On Saturday we joined Jordan + Mike for their wedding photos at York Barn at Villa Farm, a set of luxury cottages just north of the York ring road on the edge of the village of Wigginton.
It was not only lovely to shoot a wedding at a venue that’s new to me, but also to rejoin some familiar faces again for another family wedding! I’d met these guys at Mike’s sisters wedding at Saltmarshe Hall back in Autumn last year, so it was lovely to see Kath + Tom again and to catch up with their lovely family. And as at Kath’s wedding, their dad Martin used his brilliant floristry skills to do all the flora again (which looked frankly amazing!)
While I joined Jordan and team bride in their lovely Villa Farm cottage, my wingman Tim (of Stott + Atkinson fame) headed to the dudes at Mike’s parents house in the pretty village of Sutton on the Forest. After all laughing our way through a pre-wedding practice shoot, I knew these guys would be throwing a relaxed but fun wedding – so it came as no surprise to find Jordan had a cracking set of full size white wedding cowgirl boots! And that Jordan and her step-dad did a shot of tequila each before heading to the civil ceremony! Mike and his chaps were also partial to a drink too – in their case enjoying a fine sherry aged whiskey – apart from Tom, who’s groomsman gift was Five Guys gift voucher!
We were so lucky to get a dry autumnal day as we barrel into November, and it was a relief to get our happy couple in out of the cold after a round of fun group shots and portraits! And after a lovely meal, fun speeches, it was time for a good ol’ knees up to a a great band. All in all, a thoroughly lovely day!
