Happy Friday my lovelies! After a pretty full week on the blog we have one of those wonderfully relaxed, countryside tipi weddings to share with you today. Beautiful bride and gorgeous groom Lucy and Ian, along with their guests, simply walked from their ceremony to the reception in the charming village of Singleton, in the Lavant valley near Chichester. Their five month old daughter Maisie is the star of the show – how adorable is this tiny human?!

Images are by a great friend of English Wedding, Sussex wedding photographer Martin Beddall Photography. Martin’s reportage style images have an exceptional quality and capture moments and memories in such a thoughtful way. This pic (below) is an absolute favourite for me – and huge respect for the brilliant vicar (“Rev Kev”, I believe!) who was happy for Martin to be close in for some amazing ceremony shots. (Those two curious little faces peeping around Ian’s legs!! So cute!)

I love vicars. They’re characters, eccentrics and often some of the friendliest and most entertaining people you could meet. I’m as yet undecided whether I’m a pagan or an atheist… but in this context, it doesn’t matter. Today’s wedding in Chichester has a brilliant vicar photo you really mustn’t miss! (He looks so happy… as he should! You’ll see…)

Of course, there are lovely ideas and images of a beautiful bride and gorgeous groom for you to enjoy as well.

Steven and Rachel’s wedding was in West Hampnett, with a reception at Fontwell House. The happy couple have very kindly shared a wedding report with us today, which you’ll find about halfway down the page as always.

Thank you to lovely Laura from Cherry Red Photography for sharing today’s images. There are some fabulous moments here as well as gorgeous details and ideas. I hope you love this – if you do, please leave a comment or share the link on facebook! Enjoy! Claire xxx

Dean and Lisa met at a wedding, fell in love and got married earlier this year. Wedding photographers Photo Shmoto jumped at the opportunity to photograph a quirky wedding and likewise I loved all the little touches – and of course Lisa and Dean’s fabulously individual style.

The wedding was at Edes House in Chichester followed by the reception at No 12 wine bar & restaurant in the centre of town.

The colour scheme for Dean and Lisa’s wedding was blue; the theme was most definitely individuality and personality – these two are fab! From this lovely pic of Dean’s thin blue tie and rose / gypsophila buttonhole we skip to…

Trainers! That’s Dean in the middle and I say to hell with formality – if you’re comfy in trainers then don’t torture your feet on your wedding day. If shiny shoes aren’t your thing, then break the rules and wear a sparkling new pair of adidas!
