A very wedding that I attend is unique for many reasons. Every guest and every couple are unique with their own traits, personalities and backgrounds. The venues that they choose for their wedding are also chosen carefully to match the vibe and atmosphere that they want to create. T & M had chosen to have a Farm wedding. M works for a company that has a barn in a working farm that can be used for events. The owner of the company very kindly agreed for T & M to use it for their wedding. As venues go, this could easily be a fully working wedding venue. It is in fact more often than not used for training and corporate events. The bride and groom (and their families) did a great job in decorating it and making it look beautiful for their wedding day.
My day started at the bride’s family home. The bride and her bridesmaids were getting ready. I enjoy capturing these moments as they are always fun and it allows me to get to know people before the ceremony. The bride was very calm and everyone was in good spirits. The sun was shining which was great. After an hour or so, I left for the wedding venue. Everything looked immaculate. The barn is a modern barn, very bright and with beautiful grounds around it. They bride and groom had chosen to have a humanist ceremony. They are usually great as the bride and groom can customise it to some extent to suit their personalities. The bride arrived on time and everything ran smoothly. There were two nice readings from the mums and a hand fasting ceremony. After the ceremony guests were invited outside for drinks and canapes.
One of the highlights, in terms of the wedding venue, has to be its outdoor space. Especially on a nice and warm sunny day. The temperature was just perfect, warm but not too hot. Great for enjoying drinks outside. The grounds include a lake with ducks swimming in it. It all contributes to making the ideal setting for a lovely afternoon. After a confetti shot, the bride and groom milled with their guests. I loved seeing people having a good time together. From parents with their children to old school friend reunited. We will use some of this time for a few selected family photos and a few portraits of the bride and groom as guests find their seats for the wedding breakfast.
The wedding breakfast was carefully planned. It has a barbecue style, with the food cooked outdoors. Guests were also able to sample some nice shots of sloe gin prepared by the mother of the bride. It seemed to go down very well! The wedding breakfast was followed by some short, yet meaningful speeches. Guests were then allowed some free time to roam around the venue and relax.
The evening entertainment was provided by a really good and fun band that had people on the dance floor even before the first dance. They were very energetic and played tunes that made everyone want to join them on the dance floor. The first dance followed after their first set. The dance included some lifts and it they were very well executed. The guests joined the bride and groom on the dance floor and the party was well on its way when I left.
Below are some of my favourite images from their wedding wedding day. T & M were great to wrk with, a really caring and considerate couple. They were very friendly and fun and clearly very much loved by their families and friends. If you are planning a farm wedding in Berkshire (or any other location for that matter) I would love to hear from you! Thanks for reading and visiting my website!
