These Brookfield Barn Mannings Heath photos are a testament to how incredible this wedding day really was. From the stunning train on O’s wedding dress, to the gorgeous and unique details for their wedding breakfast. It was perfection.
It was so lovely to see them again after their engagement photographs at Seven Sisters, which turned out just as beautiful as their special day!
Kelsie is just amazing we cannot recommend her enough. She did everything she said she was going to do. She remembered all of our families names and their relationships with each other. We are not usually comfortable in front of the camera but Kelsie made it feel easy and captured the most beautiful photos of us. Not only were we impressed with Kelsie but our friends and family kept mentioning how brilliant she was all day. She is a ray of sunshine who fit right in with everyone. After getting our photos back so promptly, we were blown away with the quality and editing. She really captured the fun of our day.Ryan
Thank you so much, we would truly recommend Kelsie to anyone.
Brookfield Barn Mannings Heath Photos
As a barn wedding photographer in Sussex, Brookfield Barn is one of my favourites. Especially since the recent renovations that took place last year. Elegance meets rustic charm comes to mind! And I am so here for it!
Plus their in-house catering on the barbecue in the outdoor kitchen tastes incredible! Though it does make a fair bit of smoke – which can be tricky for family and group portraits. So it’s good to get these done early so that there isn’t any smoke wafting into your portraits.
Getting Ready at Brookfield Barn Wedding Venue in Sussex
O+R both got ready at Brookfield Barn but R was not fussed with having getting ready photographs taken, so I did a few with him before the ceremony.
That meant my attention was with the ladies for most of the morning. O looked absolutely stunning when I arrived and her dress went on so easily.
The bridal suite for getting ready is so light and bright it makes for gorgeous wedding photographs.
Outdoor Ceremony at Brookfield Barn Mannings Heath
Though the weather was looking a little iffy, R+O were able to have the outdoor wedding ceremony of their dreams. R had bets he wouldn’t cry, but I’ve got a trick up my sleeve that gets grooms almost every time! O really wanted him to weep, so we deployed my tactic and you can definitely tell R is welling up. The best man even cried!
I loved that they had an upbeat song for their recessional, and boogied on down the aisle after getting married!
Drink Reception and Portraits at Brookfield Barn
After the confetti toss in front of Brookfield Barn, we started with group portraits. We knew there was a risk of smoke from the outdoor kitchen (and rain!) so we dived right into their photographs.
R+O had a lot of family requests, so I’m sharing just a few of my favourites as well as their couple portraits that we took on the old golf course. I am so delighted they’ve left the grass grow long. It makes for really beautiful photographs!
Before we went to the other side of the pond, we had a quick look around the wedding reception decor. That way the venue could get the guests all seated whilst the videographer and I took some couple portraits.
Wedding Breakfast at Brookfield Barn
To Have and To Hire did an amazing job decorating Brookfield Barn for the wedding breakfast. The chandelier looked absolutely stunning.
Brookfield Barn Wedding Photos of The Couple
After the couple finished dessert the light was looking incredible. Golden hour wedding photographs were really important to O+R. So whilst the portraits early were done in about 5 minutes, we spent a good 15 minutes with the videographer in the gorgeous light.
