Hendall Manor Barns, Sussex
Laura + Ashley got married at the very beautiful Hendall Manor Barns in Sussex in October last year and what a wonderful day it was!
I arrived at one of the cottages on the venue grounds in the morning to a bunch of lovely bridesmaids and a very calm Laura! With matching gowns and bubbly in hand I knew it would be a great day.
Ashley was waiting at the aisle with his best men, his brothers, and a ceremony room full of family and friends eager to watch the wedding unfold. The light was absolutely gorgeous in the room, a photographers heaven! A back drop of fairy lights was the perfect scene to get married in front of.
It was a relaxed and informal day, with canapés being passed around and the sun shining. We went for a walk after the ceremony to take some group pictures of everyone, along with the bridesmaids and groomsmen and then for Laura + Ashley's couple portraits. The lake was a gorgeous setting for these and it was a great time for the newly bride and groom to take a breather and soak up their day.
The speeches followed the wedding breakfast where the best men had the whole crowd laughing with paper maché models and Laura's Mum said a few words which went from laughing to everyone in tears. Its always so lovely to have a mixture of emotions throughout the speeches and they certainly delivered on the day.
After cutting their mountain of Krispy Kreme donuts everyone enjoyed a few shapes on the dancefloor and a lot of scoffing of cheese and biscuits!
Thank you Laura + Ashley for having me along to your beautiful day, I had an utter blast as I'm sure you did too!
