Newick Wedding


Although it was chilly this weekend the sun shone and it was perfect weather for an autumnal English wedding.

Liz Alexander and Simon Cook were married at St Mary's church in Newick, East Sussex. It is where the Bride grew up and her and the bridesmaids prepared for the ceremony at her parents house a stones throw from the church.

For me there was very much a feeling of 'deja vu' as Liz was herself the bridesmaid at her bridesmaid Nicky's wedding last year which I was lucky enough to photograph. In fact, one of Simon's two Best Men, Neill, was the Groom at Nicky's wedding... er, which makes him Nicky's husband.

The Bride's car deserves special mention; it was a navy blue 1930's Aston Martin Lagonda.

The reception was held on the family farm, just outside the village, in a large marquee which was,along with the excellent food, supplied by Super Event from nearby Heathfield. The beautiful displays of gypsophila on the tables were the responsibility of the Bride's Mother, Jane, and the Brighton based florist Scent Floral Arts.

Simon revealed in his Groom's speech that the suit he was wearing was the very same one that his father had worn at his wedding some 35 years earlier!.
