Wow, what a fantastic, fun-packed and emotional day! I had only met with Natalie & Garreth just a few weeks before their wedding but I felt instantly drawn to them – such a lovely couple, so kind and genuine and when they told me they’d booked the glorious Southend Barns near Chichester for their reception I had both my fingers and toes crossed they’d book me when I left our little meeting at the pub! Lucky for me they did as it really was such a wonderful wedding – I felt such a part of their celebrations, everyone was so relaxed and clearly enjoying themselves – enabling me to capture so many fun candids, they have amazing friends and family! I loved spending a bit of time with Garreth and the lads getting ready before heading round to Natalie to get some shots of her getting into her beautiful dress and of course snapping the shoes and flowers – oh and their cute cats too who followed me everywhere but had to be shut away from the dress! After the ceremony and confetti (Natalie had made all the lovely paper cones to put the confetti in – gorgeous) we headed to the beach at dusk for a few photos – my new camera’s low light capabilities came in very handy here! Then of course we headed to Southend Barns just outside Chichester. I do love it there – Natalie & Garreth had chosen their favourite games as table names and included one each of the games on the tables for their guests to play too! What a cool idea! I know I’m typing too much now so will just give a quick shout out to the band Recover – they were awesome, the food by Field and Fork – wow wow the best beef I’ve ever tasted – hence a photo all on its own to try and show the deliciousness of it!! And of course hats off to all those who put a silly hat on for me in the SNAPstick booth, I did have such a giggle oh and thank you for the guest’s patience to get the sparkler shots – they were fun too! OK ok – now for the pics. Far too many of course!!
