The day started off very wet, and with an outdoor ceremony planned at the top of Lewes Castle, nerves were running high. But to everyones relief, just as Amelia and her bridal party stepped out of the house, the rain stopped and we were able to take the short walk down Lewes High Street from Amelia and Dave’s house, down to the castle.
What a stunning venue Lewes Castle is! The views are incredible and the outdoor ceremony venue at the top of the grounds is just the most breathtaking spot. The rain held off and the ceremony was perfect and as their guests were making their way back down to the gardens, we squeezed in some portraits in and around the buildings at the top of the castle, making use of the stunning views.
After some drinks and family photos in the castle gardens, the guests boarded a vintage red bus to take them to Broadacres, a short drive from Lewes town. A great venue with plenty of room for the couples beautiful pole marquee and plenty of lawn games to keep their guests entertained.
With a love of the 1950’s, Dave and Amelia really kept their wedding true to their style. Their amazing DIY cocktail bar was such a brilliantly fun extra, keeping everyone entertained making and trying each others concoctions, it really provided some great photo opportunities! An awesome 1950’s French swing band kept them and their guest dancing into the night.
A unique wedding day for the loveliest of couples, thank you Dave and Amelia so much for inviting me to be part of it!
