On probably the hottest day that we have ever photographed on we were at Sussex Barn in Hellingly for Laura & Callum's brilliant rustic, country wedding. It was a scorching August Saturday and we started the day by finding Laura for some bridal prep shots with her Bridesmaids and some of her family at Boreham House, which is a gorgeous setting nearby to get ready in. Laura wore a stunning floor length bridal gown with a sleeveless fitted, delicately beaded bodice that went to a diamonte waist and full skirt. Laura's hair was in a half up do finished with pretty pearl hair accessories. Her Bridesmaids wore Sage Green chiffon floor length dresses with open backs and carried simple Gypsophila bouquets.
Sam met Callum at Sussex Barn where he was busy putting the final touches to the Barn decor. He was amazingly calm and collected, helped by his Groomsmen rallying doing last minute jobs. Callum wore a Navy Blue suit with a pastel coloured ditsy floral tie. He had a gypsophila flower button hole and his Groomsmen all matched. Sam got some shots of Callum and his Groomsmen before the ceremony started along with all the amazing detail shots of the Barn decorated. Callum and Laura had done most of the decor themselves and there were lots of hand made touches like the cake and the seating plan.
Laura arrived at the venue in a cream VW Beetle Convertible and the Bridesmaids arrived in a VW camper van. The ceremony was beautiful, very relaxed & heartfelt. Laura's brother was the lucky man who walked her down the aisle and she took everyones breath away! Soon Laura & Callum were the new Mr & Mrs and walked back up the aisle beaming and ready for a glass of bubbles to celebrate!
After the Bride & Groom had time to mingle a little and get that very much needed glass of something, we whisked them off for a little while to get some shots in the grounds around the Barn. The sky was particularly spectacular that day and we got some fantastic shots out in the open field near the barn with clouds hanging in the sky that almost didn't look real!
Later the couple entertained their guess with gorgeous food and lots of outdoor games and dancing. In the evening there was a photo booth and we left them with the party still in full swing! It was such a brilliant day and we were so chuffed to be a part of it.
All the best Laura & Callum for a future of nothing but fun and happiness!
