Comments from Paul Martin:
Battle Abbey School occupies one of the most remarkable buildings in Britain. William the Conqueror built the original church on the site after he defeated King Harold at the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The Abbey church is now in ruins, but the Abbot’s House remains, which currently houses the school. Weddings may be held in the magnificent thirteenth century Abbot’s Hall, which is characterised by high pitched wooden beam ceiling. The cost of a wedding and ceremony at Battle Abbey School is £3,300, to include the exclusive use of the Abbot’s Hall, Duke’s Library, Refectory and school grounds.

I enjoyed the unique opportunity of photographing a wedding at this amazing venue in the autumn of 2003. The highlights for me were: Abbotts Hall (where the civil marriage took place), the refectory, the surrounding gardens with views overlooking the sussex countryside, the old Abbey ruins, and two men from the castle in period costume, who added alot of spice to my creative bride & groom portraits!. My coverage was a mixture of spontaneous/ informal sequences, along with many creative shots, all which served to provide a ‘moving’ visual commentary, and a vivid reminder of a truly unique wedding day. Best of all, I have a complete portfolio of photographs of this Battle Abbey School wedding.

Although a London based photographer, I am able and willing to travel to this truly amazing and inspirational venue at Battle Abbey.
