Laura and Steve in amongst the flowers at Nymans Gardens
Nymans Gardens only started catering for weddings this year and have had clients almost every weekend. This was my second wedding photography booking at Nymans and I can see why it has become such a popular venue so quickly, it’s probably one of the nicest wedding venues in West Sussex. The ceremonies take place in The Loggia, a small ‘Italianate’ style summer house, positioned in an attractive sunken garden. It takes around 25 seated guests and the public are excluded from the garden and building while the wedding party are using it.
The weather has been kind during my two visits but, if you have more than 25 guests and haven’t booked a marquee, you will be hoping for sunshine as there isn’t much in the way of shelter.
I’m posting a few photos from Laura and Steve’s wedding a couple of weeks ago. You can see how nice the Loggia looks, especially with a few custom decorations that the bride and groom provided. It is a bit cramped from a photographer’s point of view, and I had to tiptoe around during the ceremony to try and get a good viewpoint without disturbing the ceremony. It all worked out well in the end.
Laura and Steve were keen to get some photos around the rest of the gardens, so we set off after the ceremony and took full advantage of the beautiful flowers and buildings. I stayed with the couple until the gardens closed for the evening, when they left for a reception in their new home in Withdean.
