Beth and Shane- Pangdean Barn, Brighton
Beth and Shane met on Tinder 4 years ago and were pretty inseparable from the beginning. I was very excited to travel to Brighton for their relaxed barn wedding.
Sadly weeks before their wedding Beth's bridesmaid and very close friend passed away. It was very important to Beth and Shane to represent and celebrate their dear friend.
They decorated the barn with daisies. Her presence was felt as if she was in every daisy on the day.
The day started at the Grand hotel which overlooked Brighton beach. It was a lovely relaxed morning when Beth was getting ready with her bridesmaids. Shane was getting ready at the Hilton hotel next door. Their ceremony at St Mary's church was a short ride away. Beth wore a stunning mermaid dress by Pronovias. She looked beautiful and radiant as she walked down the isle with her uncle. I loved her bouquet by Kate langdale. Kate's work was just perfect. She produced a very unique bouquet; yellow and white roses with green springs, this worked beautifully with the daisies in her bouquet. Her bridesmaids wore beautiful blue dresses by ASOS. Shane looked equally dapper in his suit by Moss bros. He wore a grey suite with a blue shirt and grey floral tie. They had a traditional Catholic ceremony.
After the ceremony Beth and Shane exited the church to an array of beautiful confetti and made their way to the venue in a white vintage roofless car.
Pangdean Barn was the only venue they viewed. It is an 18th century old barn with an walled garden and it is a working farm. They loved that it was in the countryside channelling their Irish roots yet a stones throw away from Brighton city which made for a fantastic weekend for their guests. Pangdean has so much history, 'we both instantly knew it was our dream venue, not to mention the exceptional staff and of course those fairy lights in the roof of the barn!'
The evening proceedings flowed beautifully from the speeches to fun on the dance floor. Beths's little niece even got on stage and sang Frozen for all the guests.
Beth: knowing a little about your life I know it has not been without its challenges but what has emerged is a beautiful, strong, resilient woman of which your family are proud! Wishing you both all the best for the future and I know you will rock it! Love Rx
