St Mary Magalene Church Rusper

Emma & David - Upwaltham Barns

The A283 and the A285 that run down through Petworth and on to Chichester are some of my favourite driving roads in the entire world. The landscape is simply breathtaking, with rolling hills, sweeping views and the sense of being in a valley that’s somehow shielded from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the South East. In short, it’s a stunning bit of England. When I met Emma & David last year and they told me they were getting married at Upwaltham Barns near Petworth I was pretty excited. I wasn’t familiar with the venue, but the setting is so beautiful that I knew I was in for a treat.

Emma & David’s day included a fair bit of rain but, thanks to ingenious eBaying on Emma’s part, there was a considerable quantity of umbrellas to go around. Their wedding ceremony took place at St Mary Magdalene Church in Rusper, another location that is astonishingly idyllic - talk about a beautiful church! Afterwards, we jumped in the cars and made our way over to Upwaltham, stopping at the Duncton viewpoint for a couple of photographs on the way.

David’s speech was one of the most moving I’ve heard in a long while and fantastically delivered too. It had Emma welling up despite herself and it felt pretty special to be in the same room, capturing it as it all played out. Following speeches, the three of us stepped away for some creative portraits. With the weather finally breaking we had a great time in the walled garden and although Emma & David had warned me that they weren’t comfortable in front of the camera they certainly looked it! They’re a fantastic couple and I really enjoyed working with them. Also, Emma has the most flawless skin of just about any bride I’ve ever photographed! A ‘tog’s dream!

Anyway, as ever, a selection of my favourites. Thanks to Emma & David for choosing me as their photographer and let’s all collectively keep our fingers crossed that it doesn’t keep raining till Christmas!
