Charlie & James – Wedding Part Deux {FEATURED}

After all the love and fun signing the register, we still had Charlie & James' ACTUAL day to look forward to!!! And what a truely beautiful day it was! Emily and I went over to Duncton Hall the night before to help build this little village fete wonderland full of bunting, cakes, flowers and May Poles! I had the honour of being James' best man but still managed to capture a few fleeting shots in between duties and the 'speech'! I even had my very own mini to pick me up and drive me to the venue. I did have to dislocate my legs to get in but it was still lots of fun! Charlie and the bridesmaids looked absolutely stunning, James scrubbed up alright and even the Gods took pity with the rain until the sun went down. We wish all the love, health and happiness to the beautiful Mr & Mrs Felgate!

Charlie & James – Wedding Part 1 {FEATURED}

So, that time has come. My beautiful friends Charlie & James went and got all married and ting! Between them they devised a beautiful, village fete themed wedding at Duncton Village Hall, near Petworth. It was a truely amazing day and they both looked fantastic, but hey, I’ll save all that for another post!

As the Duncton Village Hall didn't have a marriage license, Charlie & James had to make alternative arrangements to sign the register 2 days prior. With myself and Emily as their 2 witnesses, we set off to Lewes for a very beautiful day. Neither Charlie nor James wanted to make too much fuss, as key family members couldn’t be there and nothing was going to detract from their amazing ceremony a couple of days later. But either way it was always still going to be a very important occasion. James stayed with me overnight and Emily stayed with Charlie. We woke up, washed our bacon breakfast down with Champagne and rushed down to meet the girls at the train station.

What followed was a gorgeous, sunny day of love and laughter, wandering round the town of Lewes. We also had a fantastic lunch in Bills. The restaurant staff were amazing. Not only was the food outstanding, they also presented Charlie and James with a beautiful bouquet of tulips, as well as a huge goody bag of chutneys and Balsamic vinegars. A memorable day of fun, perfectly accompanied by our body weight in Champagne!
