It was wonderful to return to the stunning Southend Barns in Donnington near Chichester. I have been fortunate to photograph quite a few weddings at this venue now and it remains one of my very favourites. Melissa and her bridesmaids started the day in the bridal suite and the brilliant Emma Pargeter from www.glamourcrush.co.uk was on hand for the bridal hair and makeup. It was a beautiful day for Melissa and Ben’s wedding, and after the ceremony in the Diary Barn, guests were able to enjoy their drinks reception in the gorgeous sunshine. The wedding breakfast was held in the stunning 200 year old Threshing Barn and each of the tables had a clock face – in reference to Ben’s passion for watches. The caterers for Southend Barns are Field & Fork and they are simply amazing – the food, the service, the timing is all perfect. After the meal, guests were again able to enjoy the early evening and were joined by more friends and family to really get the party started.
