Jimmys Farm Wedding Reception
A first for us, a Jimmys Farm Wedding Reception! A Wedding with a difference! Let’s start at the beginning of Andrea and Simon’s Wedding Day. Our first port of call on day of the Wedding was arriving at Andrea’s Parents’ home. Andrea was in the final stages of having her make-up and hair done so after capturing a couple of pictures we got on with taking pictures of Andrea’s Wedding Dress and accessories. Sarah, Andrea’s sister, Sarah, helped Andrea then get into her Wedding Dress. Andrea’s Father was waiting downstairs and we were there to capture the moment. It had been raining earlier but had dried up enough for us to take some family pictures outside on the patio. With a few bridal portraits and the car pictures taken we then left to go to St Mary the Virgin Church, Langham, Colchester. Arriving at this lovely Church, we met with Simon and his Best Man, Dan. Car shots were first! Simon had the use of Dan’s own TVR! Before the Guests started to arrive we took some requested family pictures as well as some pictures of Simon. Simon and Dan and the ‘Usherettes’ then went about their duties. The pathway leading up to the Church gives the opportunity of some nice Guest arrival pictures which we took. The Guests were seated in the Church when Andrea arrived for the Wedding Ceremony. After the service, with everybody in the church grounds we got on with the requested pictures. Fingers had been crossed for the weather to hold as Andrea and Simon wanted the majority of the family and group pictures taken at the Church. It worked! Once these were completed, Andrea and Simon were covered with confetti at the Lych Gate. Afterwards the Guests left to go to Jimmy’s Farm and Simon and Andrea went for a very short drive. They then returned to the Church wanting a few shots down the driveway and also had the opportunity of getting some different pictures overlooking Dedham Vale. Not to be missed! Deciding to take their ‘together’ pictures and other pictures around proved to be a good idea! Arriving at Jimmy’s Farm, the sun was out and the Guests enjoyed the Drinks Reception. Sarah who is married to Dan awaited for Andrea and Simon to arrive. The four of them then walked together into Jimmy’s Farm to where the the Guests were. Some lovely pictures! Andrea and Simon had time to socialise with their guests as we only had an everybody picture and a few informal group shots to take. The meal was inside the Barn and when the Guests were seated Andrea and Simon made their entrance. A lovely atmosphere! Platters of sumptuous BBQ food from the Farm were provided for the guests to help themselves to. Following the meal Andrea and Simon cut their Wedding Cake. It was a nice evening so the Guests mingled outside before the First Dance. After the First Dance there was a beautiful sunset and to top it all, a moon shot as well! What a truly enjoyable day! Thank you Anna, (lovely to see you), and Craig, (hope you enjoyed your friend’s stag do!) whose Wedding we photographed at Crabbs Barn in 2014, for recommending us.
