The sun sets on a Newick Park wedding

I had the privilege of photographing the last ever wedding at Newick Park Hotel, near my home in East Sussex, just after Christmas.

Following a ceremony at Ditchling church, bride and groom Carolyne and Mike put on a suitably unforgettable wedding reception, with a Chinese tea ceremony, and a dog in a tux, and lashings of transatlantic warmth.

I’ll miss working at Newick Park, which always felt like being welcomed into someone’s home (albeit it a huge one with its own lake!). I wish it good luck in its new adventures, whatever they may be.
