The Tithe Barn in Ditcham near Petersfield is one of the most beautiful venues I know. Vast ceilings, beautiful beams, so much space for all your guests and gorgeous grounds… what more could you want! Emma & Andy were married in St Mary’s Church on Hayling Island before heading to the barn to celebrate with all their friends and family.
We started the day at Emma’s parent’s home with their fab hairdresser Beth Bramley and family friend Sylvi stepping in as last minute make up artist. I loved Emma’s gorgeous Pronovias wedding gown and the bridesmaids’ Dessy Dresses were also absolutely stunning.
After an emotional first look from Emma’s dad everyone was picked up in the most luxurious and beautifully restored camper vans from Dream Day Campers and Emma & her dad travelled in style to church in a limo from Allenby Limousines. I on the other hand hot footed it there in my old land rover 😛 and made it in time to capture the boys fanning each other down in the heat!!
After a lovely ceremony and a lot of confetti in a very confined space outside the lychgate (thank heavens for my wide angle lens!) we all made our way to Tithe Barn for ice creams from Pinks Ice Cream Vans and plenty of pimms and delicious canapés from Vanilla Catering plus lots of giggles and laughter of course courtesy of Emma & Andy’s family and friends!
I loved the décor in the barn on the tables – the beach hut boxes by Lindleywood were fantastic and all the amazing flowers by Elise at Florescense were truly a work of art in the tallest of vases! Oh and the cake by Valerie Heritage who was one of Emma’s secondary school teachers was absolutely AMAZING! So much detail…. just stunning! I love anything to do with the beach and seaside so this cake was right up my street/promenade!
I really enjoyed being a part of Emma & Andy’s big day. They booked me about 2 years ago after I photographed one of Emma’s best friends weddings and we hit it off straight away in the pub … we continued our giggles on the day and I really really hope you like this sneak peek guys…. many congratulations again!
And if anyone else likes what they see and would like me to photograph their big day too then please get in touch as my diary is filling up for 2019 already!
