Newhaven Fort Wedding with Clifftop Portraits

Laura & Sam were quite a last-minute booking for me – they only contacted me less than a month before the wedding! But I am so glad they did. I LOVED these two, and so did the camera!

Laura & Sam’s wedding had a lot of DIY input, even down to one of the biggest elements of the day – the dress!! Laura has her own small business doing alterations and has worked on many a bridal gown before, so she thought she would make her own. She did an amazing job! Laura, her mother and her bridesmaids got ready at her home before heading to St Michael’s Church – where many of Sam’s family have also been married, so this was even more special for the two of them. Their ceremony was followed by the longest confetti line I have ever seen!

With the reception being at Newhaven Fort – such a unique venue – we had absolutely stunning views for the couple portraits! I couldn’t believe what a beautiful day it was too, not a whisper of fog in sight and we were almost at the end of October! With the dining and dancing in a pre-fabricated 1940s steel Romney Hut, this was a truly authentic and unusual venue.

The evening was full of emotional speeches and the groom struggled to keep it together at one point! But once all the thank-you’s and love-you’s were out of the way the dancing began – and EVERYONE was straight up to the dance floor! This wedding was one of my favourites to date, I really did enjoy it from beginning to end. It was so hard to narrow down the photos for this blog post, I enjoyed this wedding from beginning to end!
