Shona and Daniel
Shona and Daniel were married in March 2014, at St Mary Magdalene’s Church in Bolney, West Sussex. With strong connections to the village it was the ideal place to celebrate their marriage.
We began with the bride and her bridesmaids getting ready, and after the hubbub of wedding preparations made our way to Bolney in good time.
The bride made her entrance from the historic village high street through the lych gate and the picturesque grounds of the Church. After the ceremony the location was an ideal setting for some group photographs of the wedding party and images of the Bride and Groom perched on a wooden seat carved into the shape of a heart.
Afterwards the reception was held in the Dutch Barn and Cow Shed at Tulley’s Farm, the Cow Shed being far more comfortable and salubrious than it might sound at first! Seating made from hay bales added a lovely rustic charm to the proceedings.
The couple gave the wedding their own particular twist, dining on traditional fish and chips with an ice cream van arriving for desert.
The entertainment had a vintage feel thanks to a swing trio, and the guests joined in enthusiastically. I was a little taken aback at how quickly the dancefloor filled with couples at the end of the Bride and Groom’s first dance, and it was clear just how happy everyone felt.
All in all a perfect Sussex wedding day, full of character and heartfelt emotion.
