Not sure whether to call this a sneak peek or not because as usual I’ve got carried away but this is only the cherry on the icing on the cake! I have sooo many more photos! I always worry (more!) about winter weddings but actually they bring something else to the photography table and I love candles and sparklers and twinkly lights and fire pits! Southend Barns is a relatively new venue near Donnington in Chichester (where I grew up actually!) and I am in love with this place! I say new, it’s actually very old but has been beautifully and lovingly restored and wow…. it’s definitely my new favourite venue! The owners and staff are fab and the food by Field and Fork is so delicious – but be warned, they are fast becoming booked up so you must have a look at their website – leave me a Saturday in the next year or two, hopefully for my own big day!
I met Natalie and Garreth just a few weeks ago and you cannot help but adore this couple – without going into detail it is fair to say they have been through a lot of heartache in their lives so their future and happiness as husband & wife is so so deserved and they clearly are VERY happy together. Very much in love too! They were married in Worthing before having the reception over in the barn just outside Chichester. There were tears on the day but for every little drop there were a hundred times more smiles. Their families and friends are wonderful and I enjoyed a delicious meal with them and had a giggle snapping away as they played the games that were the themes for the tables. I loved the rustic feel to the barn – rustic but beautiful. The flowers were beautiful too…. everything was! Amazing day – just want to thank the totally gorgeous Natalie & rather handsome Garreth (!!) once more for having me along to capture it all for them. I hope I’ve done your day justice… I am rather pleased with the photos we did on the beach literally as it was turning dark – very ethereal….
Here are some of my favourites for now – I’m sure they’ll be lots more when I finish the edit! xx
