Week 45: A gorgeous Alternative Wedding in the South Downs

November 23, 2013  •  4 Comments

Hello, and a very special welcome to Week 45 of my blog.  I have been dying to bring you this beautiful alternative wedding from just a few miles outside of Shoreham in Fair Oaks Farm, Wiston, at the foot of the South Downs.  

RockNRoll Bride Approved Rockstar Vendor

I am beyond excited that this wedding is shortly going to be blogged by none other than Rock 'N' Roll Bride, which my wedding industry readers will know is one of the world's biggest wedding bloggers and thus a great platform on which to showcase my images. Thanks so much to the wonderful bride and groom, Lucienne and Peter, for generously agreeing to this and writing their part of the Rock 'N' Roll Bride blog submission.

Just a short introduction, then I'll leave you with a plentiful selection of images telling the story of their very special day. 

 The Handfasting/Wedding of Lucienne and Peter, September 13, 2013

The weather forecast was dreadful, but undeterred and excited about the day, I decided to beat the rain and turned up at 7am, 5 hours before required!  I desperately wanted photos in the early light of the his and hers yurts they slept in the night before.  I only got about 20 minutes shooting time before the heavens opened, but that was all I needed.  Being so close to Shoreham, I was then able to head back home, shower, and turn up again a couple of hours later a little more refreshed and energised by a large breakfast!

As forecast, it did literally chuck it down all morning.... and with their special handfasting ceremony at 3.00pm, I made the most of the time photographing the amazing barn resplendent in bunting, fairy lights and all manner of colourful decorations made by the bride and her friends for several months beforehand. Then with an hour to go before the ceremony, the clouds parted and the sun shone, and the sides of the marquee came up..... no more words needed, the story unfolds in my images below.  Enjoy!

And to finish my blog this week, some lovely feedback from the happy couple:

"It was such a joy to have Jenny as our photographer. From our first meeting until the day itself she showed such enthusiasm and excitement for our Hand Fasting and we knew we'd picked the right person for the job. She has a personal touch, and you can tell she has a real love for her work and commitment to her clients.

Throughout the day she was unobtrusive, understanding and hardworking. The photos themselves were absolutely exquisite and captured every magical moment perfectly, from the ceremony itself to the smaller details and moments of the day and into the evening. She always had a smile on her face and put everyone around her at ease. We are so glad we picked her and know we couldn't have found anyone better."

 

Thanks again to Lucienne and Peter for allowing me to share their wedding, and thanks to you for reading, Jenny x
