SARAH + JOE // UPWALTHAMS BARNS // SUSSEX
I was so happy to be back at the gloriously beautiful Upwaltham Barns in Sussex for the wedding of Sarah and Joe. One of my absolute favourite venues and a venue I am lucky enough to have photographed at on a few occasions. Set in the glorious South Downs the views and scenery from the venue are among the best and the courtyard area between the two barns is the perfect setting for any Wedding Reception.Sarah and her gorgeous 7 bridesmaids spent the morning getting ready at her parents house before heading in her dad’s much loved and cherished cars to the barn. How lovely to be driven to your wedding by your dad.
Their ceremony was a gorgeous, personalised affair, with readings by their brothers and sisters and personalised vowels written for each other. Always a nice touch to capture.
Sarah and Joe wanted a relaxed and natural feel to their photos but also wanted to add a little bit of fun to their group shots to show their cheeky side.
Sarah and Joe enjoyed a beautifully prepared and served meal by Upwaltham Barn caters Nibbles to Nosh, before standing to thank their guests with a lovely crafted joint speech, not knowing entirely what each other had written. Fantastic!
For their first dance Sarah and joe had choreographed a swing dance, which with Sarah in her now skater evening dress was fab. To then be joined by both sets of parents to finish. I was so impressed that I had to put my camera down and join the guests in a rapturous round of applause! Huge huge congratulations to Sarah and joe, you’re a such an awesomely sweet couple and I wish you all the happiness for your long future together!!
