Christmas Wedding at Ashdown Park Hotel in East Sussex

Intimate Wedding at Ashdown Park Hotel in East Sussex

Loretta and Mark had originally intended to be married in November, but due to the second Lockdown, they had to move their wedding back to the Saturday before Christmas. Fortunately, I was available for the new date.

The ceremony was held at the Mansion House, Royal Tunbridge Wells. It was an intimate wedding ceremony for just very close family and friends. As we left they were greeted by some extended family who waited across the car park to pass on their congratulations.

We drove to the magnificent Ashdown Park Hotel for photographs and their wedding breakfast.

The hotel was very busy when we arrived, so the guest enjoyed drinks in the room where they were due to enjoy the wedding breakfast.

While that was going on, I took the opportunity to photograph our beautiful bride, Loretta by the stunning Christmas Tree in reception. To light this i used my new Rotolight NEO2, bouncing the light off a side wall to create shape to the image.

The shots by the window seat are lit by natural light such as there was. It was gloomy and raining hard outside which always separates the “men from the boys” when it comes to creating wedding photographs!
