Rhi & Jay (or Rhiannon & Jason in the formal sense) wanted a nice and relaxed wedding. It was extremely important to them that their guests enjoyed the day, and by the comments I overheard through, I can say it was a definite success.
They had their ceremony at St Mary's church in Newick, & was officiated by Rev. Paul Mundy. They had a choir, friends performing a song during the signing of the marriage register, and an emotional recording of the Welsh National Choir (who Rhi's grandad previously sang in). After the ceremony, a stunning VW Campervan took the newly weds to The Macs Farm. This was my first time here for a wedding (or in any capacity) although I have by coincidence enjoyed organic eggs from here before (not something I've ever said about another venue I've photographed a wedding at). This is a working farm spread out over beautiful countryside and with a private area reserved for events that includes open space for drinks, games, and bell tent accommodation, plus a large barn for your wedding breakfast, and evening party. Everything about the location oozes laid-back anyway, but add to that Rhi & Jay's demeanour, buffet style paella for a main meal, unlimited ice-cream for dessert, and stone baked pizza for evening snacks, and you end up with a very relaxed day.
For their preview photo, I thought I'd share one from their first dance. The barn is such unique setting with proper rustic gravel floor, corrugated roofing, exposed metal joists, and then a giant mirror ball, hanging flowers, and the newly weds themselves.
Congratulations Rhi & Jay! I had a great time, thanks.
