About This Project
Today I have the pleasure of showing Ben and Maxine’s country wedding. They were married on 9th September at St Laurence Church, Hawkhurst, followed by a reception at a private house in Bodium East Sussex.
Ben and Maxine put so much time, effort and care into creating their perfect wedding. One of the best DIY weddings by far! The marquee looked wonderful decorated in lanterns, flowers, signs, and endless beautiful hand-made decorations. The cake stood proud on the most epic table that I have ever seen. Hand crafted by Ben, with the cake decorated in leaves fitting the venue perfectly.
Understandably there is a risk when it comes to organising an outdoor wedding in September, but, this was not going to stop their special day. Fortunately the weather was on our sides, as It only rained briefly during the speeches. This gave us just enough time to sneak off and capture some truly beautiful shots before sunset.
The day followed with plenty of drinks and an amazing band which got everyone dancing. I found it difficult to drag myself away. They were such a fun and loving couple. Everyone made me feel so welcome. A day to never forget!
I would like to thank Jo from The Garden Room at Golden Square florist, who I met a while back at Preston Court.
Please have a little scroll through Ben and Maxine’s stunning pictures – I really hope it persuades you to go for it and organise an outdoor wedding of your own!
