Emily & Zach's Southend Barns Summer Wedding

The last day of June this year was steaming hot, perfect for outdoor nuptials and particularly ideal for the exciting debut of the brand new outdoor ceremony area at Southend Barns. Emily and Zach had been planning their wedding for two years and so it was a wonderful surprise for them to discover they could marry in this newly created bespoke space. It had been sweetly named ‘The Secret Garden’ which was due to be finished and ready for use just in time for the couple’s big day. Being a gardener by trade, this tranquil hideaway outdoor area particularly appealed to Zach who would really appreciate all of the rustic textures, including the lush green leafy plants and trees, wooden log feature walls and original flint stone barn walls. The couple felt hugely honoured to find out they would be amongst the first to marry in this beautiful garden space and of course it was a treat for me to have an additional beautiful backdrop to frame the bride and her groom exchanging rings and promises.

Jade & Sam's Southend Barns Summer Wedding

There were so many sweet, romantic and happy moments that filled this warm June day - so much so, that it was difficult to shake off the face-ache from the perpetual smiling that we all seemed to be engaged in! Jade and Sam married in the light and calming Dairy Barn that regularly plays host to brides and grooms celebrating their nuptials at the effortlessly charming Southend Barns. For friends and family of Jade and Sam, the scene was set that day - not just by the beautiful south coast countryside surroundings and pretty pastel notes in the decor, but helped along by the couple’s natural and fun approach to the day filled with their warmingly contagious laughter!

Katie & Matt's Southdowns Manor Spring Wedding

On a whimsical April day in Petersfield, Katie and Matt married at Southdowns Manor, a grand and stately looking venue sitting right on the borders of Hampshire, Surrey and West Sussex. Theming the day was a colour palette of romantic lilac and lavender, shades of purple aptly known to symbolise purity, love and devotion - a perfect choice for a wedding day! I’m pretty sure this delicate and sacred colour inspiration also helped to evoke calming feelings and relaxed happy vibes throughout the day, as both the bride and groom and their guests seemed very at home and nicely insouciant at this charming setting.
