Sian and Matt's wedding was just wonderful from start to finish. Sian got ready with all her bridesmaid in one the beautiful Tudor Cottage in Westbourne. Her make up artis Amber @amberfiedmakeup and Hannah Hair UK @hannahhairuk did a fantastic job with Sian looking gorgeous the whole day. After her first look with dad in the garden, Sian was collected by her favourite car Land Rover to get to the stunning ceremony situated in the heart of Chichester City Centre, The Guildhall radiates romance and charm. With plenty of natural light, a beautiful stone floor and grand opening entrance, The Guildhall will add a touch of fairytale wedding to any ceremony.A Grade 1 listed building with a rich history which dates back to 1282, The Guildhall is perfect for couples looking for a venue with history and ambiance.

After the 'I do's' had been said and the confetti had been thrown it was time for the couple to do some photos on their special place in Bosham Harbour.

The reception room looked so beautiful. Sian and Matt did such an amazing job by decorating the room in a colourful tones. It's warm wooden beams and fairy lights created such a warm, cosy place. After speeches and the meal, it was time for cake cutting and dancing. Matt and Sian had chosen a band called Mumfudden Suns which created a fanstastic atmosphere in the room.

My couple and I escaped to the field nearby to take some stunning sunset photos. The evening was just magical and it was so lovely to watch people playing outdoor games, sitting by the fire pit and having lots of fun.

It was a dream to work with Matt and Sian. They are such a lovely couple and they made me feel to be a great part of their big day. Thank you so much for being so welcoming!
