Who knew you could hold your wedding at Betton Farm, well you do now! First things first, I met Marie on a mutual friend’s hen do. We shared in a weekend of fun in Bristol back in 2013 and when Marie asked me to shoot her wedding at the end of 2014 I was so excited.
It was a sunny September day and I met Marie at the hairdressers while Rich went off to see Oli and the chaps getting ready. After the bridal party was hairdo-ed we went back to Marie’s parents house to continue the preparations which included a buffet lunch and making sure Grandad had time with the bride as he wasn’t able to get to the ceremony. Oli got ready at home and made sure he got a shot with Marie’s chickens before they left!
St Peter’s church is pretty awesome inside, it has one of those amazing old church smells and the stained glass is so beautiful. The service was lovely and when everyone left the church Marie and Oli had surprised everyone with an ice cream from a proper ice cream van! When everyone had got an ice cream we headed out to Betton Farm on an open top bus, with a trip around the sea front for good measure. The marquee at Betton Farm looked amazing and the details Marie and Oli had brought to decorate looked amazing. Marie has a job with (and adores) animals and Oli’s into kayaking so both of their favourite things provided a perfect theme for their special day. Combined with beautiful flowers and quite a few rabbits here and there the marquee and conservatory of Betton Farm looked wonderful.
Betton Farm laid on a gorgeous BBQ dinner and then a band played well into the night with guest appearances from the wedding party on vocals and drums! A wonderful day full of happiness and love and we were so glad to be able to capture it all. Thank you again Marie + Oli.
