Here’s a bit of midsummer gorgeousness for you in the form of Leah & Adam’s relaxed Nymans 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
Following on from Jen & Steves wonderful registry office wedding in Brighton with Marilyn & Elvis – they had a humanist ceremony at the beautiful Hill Place in Hampshire. They took over the house for an entire weekend of Fun, Laughter, Frisbee & Jaegermeister!
Jeni is an amazing/world famous makeup artist (Jeni Dodson) who I’ve had the great pleasure of working with at a few weddings, so for her to choose me to document their wedding(s!) was an insanely huge honour. She’s worked with thousands of photographers so its such a compliment that she would pick me to capture their weddings! & a special thank you to Heather, who came along and documented the day with me! The images below represent a good mix of both our efforts.
This wedding has just been featured over on RocknRollBride – Where Jen and Steve have provided a lovely write up of their experience.
Charlie & James had a village fete theme for their wedding at Duncton Village Hall in Sussex & I can’t imagine the theme suiting any couple better – Totally relaxed, tons of fun – epic day. I knew they were going to be my kind of clients from their engagement session, but their wedding blew every expectation to pieces. It.. was… mega… Made all the more personal by having family & friends play huge parts in the day!
We travel around the UK alot for weddings, so to be able to work with such a lovely couple right in our back yard was a real pleasure. Charlie is something of local celebrity being a local news reporter & James is a professional camera man, both of them oozing with charisma and charm so were absolutely wonderful to spend the day with.
