Jess & Chris got married at the stunning Rumbolds Barn, near Billinghurst in Sussex. It’s a venue I’ve heard great things about for a long time, but not one I’d had the pleasure to work at until their wedding. And it did not disappoint! It’s a really lovely space with beautiful gardens & a fantastic lake.
Jess & Chris planned their entire wedding remotely – as they’re based in Germany (Chris is a designer for Rolls Royce – which explains the ultra luxury wedding car, further down!) But the remote planning didn’t show on the day – everything went perfectly & every little detail was perfectly considered.
I started the day with Jess in Shoreham, at her folks house – where she was preparing for the day surrounded by all her friends & family – the atmosphere was buzzing, everyone was so enthusiastic & happy, it really showed what a fabulous day it was going to be. Afterwards I headed up to Billingshurst to catch up with Chris & the boys, getting ready at Rubmolds Farm – the nerves were palpable, but everyone covered them up with laughter & brandy!
Everything took place at the barn, from the wonderful outdoor ceremony conducted by their friend – through to the delicious meal (from a Faz fave – Brighton Bakes) and onto the dancing in the evening. What a day!!

For the photographers reading – this was my first wedding using my new baby, the Fuji X-Pro2 (alongside my usual Canon 5d3’s), it’s a game changing bit of kit. So fast, so light, so unobtrusive. Love it!
