Sussex wedding photographer – My wedding season is coming to a close (just one more wedding, at Millbridge Court, coming up in December) and what a special wedding to save for the end! I’ve been looking forward to this wedding ever since Katie and Ciaran asked me to be their photographer. They are the warmest, kindest, smiley-est people you could hope to meet, totally captivating and lovely. I knew their wedding would be an incredible experience (and boy was I right!). I was also delighted to return to Upwaltham Barns, which is a fantastic Sussex wedding venue set in beautiful countryside, and very ably catered by excellent wedding caterers Nibbles2Nosh.
Katie and Ciaran planned a brilliant alternative wedding ceremony. It was conducted by a family friend, and involved ring warming and hand fasting. Lots of members of the family were involved – how special to have your Grandpa and your sister help you tie the knot (literally with the hand fasting!). You could feel the love in the room, and there was lots of laughter (Katie in particularly was beaming her enchanting smile all day!), which set the tone for the rest of the day.
After the ceremony we popped out for some photographs in the pretty countryside that surrounds Upwaltham Barns, and Katie donned some very stylish wellies (which accessorised her stunning Phase 8 wedding dress very well!). After drinks it was in to enjoy the delicious wedding breakfast and some excellent speeches. The day was capped off in a brilliantly exuberant fashion with a ceilidh. They’re always fun to photograph (and I only came away with a couple of bruises, which isn’t bad for photographing such enthusiastic dancing!). That’s enough raving from me (can you tell I fell slightly in love with the happy couple?!), here are some of my favourite of their photographs.
Love Sarah xx
