Weekend Escape To Hurstpierpoint,West Sussex

A beautiful house in Hurstpierpoint

Last weekend me and my partner Ivan decided to visit a little town close by to where we live and to sink into its atmosphere.I have passed through it on the bus to Brighton and have imagined walking on its streets and photographing the interesting architecture.So the time to make this happening has come :0)

The village is called Hurstpierpoint and it is located in West Sussex.It is within easy reach from A23 and also there is regular bus service to Brighton stopping there.

The village is chiefly one long street running east and west and most of the buildings in it are of the 18th century or later.

Unfortunately on Sunday most of the shops and coffee shops were closed ,so avoid this day of the week if you would like to have abroader choice of locals.Anyway I could not resist photographing the interior of this coffee shop thorugh the windon,because of the sign which made me laugh.Have a good look at it and try to read what it says ;so true these days when most of the people use their smart phones to talk to each other:0)

‘No we don’t have wi-fi-talk to each other’

If you know me you would have noticed that I love photographing doors (I know many people who actually do ).Here are couple that have captured my attention while visiting Hurstpierpoint.

Travelling during a cold day has got its advantages-we always look for a nice,cosy ,local pub or restaurant with fireplace.TheNew Inn was our choice in Hurstpierpoint,where I enjoyed a lovely pot of tea with a hosemade bread pudding in custard close to the warm fireplace :0)

Our walk then continued on the main street and I enjoyed capturing few more beautiful houses’ facades …

We are are usually in search of far away places thinking they will be different and more interesting ,but apparently there are hidden gems just a short drive from our walk.We just need to be more specific of what we are looking for nd keep our mind open :0)

Boutique Wedding At The Historic Elizabethan Hotel ‘Langshott Manor’

Wedding Venue in Surrey -Langshott Manor

In June 2018 I had the pleasure and honor to photograph the beauiful boutique wedding of Dave and Jo at the Histori Elizabethan Hotel ‘Langshott Manor’, which is located literally behind the corner from my home in Langshott, Horley, Surrey :0).The couple has hired the whole property for the weekend and accommodated the family so that everyone feels comfortable and close to the happy Bride and Groom ,sharing their special time!Check out the webiste of this gorgeous hotel and wedding venue ,beautifully tucked away in the heart of Surrey-https://www.alexanderhotels.co.uk/langshott-manor/

Bride Preparation

The bride preparation is usually where I start photographing the day from.Jo was absolutely gorgeous and thrilled to meet her Groom in short time.During this time I could enjoy taking some photos of the rings, jewellery, the wedding shoes as well as the wedding dress.For this purpose I am using a dedicated Nikon Macro Lens which captures every detail in 1:1ratio and produces stunning photos.

The Wedding Rings

The Bride On Her Way To Meet The Groom

The Happy Couple -First Look

The moment when the Groom sees his most beautiful Bride is something I aim always to capture.It very much depends on the size of the room and the Registrar restrictions of where the photographer can stand and move (if they can move at all).It is a moment full of emotions and smiles, so it is worth the effort …

Signing the Register

Cocktail Hour and Congratulations to the happy new weds.This is time when I cannot stop taking beautiful photos, smiles, happiness and lots of positive vibes- and yes all these are in the photos to be treasured forever.My style is relaxed and natural and I am using exclusively branded Nikon equipment, which delivers excellent results without a failure.

Group Photo

There is time set for the group photos of course – it proves to be a challenging time for me – the photographer -but I usually have someone from the close family to help with gathering the people.I make sure we discuss the possibility of the big group shot before the wedding as we need an elevated terrain or a window I can go to so that everyone can be in the frame and in focus.

Bride & Groom Portraiture

Bride &Groom Portraiture is favorite time of the day for me as Photographer – all the beauty of the day in two people who are spreading love !I absolutely love it.

Bride & Groom Portraiture

As owner and wedding photographer at Truly Natural Photography I am commited to maintain high standards of the service and product I offer – Truly Natural Photography is featured by The Wedding Supplier Group UK, Bridebook,B2B,Wedding Wire and Poptop.

Wedding Speeches

The time for the speeches is when emotions are running high.There are some happy tears , hugs ,many precious memories to be shared …I love this moments too and I am absolutely concentrated to capture as many as possible.

And of course the time to celebrate in full dance swing.

Lanzarote Part I

The island of Lanzarote is about 4 hours flight time from the UK .Most of the low cost airlines like Jet2, Norwegian, Thomson Airways,Easyjet and Monarch have regular flights at least once a week or every day during the high season.This is one of the most peaceful holiday places suitable for relaxation,surfing and re-connection with your inner self.

Matagorda is the closest resort to the airport and main city Arecife.I personally recommend this resort as it is secluded and not as windy as Playa Blanca.It is popular with the kilometers long promenade suitable for walking and cycling.The hotels’ infrastructure on the island is new and controlled development means that the vast bulk of the island remains as Mother Nature intended.That is to say beautiful and unspoiled.©Truly Natural Photography

The Canaries have warm and sunny weather all year round with temperatures rarely under 16C in Winter and 25C in Summer.This is partly due to their closeness to northern Africa,making them one of the sunniest places on the planet©Truly Natural Photography
