Family farm wedding in Shropshire

Family farm wedding

It seems so long ago that Kirsty and Richard asked me to be their family farm wedding photographer. Kirsty and Richard are such a great couple, they are going to be having a super relaxed wedding day indeed. The church service is going to be held at Holy Trinity Church, Leaton in Shropshire. A beautiful church, but unfortunately the vicar has his own rules! So I can only photograph the wedding ceremony from the back! Always ask in advance and explain how important it is to have you wedding photographer as close by as possible, of course I will be in one spot, capturing the service . moments , tears and laughter.

The day started at Kirsty’s family home just on the outskirts of Shrewsbury.  Kirsty and her bridesmaids were all busy getting ready and drinking champagne when I arrived,  a truly relaxed atmosphere and everyone was just having fun which is what a wedding day should be all about. The make up was being done by the amazing Natalie Ravenscroft who you can find here.

It was just a short  15 – 20 minutes drive to get to their church for the wedding ceremony.  After the service we decided to do the confetti shots back at the farm, which wasn’t that far away either, but I am glad I did the engagement shoot there as I think the sat nav may have had trouble! If you would like to see their pre wedding shoot then check out the link here.

The farm was all set up and ready for the wedding party ahead,  with a camp site for guests and one of the barns was fully decorated  and a band set up for the dancing later that evening. But in the meantime family and friends were busy cooking on the most impressive BBQ, burgers, sausage, salad you name it! So while the food was being cooked, we did the confetti shots whilst everyone was all in the same place and then onto the front lawn of the farm house for the group shot. We did make time for a couple of portraits, but Kirsty and Richard really wanted more natural  and relaxed images of all of their guests at the party.  The weather was really good, and a good job as it was a bbq, festival theme wedding.

Again the speeches were just held in the barn for whoever wanted to listen to them, which they all did. Following the speeches a quick cutting of the cake and then the first dance. This was perfect way to celebrate a wedding in a relaxed way at a family farm wedding.

My documentary style of wedding photography means you can just enjoy yourselves, while I do my thing. I want your images to be natural, emotional and totally YOU! If this sounds like something you’d love, get in touch to check if I'm available to join you on your wedding day.
