Winter Warwickshire Farm Wedding Photos with Christmas fairground theme with Sarah & Dawid

Sarah & Dawid
Family Farm in Warwickshire

Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength while loving someone deeply gives you courage. – Lao Tzu

The Backstory

Sarah got in touch with me on Facebook, when planning their Warwickshire Farm wedding. The wedding day she described sounded super exciting, and I hoped she would book. Once I had confirmed my availability, within a matter of minutes, Sarah & Dawid asked me to be their wedding photographer. I scribbled out the December date in my diary and asked Faye if she would be my second photographer for the day.

A few weeks before the wedding, Sarah and I met for a drink and a chit-chat. The wedding I had imagined in my head just became even more awesome as soon as she mentioned “Family farm” and “bumper cars at night”. Roll on the wedding day where we had dustings of snow, almost freezing temperatures – and a day ahead full of excitement.

The Ceremony in Stretton on Dunsmore

I turned up at the family farm to capture the bridal preparations. Sarah & her bridesmaids were super excited, sipping on prosecco and getting their hair and makeup done. I proceeded to dot about, capturing the little details like her shoes and dress, and also snapping up those fleeting moments of tears and laughter in between.

Once Sarah had her dress on, it was time to get a move on to the church. Faye was already at the church with the boys. She spent the morning capturing guests arriving and getting a few snaps of Dawid in his wedding attire, with his groomsmen. They decorated the church beautifully with Christmas trees & decor. The ceremony was beautifully conducted by Rev Ali Massey who was quite possibly one of the sweetest celebrants I have ever met. She allowed for some memorable wedding photos during the ceremony, and Faye & I will forever be grateful.

The Warwickshire Farm Wedding Reception

After the ceremony, we proceeded to have a confetti line-up which was super fun – yet a teeny bit cold! Guests made their way to the farm after seeing the happy couple drive off. They decorated the marquee with purple carpeting, Christmas decor including real-life Christmas trees and of course flowers. So many gorgeous flowers. Something that stood out most to me was the bar & hangout areas where people could congregate and chill, catch up without needing to sit at their table or mingle on the dancefloor.

For group photos we did the bare minimum, starting with grandparents first, proceeded by their lovely parents and bridal party. Within a few minutes, we had these done and dusted so that everyone could enjoy their drinks & festivities. Sarah & Dawid didn’t want many photos together as the outside temperature was frosty, it was getting dark with it being winter – and they planned to mingle with their guests. We spent about 20minutes or so wandering between 3 different spots where I just took some relaxed wedding day portraits of them both to remember the day. As it was a Warwickshire farm wedding, we had some beautiful greenery to use.

After a delicious festive meal of Beef Wallington and crumble for dessert, the band started the party off with a bang. Sarah & Dawid had a beautiful first dance which quickly became a full-on dance party. Outside, there were BUMPER CARS which was super fun. After capturing Sarah trying out the bumper cars, Faye & I said our goodbyes.

I loved this day – it was by far one of my favourite Winter weddings. They thought of everything, and it was an incredible atmosphere.

With love,
