A beautiful rustic inspired Sussex Wedding at Highdown Vineyard with pretty cream and brown details

Today I am thrilled to share a beautiful rustic inspired Sussex Wedding at Highdown Vineyard with pretty cream and brown details.

Images were captured by Joanna Cleeve Photography.

Joanna says of the couples day…


Nestled in the heart of the South Downs, Highdown Vineyard not only makes delicious wine, but surrounded by beautiful countryside, also provides the perfect venue for weddings.

This made it the ideal choice for Danni and Laurie’s special day.

Taking place on the 14th July, the sun shone down as the pair both got ready to say their vows.

Both wearing elegant fish tail ivory dresses, Danni and Laurie held simple summer inspired bouquets whilst walking down the aisle before a romantic love filled ceremony.

The couple then took to the grounds of the vineyard for a selection of intimate shots, as well as some fun family and football photos.

Further beautiful images were captured with a vintage VW Campervan, before the wedding party joined together for a tasty wedding breakfast and entertaining speeches.

The day was completed with Danni and Laurie’s first dance and stunning sunset photos they will cherish for a lifetime.


I hand over to gorgeous Bride Laurie…


How did you meet?

We both worked together at Butlins (Bognor Regis).

We were best friends for months and hid our feelings from each other until eventually we couldn’t keep it in anymore.

Tell us about the Proposal…

We got engaged on the beach in Egypt (Sherm El Sheikh) on holiday on September 11th 2015.

Tell us about your wedding planning journey…

We found the experience very stressful, however very exciting!!

We had massive amounts of help from family members which made it easier of us.

Any special touches?

On our wedding day Danni hired a singer and song writer to turn her speech into a song, which we will cherish this forever.

What was the theme /colour palette of your Big Day?

Our theme was rustic, creams, browns and white.

What was the best bit of your day?

The moment we exchanged vows and we said to each other we finally did it.

What advice would you give to other couples getting married?

Just relax and enjoy the day!! Try and take everything in because the day goes really quick.

Just remember this is the best day of your life.
