Rain on your wedding day - so what?! The Great British weather was certainly not going to bother Hannah in the slightest. I don't think I saw her without a massive beam on her face from early morning until late at night. Hannah was marrying her soul mate, Steve, and that was all that mattered.
I had already met 'the boys' the previous evening - wet shaves and beers all round at the awesome Blakes Grooming in West Chiltington. And in the morning it was the girls' turn - enjoying their bridal preparations at beautiful Park Cottage in nearby Kirdford. It didn't matter that the rain came down - the scenery was stunning from the huge french windows complete with geese on the lawns (you can just spot one peering through the window in one of the images!), viewed from squishy leather sofas.
Umbrellas and towels at the ready, the ushers welcomed their guests into beautiful Bartholomew Barn in Sussex. The ceremony ended with a joyous high-five before the couple made their way to the marquee and toasted each other as husband and wife. As it turned out, the rain wasn't destined to last, and guests threw confetti as Hannah & Steve walked through the arch leading to Bartholomew Barn's picturesque courtyard. The entire day was peppered with fun touches - check out the groomsmen's socks, their nephews' superhero capes and giant bubbles. There were even build-your-own aeroplanes on the tables and superhero props which kept guests of all ages happy!
Hannah and Steve's truly perfect day ended with a walk and more impromptu high-fives at sunset, followed by dancing to Blunter Brothers - a great band who had everyone up on the dance floor. This is how I captured their story:
If you were there, I hope you enjoyed reliving your day... and if you weren't, then I hope you felt like you almost were!
