Nikki and Bruce’s Sussex woodland wedding was a highlight last summer. It was the first ever wedding to be held in those particular woods, and was run by the wonderful Sarah and her team at Wildflower Events.
The couple have two young children, and it was a very sweet watching Nikki walk down the aisle with just them as her little flower girl and page boy. What an aisle it was, walking along a leafy path through these beautiful woods!
They had already carried out their legal wedding ceremony at a nearby town hall that morning, so they chose to actually lead the ceremony themselves. Bruce introduced family members and friends to carry out readings, and they had each written vows to perform. It’s the first wedding I’ve ever photographed that wasn’t being led by a celebrant or reverend, and it made the ceremony even more personal. As they walked back down the aisle with the children, the guests threw dried flower petal confetti.
Sarah at Wildflower Events did an amazing job, transforming it into a beautiful Sussex woodland wedding venue. The pathway was lined with lights, a circular arch was suspended between the trees for the ceremony, there was a fire pit with a canopy and seating for relaxing around in the evening with a glass in hand. The tipis themselves were very impressive, with plenty of room for the tables, dance floor and of course the bar. The couple had hired caterers to provide a BBQ, which fit perfectly with the relaxed setting.
As the sun set the atmosphere of the woods changed, and became almost magical as they danced the night away under the twinkling lights and the stars. Wildflower Events are able to provide a range of tipis and bell tents to suit your requirements. Given the ever changing situation with the government wedding restrictions at the moment, if you are planning a small wedding and wish to host the reception in your garden or a family members, then Wildflower Events could be the perfect choice for you.
