Tom & Lindsey - The Brickwall Hotel

Its always nice to be a part of a wedding day where you know the family's in question. This Christmas wedding was one such occasion as I have known the Grooms family for years, in fact the Grooms brother was a Groomsman at my own wedding in August of this year.


Still full of Turkey and Christmas Pudding I set off to Lindsey's friends house to photograph the morning preparations. Everything was very calm. I arrived to find my good friend Grace Benson getting the ladies ready for the big day with her makeup skills. This also created a good photo opportunity for me and I got to work with some candid shots of the Bride and Bridesmaids.


Meanwhile Steph was with Tom and his Groomsmen at his parents place in Westfield, just a stones throw from the Church. Before long Steph took the short walk with the guys up the road for the ceremony.


Lindsey arrived at the church for the ceremony in a very nice black VW Beetle, and made her way in for the ceremony. The church looked fantastic, all decked out for Christmas and with hundreds of candles burning. A marriage at this time of year always has a very magical quality to it and this one was no different.


The weather is exactly what you would hope for of a winter wedding. The sun was out but with a cool crisp air. Perfect conditions for a photo or two in the grounds of the church before moving on to the reception at The Brickwall Hotel in the neighbouring village of Sedlescombe. Tom and Linsey had done a great job with the decorations at the hotel and myself and Steph mingled around getting some nice candid shots of the guests enjoying their welcome drinks.


Once all the formalities of the day had taken place I took the opportunity to snap a shot of our happy couple, in the central courtyard of the hotel. Which you can see as the last image on this blog. We made our way home from our last wedding of 2014 for cold turkey sandwiches having had a lovely day in the presence of many familiar faces and friends.


Tom and Lindsey recently gave birth to beautiful twin boys who I have already had the pleasure of photographing!
