A BEAUTIFUL SUMMER WEDDING IN WEST DEAN, WEST SUSSEX – EVE AND JAMES
IF YOU’RE PLANNING A BARN WEDDING, YOU’LL LOVE THIS WEDDING FOR INSPIRATION!
When Eve and James first got in touch with me about their wedding, I was so excited – they were planning a relaxed barn wedding with an intimate ceremony and a lovely meal with friends and family for the reception. Eve and James are the loveliest people and I couldn’t wait to shoot their wedding!
I started at Farbridge, where the bride was getting ready, and it was so chilled out, because everyone was in a good mood. Eve wore a lacy dress and James wore a three-piece suit and they looked really perfect.
The wedding took place at Farbridge, 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 they were showered with confetti.
The wedding reception took place Farbridge, which was decorated so lovely. It was so beautiful.
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 took portrait photos. My favourite photo from our couples session is later in the evening with some bombs and 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.
