A Vintage Oaks Farm Wonderland for Michelle & Tom

Friday, September 27th, 2013

I’ve been meaning to write this blog for sometime now, Michelle & Tom got married in August, at one of my favourite venues Oaks Farm in Shirley, Croydon.  It’s a fabulous venue, and to top it off the weather was gorgeous enough to have an outside ceremony.  And what a lovely couple!! Michelle & Tom met at school, so being child hood sweethearts with their 2 little boys, finally decided to tie the knot.  A great couple, and the relationship between them was lovely to watch through my lens!

Michelle got ready at the Selsdon Park Hotel, in a lovely spacious room.  Michelle’s hair was created by Sam Morgan of Chrysalis Hair & Beauty, and did a fantastic job, like she does everytime I have the pleasure of working with her.

Shelly from Muscari Whites florist, as always created the most spectacular sites.  Shelly was given free reign to create anything she liked within Michelles colour scheme, and the ideas just flowed.  See for yourself, there was something different to look at everytime you turned your head!!

This wedding was an absolute cracker, full of really great characters, with banter flowing and giggles and laughter all around.  Have a look for yourself, just lovely!!…….

Glen & Elaine Wed at Oaks Farm

Wednesday, February 20th, 2013

Back once again to one of my very favourite venues, Oaks Farm in Shirley.  Tucked away in a little pocket in Croydon, this little Gem of a venue is overflowing with personality, and opportunities, to create the most amazing backdrop!

I met Glen and Elaine at a wedding fair, and felt i’d already built a lovley rapport with them both.

Bridal preparations were held at the Orchard Cottage in the grounds of Oaks farm.  I was also able to pop over to capture of few images of the guys to, as absolutely everything was being held at the same venue……

Just a beautiful ceremony, and already the adorable personalities of everyone at this wedding are shining through… great crowd!!!

So as everyone spills outside, to mingle and have drinks, and as we begin to take our family shots, the weather can’t make it’s mind up!!  One minute it wants to rain, and the next the sun wants to make an appearance! Big pain in the backside, as we’re in and out, but no-one seems to mind all the guests are finding it quite funny!! Thankfully!! You do feel a bit guilty as a photographer, that it’s not just running smoothly, but thats one thing I certainly have no control over – the darn british weather!!!

And then of course, some shots of our gorgeous couple…..

So back into the barn we go, for a gorgeous meal…….

So, the rain had finally given in, and we were left with the most beautiful early evening sunlight!!!  Of course, another couple of cheeky shots were captured as everyone chilled out……

The evening party started, and I can honestly say, I have never seen a dance floor so packed before, and packed within minutes.  I absolutely love it, the energy coming from this crowd of fantastic characters was just great.  As soon as they played ‘Candy’ that was it, everyone was on there feet…….

It was an absolute pleasure photographing this wedding, and I sincerely hope we all meet again soon.

Amanda & Andrew Return from Down Under to tie the knot

Sunday, February 17th, 2013

Back in July, Amanda & Andrew returned from Australia, to marry in the company of all their friends and family.  A wedding that had been totally organised by Amandas mum, she’d given her the type of ideas that she wanted, and her Mum cracked on with it, what a lovely lady!!

It was a gorgeous day, held at one of my favourite venues, Oaks Farm in Shirley, Surrey.  A perfect venue, with everything you ever need!

Bridal preparations were held at Amandas parents house……

I knew this was going to be such a gorgeous day,  I’d already spent the morning with some genuinly really lovely characters, with lots of laughter!  They were all so relaxed and so photogenic.  So it was no suprise, to arrive at Oaks Farm to find some more loveable guys!

As the friends and family were ushered in, we waited for the arrival of our gorgeous bride……

And then some images of our lovely lovely couple…. I could work with these 2 forever!!  The bond/relationship between them was fantastic…..

Then onto the reception, with lots of giggles while the wine flowed….

I love summer weddings,  the light just before the 1st dances is just simply beautiful.  It’s a fantastic time to take some more images, and often quite nice to capture people mingling, or to get some shots of your guests with their families……

And then onto the evenings shananigans!!!  A fantastic evening was underway within seconds!!!….

This is definately going to go down as one of my favourite weddings…. purely for the laughter and the loveable characters!!!

Jean and Andrew marry at Oaks Farm Barn, Shirley

Monday, April 23rd, 2012

It’s funny, when I shoot a wedding, it’s not neccessarily the venue, or the details that make a wedding special (although I must say this wedding had it all!!!)… for me, it’s the people and their gorgeous characters.  Jean and Andrew were a fantastic couple, and all of their children also had lovely personalities….. It was an absolute pleasure for me to share their day with them.

April showers were once again firmly making an appearance, and the day started off looking like this!!

Oaks Farm Barn situated in Shirley has everything you could ever want as a venue, definately one of my favorite venues.

And then my lucky rain angel who looks out for me, sorted out the weather, and made it possible to cover all my lovely shots outside!! , and this time I thought i’d use the more rusticy side of the venue for a few shots for a different change.

                                  

I wish you all the happiness in the world guys, not that you need it….. you make a fantastic couple xxx

If you are also getting married soon, please take a look at my wedding gallery, and I hope to chat with you soon.  Take care…. Pebble x
