This was an uber exciting one for me and Lisa. We knew that Lindsey had been scouring car boot sales for all things vintage for aaages and was going to be wearing a genuine vintage dress from the 50s, so we were prepared for a real treat!
The whole day took place at the stunning Farbridge Barn near Chichester, surrounded by countryside it has a really intimate, "off the beaten track" feel which was just lovely! Eager to get started we hopped off to the room where Lindsey was getting ready. Lisa was prepared for the fact that the rooms have no windows and we carefully transported Lindsey's amazing vintage dress outside to photograph it in the greenery! This proved slightly trickier than expected due to the astonishing wind that had picked up and the ever darkening sky. But in true Devlin stylee we worked around it and Lisa got a fabulous shot!
Lisa carried on with snapping the lovely flowers by Kristina at The Blacksmith's Daughter and Lindsey getting ready whilst I scurried off to get a shot of the groom and his men - who were only 5 doors down from the bride! Risky!
Like a lot of venues, Farbridge don't allow confetti - so the bride and groom emerged from the ceremony through a bubble machine! So inventive and quirky and it actually looked really cool. Group shots took a little longer than expected as the couple both had HUGE families but we got there eventually...
Lisa had a field day with the portraits, what with the bride and groom being so beautiful AND the oodles of stunning locations in the grounds, I think she could have spent an entire week there!
Meanwhile (top gear stylee!) I chipped off to the barn to do the still-lives, my favourite bit :) and blimey was I a lucky girl! As I said, we knew there was going to be lots of little details but I barely had chance to take the camera away from my eye! Gorgeous tea caddies, old leather bound books, the cutest salt and pepper shakers, lace table clothes, vintage crockery, retro wedding pics as the table names and all kinds of other eccentric bits and bobs including a painting of a cat wedding on the top table!!!
Lindsey and Adj had obviously spent so much time planning it all, it really was fabulous... they had a polaroid camera for the guests to photograph themselves with and leave a message, a kissometer!, deckchairs, yummy cocktails made in jam jars with funky straws and super-cool entertainment for the evening - the Shellac Sisters - 4 lovely ladies who dress in vintage and play 20s-50s music on gramophones! Amazing fun!
We had to drag ourselves away from this one as we had to drive back to Brighton, with very hurty eyes I must say, but I think this one may go down as my favourite...
