Nicky & Steve
The Bell, Ticehurst
Nicky and Steve got married at The Bell in Ticehurst which is the most amazing, quirky venue. Having met I was so excited for their wedding day, and it didn’t disappoint. The Bell is a photographers’ dream, filled with the most weird and wonderful curiosities wherever you look. Neon signs, antiques, indoor trees, taxidermy and unusual lighting – they even had old brass instruments in place of urinals in the men’s loo, so I had to get a picture of the groomsmen in there! It really lends itself to laid back, fun couples which suited Nicky and Steve down to the ground. Despite being September it was a really warm day and Nicky looked absolutely stunning. I loved that the speeches were really chilled with everyone siting in the converted stable with a sunken banquet table, it made for some gorgeous unobtrusive shots of everyone laughing. I was lucky enough to be the first to photograph the new love nest that was only finished on the morning of the wedding! The lodges were so cool and great for photos of Nicky’s preparations. A brilliant day for a gorgeous couple.
