Abbey Farm Wedding | Sam & Will
Abbey Farm Wedding
Sam and Will’s wonderful Abbey Farm wedding was so much fun to photograph. I met Sam and her bridesmaids at her parents’ house and really enjoyed taking portraits of Sam in the gorgeous window light. She looked stunning in her beautiful wedding gown! I was also lucky enough to meet their lovely dog Ruby, and get some photos with her before we left for the church. Being a dog owner myself, I am always very keen to photograph dogs on a wedding day. And theirs was very well behaved! We even managed to come back to the house between church ceremony and reception for some photos with the dog in their garden. I love a Farm wedding and this one was pretty cool!
Sam and Will’s top 5
I asked Sam and Will to pick their favourite 5 images from the day and let me know why they like these ones so much! It’s so lovely to hear which pictures are favourites for my couples. I have included my favourites below. But these next 5 are special to Sam and Will, and I shall let them tell you why! First up, was this picture of Sam with their dog, Ruby. – “The look of true love between Ruby and the bride. Our first furry baby.”
no. 2 was of Sam and Will giving some side-eye in the church: “The eccentric vicar forgetting the order of service meaning that we faced the audience as they made their declaration.”
No. 3: “Elation as we come out of church to our home grown confetti and our friends and families. Serious bit is over!”
No4: “Driving off down the Main Street, leaving a road block of our friends and family behind us.”
No. 5: “A moment or two to ourselves before the dinner and partying begins, including getting caught up in the veil- we were so lucky with the weather but love the effect the wind had here and set to the backdrop of the stone wall and farm gates.”
No. 6: (hold on I said 5!) “the scramble for the bouquet whilst everyone looks on- the story that this sequence of photos tells is brilliant!” It was a good sequence. I shall include the rest below!

Hair and make up at home and not in a salon

Really relaxing to be around, thank you for helping in the set up and build up to the day. With regard to the images, we started to receive some very quickly which was so lovely as helped with the post wedding blues.
My favourite pictures:
Thanks Sam and Will for your lovely feedback. Here are a selection of my favourite images from your day, including that awesome bouquet toss, which had two very enthusiastic ladies clamouring for the bouquet! Luckily they made up over it in the end! But it was quite hilarious! And finally, I always like to give credit where credit is due, to the other suppliers involved in the wedding. So here they are:
