Pangdean Barns Wedding Photography

Kate & Lincoln

Published: 17/08/12 + Updated:1/04/20 by Simon Fazackarley

After meeting them, hanging out with them for their engagement session in Surrey & getting to know them over the course of a year – Kate & Lincoln’s Pangdean Barn wedding was a day that couldn’t arrive quick enough for me – every time I saw that Kate had visited my website (My web stats show a lot of visits from San Francisco, I don’t know anyone other than K&L in SF!) the anticipation increased just that bit more! So even though the weather was not kind (massive understatement), it was still a brilliant, beautiful day filled to the brim with emotion, excitement & fun.

I adore doing weddings for people who live overseas – often they haven’t seen their friends and family in some time, especially all together – so it really adds to the sense of occasion and makes the photographs all the more important.

Kate grew up around Sussex, so it was only natural for her to come back here for her wedding, to get married at the family church and celebrate amongst her Sussex based family and friends. They also brought a not-so-small contingent of world travellers, with people hailing from various parts of America and all across the world – so many wonderfully interesting people!

They got married at the beautiful St Peters Church in Ardingly, before heading over to one of my favourite local venues Pangdean Barns. I do love a good barn wedding & Pangdean Barn weddings are always brilliant, Michael, Nikki and the team always have everything running like clockwork and even on a day of pretty bad weather everything went smoothly.

Slight side story, I was talking to Kate during the day, and mentioned how disappointed I was for them that the weather had turned out so badly – certainly not something to expect in the middle of summer! But Kate said something that that will stick with me for ever.

She said that the weather didn’t matter, and that she was grateful that I was there capturing photographs of her friends and family having an amazing time, that those were the images that mattered the most to her and those were the images I was capturing.

That truly resonated with me and is certainly something I’ll carry with me forever.

It’s not about the weather, the location or the details – of course, all of those things add to the story, matter and deserve capturing. But the point is – weddings are about the people. It’s the people, the moments and the personal stories where the true magic of wedding photography lies.

Onward with the important story! I started the day briefly with Lincoln in the pub. Mainly as I’d already been to see Kate, when the bridesmaids, in various state of preparedness, ran away like startled deer – albeit way more glamorous. Meeting with the boys for a little gave them all time to prepare for the day, so by the time I came back they were excited to be in photos!

After that little introduction to Lincoln, it’s time to head back to Kate.

I usually carry a leatherman multitool in my bag at weddings, useful for opening, fixing & cutting all manner of things & solving wedding crisis’ – but never has it featured in any of my photos before though…

This is the point where the rain started, only a minor drizzle at this stage… but more was on the way! They got married in the lovely St Peters Church.

Rain isn’t something to get us down on a wedding day, check out our tips on what to do if it rains on your wedding day!

After the wedding, the bus took everyone onto Pangdean Barns, Sussex has some great barn wedding venues – we’ve had the pleasure of shooting at most of them but Pangdean is certainly one of the best.

As it was a largely indoors day, spent hiding from the rain, I thought it wise to record exactly what it was like outside.

Katie and Jason

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing Katie & Jason’s wonderful wedding at St. Margaret’s Church, Ditching & Pangdean Barns. I love Pangdean barn weddings – I’ve had the opportunity to shoot there a lot before, it’s really close to my house & it’s just such a beautiful venue – the staff are top notch too!

It was such a great fun day – including some of the most epic ceilidh dancing I’ve ever seen – I was tired just watching them! Katie’s dad is a musician & told me he has been to Pangdean a few times as a performer – so it was only natural that he ended up on the stage later in the evening!

Here are a few of my favourites from the day –
