Katherine & Rob
Farbridge Barn Wedding Photography
Katherine and Rob celebrated their beautiful Farbridge wedding a couple of weekends ago. We basked in the long awaited sunshine, saved perfectly for the bank holiday weekend. I was lucky to take on double duties of wedding guesting and Farbridge Barn wedding photography. My fiancé Chris had met Katherine 12 years ago when he was backpacking around Australia and since then we have all become good friends. For my first wedding of 2021 I was hired to take candid photos in a strictly documentary style, meaning not a group photo or couple portrait in sight. Their Farbridge Barn wedding photography was a relaxed affair which matched their intimate and easy-going plans with a leisurely 4pm start for the 30 guests. We were able to spend most of the day outside due to the glorious weather, on the hottest day of the year to date. In fact, it was so warm that the buttercream on the cake melted and a fresh layer of fondant had to be re-applied.
Katherine dazzled in an elegant fit and flare lace gown, with a plunging back v detail. Katherine’s look was finished off with her lightly tousled brunette locks in a half-up and half-down do. This complimented the radiant make-up also by Styled By Natalie. We have all heard the rhyme and something blue ordinarily refers to an item worn by the bride. However, the Rob decided to wear a fresh, pale blue blazer jacket, in a linen fabric, accompanied by a complimentary pale fawn chino. The entire scheme was brought together with blue hydrangeas which had splatters of blue, ivory and green foliage in whimsical floristry from Three Wild Flowers. The personal touches continued with place names in the form of china mugs with guests names on, with tea and coffee doubling up as a wedding favour. For the younger guests a wedding themed activity book – Not only a lovely take away from the day, but a fantastic way to keep the children entertained. Sparkle Me Photobooth kept all the guests amused before everyone enjoyed watching the first dance (al-fresco) accompanied by music from The Penny Kings.
This was the first time I photographed a Farbridge wedding, and it did not disappoint! A beautiful contemporary venue with traditional barn elements and a pretty courtyard with onsite accommodation. There was a clever use of drapes which separated the space and created a more intimate ambiance. For this wonderful couple, the celebrations continued the next day with a garden party, street food and a second occasion for Katherine to wear her stunning dress. Whilst for Chris and I we returned to Saddlers B&B – a fantastic local B&B for, which we would highly recommend for those going to a Farbridge wedding. As the summer heatwave looks set to continue, I hope you enjoy looking back through this album which captures the splendour of a summer wedding.
