I love the variety that wedding photography brings. Each wedding is different. Some are in mansions, hotels, pubs, farms, private residencies, fields. Your world is your oyster when it comes to variety in wedding venues. I love to learn about couples and their personalities. The sort of wedding that they have chosen sometimes is a good indicator as to what they like. Laura and Adam chose a wedding ceremony outdoors that represented them well. The officiant was the father of the groom. They had a steel band. They wrote their own vows to each other. And Laura also sang for Adam, with the help of friends and family. It was all natural and felt that it matched their easy going personality. They had literally organised most things by themselves and most decorations and food had prepared by them or friends and family.Â Whilst I cannot imagine the pressure of organising so much yourself, it was great to see it on the day. Everything had a specific meaning and it all looked fab on the day.
My day started with capturing a few getting ready images of the bride and her bridesmaids before heading for the farm. You can sense a few nerves when I arrived. Logistical nerves more than everything, Adam and the groomsmen making sure that everything was spot on. And it was. Even the weather was on our side and it was a beautiful temperature for an outdoor ceremony.
The format of the day followed a fairly classic wedding day. There was a drinks reception after the ceremony with canapÃ©s. Guests were able to enjoy the surrounding gardens and activities. During this time we also took the opportunity to capture a few family photos. Guests were then invited into the main barn at Loudwater Farm for the wedding breakfast and speeches. A lot effort had been put into place to prepare everything. Nothing was rushed and it was all very friendly and pleasant. The guests were then able to stretch their legs outside and play games while I took the bride and groom for a very short portrait session. The first dance followed after this and I bid them farewell shortly after.
It was a great day for me and it was a pleasure to meet Laura, Adam and their families. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming and I had a genuine great time documenting their wedding day. Below isÂ slideshow that includes some of my favourite images from their wedding wedding and further down are some images extracted from the slideshow (but not all of them) to give you a flavour of their day. I recommend watching the slideshow to music if you get the time. I really enjoyed being the Loudwater farm for the wedding of Laura and Adam. If you are thinking of getting married at Loudwater farm (or any other venue for that matter), I would love to hear from you. Thanks for visiting my website!
