A Mature Wedding Story
This small and intimate Maybridge Community Church wedding down in Worthing, West Sussex was different from your average wedding in a number ways. After all, it’s not everyday you get asked to be the wedding photographer for a couple who are in their 70’s – as Elisabeth and Pete were.
The couple had met at Maybridge Community Church just 6 months earlier and after a whirlwind romance decided to tie the knot at the same church. As the wedding was going to a low key and intimate affair, the couple wanted a discreet and unobtrusive approach to their special day.
As I had photographed Elisabeth’s granddaughter Imogen’s wedding day to Seb, she knew this was exactly how I documented weddings as a wedding photojournalist – so was only too happy to oblige when asked.
Bridal Preparations in Worthing, West Sussex
The bridal preparations definitely had a reassuring sense of familiarity about them – they were at exactly the same family home in Worthing, West Sussex where I had documented Imogen’s bridal preparations too.
It was nice to see Imogen and her sisters again, as they helped Elisabeth now prepare for her own special day with a few laughs and amusing moments.
Maybridge Community Church Wedding Ceremony
Maybridge Community Church is a friendly, informal all-age Worthing church and the very place where Elisabeth and Pete met, as part of the congregation. So it was only fitting they should also have their wedding there.
The ceremony was low key and informal, the highlight being Imogen and her younger sister performing a song during the service.
Catching Up With A Previous Wedding Couple
After the wedding service was over, Elisabeth had a relaxed and informal buffet for the small number of family and friends who had attended the wedding.
During this time I was able to catch up with Imogen and Seb and see how they were now getting on as husband and wife, a number of years later.
Elisabeth and Pete’s day was sweet and informal and a reminder to us all, that it’s never too late to discover love in life. S here’s a few other photos from their Maybridge Community Church wedding.
