I was equally flattered as excited to be asked to photograph Lauren & David’s wedding at Southend Barns Chichester as Lauren works with photographers all the time and knows a good picture when she sees one! Being the person who usually sets everything up for the photos Lauren wanted lots and lots of natural shots – nothing too posed – hopefully we achieved that! St George’s church in Eastergate is such a lovely little church and with a late ceremony in November we were lucky to still have enough light afterwards to be able to grab some photos outside by the 17th century former granary – what a fab little backdrop! And of course a couple under the lychgate which had been so beautifully decorated with flowers. David’s friends put together a fantastic sword arch for the happy couple to walk under too as they left the church. We arrived at the barns a little too late for any outside photos but it’s such a gorgeous venue with lots of opportunities to shoot inside and as always I snapped away as I mingled with their lovely guests. The tables looked so pretty and that cake! Wow… well done Hilary! (That’s Lauren’ mum)… 🙂 The staff at Southend Barns are fantastic – they’re so friendly there I can thoroughly recommend it as a perfect wedding venue. And no wedding would be complete without some Céilidh dancing and a live band of course… hats off to everyone who picked it up so quickly – looked like so much fun but I was quite happy to be stood on a chair taking some photos as it did look hard work!! Thanks again Lauren & David for having me along for the day – here are some of my favourites….
