a result – one thing that I have to say, is that I never tire of this venue… the surrounding park offers a wealth of photographic opportunities that continue to entice me to try new things.

It really is a delight to work at, and everything is all nicely located closely to each other, that we can jump from one portrait location to another.

I’m also pleased to say that one of the images from this wedding was entered into The Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographer’s Traditional Wedding Photography Competition for July, and it received a ‘Highly Commended’ award – a testament to the quality of location at my disposal for composing a striking bridal portrait.

Please feel free to play the embedded slideshow below and have a browse of the backdrops that I mention, I think that you’ll agree that The Grange does lend itself as a picturesque location for a wedding…

 

Vicky & Elliott’s Wedding at Chiltern Church and The Grange

After meeting Vicky and Elliott at a wedding fayre, I immediately knew that they would be one of those extremely photogenic couples.

Add to that the bonus that they were to be wed at the chocolate box Chiltern Church in Sutton, and a reception at the lovely The Grange in Beddington Park, meant that we were guaranteed to get some cracking shots!

This was a first for me capturing a wedding at Chiltern Church.  It is not your conventional church, but it is a very picturesque place of worship which lends itself greatly as a romantic backdrop for a wedding.

Any of you who know The Grange, will know that it’s situated in Beddington Park, and is surrounded by lots well maintained flower beds and other natural beauty, all providing many options and vibrant colours for photos.

It was a cracking wedding, and we did indeed capture lots of amazing shots throughout at both venues.  It was an absolute pleasure, and Vicky and Elliott were both great and so relaxed which always help.

You can view a nice array of some of the shots from their day here below:
