Best wedding photographs of 2016

Best wedding photography of 2016, by Surrey wedding photographer Sarah Legge – Oh my, what a fantastic year it’s been! There have been so many special moments – fathers moved to tears by the sight of their beautiful daughter in her wedding dress, a dog as page boy, a groom thrown high into the air during spectacular Israeli dancing, a bride whose veil nearly flew away into the Thames whilst crossing Tower Bridge in an open top London bus, 4 weddings in a row at the magnificent Micklefield Hall, a bride who wore three different wedding dresses (not at once),

Hertfordshire Wedding Photographer – Clare & Rich’s village wedding

Hertfordshire Wedding Photographer – Sarratt is a really picturesque village in Hertfordshire (near the Buckinghamshire border) which I know of because the lovely Micklefield Hall wedding venue is just outside the village. I’d never actually been into Sarratt before, and I was very happy to be there for Rich and Clare’s big day – it’s SUCH a pretty place! When I arrived Clare was getting ready in the super cute cottage she shares with her husband. I was a bit (well, a lot) star struck on arrival – Clare’s full name is Clare Halse and she’s the star of the

Old Luxters Barn Wedding Photography – Lucy and Steve’s family wedding

Old Luxters Barn Wedding Photography – Lucy and Steve are a lovely, happy and laidback couple, and their wedding was all of these things. They have very sweet 5 year old twin daughters and I’ll say up front that I’m sorry if the girls feature in too many photos…but aren’t they just the cutest things?! I joined Lucy and the girls as they got ready at the Compleat Angler in Marlow (SUCH a pretty town!), and immediately felt at ease – the vibe was impressively relaxed (something which isn’t normally the case when the bride has little children!). We then drove

Botleys Mansion Wedding Photography – Emma & Patrick’s Surrey stately home wedding

Botleys Mansion Wedding Photography – Botleys Mansion is one of the Bijou wedding venues  and it is absolutely beautiful! It’s a Palladian country house (or so it says on their website!) in Surrey, just outside Chertsey, which, happily, makes it about 15 mins down the road from me…I love a short commute! I joined Emma and her bridesmaids and family at her parents’ house a few hours before the ceremony to capture some of the getting ready excitement, before the girls moved to the stunning Botleys bridal suite (with a handy hook for the wedding dress – it’s teeny touches like

Millbridge Court Wedding Photography – Fran & Alex’s stunning Surrey wedding

Millbridge Court Wedding Photography – Oh my, now this is a pretty wedding! I’m lucky enough to be one of Millbridge Court’s recommended wedding photographers, so I regularly shoot there, and every time I do I love it even more! Fran and Alex had a stunning July wedding and we were blessed with some some beautiful weather. They tied the knot outside in the sunshine, which, even in July, is pretty lucky in England! The two families are lovely and warm, and I felt very welcome. There were some particularly touching speeches after the wedding breakfast – I don’t think

Surrey Wedding Photographer – Sarah & Stuart’s garden festival wedding

Surrey Wedding Photographer – Wow! Now this was a beautiful wedding! Sarah and Stuart got married in All Saints Church, the sweet church in Tilford (near Farnham, Surrey) a few moments down the road from Sarah’s family’s farm. To get there from the farm you wander over the river and turn left at the cricket green just before the village pub…and yes, it all is as picturesque as it sounds! After the personal ceremony (the vicar is a family friend) the couple were greeted by a lot of enthusiastic confetti throwing. The guests then walked back to the farm for

Bartholomew Barn Wedding Photography – Rob & Jen’s sunny Sussex wedding

Bartholomew Barn Wedding Photography – Wow, what a scorcher! Jen and Rob got married on one of the hottest days of the year, and they had the most glorious English country wedding you can imagine. They got married at Bartholomew Barn, which is one of my favourite wedding barns (run by the most lovely lady), nestled in beautiful Sussex Downs near Petworth. I’ve worked at the barn lots of times before, but I’ve never seen an outdoor wedding ceremony there, so I was delighted to see it all set up for Jen and Rob to tie the knot outside. Well

Hertfordshire Wedding Photographer – Louise & George’s Micklefield Hall wedding

Hertfordshire Wedding Photographer – Hooray, hoorah – another Micklefield Hall wedding! Keen readers of this blog (if there are any!) will know that Micklefield Hall is one of my absolute favourite wedding venues. It’s a countryhouse wedding venue in Hertfordshire, surprisingly close to London. The staff are delightful, the scenery is perfect and the sun always seems to shine! I joined Louise at the house where she was getting ready – there was a lot of excitement in the air, and lots of super cute flower girls running around. I was delighted when I saw Louise’s incredible gown – a

Farnham Family Photographer – Hello Oliver!

Farnham Family Photographer – I photographed Avril and Andy’s beautiful Farnham Castle wedding a few years ago, and I was delighted when they asked me back to photograph their growing family! It was a joy to meet little Oliver, who had a lot of fun playing with some bubbles in the garden. Love Sarah xx Sarah Legge Photography – Surrey wedding and family photographer taking beautiful, natural photographs of happy people throughout Surrey and beyond

Richmond Park Engagement Photography – Emma and Patrick in the Isabella Plantation

Richmond Park Photography – I’m photographing Emma and Patrick’s wedding at Botley’s Mansion in a few weeks (here’s the last Botley’s Mansion wedding I photographed – what a stunning venue!) and they were keen on having a pre-wedding/engagement shoot to get used to being in front of the camera. I was, of course, delighted to oblige! We went to my favourite spot for engagement photographs – Isabella Plantation in Richmond Park. We were due to meet up a week earlier but had to postpone because of torrential rain…what a good call as we were lucky to get some beautiful ‘golden
