Laura and Phillip get married …

Laura Winchester and Phillip Rudd planned a gorgeous vintage, rustic wedding on 18th August 2017. I was absolutely delighted to be asked to photograph the wedding as I’ve known Laura for a number of years and love her creativity and sense of fun. The ceremony was in the beautiful Southover Grange in Lewes followed by a hog roast and dancing at Rushford Farm.

The couple with help from family and close friends created a lovely space to party in a previously empty field. There were marquees, an open fire, play areas for the kids, hay bales and sofas to lounge on, cider and champagne to drink, amazing cakes to eat and the a most fantastic dessert buffet I have ever seen. Laura’s forties styled dress was handmade by her Uncle David and was absolutely stunning. The suggested dress code made for some very stylish outfits. The weather threw everything it had at the day but it was such a fun filled, energetic event I’m not sure anyone cared! Many congratulations to the lovely couple!

Jemma and Amy get married …

Jemma and Amy’s wedding at Anne of Cleaves house in Lewes was a magical day. They are a lovely couple and it was a pleasure to share their day and try to capture the love, fun and excitement that was in the air. The girls had chosen a stunning venue for their ceremony and the weather was reasonably kind to them. Each small detail had been carefully thought through and the finishing touches were mostly hand-made by friends and family. From the vintage tea settings to the beautiful gifts and decorations, everything was gorgeous with small touches of humour. I had a busy day, starting with Jemma and her bridesmaids, then a mad dash to find Amy and her bridesmaids (who were secreted in a room upstairs at Anne of Cleaves to ensure the couple were kept apart until the right moment!)

There was a real sense of joy in the room as their commitment was made; despite the gales of laughter when passing tourists peered into the room to see what was happening. Time flew by as we tried to gather all the right people in the right place at the right time … herding cats is such a terrible expression!! I managed to have some time with the couple away from their guests with the VW Camper Van as the star of the show!   Getting Ready 1-1 Getting Ready 1-2 Getting Ready 2-1 Getting Ready 2-2 Getting Ready 3-1 Getting Ready 3-2 Arriving-2Arriving-1Getting Ready 4-1 Getting Ready 4-2Ceremony-1 Ceremony-2 Couple-1 Couple-2 Speeches-1 Speeches-2 Table
