“Nothing else mattered” at Pangdean Old Barn wedding …
… other than the love between Kate and Ben. Metallica is always a good starting point but then I would say that, as a bit of a rock chick. Kate and Ben chose Nothing Else Matters as their first song and for me, it summed up their togetherness perfectly. It “couldn’t be much more from the heart”.
When I met Kate a year ago I knew their wedding was going to be a treat. As a former photography student, Kate came to me with creative ideas and as the wedding drew closer, more and more ways were exchanged to truly make the most of their special day. I loved working with them both. On the wedding day they were completely relaxed and enjoyed it to the maximum. It was a delight to part of their big day.
They were a natural couple to shoot and the connection between them is clear to see. Ben is also a motorbike acrobat so hopefully nothing we did on the day was as tricky as the stunts he performs. I enjoyed using the gardens as a back drop and the daisies gave a soft feel to some of the couple shots. I chose the lead image for the chemistry between them.
“Tying the knot!”
This former Anglo Saxon settlement in the heart of the South Downs was a the perfect choice for the handfasting ceremony. The ritual is symbolises their free will to enter marriage and the binding of their lives together. It is the origin of the phrase, “tying the knot!” Initially, a handfasting ceremony was more than an act during the wedding. The entire handfasting used to take place over a year and was more of a trial marriage. If at the end of the year, you were still in love, you would get married.
