I had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful, intimate wedding in Hampshire recently. It was a lovely day, they met their closest family and friends at their local church for the ceremony and then headed back to their family farm on a tractor driven by the groom's brother. I love that they opted for an unconventional mode of wedding transport which was special to them. The trailer on the back of the tractor had pretty white bunting around the top, leaves up the sides and bales of hay for the newly weds to sit on.
They made the wedding very unique to them by doing most things themselves; they dressed their back garden with bunting, bales of hay, string lights, and a marquee with lots of cool decorations. The bride has her own craft business so she made a lot of items herself including the acrylic place names and their cake topper.
When they arrived back on the farm we took family photos in a lovely open field in their back garden. They were only allowed to invite a limited amount of people due to covid restrictions however they didn't let it stop them from having a great wedding day. After the photos, everyone sat in their places inside the marquee and took out their picnics. Everyone had to bring their own food due to covid, I thought the picnic idea was lovely and went with the relaxed, intimate feel of the wedding. Then came the speeches from the father of the bride, the father of the groom and the best man. They were heartfelt and funny, exactly what you'd hope for from a wedding speech.
Then nearer to sunset I took the bride and groom off alone to walk around the grounds. It gives the newly weds a bit of time alone to talk away from the crowd whilst we find good locations for portraits. I felt extremely lucky as their farm was very picturesque so there were lots of options for photos. We chose the path leading to their house and in front of the house itself.
They rejoined their family and friends and had a wonderful night together. I will attach a few more photos below.
