Northamptonshire Wedding Photography at Crockwell Farm, for the wedding of Matthew & Lottie.
It was on a very cold & foggy November morning, that I made my way to Crockwell Farm near the village of Eydon in Northamptonshire.
Crockwell Farm is a lovely, well established wedding venue that sits amid rolling Northamptonshire countryside. This had also been the venue for Matthew & Lottie’s Pre-Wedding photo-shoot a few weeks earlier, so I had a plan of locations for the formal photographs to be taken.
But as the weather was not going to improve throughout the day, I had to revert to ‘Plan B’. Thankfully Crockwell Farm has lots of character, with converted barns being used for the actual wedding ceremony, so we decided to do the formal shots there which worked out very well.
Lottie was getting ready in the cosy cottage that adjoins the main barn, and it was a busy hub for her bridesmaids and family throughout the morning. Matthew arrived around midday from the nearby village of Eydon, as he had been staying in a cottage that is also owned by Crockwell Farm.
Lottie looked absolutely stunning, and was given away by her father. During the vows Matthew did well to keep his emotions under control, and gave us an insight as to how emotional the day was going to be.
During the speeches Matthew gave one of the most beautiful speeches that I have ever witnessed, and sometimes its difficult to focus on the job in hand when I get an attack of the ‘wet eyes’. But that is why I love wedding photography, because emotions are heightened, and where absent loved ones get remembered.
After the wedding breakfast and speeches, which were staged in a massive marquee that is part of the venue, Crockwell Farm surprised the guests with one more party trick. A large section of the marque is parted to reveal a large dance floor area! And three first dances were performed by bride and groom, father of the bride and mother of the groom.
A lovely day was enjoyed by everybody, and the couple jetted off to the Maldives for their honeymoon.
Below are just a few images from their big day:
