An absolute Beauty of a Wedding at West Dean Gardens for Claire & Ed xxx

Uncategorized

What can I say, I’ve been dreaming of a West Dean Gardens wedding ever since I first visited the gardens 7 years ago and the day finally arrived!  Claire and Ed are simply the loveliest people and I have got to know Claire really well over the past 6 months having done some commercial work for her Pilates company Fitfig Pilates.  Honestly, you couldn’t hope to meet a more beautiful, gorgeous soul and it truly felt like I was watching a friend getting married.  The day wasn’t quite how they’d planned as rain kinda scuppered the outdoor ceremony in the Rose Garden but neither Claire nor Ed let this affect them or ruin their day in any way.  It pretty much drizzled at West Dean Gardens from midday through til the evening but the laid back couple were only too happy to be photographed outside under the pergola for their couple photos.  There was simply no way I wasn’t using the stunning gardens at some point!  Claire’s gown was a divine Maggie Sottero number with a hint of pink too it and just the most delicate beading.  She looked incredible.  Claire’s make up was done by the wonderful Lucy from ID Salon in Chichester and hair was by the lovely Philippa.  All the team at West Dean Gardens were incredibly friendly and nothing was too much trouble.  I would highly recommend West Dean Gardens as a venue, especially as I know they only take on a very limited number of weddings a year, so your day is always going to be pretty unique and special.  I also put together a little 3 minute wedding trailer for Claire & Ed as I knew Claire would have loved a videographer but perhaps the budget wouldn’t allow.  It’s the very first time I’ve even touched the video setting on my Canon Mark IIIs so it’s totally budget and amateur but I wanted to share it with you all as a little summery of the day (password westdean) 🙂   Lastly, huge huge thank you to the ever wonderful Camilla Arnold for 2nd shooting, love you lady!!  Enjoy xxx
