I was so excited to be phoptograhing Stewart & Lauren’s wedding, not only because it was taking place at one of my favourite venues, the beautiful Southend Barns wedding venue Chichester wedding venue, but I had also seen this lovely couple less than two months before while photographing Stewart’s brother Tom’s marriage to Kathryn at The Tithe Barn wedding venue in Hampshire! It was the start of a 2 day wedding weekend for me with the next one being all the way down in St Ives, and I knew they were both going to be great ones.
Southend Barns Chichester wedding venue is just incredible, and as you would have seen many times on my blog it never fails to please, no matter what the weather, theme or size wedding, every wedding here leaves everyone in awe and smiling. For Stewart and Lauren, the sun certainly had his hat on and the sky was the most amazing blue, combining this with their sense of style and all the details they had put into their magical day I was in my element. I spent the morning with Lauren at their home near Southampton while Tim headed straight to Southend Barns Chichester wedding venue to capture Stewart and his guys preparing for his big day. I have to say I love the gifts he gave to his guys – just see in the pictures below!
With vintage cars matching the colours of their day, a stunning bride, dapper Groom and an awesome crowd of guests the whole day was just so much fun. Their ceremony of course took place in the Dairy Barn which flows with natural light, while their cake cutting and speeches were held on the lawn of the main courtyard, it’s only the third time I’ve seen the speeches held outside and it creates such a fab atmosphere – sunshine, laughter, people sat on the grass with the sun shining… need I say more.
Every part of this wedding was gorgeous, both Tim and I thoroughly enjoyed capturing it all on camera. This was my first wedding at Southend Barns Chichester wedding venue in two months, BUT my first of 4 over the next few weeks. Just check out the photos below to see how luscious this stunning couple and their wedding day was.
A massive Congratulations to you both, Stew & Lauren. I wish you every bit of happiness for your future as hubby and wifey. I sincerely hope you love your photos as much as I do.
