Reportage wedding photography at Herons Farm
Herons Farm, just outside Pangbourne in Berkshire, the venue for Rebecca and Rachels wedding. A barn wedding on a farm, where you can stamp your own identity upon the location and the day. Plenty of Prosecco and Gin for a start! 😉
Two brides but only one (laidback) bridal prep. Just down the hill, at The Elephant hotel in Pangbourne. Rebecca was here with family and friends. Rachel was up at Herons Farm (no need for prep shots she said). Judge Rinder overlooking the prep. Outside it was sunny, hot and muggy. The forecast said rain to come….the forecast was right, there were a few drops but the day, thankfully, stayed dry. As family and friends gathered in the courtyard, outside the barn, a shuffling act began in the main house. The brides meeting the registrar, without bumping into each other. Rebecca arrived in a VW camper van, that would later serve as a photo booth.
Rachel waited in the barn. Rebecca arrived – the looks, the smiles, the kiss. Married! Time to hit the fizz. I think at this point, the confetti on the seats, was meant to be thrown – it wasn’t. So a lineup was organized in the courtyard, once R&R had had a sip of fizz. Drinks on the lawn, a roaming magician with card tricks, the Camper van photo booth, before back into the barn for the speeches. Some emotional words, some tears at the tables. Then a note under a chair and a designated person on each table, to don the chef’s hat and serve out the pie for supper.
Evening drinks in the courtyard – even a brief moment of evening sunshine. Tables were cleared, the band did their sound checks and then Rebecca and Rachel kicked off the dancing.
So here are few images from Rebecca and Rachel’s wedding day at Herons Farm…..
