All Saints Clevedon and Seawall Farm
Kelly & Dan

Mid-September found me on a farm along the coast West of Bristol for Kelly and Dan’s wedding. Other than the ceremony being at the Church of All Saint’s down the road in Clevedon, everything else took place here.

They did a fantastic job of converting one of their barns into an area for dinner and dancing. Adding to this, the pitch of the barn was so high it had a wonderful dramatic openness to it.

I found myself lying down in a field of cows, trying to ‘talk horsey’ and witnessing some epic cider hoarding under the tables that made me feel quite proud.

All in all, this was a non-stop feature-filled day of love and laughter for everyone. I had a great time, here are some more from their day:

College Farm Norfolk Wedding

College Farm Norfolk
Laura, Adam…. and Jack Brock – Confetti Pony

Here is Laura and Adam’s big bash from early May at College Farm in Norfolk, there’s a lot of photos here, but there’s so many great ones I had to leave them in!

This was my first time at College Farm, it’s a wonderful country venue with several distinct garden spaces around it, the whole site is very secluded.

I started my day with Laura at Vicarage House just down the road in Great Hockham. It’s more of a mansion than your typical house though and there was a massive amount of space for everyone to get ready before leaving for the farm.

Once at the farm Laura’s father parked alongside the field of Alpaca’s and the bridal party started to walk down to the outdoor ceremony area where the guests were waiting for the blessing to take place.

This wasn’t a strictly human wedding party, we had several instances of floof as a part of the procession and once they were all in place Laura’s father rowed her across the lake down to an teary eyed Adam.

After the blessing I had the pleasure of being part of the most epic confetti experience I’ve ever had. Confetti was handed out en masse via Jack the confetti pony who stayed around for most of the reception and with 140 guests there was a LOT of confetti to be thrown. Honestly, I’ve never seen so much confetti in. my. life. With a confetti dump of the remaining amounts at the end. Perfect!

 

Laura and Adam wanted their reception to be like a village fete, so after the initial meet and greet with canapes along with some family photos at the back of the house the Fete was officially announced with a ribbon cut and everyone was treated to a Coconut Shy, Splat the Rat, Space / Pony hopper racing, Welly Wanging and a Ferret run along with other things.

Halfway through this Laura, Adam and family headed into the house for their legal I-do’s and then we went for couple photos, speeches (where Adam’s mum started rapping) and then dinner followed.

We were there for most of the night, the band killed it and everyone was high on life the rest of the night. A perfect, high energy and free spirited wedding full of love. As it should be x

A West Peckham Village Wedding
Anna & Ben

Anna and Bens’ wedding in West Peckham was themed around their surroundings, an Apple orchard. With table names based around differing types of apple and a lot of the outdoors being brought inside strewn across the beams of their marquee and on the tables. As all this was on the grounds of Anna’s family home the scene was being set for a wonderful day surrounded by their family and friends.

I started the day there and bounced between St Dunstan’s Church in the village to cover both sides of the preparations.

What made this wedding especially nice was Anna’s father is the vicar at St Dunstans so after the Bentley dropped her at the church her brother walked Anna down the aisle where Dad was waiting.

It made the ceremony particularly family and community orientated and myself, I positioned myself poorly under the loudest choir member and my ears were ringing….!

After, we headed back to the marquee for drinks and photos. I was spoilt here for backdrops and even the rain, when it came, threw it down late enough to not get in the way for the reception and the broken cloud cover gave us respite from the sun and it looked great in the resulting images.

In the evening we had a Cèilidh that everyone took part in.

This was one of those family, fun summer day weddings in an ideal setting and lovely people. I ended the day with a few shots by the apple trees and some of my lights before heading home, exhausted!

Here are some more images from their day:

A Farm Wedding in Buckinghamshire
Georgina & Will

Farm Wedding Photography‘I love cows’ was one of the first thing Georgina said to me over the phone when talking about her wedding. ‘My sister is painting cow table names and in the field next to the marquee all the cows will be there’.

And so they were.

Farm Wedding PhotographyGeorgina and Will said their vows at St Mary’s in the picturesque village of Leckhampstead in Buckinghamshire. This was a big farm wedding with 180 guests so as you would expect the church was packed with a few of the guests standing.

After the ceremony we went to the family farm in Akeley.

As you would expect the whole area is very good for photos, we went over to a small orchard for the shots of them both and covered the key family formals in the family garden whilst all the guests arrived across the road.

Farm Wedding PhotographySpecial mention goes to Sarah Spade, the Ukelele Lady who, along with two others provided great entertainment during the reception.
