Claire and Paul’s elegant and stylish Surrey wedding with Sophie Duckworth Photography

Claire and Paul are the loveliest couple – I think every wedding photo shows at least one of them with an amazing happy smile – and theirs is the sort of wedding I just love to bits.

They describe their Surrey wedding as ‘less fuss, more fun’ and their motto clearly worked like a charm! They celebrated in style at Painshill Park and hired lovely Sophie Duckworth as their wedding photographer.
