We have been so lucky with our bride and groom’s this year and the new locations we have photographed at, this one was no exception for Rye Wedding Photography- Debbie Sanderson.
We met Jemma and Mark last year at Morley Farm Oast to check out the venue and discuss the sort of photography the couple would like . Morley Farm Oast is delightful, although it isn’t a wedding venue parsay the owners have hosted a few there and what a fab location. Set in the beautiful East Sussex countryside a few miles from Rye, surrounded by rolling hills and big skies, it’s stunning. It even has it’s own pond , well almost a lake.
Jemma and Mark were keen to express that this was to be a fun, low key wedding and they didn’t want anything stuffy or formal, so the order of the day was reportage photography with a few group and romantic shots but mostly it was the capture the day as it naturally unfolded . Great that’s what we like , you would think that was easy but it really isn’t, you have to have eyes everywhere so you don’t miss a thing.
We started the day at Jemma’s cottage a few miles away, she was joined by her bubbly bridesmaids who were all busy with hair, make up and of course drinking a few bubbles to calm the nerves. My sort of girls..lol. We captured the fun and a few posed portraits of Jemma, I love the one of her sitting in the window, so natural. Her Dad came to join them and you could see how proud he was of his little girl. We left them to get to Morley Farm Oast so we could get some images of the boys and the surroundings before the ceremony. This was do be held in the garden overlooking the view with a beautiful flower arch as a backdrop.
The ceremony was fun, especially when they couldn’t light the candle due to the wind blowing the flame out. The confetti line was the longest I’ve ever seen, fab pics though. The day then was filled with fun from the wedding party photographs, the tug of war, the pimms on tap, the speeches over looking the lake with two amusing best men, poor Mark and the brilliant barn dance at the end, guaranteed fun pictures with that!
We loved this wedding and think the pictures reflect their day perfectly, hope you agree?
