D.I.Y. weddings are it seems getting more commonplace and well if you’ve got a nice farm, a bit of land and want to go to town making your own details for the event then why not?
It was a joy shooting this wedding and hopefully if you look at all the handmade, homemade details you’ll see why. That was only half the reason though, the lions share of the joy was watching a great couple really enjoy what was their event.
Perhaps the hottest day of 2015 didn’t deter the bride and groom. On a day where everyone all but cooked under a bright sun and cloudless sky, they bounced on space hoppers, played an epic game of rounders after sunset, danced a ceilidh the likes of which I’ve rarely seen, jumped at the chance to walk into a corn field and have some sunset photographs done and generally loved every minute of their wedding day, wearing a smile on their faces as they did.
Across the road, or should I say very small lane from the bride’s parent’s house was the church, a short walk into the garden took you through an orchard into a field equipped with marquee. Gorgeous flowers, painstaking amounts of bunting, lanterns, sign posts, camping area, showers and of course a fully stocked marquee awaited the guests, complete with a very popular sweetie laden dresser.
Once there the fun began, a lovely buffet meal was laid on by Serendipity Street, followed by a cake fest provided by the guests and cooling afternoon ice creams laid on by Serendipity Street. A lemonade stand stood at hand and free bottled beers were provided. Speeches took place outdoors under the blue sky, and were followed by a great evening of Ceilidh dancing. I took the couple off to a local hall earlier in the day which they and a number of guests were staying again a stones throw from the farm, the large and ancient hall building made for great photographs before heading back to the relaxed atmosphere at the farm. A great sunset over again an adjacent corn field made for a great opportunity for some more photographs before heading back to an evening game of twilight rounders as the firepit and outdoor candles were lit and the guests campsite began to be illuminated by fairy lights.
A great day with great involvement of the guests all of which I take my hat off for dancing a frenetic Ceilidh for the whole evening regardless of the hot weather.
I hope you enjoy having a look at some of the photographs from this great wedding and will consider getting in touch if you need a South Norfolk Wedding Photographer.
