The George in Rye Wedding // Charlotte & Adam

The George in Rye is a beautiful, boutique pub in the pretty town of Rye and is perfect for a winter wedding. Charlotte & Adam thought so too as they held their December wedding there. A wedding which took place on one of the frostiest December days, where the sun was shining, and the beautiful town of Rye was alive with festive spirit – largely because Santa Claus was riding through the town in his sleigh to turn on the Christmas lights, but I’d prefer to think it was because Charlotte and Adam were tying the knot that day.

Places don’t come much cosier than Rye’s boutique hotel, The George in Rye, where the fires were lit and the low timber ceilinged bar was full of Charlotte and Adam’s wedding guests, warming their cockles before walking up the hill to the town hall. Charlotte and her 3 bridesmaids – two of which were heavily pregnant!- got ready at The George, the girls in stunning mink coloured Two Birds dresses, and Charlotte in the most gorgeous Jenny Packham beaded ‘Eden’ dress in platinum, offset with some gold ‘Ginger’ Rachel Simpson shoes. Charlotte also had two very traditional accessories – being the designer and owner of the handmade bridal accessories boutique, Atelier Rousseau, Charlotte is used to making bespoke items for brides, and it was only right that on her own wedding day she should have two of her own creations; a stunning, delicate garter and a silver sixpence for her shoe.

So on to the ceremony at the town hall, which has to be one of the prettiest town halls I’ve photographed in; a tiny square room with grey walls and bright red and gold details, with a wall of windows which bathed the room in winter light. As is traditional with Rye Town Hall weddings, Rex, the town crier, announces the newlyweds and rings his bell as he escorts them through the streets of Rye. This is a great tradition to witness, and Rex, who’s in his 80’s, is an amazing character who you could write a whole blog post about.

Back at The George, guests went inside for mulled Pimms, whilst Charlotte, Adam and I braved the cold for some portraits. Ever the chivalrous photographer, I gave my jacket to Charlotte who was shivering in her slip of her dress. Although a sequinned Jenny Packham number and a bashed up leather jacket was a pretty good look on her… As soon as our fingers went numb, we decided to head back to the hotel, where afternoon tea was waiting. The Georgian Ballroom at The George is stunning, with large antique mirrors with foxed glass and huge chandeliers, and as befitted the season, a twinkling Christmas tree. Between the finger sandwiches and homemade scones were the speeches, and following that, the cake was cut and the dancing began.

A gorgeous day with a gorgeous couple, favourites from Charlotte and Adam’s Rye wedding are below. If you are getting married at either Rye town hall or The George in Rye, and would like to discuss your wedding photography, please get in touch.

    Fantastic post, Lyndsey. I find the composition in many images simply brilliant and also like how you combined street and documentary wedding photography on this one.
