I first met Sabrina & Jon last September at the Coal Exchange in Emsworth. Once they had told me about their plans I knew this wedding was going to be very special! We spent a good couple of hours chatting about all of the details for the big day and sharing travelling stories.
Earlier this month we meet up for the pre-wedding shoot which was great. They were both very easy going and very relaxed and I even had the chance to meet Sabrina’s parents for a quick drink afterwards. The wedding itself was perfect; I couldn’t have asked for anything better. The venue is right beside the beach and has a lovely spit once the tide goes out. Sabrina and Jon got married at midday and then had another ceremony shortly after held by Robb, one of Sabrina best friends. From mermaid gin to sky lanterns this wedding had it all, not forgetting the fantastic wedding cake including seaweed from Tankerton Beach which was put together by Ben, Sabrina’s brother.
Shortly after fish and chips we had the speeches then the evening celebrations started with The Live Lounge Project performing. I was kindly offered a bed for the evening and managed to enjoy some of the evening party with some new friends. All of the guests were so welcoming it felt like I had known some of them for years. I’ve got so many amazing memories from the day. Thanks again Sabrina and Jon for letting my sharing your special day with you. Please find a few photos from the day below.
Jonathan Dear “When we were researching photographers for our wedding we came across James, and after looking through his photos we were really impressed with his style and were over the moon to find out he was available on our date.
We booked him straight away and from the first contact he was quick at replying and always friendly and professional.
We met up with him for a drink so we could break the ice, go over some questions we had and run some ideas we had past time. We were chatting for hours about the wedding and also ended up sharing travelling stories.
A month or so before our big day we had our pre-wedding shoot. Sabrina and I weren’t sure what to expect from the day and were worried that it would be too cheesy but it was actually really good fun and got some amazing photos from the day we will treasure.
On our wedding day James turned up early and throughout the day and night James was smiling and made sure he was there capturing every special moment without getting his camera in the way of the moments.
So many of our guests commented on how lovely James was and how it felt like he was part of the family rather than a stranger we had hired because he was so friendly and made an effort with everyone.
James directed everyone politely and efficiently during the formal photographs and made such an effort all day to make sure everything was done as we asked.
We were able to offer James a room in our venue for the night so after he had finished taking photos all night he accepted our invitation to join us for a few drinks where we got to enjoy his company before we all called it a night.
The photos were sent to us much faster than we expected and we were blown away by the amount of photos James had taken! We absolutely were overjoyed by the quality of the photos and by all the memories he managed to capture!
I am so happy that we chose James as our photographer. The photos were beyond amazing and I’m honoured to say that we’ve made a friend in James and have met up with him since.
James is an absolute professional who clearly takes great pride in his work and I will recommend him has a photographer to anyone who needs one.
Thanks so so much James mate we will forever be so glad we chose you”
