Houchins Wedding Photography for Rachel & Daniel
This was our first Houchins Wedding Photography and we loved it! Christmas time as well! We have wanted to work at Houchins for ages but when asked previously we have always been already booked. We arrived at Houchins for Rachel and Daniel’s Winter Wedding on a misty day. First of all we went to the Farmhouse and met up with Daniel. He was relaxed and about to get ready. Going upstairs we went to find Rachel and the girls, which wasn’t hard, actually we just followed the sound of voices and laughter! The girls were having a great time with lots of preparations going on. Whilst I got on with taking pictures of Rachel’s details and accessories, David went back to see Daniel and his Groomsmen.
After the champagne pictures with Rachel and the Bridesmaids, they all got dressed. As this was happening Daniel was having a few pictures taken with his Groomsmen. Once Rachel was ready and looking amazing, we took a few pictures of her with the girls and Rachel’s Parents. Then it was time for Rachel to meet with the Registrars. After this, the Registrars went over to the Barn and we had a few minutes for Rachel’s Bridal portraits in the Farmhouse. The Bridesmaids led the way afterward to the Wedding Barn ready for the Civil Ceremony. Following the Ceremony Rachel and Daniel spent time with their Guests during the Drinks Reception. Rachel and Daniel wanted some group pictures which we managed to take outside being not too cold or dark! We had to work quickly in the failing misty light but we managed to do take a variety of pictures. Later for Rachel and Daniel’s ‘together’pictures we went to the Farmhouse and used the rooms inside especially the lounge with the Christmas Tree and doorways for some lovely pictures. During the afternoon we captured some informal pictures of the Guests, whilst they were socialising . The Speeches were before the serving of the meal at the Wedding Breakfast. After the Wedding Breakfast finished the Evening Guests started to arrive and the evening celebrations began. After Rachel and Daniel’s First Dance they were joined on the dance floor by many of their Guests. A short time later the Guests made their way outside lining the paths and lighting their Sparklers. Great pictures! Finishing with a couple of pictures of Rachel and Daniel outside Houchins completed our photography coverage. It was a lovely day Rachel and Daniel, we thoroughly enjoyed it! It was nice to see some familiar faces and to work again with Taylor who was running the day for Rachel and Daniel. As for Houchins, a splendid Wedding Venue. We look forward to working there again soon.
