Blackstock Farm Wedding Photography

As a busy and popular wedding photographer; sometimes it’s nice to just shoot images for the thrill of it and that’s exactly what happened this week.

Me and a few other creative professionals took a little time out to visit the magical Blackstock Country Estate near Hellingly, East Sussex. It’s a beautiful venue in itself, with 70 acres of estate it’s certainly the perfect backdrop for a wedding shoot like this…the perfect location for a wedding photographer to hone their craft.

Everything for the day was kindly given by other generous Sussex suppliers in return for just a few images of their products and exposure. I love to see professionals networking in this way and helping to build each others ‘brand’.

The great thing is, when it’s not a real wedding day like this, you have all the time in the world to try more poses, outfits and camera techniques…nothing like the real thing where, if you are lucky; you’ve 15 minutes to nail the shot of their dreams or you’re a complete failure as a photographer and you may as well go home!

So without all that stress and pressure of the big day, we set-up and got our models into hair and make-up…

All in all we had a fantastic day even though it was a little chilly. It’s a lovely venue to shoot at and a lot of our models were hoping to get some lovely shots from a pro wedding photographer without having to pay for another photoshoot. The best part for me was that this beautiful venue is just down the road for me.
