Jane & Dan // The George In Rye Wedding

The 2015 season kicked off in dramatic style on the south coast with the wedding at The George In Rye of Jane and Dan. I think Jane might just win the prize as my most hardcore bride ever. The plan for the portraits was to hit the beach where Dan had scouted a few locations. The weather was cold but manageable, a little blustery but with nothing too worrying forecast so it’s fair to say we were well and truly caught off guard when a full on sleet squall hit us at out furthest point, some ten minutes from the car and without cover. As it was I thought Jane was brave taking on what was a fairly ambitious portrait shoot on a January day when the mercury was at about freezing, but hitting what the elements threw at us head on as she did, raised her to bride ninja status!  Fair play indeed! If you’ve never been to Rye it’s a must visit if you’re ever in Sussex – as pretty a medieval seaside town as you’ll see and a fittingly beautiful setting for what was a fantastic wedding to start the year. Huge congrats to Jane and Dan! Here’s a couple of previews…
