Brook Farm Wedding Photographer
This was my first visit to Brook Farm in Cuffley. I’m going to warn you – it is gorgeous and you’re going to have wedding venue envy. Oh and this is a pretty uniquely colourful wedding, lots of bright, bold, primary colours, including sunflowers, blue bridesmaid dresses and multicoloured pom poms everywhere.
Abbie and Sam met with me in a pub what feels like forever ago. I remember being super excited for the following reasons – 1) I have a mega hair crush on Abbie and wanted to see her wedding hair 2) these two were super chilled, they wanted an anti-wedding and wanted to avoid all the posed stuff 3) Brook Farm! I’ve been really excited to work there for bloody ages 4) Outdoor ceremony, on a little island, under some beautiful trees 5) I am always into a marquee wedding 6) Erm…I just totally loved Abbie and Sam and knew I was going to love their guests…which I did.
So, this post isn’t going to be filled with a whole lot of scrolling past portraits because we spent maybe 10 minutes max on all the “posed” photos (you know guys, they’re never really posed when I do them). This works perfectly for me and goes to show that you can make sure to get the group shots that make your family happy, get a few couple shots just to prove you definitely got married, and not miss out on any of your precious drinking, eating and mingling time.
Abbie and Sam were supposed to be having a first dance, but, it turned out to be such a lovely summer evening, and they were enjoying their guests company so much, that they decided to pass and put the dancing off until way further into the evening. This is a lesson for all of you yet to be married – you don’t have to do anything you don’t want to do and you can definitely prioritise the things that make you happy – if chatting with friends is more important to you than dancing, don’t feel like you have to do a first dance just because it’s the done thing.
Oh and there’s a little doggy visitor who sneaks in towards the end of this post and the faces everyone is pulling accurately represent my joy at seeing a surprise wedding dog. To the photos…!
