‘We have had so many comments from friends and family about how impressed they were with Zoë on our wedding day, and of course her photos! We could not recommend her enough’

South Farm Wedding

I was so looking forward to photographing Emma and Vishaal’s South Farm wedding day. After meeting them I knew it was going to be every bit as vibrant as their personalities.

The blue skies and bright sunshine made for a perfect backdrop to an array of amazing colours they used to theme their wedding.

South Farm is a rustic wedding venue surrounded by countryside in Royston on the Hertfordshire / Cambridgeshire border. When you hire the venue you also get some additional wedding guests in the form of piglets, sheep and some impressive feathery residents.

I joined Emma and her Bridesmaids in the bridal suite on the morning of her wedding. Vish and his Groomsmen were also getting ready at South Farm. Meaning I could nip between the two of them to photograph the getting ready action from both sides.

The Ceremony

Emma and Vishaal’s wedding ceremony was held outside in the Summer House, with guests watching from across the pond. The blazing sunshine had guests shading themselves under umbrellas pre-ceremony. And sweaty hands made the ring exchange slightly more challenging.

Emma, Vish and I took a few moments away from the crowds for some informal photos. A chance for them to take it all in, and have 5 minutes alone (aside from me, of course).

The Reception

Emma and Vishaal held their wedding reception in South Farm’s Tudor Barn.

I am always keeping watch on the sky as the evening draws in on a wedding day. When we are lucky enough to have clear blue skies in the daytime that usually hints at a chance of a great sunset. After cutting the cake, Emma, Vish and I went out for a few quick photos to take advantage of the beautiful sun setting.

After that it was straight back to hit the dance floor. Live drums kicked off an evening of dance and celebration. I love being on the dance floor and photographing everyone letting their hair down after a day of formalities. Emma and Vish’s reception was a dream to photograph, a great end to a perfect day.
