September saw me relatively close to home, in Cheshire‘s Peak District for Caroline and Benny’s Common Barn Farm Wedding. When I arrived in the morning, the Farm was buzzing with activity as the last of the finishing touches were put into place in the Marquee – Ben and his best men were hard at work sorting out a few last minute sound issues 🙂
In contrast to the men, Caroline and the girls were nicely relaxed, enjoying champagne and chocolates as they prepared for the day in one of the lovely stone cottages at the farm. Lots of the family were staying at the Farms B&B, and I spent the morning capturing all of the different aspects of the wedding day preparation.
A VW camper ride through the hills, led us to a quaint little church where the ceremony was to take place, a relaxed affair in which the vicar had everyone laughing away. A little emotional, Benny was obviously blown alway when he first saw his wife to be walking up the aisle.
A marquee wedding on the outskirts of Manchester, sunshine might have been too much to hope for. But the day was blessed with glorious weather all day – allowing everyone to absorb the spectacular views and enjoy the fairground games.
A truly relaxed day, it was the sort of wedding I love to document. Some of my favourite images (there are quite a few!) below…
The little engine on the VW camper van struggled with the steep hills, meaning Caroline was fashionably late to the church. One of the most relaxed vicars I’ve had the pleasure of working with wasn’t worrying though 🙂
