If theres one thing I like it’s a super bright and colourful festival wedding in the great outdoors, and if it’s in Essex even better! (I do love a short drive home) So I thought I’d compile a list of some of my favourite venues for you to look at and consider!

I’m happy to be on hand as little or as much as you want when it comes to being involved with your planning. Some people find they like to find their own suppliers along the way, other couples will ask for lots of recommendations for all aspects of their wedding party. I talked about find suppliers here but I always love to recommend people I know and have worked with so you can have a super supplier squad on your day! (we’re like the Avengers but more helpful and less destroying everything…)
The ceremony took place in a woodland clearing in front of the most beautiful floral moongate by The Country Garden Flower Company. The ceremony area was filled with flowers, which was perfect for the surroundings. The ceremony began with several beautiful readings from friends and family, and finished with them walking down the aisle and being showered with colourful confetti. It was a wonderful ceremony, full of lots of laughter and so much love. The ceremony was led by their friend Stevo who really made it witty and perfect for them, it was full of fun readings by friends that all fit in with their literary theme and ended with a Their final reading was an adapted version of the poem, A Scientific Romance, by Tim Pratt. A close friend Richard had memorised the whole thing (it was long), and delivered it with confidence and wit which had everyone laughing, including me!
Emma and Jim got married at the unusual Goody Ales, Herne Bay, in August. It was a crazy marquee wedding, with plenty of beer on the tables and Morris dancers everywhere.
Hattie and Tom got married last July at the lovely Chichester Village Hall, which is a beautiful village hall in Godalming. They had their official ceremony a few days before, which meant they could have a personal celebrant led ceremony at the venue. They chose Chichester Hall, because it has so many options and it cut the budget right down for them. It was a DIY wedding, which I really love because you get that strong sense of family and friends helping out. I love shooting weddings at village halls, because it’s always so chilled and there’s no strict schedule. This hall in particular was lovely and light inside and had a cricket pitch outside which meant plenty of open space to take couple photos.
Up today is Jess & Bryans super fun, alternative wedding at Kings Weston House, Bristol. I actually met Jess whilst I was at University (UWE). We both took the same course where rather than write a dissertation, you write a business plan. Mine was on wedding photography of course and Jess's was on a cake business (wait until you see the wedding cake she made!). So when Jess first enquired I already knew it was definitely going to be an awesome laid back wedding!
