Scott & Cheryl’s Rustic Themed Wedding at Farleigh

Tuesday, January 17th, 2017

Oh I could have easily added a trillion billion images to this blog, so many shots of such a fantastic wedding.   If i’m honest, I was a little nervous about shooting this wedding, as I wanted to do such a great job for these guys.  I’ve known Scott and his family for years, from my childhood, so it was a real personal pleasure to capture this wedding,  and I felt really honoured to have been asked!!   Plus, it was at the fabulous Farleigh, a super venue that’s dear to my heart, a venue that is so supportive of me, by recommending me on a regular basis, which i’m so grateful for!

So Our lovely Cheryl got ready at home, and considering how many bridesmaids she had, it was such a calm house, and of course if makes my job so easy when they’re all as gorgeous as these lovely ladies!!

With everyone ready and looking stunning, off I went to meet Scott at the church, All Saints in Sanderstead, Surrey.  Good to see you scrub up pretty darn well too Mr!!  Their vows were said, their rings exchanged, and with a lovely ceremony, their happily ever after was off too a flying start!

We arrived at the very brilliant Farleigh, which boasted an amazing rustic makeover.  There wasn’t a single thing that these guys hadn’t thought of!  Hats off to Sam Donovan I beleive, it’s certainly a huge bonus when your sister just so happens to be the wedding co-ordinator at your venue.

After chilling out in the gorgeous sunshine, with drinks, cookies, milkshakes, scones, we were ready to capture our posed photos.

Just lovely.  Off everyone ventured inside to start our gorgeous meal,  the food was delicious (rather fantastic bonus of my job i’d say, is that I get try out the food).  Farleigh has The Inked Chef on board, and his food is Delicious with a big fat capital D!!!  I love this time in the day, shooting from a distance, capturing the fun and laughter while guests mingle and chat at the tables.

Oh look! That last pic is me he he!  Gotta love a guest who steals my camera.  The speeches were great,  tears were certainly shed!!

So, the wedding breakfast came to a close, and everyone ventured outside, the sun was fading, and the funky lights came into action, which made for a lovely atmosphere for the guests, whilst they were entertained by the magician.

And the evening shenanigans were off, with the dancefloor packed, but then I wouldn’t expect anything less when they have the fabulous Dean DJ Elite to keep the music flowing!

Scott and Cheryl, I soooooo enjoyed capturing your wedding, it was an absolute pleasure to be part of your day.  Thanks to Farleigh for looking after me so well.

Thanks for reading, if you’d like to have a chat about the photography for your own day, please do give me a call for a chat.

Danielle & Duncan’s Autumn Wedding At Coltsford Mill

Sunday, January 15th, 2017

I luckily met Danielle & Duncan with all their family at the Coltsford Mill Wedding Fair.  Coltsford Mill is a venue with absolutely everything you could ever need.  A stunning venue with a contemporary barn, set in the grounds of an old Mill, with Lakes and waterfalls, bridges over streams, the list is endless.  I absolutely love working here.

Danielle got ready in the gorgeous cottage set within the grounds of Coltsford. surrounded by her parents and bridesmaids, very peaceful, and really quite a calm morning.   I do love it when a bride gets ready at the same venue, it means I can pop down and spend a lovely bit of time with the groomsmen too.

There are a couple of options where you can get married here, and these guys chose to tie the knot in the Mill Room, a cute cosy experience with the old mill as the backdrop.

It was such a lovely ceremony.  Off we popped outside, the weather was kind to us, and we were able to take all our pictures outside in the grounds.

I was absolutely in my element shooting Danielle and Duncan, I really could have taken images of them for the entire day.  They are stunning, and get along so well.  We didn’t venture very far off into the grounds, as the ground was a little muddy, so we stayed close to the barn, and made use of the beautiful autumnal colours.

 

After our posed images we ventured into the main barn, for our meal.  A bit of a bonus with my job, is that I get to taste all the scrumptious food, and trust me, at Coltsford Mill, it is always delicious.

The speeches were really funny, Dad, Duncan and his 2 best men did really well, and the laughter was loud.
