Farm Wedding at home in Old, Northamptonshire

Mar 5, 2018

"We loved loved working with Jordanna! She managed to capture everything that we asked for, without taking hours to do so. Neither of us wanted to have too many posed formal photos and Jordanna got the balance bang on. It can't be easy dealing with multiple family members and guests at a wedding but she managed to totally win over both sets of parents, no easy task! She just nailed it." Phyllida & Tom

Farm wedding at home in Old, Northamptonshire // I felt extremely honoured to have the opportunity to shoot Phyllida and Tom’s Wedding at home in Old, Northamptonshire. Phyllida’s family farm made the most perfect setting for their wedding party. Being able to hop next door to church flanked by her dad, Farmer Mark, was really special too. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know these two and hearing their stories. Wishing you all the best for a very happy life together guys!

Planning a wedding at home

We got married on my parents family farm in Northants. Tom and I both grew up locally and the idea of getting married in the village and walking to our reception in the fields was the only real option for us. We felt incredibly lucky we could do this.

A last minute change of dress heart

So dress shopping for me didn’t quite go to plan. . By some magical miracle I managed to find an off the rail dress that only needed the hem altering and bingo, job done! Tom had decided to keep what he was wearing a secret too. I love blue suits so I was hopeful he’d go down that route. Safe to say on the day we both felt incredible and our smiles speak for themselves.

First dance and musical entertainment

Our First dance was to an acoustic version of Sonnentanz ‘The sun don’t shine.’ We don’t have a song as such, but this one reminds us of a really happy time. The band played an acoustic version and then sped it up a bit so people would join in. It was perfect.

During the day we had an awesome swing trio – The Hot Swing Gentlemen and then a band for dancing later, Tux Fizz (I think the lead singer stole a few hearts that night!)

Wedded Wisdom

Don’t pick your wedding dress too soon! There is so much pressure on brides to get your dress sorted months in advance but there are some amazing high street, off the rail etc. options that also don’t break the bank. Also it’s highly unlikely that you will be able to please everyone so stop trying! Be mindful that you are getting married because you want to be make a special commitment to your partner, surrounded by loved ones (be it 10 or 1000) and that’s what the day should be about. Not about trying to please everyone else. Enjoy every single second!
