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!

Wedding in Llandudno, Cape Town: Chris & Judy

 

When I contacted Cape Town Photographer Monica Dart and asked her if she had any weddings I could shoot with her while I was in Cape Town, she suggested Chris and Judy’s intimate home wedding. What she didn’t tell me was that Chris is a world-renowned photographer! Nothing like a bit of pressure for my first wedding in Cape Town. 🙂 The second I met Chris and Judy, though, I was completely put at ease. They are both incredibly warm, funny and wonderful people, and their wedding was the epitome of chilled and laidback – not to mention full of the love of family and friends.

You can see Monica’s photos of the day here and here. Moni, thank you SO, so much for letting me second shoot for you. This wedding was an incredible experience.

Chris requested we get a shot of Judy coming round a certain corner of Chapman’s Peak in the vintage Mercedes he’d organised for her.

It was one of the hottest days of the year in Cape Town, so it’s unsurprising that everyone ended up around the pool. I kind of wished I could join them. 🙂
