Fiona (Fifi) and Tom have got great taste. Everything they do/wear/own/create is wonderful and there was never any doubt that their Wedding would be beautiful. It was, and then some. Fifi on more than one occasion referred to the day as 'a show' much to Tom's despair, but in reality it was a gorgeous display of their love for each other.
Fi spent the morning getting ready at her parents new apartment in East Sussex. So new it was yet to be moved into, meaning the girls had a wonderful space to spread out in. This Wedding is an example of my All Day Photography and All Day Videography package - I bought along a second shooter who documented the entire day on film. I then edited this to create the highlights video shown above.
The Ceremony was held St Peter's Church in Chailey where Fifi was Christened. John, the Vicar, had everyone in fits of giggles and Fi's very talented friends Noam, Claire and Kate performed a medley of songs written just for her and Tom.
The Reception was held at the incredibly grand Goodwood House. I had met Fiona and Tom there in the summer to do a reccy, which I often do, to look at the venue before the day and get an idea of light, space and how events will run. I was super excited to see it in the winter; lit purely by candlelight and a few chandeliers, it was such a beautiful space. The walls were adorned with grand portraits and every room was filled with trinkets that guests could explore freely .
After an amazing three course meal (I can't even begin to describe level of succulence, I'm salivating again) Fi's Father, Tom, the best men and Fifi gave their speeches. There wasn't a dry eye in the house as Fifi read the adorable poem she had written for Tom (see highlights video at the top of the blog for a snippet).
I loved working this wedding. It was something very different to my usual style, but even though it had the look of a grand and regal wedding, at the heart of it were Tom and Fifi; two of the warmest souls you'll ever meet. The day was filled with love and laughter and I felt very privilidged to have been chosen to capture it all.
