I wouldn’t necessarily label myself as an ‘alternative Sussex wedding photographer’. However, if I did, Willa and Jack’s wonderful, unconventional wedding celebration would certainly justify the title. Willa and Jack were very keen to understand my documentary approach. In addition, they wanted to be sure I was going to fit in with them and their day. We got to know each other over a few beers and from then on, I was an integral part of their plans. For example, Jack and I went to the venue together to talk through the layout. Specifically, the best place to put the arch for the ceremony and to create the isle.
The venue was a field in Wadhurst which Jack had secured from a good friend of his. In addition, jack wanted some living ivy to decorate the wedding arch and tables. I have lots growing on and around my house so with help from a mate, we collected enough for the job.
The day felt like a true collaboration, firmly focused on fun and celebration over tradition with a real festival vibe. Willa and Jack’s gold footwear gives you a clue! Everyone was free to relax and able to enjoy the entire day from pitching camp to the amazing fireworks.
