St Marys Bramber
A couple of weeks ago I was privileged to be present and photographer for the Wedding of Helen and Oli at St Mary’s Bramber.
This simply stunning house and gardens is a sight to behold. The original features of the building, the gorgeous topiary, gardens and conservatory areas make this a photographers dream.
The day was doubly special as it was also the time of the Royal Wedding so this factor added to the ambiance and general feeling of the things.
I started at Helens for bridal preparations, small detail capture and some individual portraits and then I left for St Marys Bramber.
St Marys Bramber – Inside
The main ceremony area in St Marys Bramber is quite large and well featured. On the day there was a large piano and a semi circle of seating. The whole area was backlit by the conservatory. This is where Helen entered the room and left with Oliver after the ceremony.
The walls are pale blue with a white ceiling. A far cry from the red and orange walls found in many a wedding venue.
Other than the main ceremony area every extra room is different and of genuine interest to anyone there. Every member of staff, including the lady of the house are wonderful to deal with and will always help when and where they can.
St Marys Bramber – afterwards
After the ceremony we all went into the garden for a selection of formal photos which were easy to do as everyone was in one place and then Helen, Oli and myself went off to take advantage of the gardens.
We then left St Marys Bramber and went to the Anchor Inn Barcombe for the wedding breakfast and evening reception. I’ll cover The Anchor Inn on another blog post as it’s another great place which requires it’s own page!
Another thing worth a mention, the flowers were provided by Pollen.co.uk who, as always, deliver the most amazing flowers.

I full recommend considering St Marys Bramber as a wedding venue, it’s a lovely place!
