Bury Manor Barn Wedding Photographer – Jem & Pete’s Relaxed Barn Wedding

Jem and Pete’s laughter filled wedding at Bury Manor Barn was honestly such a joy to capture.  Bury Manor Barn is a wonderful location for a relaxed wedding, with the stunning views of the Sussex countryside and wonderful outside space combined with lovely barns.  The main priority for Jem and Pete was that their wedding day was a simple extension of who they are as a couple – fun, relaxed and full of good booze and food!  And they certainly delivered on all those fronts.  They really made it such a unique and special day, with many lovely little touches including a guest bakes for the desert table, lovingly crafted wooden table centre pieces from Jem & Pete’s garden, and we even had a guest appearance of the Duchess of Sussex – the one and only Meghan Markle!  (The beady eyed amongst you may have noticed the uncanny resemblance Pete has to his HRH Prince Harry!).

As a photographer you get to witness a lot of funny and touching moments throughout a wedding.  What I love so much about capturing people’s wedding days, is the unique stand out moments in my mind from each one.  One such funny moment from this wedding was when Jem arrived at Bury Manor Barn, only to require a nail repaint after smudging them when applying the polish in the car on the way to her ceremony (girl after my own heart! haha)!  There was also the heartfelt readings during their beautiful ceremony (which even had Pete shedding a tear), and when Jem and her best friend and Maid of Honour both delivered really witty, fun and heart felt speeches.  I’m a big fan of this…and did the same at my own wedding back when that just didn’t happen, so it’s great to see more of this these days in a good break from tradition.  Honestly everything about their day was just wonderful – looking at the joy in these captures just brings a huge smile to my face.  All the joy.  All the laughs.  All the love.  Captured for always.  This is why I do what I do.






I'm a Sussex based wedding photographer, but I love to shoot all over the south east of England and if you're planning a destination wedding, I'm all ears.
