Lauren and Michael tied the knot at the beautiful Farbridge, nestled in the hills of the Southdowns and surrounded by sheep on the 1st of July 2022. Meeting on Tinder whilst both working in London, Michael wined and dined Lauren with beautifully unique and personalised dates. The pair went on to travel the world together creating endless beautiful memories, and now here they are on their wedding day ready to embark on their next chapter.
Lauren got ready with her best friends from school in a beautiful, quaint air b and b just down the road in Boxgrove. They looked after her, feeding her freshly baked croissants and making her laugh throughout the morning, topping her up with bucks fizz whilst she had her hair and makeup done. Ground Films, wedding videographers were there to capture all these moments and more. Lauren received the most beautiful card from her soon to be husband Michael, which we adored capturing Lauren read. Laurens hair was beautifully crafted into a low bun with lightly curled pieces framing her stunning soft glam makeup.
Lauren and the girls then made their way to Farbridge where Lauren put on her effortless, contemporary dress which had a striking high neck with cut out detail and the most stunning low back. Her look was completed with the most beautiful long veil appliqued with leaves. Ground Films captured the moment Laurens mum did up the perfect satin buttons and Laurens bridesmaids witnessed their stunning best friend dressed as a bride for the first time. West Sussex wedding videographers captured Lauren walk through the picturesque courtyard at Farbridge to the ceremony where Michael was stood eagerly to watch his soon to be wife walk down the aisle, hand in hand with her proud brother. Michael and Laurens friend played as Lauren and her striking bridesmaids dressed in a deep forest green walked down the candle lined aisle.
During the ceremony this perfect pair couldn’t stop smiling at each other as they committed to one another and listened to two beautiful readings performed by their friends and family. West Sussex wedding videographers then captured the pair walk through a tunnel of their guests showering them in homemade pompoms, making for the most epic shots.
After celebrating and catching up with their friends and family in the beautiful grounds of Farbridge, the couple went inside to enjoy their wedding breakfast and speeches. Ground Films captured the beautiful decoration created by Lauren, including her excellent seating arrangement sign, where she had labelled the tables by biscuits and then had positioned jars of said biscuit on the table – this was such a fun and unique idea of which we love to see at Ground Films. The beautiful green and white florals, and long taper candles lined the tables and created an incredible backdrop against the stone walls of Farbridge. Ground Films, award winning wedding videographers captured the excellent speeches performed by Laurens bridesmaid, Laurens mum, Michaels best man and Michael himself, all of which you can hear throughout their wedding film above.
After dinner and garden games, we were able to capture Lauren and Michael with the most epic sunset, all of which you can see throughout their wedding film. The evening ended with their first dance, where they were showered in confetti and Lauren was quite literally swept off her feet! The weather was still incredibly humid, and it meant that everyone enjoyed drinking in the courtyard catching up with one another and sharing wood fired pizza…yumm!
We are so grateful to have been a part of this couples stunning day and we are extremely happy to hear that they are expecting their first baby! We cannot wait to follow their journey as a soon to be 3 (plus a dog)!
