When Danni and Laurie first got in touch with me about their Highdown Vineyard wedding in East Sussex, I was so thrilled – they were planning a really fun countryside wedding with an intimate ceremony, lawn games and even a magician. Danni and Laurie are the loveliest people and I couldn’t wait to shoot their wedding!
I turned up at Laurie’s mums, where the bride and her family were getting ready together, and it was so relaxed, because everyone was in a good mood. Laurie wore Bijou Bridal Boutique wedding dress and Danni wore Bijou Bridal Boutique wedding dress and they looked so perfect.
The wedding took place Highdown Vineyard, and was a romantic legal ceremony. They had personal vows they wrote themselves, which was so beautiful. After the ceremony they were showered with confetti, and then we went and did some beautiful portraits.
The wedding reception took place Highdown Vineyard, which they’d decorated with flowers. It was so personal.
It was a beautifully sunny day, which was glorious. While the guests ate canapes, we wandered around the venue doing fun and creative portraits. My favourite photo from our portrait session is with the star burst.
During the reception they had a magician, which everyone loved. For the wedding breakfast they had a slap up meal, and it was super yummy. After the meal they had some wonderful speeches, then the party got started and the couple had their first dance. They also had sparklers, which everyone loved. Danni wrote Laurie a song and had a singer sing it which she put to slideshow and played on a big screen during the speeches.
Laurie and Danni met when they worked together at Butlins in Bognor Regis.
Here’s their beautiful, romantic and intimate Highdown Vineyard wedding!
