Flora & Dave : Sussex barn wedding

Lovely Sussex! another great day in the beautiful south and a gorgeous wedding at Broyle Place and The Sussex Barn at Hellingly.  This whole wedding was unique and effortless – really thoughtful details – and a very relaxed and charming day. They had chosen the Sussex barn for its relaxed feel and filled the place with old leather chesterfield sofas and hay bails, a festival-type buffet with 3 different (and amazingly scrumptious) caterers. The barn had long rustic tables with summer flowers and old school chairs – it really had a cosy feel and I loved the styling – very folk/contemporary/funky. I love this look right now, and their guests had this VERY cool style which brought the whole thing together.

I definitely have a new award for best groom speech of 2013 – Dave – it was, as all good groom speeches should be, heartfelt, honest and lovely. No big script – just perfect – and I have heard many good ones. I was so chuffed to shoot these two very tall supermodels on their wedding day. Extra special award goes to them for best megawatt smiles at a wedding. Congratulations to you both and your very friendly family.. I loved it.

(Swing dance lesson (brilliant fun) provided by the amazing Natatsha at Swing Time Dance, Pizza by Pizza Pilgrims, Salad stall by Salad Days (my goodness the halloumi..) and the Hog, hen, Lamb roast were fantastic)
