Highden Estate Sussex Wedding

Jun 30, 2024 | Weddings

Isla and Mike got married at Highden Estate in West Sussex, which is a fab walled garden that smells of lavender and has everything from a glamping field to a tree tunnel and veggie patches. They made it super colourful of course!

They had the ceremony outside on the lawn – it’s a legal wedding venue so you can bring a registrar out to marry you out in the open!

There’s a big marquee on the lawn, which they decorated with colourful streamers, and they had a sprinkles cake (I’ve always wanted one of these for my birthday!!), a doughnut wall and an ice cream truck! I’d say it was actually the perfect wedding!

“From the get go we knew we wanted our wedding to be fun, relaxed and vibrant, so we decided to bring in lots of colour and choose an outdoor venue where we could (hopefully!) enjoy some relaxing summertime vibes. We fell in love with the walled garden at Highden Estate as soon as we visited and loved that we could make it our own without having to do much to an already beautiful location!

“A hog roast buffet, ice cream truck, garden games, colourful streamers, wildflowers, DIY signage and great music felt like the perfect way to create the informal, joyous and fun energy we wanted for ourselves and our guests as we celebrated together!

“As soon as we found Anna we knew she was exactly what we were looking for and would be able to capture the smiles, laughs, silliness and joy that we knew would be a huge part of our day!” – Isla and Mike

I had the fab Phoebe Rossi second shooting for me, who took a brilliant photo of me and the couple fussing a dog that turned up randomly!
