A BEAUTIFUL WINTER WEDDING IN TROTTON, WEST SUSSEX – ELLIA AND GRANT
IF YOU’RE PLANNING A COUNTRY MANOR WEDDING, YOU’LL LOVE THIS WEDDING FOR INSPIRATION!
When Ellia and Grant first got in touch with me about their wedding, I was so excited – they were planning a relaxed winter wedding with an intimate ceremony and a lovely meal with friends and family for the reception. Ellia and Grant are the nicest people and I couldn’t wait to shoot their wedding!
I started at Southdowns Manor, where the bride was getting ready, and it was so chilled out, because everyone was in a good mood. Ellia wore a floor-length gown and Grant wore a three-piece suit and they looked really perfect.
The wedding took place at Southdowns Manor, 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 the celebrations began.
The wedding reception took place Southdowns Manor, which was decorated so lovely. It was so beautiful.
It was a overcast day, which wasn’t in the plan but the couple didn’t mind. While the guests enjoyed drinks at the bar, I did some family photos. My favourite photo from our couples session is at night-time. 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 played all the best songs to get everyone dancing. They also had sparklers, which everyone loved.
Here are some other awesome winter weddings for inspiration! If you’re getting married and looking for a wedding photographer, get in touch.
