We put on our wellies and headed across the fields, whilst catching up on Adele & Hugh's wedding plans. Hugh's parents own a dairy farm set in rural Dorset countryside and it is here that Adele & Hugh's reception will be!
The cows were not camera shy and some were only a day old and already enjoying the sunshine! Adele & Hugh's wedding ceremony is taking place at Old Wardour Castle, which is a magical place and we can't wait to photograph their day!
Mio & Gordon celebrated their wedding at Huntstile Organic Farm in Somerset. Mio & Gordon's family & friends came together from Scotland to New Zealand to share their day.
We arrived at the farm in the morning to find guests camping in the fields, exploring the village and children playing in the fields along with the farm's dogs. There was such a relaxed atmosphere, which carried on throughout the day. Later guests gathered in the farm house before getting onboard the tractor, which was to take them across the fields to the stone circle. The stone circle is situated on a hill top beside woodland and has the most amazing views overlooking the Quantock Hills.
Mio & her father walked down the woodland path, through a willow archway into the Stone Circle where guests were gathered in excitement. Mio & Gordon's humanist ceremony was very personal, emotional and intimate.
Following their ceremony guests hopped back on the tractor, drinking organic cider on the way and warmed up in the farm house. Later everyone made their way into the marquee, which was decorated with pom poms, rustic flowers and twisted willow. I loved Mio & Gordon's hand painted table names, named after their favourite ciders: Legless but smiling, Green Goblin, Rathay's Old Goat, Druids Celtic Cider, Moles Black Rat, Janet's Jungle Juice & Black Dragon. A BBQ was served with a range of delicious organic salads; there was certainly plenty of food to go around and as the chef told us none would be wasted as any leftovers are fed to the chickens!
Following Katie & James' ceremony in Part I everyone made their way to the wedding reception, which was held at James' Grandparents farm in Wellington, Somerset.
As the sun was setting we took a walk with the couple around the Farmhouse gardens. It was the pefect Summer's evening. Below you can see the details of Katie's beautiful Sassi Holford wedding dress, I love the big bows at the back and the delicate lace.
Katrina & James got married on the 9th July at All Saints Church in Culmstock, Somerset. I met Katie and her bridesmaids at James' Grandparents farm in the village of Nicholashayne in the morning. As I arrived Katie was still putting the finishing touches to the marquee ready for their Reception.
The wedding parquee was decked out with English country garden flowers, lanterns and fresh herbs.
Here's Part I of their wedding day...
