I love to share our advertisers wedding experiences at our ‘Truly Quirky Wedding Venues’. Clare of FitzGerald Photographic East Sussex Wedding Photographer, explains why she loves The Bell Inn Ticehurst as much as I do . . .
I’ve been lucky enough to have photographed four weddings at The Bell in Ticehurst over the past 2 years. I say lucky because the first time I visited with Ali & Jon for a pre wedding venue meeting I knew it was my kind of place!
Whenever I’m at a new venue I always think about if it’s the sort of place I would want to get married at myself; not that I have any intentions of doing so again of course! My husband, Marcus, & I got married in the Kruger National Park, surrounded by the wild of Africa, an alternative choice of venue; I suppose that’s why I love The Bell Inn so much. The moment you enter there is a warmth to the place, from the outside this pub is like most other country pubs, once inside it’s full of random touches of unique charm; from the Snug, long wood table in the coach house, Edison lighting, bulls head and staircase leading to the Big Room that wraps round a tree. Not forgetting of course the now infamous men’s toilets, pictured below. As a supporting role to a wedding this venue is full of quirky character, couples getting married here really don’t need to do much more than bring themselves and their guests.
The beauty of this venue is that it also includes accommodation, ideal for shooting bridal prep and guests staying over after the party. Now these aren’t just any old rooms, each one is individual and reflective of the interior style of the venue as a whole. In the past year the venue has continued to evolve adding hobbit-esque lodge rooms; including the Love Nest for the happy couple to retire to at the end of the night. Along with the beautiful ever changing landscaped garden used for drinks receptions.
As well as the quirky charm of the venue it also has a fab team of friendly staff on hand to manage the day smoothly, which isn’t just a bonus for you as a Bride & Groom but also from my point of view as a supplier.
I simply love shooting weddings at The Bell in Ticehurst as there are so many photo opportunities whether it’s interior décor, candid or couple shots. The Bell is an ideal venue for relaxed couples whose own personality compliments the surroundings.
I look forward to returning again very soon; find out more about the couples I’ve already had the pleasure of photographing at The Bell in Ticehurst;
