A Beautiful Purple Countryside Wedding

West Sussex Spring Wedding


Vicki and David married back in the Spring at Farbridge, West Sussex. They wanted their day to be beautiful, intimate and relaxed.

They went for a fun purple colour scheme, with country style blooms, the maids in elegant purple dresses and sweet purple decorations. Vicki looked stunning in a flowing dress with her hair in natural waves, while David wore traditional tails. Such a gorgeous day.

Thanks so much to the wonderful Alexa Loy for sharing her photographs with us today.
