Victoria and Alan’s recent wedding at the Arora Hotel in Crawley, West Sussex was very much a family affair – with their son being a big part of their day.

So we started with all girls together (plus father of the bride) getting ready and there was plenty of giggles in between all the preparations, including a certain amount of trepidation as to whether a bridesmaid dress that had recently been repaired was going to zip up.  It zipped up fine but it added a kind of fun element of jeopardy to the proceedings! Then we moved onto the Arora Hotel for the ceremony and reception – the sun came out and everyone got to enjoy the modern but comfortable surroundings.

We used both the lobby and the courtyard for photos both of which offer plenty of spaces for large groups where required.
