Russ and Becky’s beautiful wedding at Hendall Manor Barns
I first met Russ and Becky at the Bluewater Wedding Fair and it has been a delight getting to know them and capturing their engagement and wedding photos. From the beginning they showed their flair for organisation and efficiency – and they chose a wonderful venue. I was delighted to have another Hendall Manor wedding. Hendall Manor Barns are based just off the A26 between Uckfield and Crowborough and is a wonderful venue for events and is always immaculately organised by Nic and Peter Young who run it. Russ and Becky’s wedding service was held at St Mary’s Church in Speldhurst, near Tunbridge Wells.
I have recently delivered their wedding album to them which was a lovely reminder of just what a special day they had last April.
Becky got ready at home with her bridesmaids and parents…. her beautiful bouquet came from The Florist in Tunbridge Wells. I left them and hurried off to St Mary’s Church in Speldhurst to catch up with Russ and be ready for Becky’s arrival…
and then the ushers thought they would drench them in confetti!
After a lovely service and dusting down the confetti they headed off down lots of little Sussex lanes towards Hendall Manor Barns for their reception with their canapés and wedding breakfast catering by Martin Doyle and the fantastic wedding cake by Guilty Cakes Ltd.
By the time we get to the wedding, my couples know me well enough to know that I get excited by wonderful light and I always say that if the weather is good as the sun sets I will come and find them so that we can make the most of this and despite the ominous clouds, we were blessed with lovely soft light for a few photos of the bride and groom before returning for a brilliant evening of Scottish country dancing.
At Hendall Manor the evening draws to a close at 10pm, allowing guests to take the last train back to London or back to accommodation nearby in good time. The party was in full swing with music by Licence to Ceilidh until the very end when Russ and Becky left with sparklers lighting their way…
Congratulations Russ and Becky!
