NATASHA & MATT – SOUTH FARM CAMBRIGESHIRE
Natasha and Matt were married at the wonderful South Farm in Cambridgeshire…
Despite choosing South Farm as their wedding venue, Natasha and Matt actually live just round the corner from me so meeting for a drink and a chat about their wedding plans was a short trip to our local. Hastings is full of great pubs and the Crown is a mutual favourite so we talked through ideas for the day, the layout of the wedding venue and the natural feel they wanted from their photos.
South Farm boasts a wonderful tudor barn which Natasha and Matt used for their wedding breakfast and reception and a small holding with rare breeds, they also grow much of their own produce on site. I arrived in good time to catch up with Natasha and Matt and chat to some of their guests before spending some time with the girls getting ready.
The ceremony was relaxed and intimate in the old dairy which is open to lots of natural light even in winter and the grounds provided plenty of space, both inside and out for guests to mingle before the wedding breakfast and speeches. I was great to be amongst Natasha and Matt’s guests throughout the meal as I was able to pick out little moments which would have otherwise been missed and it was lovely to be made to feel so welcome.
Before the first dance and evening celebrations, everyone had a chance to play with some sparklers – for these shots I simply put the camera on my tripod and let the magic happen – its always a risk to step back but the results, I think, make for wonderful memories.
