post Sad news :@(
After 18 years and over 1000 weddings across the UK and abroad, It is with regret, sorrow, much soul searching and pain that we are forced to close Lime Green Photography Ltd t/a Zest photography down with immediate effect.
The struggles of Covid took their toll on a lot of businesses, both large and small, during the Pandemic and, despite holding out as long as we could, we can no longer carry on. Our bankers have withdrawn support and we have not been able to take new bookings moving forward. We are both exhausted, depressed, broke and ashamed and hope that all of our couples understand how difficult this decision has been for us.
Any couples with images outstanding – we will do our utmost to get these to you. Our Zenfolio portal for image sharing has been taken down and so images stored will no longer be available. If anyone wishes a copy of their images then we would ask that you email us at the usual email address requesting a set – you will be asked to send in a 16mb or higher USB stick onto which your images will be saved for you. We will only be able to do this fup until the 15th June 2022 though.
Couples with outstanding albums, deposits and those that may be owed refunds will be added to a list of creditors. As the business has no cash or assets we have had to apply for Voluntary strike off with Companies House, a copy of the formal notice for which is shown here.
We wish to thank all of our wonderful couples for allowing us to capture their memories and to fill our own with beautiful moments that we will treasure forever.

Your beautiful moments captured…naturally

Hi and, firstly, congratulations on your engagement!  We love a wedding and we love being one of the longest established Sussex Wedding Photographers! You are now undertaking one of the most exciting, fun, challenging and probably costly events that you are likely to go through as a couple.  Your wedding photographs will be remembered for many years after the event and can serve as a great excuse for you both to cuddle up and relive your day. As a Husband and Wife photography team we understand this and absolutely love being part of a couples wedding day. Your wedding is not just a day – it is a series of days, experiences and , most importantly, special moments.  We have been capturing special moments for newlyweds since 2004 and have seen many different styles, venues weather challenges and delightful smiling faces along the way. 

We photograph weddings from our base in Sussex using high resolution Nikon kit and are one of the only true ‘low light’ specialists in the UK.  This means that churches, barns, winter and dimly lit venues are our playground!   

For your natural wedding photographers in Sussex, Surrey, Hampshire or anywhere in the UK then why not get in touch and let’s chat.

Getting married abroad? We also cover destination weddings overseas for less than you might think!

Your wedding  photography will be captured as moments happen with little to no posing at all.  We want you to feel relaxed…that’s the best way to show you at your best!

Finding the right light, the best backdrop and the perfect angle – added to the raw emotion of the moment – we create stunning images to treasure.

We’re always looking for the shots that will push the boundaries.  Not the same old, same old but new, different and without equal

Hubby and Wife team based in Sussex and travelling the UK and farther afield for destination weddings.

We have been full-time pros since we married in 2005 and have shot over 800 weddings to date.

Some people ask us how we have managed to stay so dedicated to being simply Wedding Photographers…

our answer……

…because we LOVE IT.  Every wedding that we shoot takes us back to our own Big Day and we simply enjoy seeing and shooting so many happy, precious, beautiful moments.  The day flies by and we can’t wait to get back and take a look and see what we’ve captured.  Tears often flow here in the office when we relive those precious moments again whilst we’re ‘Wediting’ the shots!


Happy people.  Beautiful clothes.  Tasty food.  Wonderful memories.  New beginnings.  True love.  What is there NOT to enjoy – it really is the best job in the world!!!


Every package that we offer allows for a practice pre wedding/engagement shoot, 2 Photographers, full days coverage, fully ‘Wedited’ images and an album option.


We also offer a Save the Date shoot and a Rock the Frock shoot.

Plus we have videography and our own Bridal Shop – that’s how dedicated to weddings we are!!!!

Sojat Our ‘portfolio’  

Rather than select just our favourite bits from a few weddings, we thought you might like to see the whole wedding!

So, we have shot hundreds of weddings over many years in locations grand and small and inside and outside and over that time we have gathered lots of lovely insights into the wonderful world of weddings!  Whether they are ‘traditional, ‘vintage’, ‘quirky’, ‘relaxed’ or just plain ‘mental’ we love them all.

Rod and Julie were fantastic. What a lovely couple who went above and beyond their roles as photographers to support us on the day and take creative and requested pictures. The whole wedding reception said to me how nice and great Rod and Julie were. It was important to me to capture pictures of my grandparents and Rod got every single picture with my grandparents I could possibly want. Thank you so much and I could not think of a nicer couple to have captured our special day."
