I think, and it’s just a hunch, that if Carlsberg were to branch out into weddings they could do a lot worse than use Louisa and Chris’s ridiculously, effortlessly cool day on the East Sussex coast last weekend as a template. There’s something special about marrying in the tiny village you grew up in, looking out of your folks’ house at the church you’ve seen a thousand times before, only this time things are going to be different.

Different in a very, very good way. So, after a drive down to East Sussex I was greeted warmly by Chris, looking more than a bit dapper. I couldn’t help but like him immediately and knew right way we were in for a top wedding day. A short walk down to White Row Cottage took me to Louisa, and breath taken away. She looked absolutely stunning. Nervous, excited, eager. But stunning. This is one good looking couple. But, looks are nothing without substance and here they really aced it. They are loved by many, that much was obvious. Real friends and the warmth of close families. Note perfect. A wedding that had me smiling from start to finish. A wedding that nailed what it means to marry. You can spend all the money in the world on a venue, on a dress, on anything you like, but if the right people aren’t there it’s money wasted. Today we had what mattered (along with sun, rain, mist rolling in from the sea). Today we had Louisa and Chris and their lives together. Just immense. These are wonderful people. It was an absolute honour to be tasked with documenting their wedding day.

I should add that I’ve a big thank you to give to Simon, one of the excellent ushers, for this wedding. He suggested me to Louisa and Chris after I’d photographed his sister’s wedding in 2013 (waves at Claire and Neil). Nice beard action Simon. Doffs cap, and great to see you again.

Louisa and Chris. They did it so well. Carlsberg might as well quit now.
