Nat and Will’s WKDly messy wedding at Farbridge Preston Farm in West Sussex

Nat and Will’s WKDly messy wedding at Farbridge Preston Farm in West Sussex

I absolutely adored Nat and Will from the first time we met and they said they were up for anything (cue dreams of a bridesmaid human pyramid). Will is a firefighter and Natalie is a PE teacher and together they share an athletic zest for life! Natalie got ready in the North Wing of  Cowdray Manor with her many bridesmaids. Nat wore a Maggie Sottero dress and the bridesmaids wore matching navy blue multi-way dresses. At the wedding venue they had set up table football, air hockey and ping pong, with a tournament league board titled "Mrs Bower's PE class". Guests could challenge each other to games and rise up the ranks (or fall!). I recently attended a week long wedding photographers workshop where we were advised to blog images quite sparsely. I do normally love to show a really wide range across a wedding day, but I'm going to start trying to show all killer no filler! Hopefully you still get a great idea of how hilarious and boozy their wedding was!

Their placecards were various favourite alcohols, so Nat had blue WKD and Will had Rekorderlig. The main dinner was burgers because their first date was in a burger joint, and the evening meal was a vintage pizza van and a Bodean's pulled pork stand! I want to directly thank Nats and Will for being up for stuff during the couple shots, I managed to get them to stage dive onto their friends, which ripped the Maggie Sottero dress but like a trooper Nat gave zero F's and proceeded to do the worm later on in the evening and happily vaulted gates and waded through fields of sheep poo barefoot (that last one wasn't my idea!). It was definitely refreshing to have a bride who wasn't fussed about the dress who let me do some cool stuff!
