Catherine and Vince were married at the historic, quintessentially English Falmer village back in 2015. I've known Vince for many years and was honoured when he and Catherine asked me to photograph their wedding day. Falmer village encircles a beautiful old pond and village green, the setting couldn't be more traditionally British; chocolate box cottages and baby ducks waddling behind their mum stopping all traffic. The church of St. Laurence sits within the parish of Stanmer and is over 200 years old and looks out over the village.
Reception and dinner were held in the village hall, literally a stones throw from the chruch across the village green. Vince and Catherine spent long hours preparing their big day and were hands on when it came to setting out the dining room and table decorations etc.
Catherine walked from the village hall to the church arm in arm with her father, a short reflective walk before meeting her husband-to-be inside.
As the sun set, everyone headed into the gorgeous Grade II listed barn at the back of the church; a live band made sure nobody sat down for long and celebrations ran long into the night. Exhausted I returned home around midnight having spent a glorious summer's day photographing my friends getting married and watching them celebrate their love with all their family member around them.
