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.

We started the day at Rosie’s mums house –
