Folkington Manor wedding – Lucy & Danny

Folkington Manor wedding

Documentary wedding photography at a Folkington Manor wedding

Folkington Manor (pronounced Fo’ington?), a mid-nineteenth century, grade II listed manor house near Polegate in East Sussex and the backdrop to Lucy and Danny’s wedding reception. A wedding reception in a circus big top!

But coverage begins at Lucy’s parent’s house, down the road, in Eastbourne. Here Lucy got ready with her two bridesmaids, who are also her sisters. The surprise string quartet, in the garden, arranged by Danny, had long gone by the time I was due to arrive. But hair and makeup was in full flow. Why the picture of the Disney character here? Lucy was about to become Mrs Potts!

Squeezing everyone into the church!

Then off to Folkington, only a few miles away but nose-to-nose traffic. The bride had to beat the A27 close down at 2pm, as a large wind turbine was set to take over the A27. Meanwhile at the church, it seemed like a question of how to fit everyone into the small Sussex church in Folkington? Somehow it happened. Maybe the unusual box pews helped? But a small hiccup, the wedding rings weren’t at the church. They had been left in London. Someone was having a very, very stressful journey south, trying to get to the church in time, clutching them. Replacement rings were sort out amongst the guests and requisitioned. Lucy arrived on time, the service could begin.

The wedding rings arrive!

Marriage ceremony completed …..smiles, tears and applause. A punch in the air from Danny (or as his best man called it, a ‘black power’ salute in a quaint, old Sussex church). Then the real wedding rings arrived. Rewind, do the exchange again. (this time in the right order!). After a confetti bombardment outside, Lucy and Danny led the guests back down the hill to the lawns outside Folkington manor and to the family big top!

Danny’s father and brothers had brought the big top down from Newcastle – something different to the usual white marquee on the lawn. Come the speeches, it was clear that a background in showbiz helps a groom ‘own’ his speech. Dancing followed, with the impressive Piano Factor. While outside, a slice of the North – a fish and chip van and some Greggs (that Danny was very excited about).

Here are just a few images from Lucy and Danny’s Folkington Manor wedding…
