Matt and Victorias Wedding
Victoria and Matt's wedding at Huntsmill farm
It was a couple of years ago that Victoria and Matt had asked me to be their Huntsmill Farm wedding photographer for their big day. They had seen my work at another friends wedding and other events. When we got chatting we had so many more mutual friends in common and many other people that I had photographed that they knew. It really is a small world!
Matt had a very important part in Huntsmill becoming the stunning barn wedding venue it is today. He was the builder that renovated it from a former farm building and had a vested interest in making it a perfect wedding location for his fiancée and all of his friends and family to enjoy.
The bride and bridesmaids all got ready in Blacksmiths Cottage, which is a part of the accommodation at the venue. Matt had a great team of best men and groomsmen and they were all in great spirits before the ceremony. If they were nervous it didn’t show at all!
The service had a lovely relaxed feel and the bride and groom had their boys join them in the service for cuddles. Once the service was over, the guest was greeted in the courtyard with a glass of Pimms and the absolutely amazing sound of steel drums! The musicians were incredible and really got the guests in the party mood by encouraging them to limbo!
As Matt and Victoria had many friends and family, they didn’t have their speeches during the wedding breakfast but waited until the evening when everyone else arrived later. After the speeches and some more music, Matt and Victoria set about cutting into their amazing wedding cake made entirely of cheese! This was like the green light for the party to really get started and they all partied way into the small hours.
As the sun began to set, I was able to take some more stunning images with the gorgeous couple to mark their special day, which all went perfectly.
I think it is really important that any bride and groom make their wedding individual and make it special to them. From the children being involved to the family pet and even break tradition with a “cheese” cake. Make it yours!
