Last weekend we join Tim and Nicky for their wedding at the beautiful Southend barns near Chichester. We met Tim and Nicky when we photographed Andy and Kimberley’s wedding back in 2013 at Rivervale Barn so we knew this was going to be a fab wedding and we were honestly not disappointed.
Having met Tim and Nicky a week or so before for an engagement shoot and to chat over photos we also knew they would be great on the day too.
We started our day with Nicky and the girls at Southend Barns for a couple of hours preparations which was just perfect, everyone was buzzing and the Barn was filling up with guests, the weather was overcast, no surprise because it was forecast and as the house went by the sunshine started to appear and the day started to look better. The prep shots were amazing, lovely details and getting ready shots a pretty perfect start to any wedding day.
We then went to see Tim who had arrived in a snazzy TVR sports car and took some photos of the boys and of course the rings before heading back to Nicky just in time to see her dad arrive to Nicky’s room.
We then headed into the ceremony, the arrival shots were brilliant, Nicky just smiled and giggled all the way whilst poor Tim looked so nervous. That all changed as soon as Nicky arrived by his side and you could feel calmness in the room. The ceremony was really nice and enjoyable to be a part of and straight out into the line up for Confetti, I don’t personally like this part of southend barns “schedule” and think I would advice against it next time because doing the confetti first means we missed all the initial hugs and kisses shots 🙁 by the time people have been led out and thrown confetti they just want a drink which is a shame plus the bride and groom were covered in confetti for the family photos.
That aside the sun was shinning and everyone happy, champagne, canapés and a beautiful couple what more could we ask for. We spent a couple hours on the lawns shooting a few group photos as well as our reportage and of course taking Tim and Nicky for a walk in the courtyard gardens.
Just before the wedding breakfast I organised the everybody shot (which is when I would choose to do confetti) and afterwards we all headed into dinner. Sue and I then took our table photos and headed out to grab our dinner. I had raced the day before and had a half marathon the next day so I tucked into bbq’d chicken and caus caus whilst they all tucked into their lovely dinner. Afterwards the speeches were entertaining and then coffee whilst Sue and I setup our Funtime Foto booth ready for an hour or so of fun. Just as we hsetup the heavens opened and the rain started…phew that was a lucky escape.
After the funtime and a few pictures around the fire pit we headed into the barn for cake cutting and dance photos before Sue and I said our goodbyes and headed home.
All in all this was a perfect wedding. Sunshine when we needed it and the rain held of until dinner time. Great couple (as always) and wonderful family and guests.
Thanks guys we had the most awesome time 🙂
