Wakehurst Place Wedding ~ Lizzie & Chris ~ a couple of very happy campers!

When Lizzie and Chris booked me for their Wakehurst Place wedding back in May I honestly couldn’t wait to visit the gardens to see what backdrops we had to play with.  I had already met the gorgeous couple for a shoot Lizzie booked a couple of years ago on Chris’s birthday!  We hit it off straight away down at West Wittering beach and I was chuffed to bits when Chris proposed to Lizzie and they asked me to be the photographer for their wedding too.  Wakehurst Place is absolutely stunning – so many gorgeous places for photos!  We got lucky with the weather too (considering it was snowing and freezing cold when I visited the gardens, I think we were all a little relieved!)    The house that is usually open to the public is closed off when they hold weddings there and it’s such a beautiful place for a reception party. If you look carefully in the photo by the main door there’s even an E & a C engraved in the stonework – it was fate they should have their wedding there!  I should mention before the reception at Wakehurst they tied the knot in St Peter’s church down the road from where Lizzie grew up in Ardingly followed by Pimms & cupcakes in the Vicarage garden.  They had not one but two gorgeous camper vans as transport for the wedding party and a Beetle for themselves.  We were VW’d out to the max!

I had a wonderful time with Lizzie & Chris and their fantastic friends & family – what an amazing crowd!  I even did a shoot for one of Lizzie’s bridesmaid’s & her partner and doggy just the other day (hey there Lucy & Sean!)  I love all the pretty details at a wedding, it goes without saying (!!) but for me it’s always the people that really make it – the atmosphere and the love in the room…  and there was plenty of that to go around on Lizzie & Chris’s big day!

Here are some of my favourite photos …
