Rosie and James’ had a beautiful wedding a few weeks ago at the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill. A 4pm ceremony in mid-January is expected to be a little colder and darker than the rest of the year – but Rosie and James, along with their friends and family lit up the day, with love, warmth, happiness and laughter.
It was a pleasure to witness, photograph and be a part of.
Rosie has a meticulous eye for detail and had a vision for exactly how she wanted her wedding day to come together, from the beautiful matching dressing gowns she kitted out her bridesmaids (and later in the day, gorgeous dresses, of course!), to the utterly stunning festoon lighting they had decorating the auditorium at the De La Warr Pavilion – you’ll see later, it looked incredible!
Everything had an immense amount of attention and thought put into it and it really showed.
Rosie wore a stunning Caroline Castigliano dress, the ever talented Carolanne Armstrong provided the makeup, Naomi and the staff at the DLWP provided the delicious food and managed the days proceedings wonderfully smoothly. The gorgeous cake was made by Sylvias Kitchen. The amazing flower arrangements and decorations were from La Collina Gardens and their wedding band was the brilliantly fun Redstone Collective, who kept everyone dancing late into the night.
Thank you to Rosie and James, for having us along – you’re such wonderful people and your day was truly magnificent – an absolute pleasure to be a part of. Your guests are a good bunch!
I photographed the day and my partner Heather made a beautiful wedding film of the celebrations.
Wedding Photographer Bexhill
As Rosie and James got married in January in Bexhill, and as they had a 4pm ceremony, in winter – they knew they wouldn’t really be outside for a lot of the day, but as they were really keen to have light, bright and airy portraits, they chose to have their couple photos later in the year – once the weather improved.
Having grown up in Bexhill, Rosie loves the area and it holds a lot of fond memories, so it was the logical place to do their photos. I’d spotted a gorgeous length of beach on my way to their wedding, so suggested that might be a great location to explore and funnily enough it was the exact spot Rosie had been to a lot when she was younger, so that is where we started.
On the wedding day we are often limited in the amount of time we spend doing photos with the couple, and for good reason – we’d rather you be enjoying yourself with your guests! But they’re such important photos, and often the ones that get printed – so having the opportunity to spend longer on them was a real treat!
Thank you Rosie and James – it was wonderful to see you both again!
