Chloe and James are a mega creative couple and their wedding, which took place in the grounds of Firle Place and Firle Riding School in Sussex, had a lovely village fete theme, complete with loads of outdoor circus-style games to keep their guests amused during the reception. They even had a mini tightrope – how awesome is that?!
Chloe the bride plays horn in the Uckfield Concert Brass band and her band chums played throughout the ceremony at the church and then again later at the wedding reception. But as an extra special touch the band was joined by Chloe herself on the horn. Seriously, she is one talented lady!
In a break from the traditional three course wedding breakfast Chloe and James laid on a fish and chip supper for the guests, all made fresh on site by a mobile fish and chip company, complete with optional mushy peas and lashings of tomato ketchup, salt and vinegar. As a chip connoisseur I can confirm they were utterly delicious.
And as a final awesome touch Chloe and James had hired some Charleston dancers to teach their guests a dance routine. The dancers were incredible and by the end of the night everyone was out of their seats and dancing their socks off. I bet there were some very sore feet the next day!
Chloe and James your wedding was utterly awesome. Thank you so much for letting me be a part of it and inspiring me to try my hand at juggling! x
Here’s a bit of midsummer gorgeousness for you in the form of Leah & Adam’s relaxed bohemian wedding.
Leah and Adam are one cool couple, so it goes without saying that they had a wedding to match, full to bursting with totally awesome details!
The wedding ceremony took place at Nyman’s Gardens and Leah and her family were staying at a cottage nearby the night before, so I met up with them there for the bridal preparations. It was also great to see Jeni Dodson, whose wedding I shot last year, doing Leah’s hair and makeup.
I spent a bit of time with Leah before heading over to Nyman’s to meet up with Adam and the rest of the wedding guests. And I was just in time to catch Adam having a final bit of guitar practice ready to play as Leah walked up the aisle to the Loggia. You don’t get more romantic than that!
After the ceremony guests were treated to a picnic lunch on the lawns of Nymans so I took the chance to steal Leah and Adam away for a few portraits in Nyman’s grounds.
Later on in the day we all headed off to nearby Copsale Hall for an outdoor wedding reception, catered by Brighton supper club hostess Cantina. The food was INCREDIBLE! As for details, woah, there were homemade cakes, outdoor games, (including pig throwing!) meadow flowers in jam jars, and all the menus and labels were designed by groom Adam, who is a designer by day.
This was such a great wedding to shoot, fantastic people, a mega creative couple, glorious weather and details a plenty!
Leah and Adam, I hope you had a fantastic time on your camper van honeymoon travels! x
