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.
We’ve covered lots of weddings at other barn wedding venues – Sussex Barn, Bury Court, Fitzleroi, Pangdean etc. and they always make for great days, so we were very excited to get to Rumbolds and it certainly did 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.
“Wow!!! The photos are absolutely amazing! We cannot thank you enough. You have captured the day so perfectly, looking through the photos feels like living the day all over again.”
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!!
“You made us feel so relaxed on the day, it was a pleasure to have you there… Thank you so much, the photos are wonderful and they will be so special for us, friends and family to look through.”
