Ridge Farm Wedding – Isabel & Nick


Isabel and Nick’s Sussex wedding spanned two counties. With the service held not far from their home, at St Margaret’s church in Ditchling ( East Sussex ) and the reception at the idyllic Ridge Farm,  just over the West Sussex boundary and into Surrey. (A couple of miles from my house!) But it wasn’t a completely Southern event, as many of the family and guests were from Lancashire – the immortal Chorley.

The rain held off for the ceremony and reception, despite the heavy downpours of the night before and in the morning, with the sun making an appearance at the end of the day. The coverage begins with everyone getting ready at Ridge Farm, which had been hired for the weekend. The reception was held in the Pool House ( everyone sat atop a boarded up swimming pool ) and the meal was provided by Indian Summer, from Brighton.

But the highlight was probably the gig after the meal, when before the DJ and the first dance, the groom and his band hammered out many famous tunes for their screaming fans – who didn’t want them to stop!

Here are a few reportage images from the day…
