Glen & Elaine Wed at Oaks Farm

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 lovely 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.
