It was a joy to spend the day with Alicia and Dan at their wedding last summer. This was my first time as an Alcumlow Hall Farm wedding photographer and I was really looking forward to working at a wedding here. Alicia and Dan had planned a wedding with a fantastic party atmosphere. Right in the heart of the summer I think it was the hottest wedding I’ve ever worked. The sun literally shined all day with no clouds. When I arrived at the venue to start capturing bridal prep the barn had already been set up and the chairs were outside under the arches ready to welcome the guests. The bride and her bridesmaids were busy getting their hair and makeup done in the bridal suite which is included when you book a wedding here. I got to work capturing the moments as the bridal party spent time with each other.
With the guests seated and the groom ready for the ceremony to begin the bridesmaids and the bride made their way down the aisle. Dan’s emotions got the better of him and the wedding was a joy to behold. Being outdoors was such a refreshing way to capture a wedding. After the ceremony the canapés and drinks flowed and the guests mingled outdoors. The guests congratulated the couple with big hugs and dashing smiles as the children ignored everyone and just ran off to play. Alicia and dan only wanted a handful of family photos in the grounds of Alcumlow Hall Farm so it didn’t take long to capture these before they couple could get back to their wedding. The sun was so strong that day so we just did a handful of photographs around the grounds of the two of them to provide them with some fantastic Alcumlow Hall Farm Wedding photographs.
