Sussex Wedding Photography: Julie & Josh

As we loaded up the car and hit the road that particular Saturday morning, it was raining like crazy and I had resigned myself to my first rainy day wedding (hey, it had to happen sometime!). Approaching Sussex the sky cleared, and I became optimistic, but ultimately the bad weather found us once again… just in time for Julie & Josh’s planned forest ceremony. Rain fell in torrents, and Julie serenely remarked that it was okay, the forest needed the rain more than she needed the forest. A new plan formed, rearrangements were swiftly made…

And that’s how this beautiful, eco-conscious, creative-casual-hippie-chic, vegetarian couple got married in a hunting lodge under the watchful eye of a bear skin.

It’s a great story, and I’m recounting it here because I’m pretty sure that all anyone who was actually at the ceremony is going to remember is how Julie & Josh sang their vows to each other, and we all bawled our eyes out. Seriously.

(Afterwards the sun came out and we got to visit the forest after all.)

This wedding was full of beautiful, personal touches, from the edible flowers that topped our vegetarian meals to the giant mushroom that was the guestbook. There was plenty to love about Julie & Josh’s wedding, so enjoy these images. For best results, listen to the song they sang for their vows as you’re viewing. As we left the site, it came on the radio…
