South Downs Manor Wedding Photographer - Lizzy and Mark

June 21, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Southdowns Manor is an exclusive wedding venue hidden away in the heart of the South Downs National Park. It is secluded away from main roads making it an ideal wedding venue for Lizzy and Mark who used the danced their way through their whole wedding day!

Lizzy and Mark used Southdowns Manor to it's full capacity and everything was just perfect for them and their guests. As a photographer my work was cut out and as always I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Mark and Lizzy are both very keen dancers and told me there might be a lot of dancing! I didn't expect quite so much but the dance floor was full all night! I'd love to show you them all, perhaps another individual blog post is due but I have included lots in this brief story of their day.

Rather than just photos of the bride and groom I've shared moments with guests too; all the elements that makes up the wedding day story. Mark and Lizzys day was a really good fun wedding and the days highlights are here for you to see.
And not just one first dance after the meal; there were loads of them and all day too!

On arrival everyone had their fingers crossed for the morning clouds to clear (spoiler alert; they did!)
