West Sussex Wedding Photographer – Colourful Backyard Wedding {Philippa & Glen}

Rainbow bouquet wedding

An explosion of colour, and laughter. And FUN. And more laughter. And love. And even more laughter. That’s what I remember most from Philippa and Glen’s fantastic church and backyard wedding in West Sussex this summer!

Philippa came to me via a referral from one of my previous brides, Charlie (hi, Charlie and Simon!). She loved the bright colours in my photos, and as a result decided to BRING IT on the colourfulness in her and Glen’s wedding! I was really touched when they told me they’d done this because of me. And of course, I was in my element, because I adore colour! So everywhere I looked there were coloured paper lanterns, coloured ribbons, coloured umbrellas, different coloured flowers for each table…even the junior bridesmaids wore different colour ribbon sashes and carried different colour bouquets. And Philippa’s bouquet was the best of all, being a full-on rainbow explosion!

The ceremony was held in church, and then everyone drove to Philippa’s parents’ gorgeous house, where a marquee had been set up in the garden and decorated with coloured bunting, haybales, photos of the happy couple, and everything else I’ve just mentioned in the “I love colour” section!

I’d met Philippa and Glen a few months before the wedding for their London engagement photography session, so I knew they were a super sweet couple and very much in love, but it was so wonderful to see them interacting on the day with so much love and happiness! I kept catching them having sweet little moments together, as well as having an awesome time laughing uproariously with their crazy fun guests. Shoutout to the friends and family of Glen and Philippa, you guys made it outrageously easy to get the “people having fun” photos that they wanted!

Big thanks to my fab second shooter (as always!), Heline Bekker!

Italy Wedding – Destination Boccadasse Wedding in Genova, Italy {Val & George}

Val (Valeria) is Italian, but lives in Brighton with British George. However, they decided to have their wedding in Italy (heck yes! Who wouldn’t?) at a church in the gorgeous seaside fisherman’s village of Boccadasse in Genova, followed by an outdoor backyard reception at Val’s grandparents’ house in the hills. And it was all so beautiful!

The day was HOT – like Raiders of the Lost Ark melt your face off hot – but everybody valiantly didn’t melt (yay for fans!) during the service, which was followed by drinks on the beachfront and some epic climbing for Val and George – and me! – to get up to the oceanview spots for photos. Then off to the reception, where thankfully it was cooler! The garden looked magical with strings of lanterns and fairylights (I adore fairylights), and the food, in typical Italian fashion, was delicious and excessive – yum!

There was also some awesome dancing. You’ll see at the end. Boy do I love it when people enjoy the dancing!

The speeches were one of my favourite parts. Because Val had lots of friends and family who don’t speak English, George made his Groom’s speech bilingual, and pulled off some amazing Italian (caveat: I don’t speak Italian but it sounded amazing to me!) in the bits where he thanked Val’s parents and family, and talked about why he loved her. I was so impressed, and I don’t think there was a dry eye in the house. These two love each other so much, and were so excited to be getting married and spend the day with all their loved ones.
