Cissbury Barns Wedding | Lewis and Georgina

Lewis and Georgina had their wedding at the beautiful Cissbury Barns in Worthing. It's such a great venue; it's nice and private away from main roads, there's two barns which is great if you want your ceremony and reception there, they have walled gardens for your drinks reception with some covered seating areas as well, and there's lots of land which makes for some lovely photo backdrops.

The bridal party started their day off at The Highdown Inn which was a short drive away from the wedding venue. They booked out the entire hotel so all of the bride's family could get ready there. The bride, bridesmaids, and mother of the bride were all getting their hair and make up done in one of the rooms when I arrived. The brilliant makeup artist's were Katie Cullen and Lydia Pankhurst. Lucy from Lily's Florist Peacehaven brought the bouquets to the hotel before heading back to the venue to set up the other floral decor and giving the guys their buttonholes. Once the bride was in her dress she done a reveal to her bridesmaids, safe to say they absolutely loved the dress! They had two vintage camper vans from Deluxe Wedding Cars come and pick them up to transport them to the venue.

I got to Cissbury Barns as the guests were arriving, it was a lovely day so everyone was chatting outside. Before the bridal party arrived everyone was seated inside the barn ready for the ceremony, the groom was nervous but had his brother by his side. The stunning bridesmaids walked in one by one followed by the bride and her dad. There was a few tears, it was a lovely ceremony with a reading during the signing of the register. After they were officially married they walked out to be showered in confetti by their guests.

The drinks reception was great, they had amazing music being played by The Steel Pan Man, canapés were being served by Ren's Kitchen, there was a sweet and crisp station, and a pimp your Prosecco table. We took some group shots in the small walled garden at the entrance to the venue and some by the vintage camper vans.

After drinks and canapés guests were asked to be seated for the wedding breakfast. They had a really cool seating plan, each table was a bottle of gin. The decor throughout this wedding was rustic but modern, they had small log slices with names on for place cards with a log slice with a gin bottle and flowers on top for centre pieces. They had two mini wedding favours for each guest; a cake jar and a shot of limoncello for the toast after the groom's speech. The father of the bride delivered the first speech before the food, it was very funny, the best part was when he pulled out a framed photo of the couple's dog who was left at home. Then a delicious roast dinner was served buffet style by the catering team, it was one of the best roasts I've ever had. After mains came the Groom's speech, he was quite emotional which is always lovely to see, he had the guests teary as well. Then came dessert and the brother of the Groom's speech.

After the wedding breakfast I took the couple off for some photos in the fields. We used the outdoor ceremony area, the horse fields, the driveway and the walled gardens for the photos. These guys were so easy to work with, it was fun.

Onto the evening reception, after more guests had arrived the DJ announced the cutting of the cake and the first dance. This lovely wedding cake was made by Sugar Craft Cakes. They had their first dance to Yellow by Coldplay then the DJ and Sax duo from Earcandy Live carried the party on. Everyone was up on the dance floor which is always awesome to see. They had hot dogs and burgers as the evening food and they also had a camper van photo booth by Bus and Bug Vintage Weddings which everyone loved, especially the kids. Overall it was an amazing day, thank you Lewis and Georgina for letting me be a part of it!
