Lucy and Ollie, East Sussex

We absolutely adored this wedding. Everything about it was beautiful, but mostly Lucy and Ollie and their wonderful families, the people really did make this wedding. Everybody was so incredibly welcoming and friendly, and the sense of love and affection between the family members was very strong indeed…they’re a very lucky couple.

Lucy and Ollie got married at their local family church in Withyham, East Sussex, and they had their reception in a fantastic marquee at the bottom of Ollie’s family home. They were blessed with bright sunshine and warm weather. The gardens (which Ollie’s parents had spent months working on) looked stunning. They had lots of help from a family member, Holly, who really did an amazing job at co-ordinating and planning the day.

Lucy looked so beautiful in vintage Chanel shoes and a Halfpenny wedding dress….one of my favourites! We were joined on the day by Tom Ravenshear photography, who we worked with on one of our very first weddings. Was a real pleasure to see him again!

Thank you both for having us, we loved every minute and you were a delight to be around; and good luck with your fantastic TV career Lucy…will look out for future productions!! x

 

 

Rosie and Faris – Ruggles Farm, East Sussex

Rosie and Faris are fabulous (or they’d probably prefer awesome?!). I should really explain why, but just to start off, you should know that they’re fabulous… Rosie is a friend of the equally fabulous Matt and Bridge whom we filmed a couple of years ago in London, so we were over the moon when Rosie got in touch to say they’d like to hire us. What makes them fabulous too is their sense of fun, excitement, happiness, adventure (they’ve been nomads travelling around the world whilst planning this wedding) and their genuine warmth and ability to connect with people. See? They’re brill!

The whole wedding took place at a friends farm (a friend they met and worked with in New York), who kindly offered to host the day for them and guests travelled from all over the world to celebrate with them. Glamping fields were set up, marquess built, suppliers co-ordinated all under the wonderful eye of Michelle and Vicki at Pocketful of Dreams, who were so great to work with. They had styled the whole day on a neon/festival/rave/country theme (that is actually a thing!) and it reflected the couple perfectly and created a wonderful backdrop to the day. Everything ran like clockwork…thank you! The gorgeous flowers were supplied by Highgate florists and music was but The Heartbeats.  Elbie Van Eeden helped make Rosie look even more beautiful and I adore her choice of pink, layered wedding dress. It couldn’t have been any there colour!

Personalised vows (my favourite), family members singing and beautiful readings all made for a very emotional ceremony which was then followed by a proper knees up in the marquee with some fantastic dancing….and photo booth bombing. We also had the absolute pleasure of meeting and working alongside the lovely Helen and assistant Hayley from Helen Cawte Photography, who were both genuinely one of the loveliest ladies we’ve worked with. Thanks for being so nice! You can see the photos here…beautiful.

So, to sum up, we loved this wedding and everything about it. You couldn’t help but be touched by this couple’s warmth and friendliness. Thank you both for having us film your day and I can’t wait to see what you  both get up to in the future! With love xx  (stay awesome;))
