Ali & Ed | The Gallivant Hotel | Wedding
Gallivant Wedding Photography
I’m actually really happy to be back at work and I can’t wait to share with you the most beautiful Gallivant wedding photography. The Gallivant Hotel Wedding venue is in a beautiful part of the world. Ali and Ed found me through the awesome couple Jen & Brad, whose wedding I photographed earlier this year. I travelled all the way down to Sussex, as Ali and Ed returned to their home town to get wed. It was a hot hot day, and the perfect day for a beach wedding. I started at Ali’s parents house capturing the fun. Cafe des Fleurs put together the most beautiful wedding bouquets and Ali looked so beautiful in her David Fielden gown. It was great to work with Truffle Salon who beautified Ali and B-Maids.
I then jumped in the car and zoomed off to St Mary Star of the Sea Church in central Hastings. I met up with Ed and his best man who looked great in Gresham Blake suits and orange wedding ties.
The Wedding Ceremony
They received a catholic mass during their wedding ceremony and their strong sense of family and friends was very clear. It’s always interesting to see how priests work and he made it very easy for me to take discrete photographs from different points during the ceremony. I always find the ceremony the most amazing time and it’s great to have access to document it.
After celebrations outside the Church we headed to the super stylish Gallivant Hotel in Rye. It was a great find and even worth a visit if you’re in the area.
By this time the heat had reached new levels, so after a few celebratory drinks at The Gallivant we all headed to the beach. There we found more drinks! Along with some treats including personal favourites sausages on sticks. It was great to get outside and enjoy the weather, especially at such a gorgeous location.
Growing up in Wales I’ve never really visited that part of the world before. But I can tell you it beats Aberystwyth. It’s times like these that I love my job. The atmosphere was fun and informal and everyone seemed to e having a great time. These are when great photos are made. We did a few family photos on the beach, before heading back to The Gallivant for more foody goodness. The Nautical theme was pretty cool and the speeches killer. Ed’s brother told the funniest childhood story about him and … well, I probably shouldn’t elaborate further as it is (was) something of a family secret.
Thank you for having me Ali and Ed – it was great to share in your day. On with some of my favourite Gallivant wedding photography.
