A fairground-themed whimsical wedding – Harriet and Sean Part 1: The Ceremony

It’s not often that I get a wedding submission that makes me weep through looking at the pictures! There’s just something about the look between these two that just says “we’re going to last forever.” I actually welled up. A lot. I know I often focus on detail but for the most part of this two-part piece, it’s the couple that really gripped me. I’m no photography buff either, but Rebecca from Catwalk Wedding captured all the right moments beautifully. To me, this is art. So without further ado, here’s Harriet to tell you all about her big day:

“We got married at the Weald and Downland Open Air museum (Singleton) and had our reception at Pump Bottom Farm in Apuldram ( it is currently on the market but they are still running events and hope to sell it to someone who will take the weddings on.”

“I grew the flowers myself and mum helped me put them together as bouquets on the morning of the wedding. The dress (and the bridesmaid dresses) were from Chic Boutique down the North Laines in Brighton.” (Shabby Chic Bride interjection – I have a shorter version of that dress – see my Twitter profile pic, got it at Brick Lane market). “The suits were mostly from M&S (Sean’s jacket was from Wakefields) but mixed and matched to suit each person. The cakes were made by my mum Tammy Cherriman (the most amazing cake maker in the world!)”

“The Gallopers (carousel) was provided and run by the Harris family from Ashington (they own a whole fairground) and the ice cream stall was by a company called the Tea Set based in Steyning”
