Georgie and James said their wedding vows before friends and family in a location dear to them both. Having travelled the world and visited exotic places, they found their spiritual home together in the beautiful English seaside resort of Camber Sands near Rye.
For the couple to be able to share their day with loved ones, in a place so close to their hearts, is what made this wedding so very special. Everything about the day felt genuine and just perfect for this couple and the locations of Camber Sands Beach and The Gallivant Hotel. I loved Georgie’s choice of cornflower blue for her bridesmaids, her relaxed ‘just gathered’ bouquet featuring Eryngium, better known as Sea Holly, and also featured in James’s button hole. The Sea Breeze cocktails on the beach, and all the work Georgie put into making the place settings, beach themed table plan and decorating her starfish wedding cake.
I met up with James and the guys at the Rye Bay Cafe where beers were sunk and stomachs lined with a hearty brunch!
Meanwhile back at the couple’s house, Georgie and her bridesmaids were making their final preparations for the day ahead. Do allow yourself to swoon at those Jimmy Choos!
The 500 year old church of St Mary at Guldeford stands in a meadow usually frequented by sheep. The church is very special, and also very different to your average church, if there is such a thing.
Unbeknown to Georgie, her dad had arranged for classical operatic singers ‘Waiters Encore’ to surprise everyone by bursting into song. All I can say is the result was mass euphoria ending with a river of tears and emotions to Puccini’s Nessun Dorma.
