After meeting Tanya & Rob in a nightclub that I was working in at the time, a few years later I found myself photographing the best biggest day of their lives; their wedding day!

My day started getting a few groom prep shots at Concierge Camping where a lot of the guests stayed and set up camp the day before. Tanya and Rob kindly offered me a spot to camp insisting that I pack the camera away once I was done and enjoy the party! After I was done with Rob I headed off with the father of the bride, Alan to meet the stunning bride, Tanya at the Chichester Harbour Hotel, a luxury boutique hotel set in the heart of Chichester. Here I stayed with Tanya for an hour getting a few prep shots.

Next up was the gorgeous Southend Barns. It was my first time there and it did not disappoint. The ceremony was held in the gorgeous Dairy Barn. Once that was complete we had the cake cutting which was provided by Rob’s sister, Lucy. The wedding breakfast, speeches and evening entertainment were held in The Threshing Barn.

Having also photographed Rob’s 30th birthday party I knew the evening was going to be pretty special. The band and DJ were both fantastic and had everyone on the dance floor right until the end which gave me a chance to grab loads of great party shots!

Anyway enough of the chat, here’s what happened…

Tanya Piper “You will see from James work that he is extremely talented. He is very professional and listens to what you want. He made us both feel at ease and we very quickly forgot that he was there as he disappeared in to the background and beautifully captured our wedding day. He has eyes in the back of his head and didn’t miss a moment. We are over the moon with the pictures. If you are looking for your wedding photographer, look no further!

Lots of love Tanya and Rob x”
