I can’t picture a more idillic start to a wedding day than weaving through the peaceful Sussex countryside towards Long Furlong Barn with the summer sun cascading over the golden fields that surround the beautiful Sussex wedding venue.
Every wedding is truly beautiful and being a Shoreham wedding photographer I’ve spent many wonderful days with beautiful couples. Lara and Ryan’s wedding day right at the beginning of September was nothing short of stunning and completely filled with joy. I had the pleasure of being their wedding photographer at Long Furlong Barn alongside Stephen Mark Photography which ensured we captured every aspect of this special day.
I arrived a Long Furlong barn to find Ryan and his guys getting ready in the lovely bridal room while Stephen was with the Lara and her girls at her home. The atmosphere was buzzing with anticipation of the day ahead and Ryan was relaxed as he bantered with the guys and welcomed the guests as they arrived. Lara and Ryan both work for the Sussex Police Force and I loved the way they incorporated details on this into their day.
Lara’s mum walked her down the aisle towards a beaming Ryan and through the sea of overjoyed and emotional friends and family. Their ceremony was perfect, with hilarious moments, tearful moments (happy ones!) and such a celebration of the love they have for each other and the life they now share together.
After their ceremony the entered the beautiful courtyard to a sea of confetti and glasses of refreshing bubbles and pimms. They enjoyed celebrating, eating and partying with their happy guests into the evening to superb live music as the sun set over the beautiful South Downs National Park.
Lara, Ryan and their guests were so well looked after by the staff at Long Furlong Barn who ensured every element of their day went smoothly and beautifully. It was a real pleasure to be with them on their day as a capturing some precious moments and wedding photos at Long Furlong Barn for them to treasure always.
