TESS & THEO – BENTLEY WILDFOWL & MOTOR MUSEUM
Tess and Theo looked online for a Sussex reportage wedding photographer. Having met several other photographers and I was so pleased they chose me to work with. The venue was Bentley Wildfowl and Motor Museum in East Sussex. It really does combine a wildfowl sanctuary with a motor museum set in beautiful open grounds and furthermore, linked up by a miniature railway.
The plan for the day was an open air ceremony in ancient woodland. Guests arriving on the miniature train and then a laid back reception in the adjoining field. What Tess and Theo managed to create blew everyone away. The day went really smoothly with more than a little help from the tireless wedding planner Ella. My day started with Tess’ preparations at the nearby Ashdown Park Hotel.
The weather was always going to be a factor and the forecast was for heavy rain all morning, clearing around the time of the ceremony. I left the hotel for the venue and as guests started to arrive, the woods looked stunning with dappled sunlight breaking through the canopy overhead with lovely touches from the flowers and Tess’ hand made signage. The risk on the weather really paid off as blue skies held for the rest of the day. Everyone was able to take full advantage of the woodland and wide open space to relax, play and just enjoy.
I chatted with caterers Garlic Wood Farm during the meal whilst gratefully sampling some of their excellent food. The speeches followed as the last rays of sunlight streamed into the marquee and fell on to the couple but no one else. The day was so well planned it actually made me wonder!
