I am so excited to share this amazing blog from our lovely photographer Fiona Mills Art, also featuring our listed venue, Chichester Cathedral! This wedding had a gorgeous winter theme and included my all time favourite Narnia, I love all the details and how much thought has gone into this wedding. It really does have a feel of Narnia and Fiona captured this perfectly.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I do and it offers you lots of inspiration for your very own winter wedding.
Congratulations to the gorgeous couple x


A Winter Wonderland. Lianne and Tom had been planning their winter wedding for some time. Although a major Star Wars fan, Tom’s ideas were reigned in on that theme to make way for the wintery wonder of Narnia. Lianne and Tom got married at the end of November in the newly opened wedding venue The Guildhall in Priory Park, Chichester, West Sussex followed by their reception at The Vicars Hall and The Cloisters in Chichester Cathedral.

Lianne’s mum is a florist and very talented dress maker. All the bridesmaids dresses and flowers were crafted by her own hand as well as the stunningly impressive bridal bouquet which was made up of glittering brooches. Also under mums crafting and Lianne’s ideas for their wedding theme were details using pine needles, holly, lanterns, tea lights, Christmas trees speckled with snow and of course, in true Narnia style, a lamppost at the end of the aisle.

The ceremony was set in The Guildhall, with tall ceilings, windows and just wonderful light. Tom and his groomsmen all wore full Scottish dress complete with sporrans hiding their flasks of whisky and Sgian Dubh in their socks. The reception at The Vicars Hall was equally as decorated ready for an afternoon tea. White twigs with twinkle lights, snowflakes, keys and pine cones continued to set the Narnia theme and guests snacked on Turkish Delight while they waited. You can see that an element of Tom’s design came out in the decor as you look at the cake toppers. Bobble head Hans Solo and Princess Leah in complementary tartan and bridal wear adorned the cake, which Tom prepared to cut with a Scottish long sword.

A DJ and BBQ followed later with us making use of the dramatic architecture and scenery that the dark cloisters gave to create some portraits of the newlyweds.
