Golden Hour Timings

As a Sussex and Destination Wedding Photographer knowing all about Golden Hour is crucial.

Golden hour is definitely my favourite time of day. I’ve loved to photograph the sunset at all different times of the year where I live. I have so many photographs of sunset in different locations with my landscape photography 🙂

Light is amazing but it is also very quickly changing.

Below I have some rough timings for golden hour throughout the year, as you will see below it changes a lot and it’s very important you consider this when planning your wedding day. A lot of clients have missed out by planning speeches at the same time as Golden Hour – by the time they go outside it’s dark! I would use an online calculator and look at the specific timings on your wedding date. Please note depending on where you are this changes.





As a reference, here is an idea of when Golden Hour will start from Londons sunlight calculator:

January (3rd)- 2:29pm

January (20th)- 3pm


February (3rd)- 3:33pm

February (20th)- 4:12pm
