SUSSEX WEDDING, PIPPINGFORD PARK MANOR - JOANNA&IAN

On 23rd of March I headed to the beautiful Ashdown Forest in East Sussex to photograph Joanna and Ian getting married. It was snowing and I was a little worried, but as soon as I saw Joanna smiling that morning I knew it would be a great day)) I met Joanna and Ian about 4 weeks before their wedding when they were in the thick of planning their day. I came to see them in their home and I got it straight away - they are deeply, truly, madly and passionately in love with each other. When you meet that one person, YOUR person, your other half - you just know, and this is definitely the case with Joanna & Ian. Two most amazing people who met through the mutual love of sport. Ian runs a wonderful charity Level Water helping and getting disabled kids into swimming. Joanna is a runner, surfer and a yogi. They are expecting their first baby later this year and they planned their beautiful wedding in just 3 months. I'm in awe of their energy! Thinking about their wedding day brings a huge smile to my face. There was this overwhelming feeling of love and that's what weddings should be about)) Add family and dearest friends, laughter and hugs, heartfelt speeches and dancing to the picture and you get a recipe for the most perfect day. I loved all the little personal touches and details as well, including gorgeous spring bouquets, flowers in the bride's and bridesmaids' hair, Joanna custom made wedding gown, sea inspired table decorations and a naked wedding cake)) It was a brilliant day and here's how it went:

Joanna and Ian had a legal ceremony a couple of days before the wedding. And on the day they did their own ceremony where Ian's best friend married them and they said personal vows to each other. It was very emotional and sweet))
