Post wedding sessions are more common than you'd think; with all of our busy lives, sometimes it is not easy to schedule a pre-wedding photo shoot. And with me, Benni, living in Hastings, and very close to London, and Carolina now living in Florence, our options for a post-wedding session have considerably expanded! This time we happened to be in Hastings.
Martina and Alessandro got married last year in Venice; living in London, they had a fantastic destination wedding in the Venice lagoon and we were lucky enough to having been chosen as their destination wedding photographers for their wedding in Italy. We weren't able to arrange a pre-wedding session, so here we are, having a post-wedding photo shoot on the shores of Hastings.
Now, I guess it is really no secret that I have recently moved to Hastings: it's been all over our socials for the last few months! :D
I have to confess that leaving London has been kind of tough: our story started there, I still remember our first enquiry, our very first wedding, our very first photo shoot... We had many "firsts" there as you might well imagine. Nevertheless, I am looking forward to seeing what Hastings is holding for me.
Surely, it is just like a gift for me to be able to live a few (very very steep) steps away from the West Hill, with its incredible fresh air and its stunning view of the sea, and I couldn't wait to have a photo shoot around there. From there, you can walk down the hill towards the Old Town and in a few minutes you'll find yourself on Rock-a-Nore beach, another Hasting's little jewel, especially at the late hours of the day. My newly adopted town is also super close to the Seven Sisters country park, with its terrific white cliffs and its wild open fields (I just shot a pre-wedding session there and I literally cannot wait to share the photos, I am so pleased with them and this happens very rarely!! :) ...and of course London is always just a stone throw away from here.
I leave you now to Martina&Alessandro's beautiful photo session on the West Hill and Rock-a-Nore beach, Hastings, I'd love to hear your feedback on this!
