I have photographed a large number of weddings at South Farm and it continues to be a popular and slightly unusual venue. It has a unique mix of elements including farm animals, an old steam engine and a set of restored Romany caravans that can be used as guest accommodation. It’s also set in beautiful grounds in a rural location and has a variety of different areas that can be used for each part of the day.
I started off by photographing Nicki getting ready in the bridal suite – there is always fantastic directional light in here and the upstairs bedroom is stunning with it’s high ceiling and full length windows. The ceremony itself was in the Old Dairy and the evening celebrations in the barn. As you will see from the photographs it rained and rained and rained! So much so that it was hardly fit to venture outside at any point during the day but this did lead to some nice umbrella shots.
I have included a few of my favourite photographs below.
