Kim and Nick got married at Queen’s Hall Cuckfield, which is a perfect blank space wedding venue in Sussex with a cute garden (that you can have your legal ceremony in too!). Kim and Nick filled the venue with colour – yellow paper lanterns, flowers, rainbow cake… They even put out lawn games (that thankfully weren’t wasted as the incessant rain stopped for long enough for the sun to come out and for it to behave like an actual summer’s day!). It was a totally chilled lovely day. Instead of canapes they had sandwiches and scones (jam first – who’s with me?)
They also got in the best food from around Brighton for the wedding: pizza from Pizzaface, cake from Cloud9 and ice cream from Boho Gelato (they did eton mess flavour!!).
Kim and Nick planned the whole wedding in just two weeks due to not knowing if they’d be in the country until the last minute, but you wouldn’t know it! It was fab!
Advice from the couple:
“They say that planning a wedding is one of the most stressful things you can do – but planning a wedding during a global pandemic is something else! After postponing and then agonising until the very last minute over whether to go ahead, we pulled the entire wedding together in a little over a fortnight! Ultimately, though, it brought into sharp focus what was really important to us – being in a room with everyone we love after 19 months apart (we live in The Netherlands). Everything else faded away and the day ended up being very different to what we had originally planned, but the most important thing was to have something special to celebrate with our friends and family.”
“We chose Anna because her photos really capture the celebration element of the day; her documentary style makes all the weddings she shoots look like so much fun and we really wanted to remember our day as being a wonderful celebration of us and the people we love.”
