Blackstock Wedding | Debbie Sanderson Wedding Photography

Liam and Natasha

We met this lovely family while at a wedding fayre at Hersmonseux Castle two years ago. They approached our stand, we hit if off straight away and could tell what a bubbly family they were, full of fun. We were delighted when they booked us for their big day. I think poor old Dad had been taken to many wedding fayre’s and shows and was probably relieved to have another supplier ticked of his list…lol.

This is the second time that Debbie Sanderson Wedding Photography have photographed a wedding at Blackstock Barn. Set in the rolling country side of the South Downs with elegantly refurbished 16th Century Barn, offering 70 acres of wedding photo opportunities; including gardens, lakes, meadows and amazing bluebell woodland. It’s a charming venue to work at with lots of areas to get creative in.

Natasha got ready at her parents house and travelled in style to Blackstock in a beautiful vintage car. This wedding was going to delight the guests with many special surprises. The ring was to be carried to the couple by a beautiful barn owl. The owner informed us that we could use no flash, as it could frighten the little fella. Getting this shot was to be tricky as I had no room for a tripod and had to shoot on a relatively low shutter speed as the room was dark. It’s not a brilliant shot but at least we can see him, he really was gorgeous, although he did drop the ring. There were also other birds of prey for the guest to see and hold.

After the service the sun came out, another event was the release of some rather dopey butterflies who when released from the box are meant to fly away. Unfortunately as it was a fairly cold day so they preferred to stay on Natasha’s dress. Although this didn’t have the desired effect it gave a little something extra to our pictures as they stayed on there for the romantic photographs in the woods.

We stayed until the first dance and left this lovely family to enjoy themselves. These are just a few of the pictures from the day.
