As a Sussex boy born and bred, any wedding in this part of the world is particularly special for me. The day started off with the groom in my home town of Newhaven, just a few hundred metres from where I grew up before covering Becky’s preparations at her parents’ house nearby.

Buxted Park Hotel in Sussex provides a stunning backdrop to any wedding and we were blessed with perfect August sunshine for an outdoor wedding on the lawn.

Bridal transport was provided by Paladins Classic Cars who have the most beautiful selection of vintage motors. Post ceremony we managed to slip away from the reception for half an hour and head out into the Sussex countryside in a 1953 Bentley.

After some emotional speeches and a big feed, we took some time out to explore the hotel and its beautiful grounds and, for good measure, threw in a few less photographed areas of the hotel. As the sun finally began to drop the Sussex group South Coast Soul provided a great soundtrack to the first dance and party.

This wedding was featured by Your Sussex Magazine in a four page article in their August / September 2015 issue.



“So it was around this time last year that i asked for help to find a photographer for our wedding. Luckily I have great friends and one of them pointed me in the direction of Richard Murgatroyd.

From the word go he was professional and so easy to talk to. He made me and Gavin feel comfortable and reassured all throughout our wedding day. Most of the time you wouldn’t have even known he was there!

We were sitting on the edge of our seat waiting for the photos to be sent and when they were we absolutely loved them. Richard captured the whole day step by step but in such a natural way.

He really has done such an amazing job.

We have recommended him to a few of our friends and family already because we were so impressed. The way I see it you really can’t mess around with searching for the right photographer. Photos are a life-long gift that shouldn’t be gambled on what the price is. After all you really can’t put a price on a photo.

Richard was genuine and honest and very talented and that is all you need.

Richard we really can’t thank you enough! Much love, Becky and Gavin”
