A French Vintage Wedding by Sarah Critchlow

Following a grand proposal in Las Vegas, Tamsin and Craig chose Premier Portfolio member Sarah Critchlow to capture their special day. With a gorgeous French Vintage theme, the couple were joined by their family and friends to celebrate at the stunning Buxted Park in Sussex.

Photographer Sarah told us, "I arrived at Tasmin's parents' house in the morning and it was buzzing with excitement. Tasmin was having her hair and makeup done whilst the bridesmaids were busy in the other rooms, getting ready for the day ahead. As Tasmin was nearly ready to get into her dress, all the girls gathered for champagne. The excitement continued throughout the day and as the sun shone brightly all afternoon, the guests enjoyed a relaxed drinks reception on the lawns at the wonderful Buxted Park hotel. What I recall the most from Tasmin and Craig's day was the attention to detail - I have never seen so many special touches which Tasmin and her family had applied around the hotel venue and this continued into the evening entertainment with a big box of fancy dress accessories available for guests to wear and then have their photograph taken on Tasmin's own camera."

Champagne and Gold at Lord Ashbrook's Arley Hall Estate

Arley Hall has to be one of my favourite Cheshire wedding venues, set in the heart of the lush, Cheshire countryside. As a local myself, I have spent many sunny afternoons enjoying the delights of the historic Arley estate, the home of the charming Lord Ashbrook. It is of no wonder that Emma and Tom fell in love with it’s splendour.
