This is a selection of images from Debbie and Alex’s recent wedding at Gildredge Manor in Eastbourne. It was an amazing day with 14 hours of coverage that allowed for 1375(!) fully edited images to be supplied to the bride and groom. In addition to this, and by special request from the bride, 40 images were edited the following morning to be released and posted on FaceBook! I received well over 100 individual posted compliments on social media from the congregation and other members of their family and friends. The bride and groom liked so many of the images (infact all of the them!) that they increased their order from 1 photo book to 3 so they could fit more in!

 


Here is their review:

Debbie & Alex ★★★★★ “Alex and I are both in the entertainment industry and are very used to having creative control over EVERYTHING we do! – so handing that control over was something we thought long and hard about. We chose John as our photographer, having seen some of his previous wedding photography and also having met him through our business. From the very start of our conversations about our plans, he was extremely accommodating, listened to all our strange requests and never once told us he couldn’t do anything we wanted. We are such busy people and we really needed to know that there would be nothing to worry about on the day. We chatted at length about what we did (and didn’t) want! We filled out the information form for the day and handed it all over to him. With quite an unconventional family set up there were photographs we wanted to have taken, some we needed to have taken and loads we didn’t realise we wanted or needed! From the very first moment of John meeting Alex at his parents house on the morning of the wedding, he put them all at ease and in the process captured some lovely moments. With myself and my bridesmaids he was there as we all got ready through hair and make-up – never intrusive but always snapping away. HIs easy-going and friendly attitude really helped to quell my nerves and the moments he captured between myself and my father are particularly lovely. Throughout the ceremony we were both so wrapped up in what was going on that we barely noticed he was there. Following the ceremony we spent some time out and about in the grounds of Gildredge Park….this has to be one of my favourite moments of our day. We felt relaxed, excited, elated and totally at ease – all rolled into one! It was so much fun, strolling around without a care in the world and whilst we felt it was all totally natural, John clearly had a very detailed plan in his head as to what he wanted to create and capture. Some of these photos are my absolute favourites. The reception followed, the speeches and then on to the cutting of the cake and the evening reception. John was there for it all – never getting in the way but remaining completely involved. We received a set of 40 photographs in a Facebook album the following day – we had asked all our guests to refrain from posting on social media for 3 days and wanted the first shots our special day to be Johns. We were not disappointed and the reaction was amazing. Now, just three weeks later we have seen the entire 1375 photographs. Words cannot express our delight at what John has produced for us. What he has managed to capture within his photographs is truly outstanding. We didn’t employ anyone to take a video – who needs that when you have John? – the photographs tell an immaculate story of our entire day. Every emotion, look, touch and sound can be felt through his pictures. Having seen them all neither of us could quite put into words at the time what they mean to us. So, here goes Mr Scofield – yes, we got everything we wanted from our wedding photographs but we got SO much more! (I am getting emotional writing this now) The memories of our day have been captured for us, our families and especially our two young children and we know that our albums will become treasured possessions for years to come. Thank you John, for making it all seem so effortless, for making us look so amazing AND most of all for being an amazing friend throughout it all. Maybe handing over creative control isn’t that bad after all eh?”
