When it comes to creativity and having your own brilliant twist for a wedding Nicolola and Darren really showed how to do it,
sort of medieval babe meets one of the three musketeers. Throw in hand made paper bouquets and buttonholes, a stunning black and white wedding dress, along with bridesmaids in yellow and black
and you know you have done something unique! Oh, and of course a sword for the cutting of the cake.
The rustic look of Blackstock Farm with lots of agricultural implements, traditional gypsy caravan, fields with views over the Sussex countryside
and it's Bluebell Woods Walk (the bluebells hadn't quite put in an appearance, but the woods still looked good) were a perfect match, you really couldn't have
pulled this off in a modern boutique hotel.
The ceremony took place in the barn on a raised balcony overlooking the guests. It was a bit on the dark side up there so I popped a little Manfrotto LED
light on which also provided enough illumination for the registrars to read their notes, most grateful they were too. It was a bright but slightly chilly day, although certainly warm
enough to take advantage of the outside features around the farm and the last of the light in the early evening was beautiful for some long shots over the fields.
This was a really unusual day and was loads of fun to photograph. As I've mentioned, Nicola and Darren had picked just right venue for their quirky style and a brilliant time was had by all. You can find out more
