A BEAUTIFUL SUMMER WEDDING IN ARUNDEL, WEST SUSSEX – CLARE AND JONATHAN
IF YOU’RE PLANNING A CHURCH AND HOTEL WEDDING, YOU’LL LOVE THIS WEDDING FOR INSPIRATION!
When Clare and Jonathan first got in touch with me about their wedding, I was so happy – they were planning a relaxed traditional wedding with an intimate ceremony and a lovely meal with friends and family for the reception. Clare and Jonathan are the nicest people and I couldn’t wait to shoot their wedding!
I started at the couples flat, where the bride was getting ready, and it was so chilled out, because everyone was in a good mood. Clare wore a lacy dress and Jonathan wore a navy suit and they looked really perfect.
The wedding took place at St Mary’s Church, Felpham, and was a romantic ceremony. They had some beautiful readings, which brought pretty much everyone to tears. After the ceremony they walked down the aisle together, and then we did a confetti tunnel outside the church door.
The wedding reception took place Hilton Avisford, Arundel, which was decorated so lovely. It was so personal.
It was a slightly rainy day, which wasn’t in the plan but the couple didn’t mind. While the guests enjoyed drinks at the bar, we wandered around the venue doing fun and creative portraits. My favourite photo from our couples session is later in the evening at golden hour. Check it out below!
During the reception they had a lovely meal with friends and family, which everyone loved. For the wedding breakfast they had proper wedding grub, and it was so yummy. Afterwards, they had some wonderful speeches and the DJ kept the party going all night. They also had a homemade photobooth, which everyone loved.
