What a cracking start to the day, me and Lisa managed to drive the wrong way down a one way street and I caused alarm by pulling the wrong paperwork out of the bag!!! ARGH!
Luckily calm was resumed thanks to the laughter of Shirley and her best mate Rachel getting ready at Drakes Hotel. Such a laid-back afternoon with lots of giggling and chatting about shoes! We ADORED Shirley's uber-sparkly heels! Although we hadn't realised how little time we had and slightly cocked-up the journey on our way to Lewes - panic arose once more but there was no need - Shirley made sure she was fashionably late and we had loads of time to photograph the ceremony venue.
The service took place in the lovely (but tiny!) Anne of Cleves house, sadly the rain interrupted our group shots in the gardens but me and Lisa scurried back to the Ginger Pig
in Hove where I began the still life shots (beautiful bright blue flowers and rock place settings!) and Lisa headed down to the beach to do some portraits with Shirley and Stuart by which time the rain had thankfully stopped.
I managed to get some pics of the guests arriving on the bus but I think everyone was desperate to get the party started and soon piled into the Ginger Pig for a drink! Our friends at the pig were as accommodating as ever and put on a truly fabulous wedding breakfast - it's a great venue for a small but laid-back and classy reception.
This was such a lovely wedding, so great to work with such a fun-loving couple who were constantly laughing and smiling :)
