Dara and Jamie got married at The Secret Barn in Sussex. They chose The Secret Barn because they didn’t want anywhere particularly showy, and loved the idea of having somewhere where their friends could camp overnight.

Dara got ready at her mum’s. There I met Bird. I loved meeting Bird, Dara’s sister Leah’s budgie. Bird has forgotten how to fly so gets around by climbing up everything using his feet and beak. He’s so sweeeeet! I loved how he sat on Dara’s shoulder as she played the piano.

Dara’s dad’s drove her to the ceremony in his purple camper van. They had their ceremony in the orchard of The Secret Barn on a typical British summers day of bright sunshine and torrential rain at times. Their wedding celebrant was the friend who had introduced Dara and Jamie to each other when they were at school; they have been childhood sweethearts since they were 14. 🙂 Freaking awesome. Dara never wears dresses and told Jamie she wouldn’t for their wedding either so it was great seeing the surprise on his face when she turned up in a dress. During the ceremony they read vows they’d written themselves. The reception was in the barn in the afternoon, which they’d decorated with multi coloured lanterns and rainbow streamers, because they love colour, and they’d encouraged their family and friends to turn up in snazzy, bright clothes. Some of their closest friends played their own DJ sets towards the end of the night. They had their own DJ stage name ‘DJ Pink Fizz’ and lived up to the task of making almost 100 people dance the night away.

‘We just spent the last couple of hours laughing and smiling at all the photos. So many gems. You really captured the day (and the madness of our friends) so well. We cannot thank you enough!’ Dara and Jamie.
