Barn weddings are one of my favourite to photograph and Southend Barns is a beautiful wedding & events venue nestled in the countryside near Chichester. It’s also just recently opened it’s very own outdoor ceremony area which I can’t wait to photograph a wedding in. We stayed indoors for Lucy & Jamie’s wedding there the other weekend as Jamie was singing to Lucy as she walked in with her Uncle up the aisle – and he’d already tested the acoustics! I can assure you there wasn’t a dry eye in sight. It was such an emotional and beautiful moment to witness and although Jamie was super nervous he was pitch perfect and sounded absolutely amazing. He was followed by music from Chapel Hill Duo who were also fantastic.
Lucy looked gorgeous in her beautiful tulle wedding gown, Charlotte Louise MUA did a great job making Lucy positively glow on her big day and Charlotte from Polka Dot Hair & Make up worked her magic as always with all the gorgeous hair dos.
Lucy’s stunning flowers were all lovingly put together by a family friend and the delicious cake was made by her Auntie… I love it when everyone comes together to help out on the big day. Barn weddings don’t need much extra décor as they all have their own natural charm but Lucy & Jamie added some gorgeous extra touches and made it all look lovely and personal to them with the table names being places they’d visited together. We were really blessed with the weather all day, it was stifling hot but we had the most unbelievable sunset. In fact when we first went out for photos because I thought we had a nice sunset Lucy & Jamie followed me outside to the field behind Southend Barns for a couple of pics then about 1/2 an hour later the sky literally burst into flames whilst the fantastic Deloreans were playing their first set and I had to “drag” (!!) them back out with me for another photo – at the time I felt bad asking them again but it was seriously worth it. I love the photo so much I’m starting the blog post off with it! Congratulations again Lucy & Jamie and thank you so much for letting me be a part of your special day!
