Farbridge Barn Spring Wedding
When you receive an enquiry from friends of a previous couple whom you LOVED working with, you know that you’ll do anything to grab them! Step forward, Amy and Chris, one of my first weddings from 2018 at the wonderful Farbridge Barn. These two, are SO adorable I quite wanted to put them in my pocket and take them home. Two of the sweetest, funniest and down to earth souls I ever had the pleasure to meet, let alone photograph.
I hadn’t been back to Farbridge in a few years, and it was even better than I remembered. Set in such a quaint and picturesque part of Sussex, it’s a beautiful space, not too big, and not too small, filled with light and surrounded by greenery, and sheep! I love countryside venues, although I love a city wedding, the greenery is where it’s at for me, always. They chose to be married in a beautiful church not too far away, and despite it starting off with typical March rainy weather, the clouds soon departed and we had a bit of sun! Hurrah!
Amy looked absolutely stunning in her two-piece dress, I LOVE wedding outfits that show individual style. Her beautiful hair and make up was done by one of my favourite ladies, Charlotte from Polka Dot Hair and Make Up. All her bridesmaids who not only looked gorgeous, were some of the loveliest people I’ve met. I knew minutes in that this was going to be a day filled with warm, friendly and of course happy people. I was not wrong!
After the slightly tear-filled ceremony, we had a brilliant confetti run and headed back to the barn for the reception. We stepped out for some quiet time so Amy and Chris could let it sink in, and grabbed some peaceful, beautiful shots outside the grounds. Oh the speeches that followed were SO wonderful. I probably did my usual blubbing but the mood was soon lifted by one of the BEST evening receptions I’ve seen.
Amy and Chris organised a sparkler run which led to a bar filled with Espresso Martinis for each of the guests. What a brilliant way to get the party started! They had a lovely first dance followed by an AWESOME dance-floor thanks to Shine On, SUCH a brilliant band! I left shortly after one of the best tunes, Sit Down by James, where everybody literally, sat down. Epic. Amy and Chris, I know it was almost a whole year ago and I hope you’ve got something brilliant planned for your first anniversary, but I just wanted to say thanks for the memories, I loved working with you both, and I wish you the BEST life together. Here are some of my faves from your ruddy marvellous day. xxx
