Amy and Paul were married at St Mary Magdalene Church before going on to celebrate at The Barn at South Stoke Farm, West Sussex.
We were on the south coast of England for Amy and Paul’s big day and as always, we drove down the day before so we could have a kip and be all bright eyed and bushy tailed for the action. It had been a bit of an emotional week for us, we’d just found out we’d won a third Fearless Award this year and were feeling a little queasy. These awards are kinda like the Oscars for wedding photographers. We can’t think of a more prestigious award in our field and getting three of them places us as some of the best wedding photographers in the world….. the world! It’s a lot of pressure, a lot to live up to. But I guess all we can do is what we’ve always done, just try to take the best picture we can at that moment and keep pushing ourselves to improve. So yeah, we were still in a bit of a daze as we drove down to West Sussex.
We shouldn’t have worried though, it was a great day.
This wedding had one of the loveliest church ceremonies we’ve had the pleasure to shoot. Amy and Paul are super active within their church and it looked like the whole community came along to wish them well.
Afterwards, we all headed to the Barn at South Stoke Farm for the reception which is a beautiful listed building and ideal for summer weddings. There were tables with massive picnic baskets as well as an ice cream van and a crepe van. The evening was rounded off with an awesome live band before the couple exited through an impromptu tunnel of love.
We love how each wedding we get to shoot is so different from the last one. Every couple has a day that is perfect for them and brings together all the things and people they love.
We can’t wait to get back down to West Sussex. Check it out…
