Katy and Mark got married at Two Woods Estate in West Sussex. It was a gorgeous day with gorgeous souls in a gorgeous place. Just bloody… gorgeous.
We were feeling the pressure before this wedding. It was our first full day wedding of 2018 and our first since winning a couple of Fearless Awards. As Katy explained to her Mum “That’s like getting two Oscars!” Oh yeah, and Katy was a wedding photographer for the last 13 years. We were definitely feeling like we had a lot to live up to.
We shouldn’t have worried though. Before we even got out of the car relatives and friends were cracking jokes and chatting with us like we were old friends. Katy told us to just do whatever we liked, having that freedom to play and create the pictures we wanted took all the stress away. We had so much fun at this wedding, it really didn’t feel like work.
The venue itself is pretty awesome. Two Woods Estate is over 40 acres of woodland including an area with humongous Redwoods where the ceremony took place. There’s a very spacious apartment where Katy got ready and it’s truly a gift for photographers and make up artists, loads of windows for natural light and bright white walls and ceilings were a treat. Then there’s the barn and conservatory, and the gardens, and the bar. The staff were great as well, on the ball, relaxed and happy all day. We can’t wait to shoot here again and heartily recommend Two Woods Estate.
Traditions were wrapped in a little ball and thrown out of the window too. No cake cutting, the newlyweds smashed a pinata. No formal group photos, just people enjoying themselves. No first dance, everyone piled on the dancefloor for an epic group dance. MINT.
It was a day filled with love, fun, COLOUR, happy tears, food, music, table-tennis and creepy masks. You can’t ask for more.
