Rachael + Russ: Chiddinglye, West Sussex

A couple of weeks ago, I was photographing the wedding of Rachael and Russ – their day was AWESOME! They had chosen a beautiful setting for their Humanist ceremony – under a huge tree on the farm of Chiddinglye in West Sussex. The land is in an area of outstanding natural beauty, with a private home and several barns. After the Humanist ceremony, drinks and canapés were served in the gardens of the house, and then everyone made their way down to the barns for the reception. With hay bales all around and a field for camping, it was a really unique setting! The hog roast, salads and desserts were made by the on-site caterer The Garden Chef and were just sublime!

Entertainment came from acoustic folk duo Mambo Jambo at the beginning of the reception, and then a ceilidh followed in the barn which got everyone dancing! This was such a great wedding – totally relaxed, with perfect weather, a fabulous “swish-y” dress, and great speeches! Rach and Russ are such a vibrant, fun couple – it was a real pleasure to photograph their wedding day! Many thanks to Gilly for recommending me, and massive congratulations to the happy couple!! Check out some of my favourite shots from the day…
