Christy and Kevin’s wedding photography at Exceat Farmhouse, East Sussex

This weekend I was working as Christy and Kevin’s wedding photographer at Exceat Farmhouse in East Sussex. I started the day at their house in Brighton, taking some photos of Christy and her maid of honour, Vikki. Then I jumped on to their chartered double decker wedding bus and was driven down to The Old Steine to pick up the rest of the guests. We got to Exceat ten minutes before Christy and I had a chance to take a few shots of the groom, running around with some very fetching golden ties for his brothers, friends and best man, Richard.
The ceremony was in the front room of the Farmhouse, which had been decorated with white flowers and looked simple and elegant. Christy and Kev were both a bit misty eyed but very happy by the end of the vows.
The couple had given me a monstrous list of group photos to get through at the reception. There wasn’t a lot of time between the ceremony and the wedding breakfast, so I didn’t think I had much chance of getting through them all. In fact I had some fantastic help from Vikki and Richard, who had organised it like a small military coup, and we got everything done with plenty of time to spare. Yes, I know, I was wrong.
This was a very good thing, as it gave me my one chance to take photos of the bride and groom before it got dark. I can’t believe how fast an eight hour booking can go sometimes. They say your wedding day goes in a flash, it certainly seems that way to the photographer.
The wedding breakfast was organised and prepared by Victoria and her staff at Exceat. I did manage to have a bite (with an invitation!) of almost everything, from the canapes, to the main course, through to the snacks in the evening, and it was all delicious. Victoria even got a special thank you during the evening speeches for all her efforts.
I finished my day by taking photos of Kev and Christy’s first dance, a very professional looking jive. Then I headed back to Brighton with well over a thousand shots on my cards, enough to keep me busy for a couple of days processing.
