What a summer! 2022 was by far the craziest, most amazing year of my business. It challenged me in new ways and I loved every minute. Now that autumn has arrived, I am catching up on sleep, blogging and all things admin!
But I am not here to talk about my year, I am here to show you the beautiful wedding of Alex and Thomas at Primrose Hill Farm. Nestled in the beautiful Cotswolds, Primrose Hill Farm exudes class, rustic countryside and farmhouse elegance. Every time I see the picturesque farmhouse as I drive into the venue I get all giddy with excitement knowing I’m in for an amazing day.
Alex and Thomas’ was just that, they’re two of the loveliest, laid back people I have ever met. Whenever I have that pre-wedding chat with couples it’s always a delight to hear their plans and when they have something unique up their sleeve it just add’s to my excitement… “we just want our guests to have an amazing day, great food and an epic dance floor, plus we’re holding a ceilidh!” and let me tell you all of those criteria were met… and then some!! The party was something else!
Bridal preparations at the farmhouse were seriously chill. I found Alex and her bridesmaids in bed having a good old chin wag! I spent some time capturing the details as every detail had been thought of. The white and green florals by Flower Thyme with accents of gold styling even carried through to their handmade wedding rings! From Alex’s pre-loved Savin London Dress to the cake made by a very talented family member, everything was thought out beautifully.
The church ceremony was really personal, as it was held at their family village church in Little Kineton, where everyone gathered to see the pair share their vows. The vicar has a few analogies up his sleeve and made what can be quite a serious affair something quite humorous.
The newly weds exit the church into a flurry of confetti. I always tell my couples to buy plenty, more than you think, and my goodness did Alex and Tom listen… I could hardly see them through the mass of white paper as it floated in the air around them!
The party then started at Primrose Hill, with cocktails and champagne in abundance. The guests enjoyed the views from the lawn and I stole the couple away for some beautiful portraits at Primrose Hill Farms iconic pond.
The barn was styled beautifully, with elegant meets rustic table places. They used old gin bottles as their table names and to hold their flowers. They also placed their banqueting tables across the barn which meant everyone could enjoy the incredible view over the cotswold countryside! Something I hadn’t seen done here before…
As the sun set I dashed the couple away to soak in the golden light and before long the bridesmaids joined us as they two were in awe of the red glow that was setting upon the barn. The sunset’s at Primrose Hill Farm really are some of the best!
As the sunset, the cake was cut and the music started. Alex and Tom’s first dance was upbeat and fun, finishing with dragging their mum and dad onto the dance floor. Before long it was time Bathsheba’s wedding band to start the Ceilidh, where everyone got involved and the dance floor was at capacity, I hardly had space to photograph!
Now… I could write a whole blog about how this pair partied the night away, with new steps learnt, swinging from person to person with smiles from ear to ear. I could have stayed all night, but left them to their dancing shoes.
See below a selection of images which show just how amazing Alex and Tom’s wedding day really was…
