Alison and John could not have picked a more perfect spring day for their wedding, the first weekend in April was glorious; sunshine, blue skies and a little bit of warmth in the air! The ceremony was at the stunning Trinity Church Sutton. As wedding photographers we always hope for a Church, even in London, with a picturesque traditional feel to it. Sitting in the heart of Sutton and with it’s ancient stonework and tall bell tower Trinity Church gave us that!
Their reception was at Reigate Hill Golf Club. A sprawling golf course that just touches the edge of the breathtaking North Downs. The weather was glorious all afternoon until just as we were taking the last of the family photos when it started to rain. Alison and John were troopers though and despite all their guests disappearing into the shelter of the bar they were determined to persevere with their couple’s shoot. I’m so glad they did as we got some gorgeous shots! Alison as a former dancer was so graceful in front of the camera.
There’a little bit of a story behind Alison and John’s wedding… They were referred to us by mutual friends but Ally actually worked with John 16 years earlier. She hired him as a weekend sales assistant in her previous retail career. Not long after Ally moved on to pursue her photography dreams, Alison starting working in the same store. Can Ally take any credit in bringing the two of them together? I mean, if she hadn’t hired John when he was a teenager would he and Alison have met?
A truly wonderful day! Alison and John, congratulations on your marriage, thank you for letting us share a part of your special day!

Alison had her sister and three closest girlfriends help her get ready, the room was a sea of calmness. Absolutely love the grandeur of Trinity Church in Sutton. The traditional stonework of Trinity Church in Sutton made a fabulous backdrop for photos! Alison’s gorgeous bouquet was by House of FlowersYou would never tell that it was raining here! Alison and John were complete stars for persevering when the drizzle started! The reception room was beautifully decorated in the wedding colours. All good weddings finish with a party!
