Simonne & Chris’ Wotton House Wedding ~ I’ve been a Surrey wedding photographer for over 6 years now, and Wotton House is one of those famous Surrey wedding venues that I’ve always wanted to work but never had the opportunity. It’s a lovely luxury country house just outside Dorking and is a great setting for a wedding. So, when Chris and Simonne asked me to be their wedding photographer I was delighted I was going to make my Wotton House debut!
I started my day with a quick stop at The White Horse pub/hotel in Dorking where Chris was getting ready. I don’t often get to photograph the groom’s prep so it was fun to get time with him and his ushers – there was a lot of banter and Chris was impressively relaxed! I then shot off down the road to Wotton House to see Simonne and her girls getting ready. Needless to say, Simonne looked absolutely gorgeous.
The ceremony was beautiful (and emotional…which meant that it was ANOTHER wedding where I cried…must stop doing that!). Afterwards we rushed outside for the group photographs – it was a slightly chilly day so thank you to everyone for braving the cold (group photographs are almost always better outside in natural light where possible).
Wotton House has recently upgraded it’s wedding breakfast room and it was looking amazing – all sparkly and new (you could almost – not quite luckily! – smell the fresh paint). The food was delicious and all the guests had a thoroughly good time. I’ve got a couple more Wotton House weddings booked in and I’m excited about going back already. Congratulations Chris and Simonne for a wonderful day!
Update – Simonne just sent me the most lovely email: “Thank you for sending to us the USB stick with all of our photos!! How beautiful is the box that it comes in?! The photos are beautiful and exactly what we wanted! You did an incredible job and we’re so grateful, everyone has commented on how lovely the photos are!” Awww, makes me one happy wedding photographer to get emails like this!
Love Sarah xx
