‘Every day you make me a better person, every day you make me smile…’


It was third time lucky for Adam and Louise as they had to postpone their wedding twice because of the pandemic and they realised a few weeks before the wedding that they wanted wedding films to remember their special day and to capture all the moments they might miss.

They got married at Blackstock Country Estate in Hellingly, near Eastbourne in East Sussex. The minute they walked in they knew it was the dream venue for them… they got married in the Tudor Barn, overlooking rolling countryside and green fields. It really is an awesome venue with everything you need from a great room for make-up and hair, to the ceremony, reception and photoshoot opportunities. If you go down to the bottom gate you’ll even see some curious llamas and alpacas in the next field!

With 39 guests, made up of family and close friends, they fitted perfectly into the Tudor Barn for the ceremony, which was decorated with white trailing flowers. The bride wore a gorgeous fitted lace wedding dress from Essence of Australia.I later found out both of them had been taking instagram photos of their feet throughout their relationship and it was therefore only fitting they had the soles of their wedding shoes engraved especially!

Tom Butterworth was their solo guitarist for their ceremony, and then later Richie and Josh rocked up to sing at the reception, and their first dance was to Your Song by Elton John. Unlimited Promotions provided the music for the evening dancing where the guests came into their own with amazingly skilful rock ‘n roll dancing!

Adam and Louise made a gorgeous couple and they were so lovely. They’re so obviously made for each other and you could really see this at their wedding in the romantic and heartfelt vows and speeches at both the ceremony and the reception not just by the groom but also from their relatives and best man.

The little flower girls, Edie, Adeline and Sophie, were beautiful in their white dresses and at every point of the day you saw awe and wonder in their faces as they laughed and played throughout the day.

After a couple of really difficult years with the pandemic, Adam and Louise wanted everyone to have fun and enjoy being together again, and they clearly did this in spades!

Chances are if you’re thinking about having an Isle of Harris wedding or the Isle of Lewis, you’re from Australia, the USA or the UK and have some Scottish blood in your family.

I’m sure my mother’s Scottish ancestry is part of why I love and feel so drawn to the Isle of Harris and Lewis.

Turquoise seas on beaches that rival the white sands of the Caribbean, the romantic windswept landscape and the feeling of tranquillity and peacefulness are just a few of the reasons that the Isle of Harris and Lewis are perfect for UK destination weddings.
