Whether you’re eloping in Sussex, looking to escape to have some time by yourselves on your wedding day or you’d like to get back into your bridal outifts a few days after the wedding to get some magical photos, these places will make incredible backdrops.

Birling Gap – I never get tired of photographing couples with the white cliffs of Seven Sisters and I love creating somethign unqiue each time. The easy access means you can easily plan to stop here for photos on your wedding day!

West Wittering Beach – What could be more romantic then some wedding photos on the beach at sunset? This spot in West Sussex and if you’re a toes in the water type of couple, you’ll love it.

Camber Sands – Another option for romantic coastal wedding photos just East of Sussex. If you’re getting married in East Sussex or Rye, you could make a quick sopt by the beach.

Lewes – If you’d like a more luxury, historic feel to your wedding photos, why not plan some time to walk around Lewes? There are may other enchanting English towns in Sussex that would also make for great, relaxed wedding photos.
