I adore a winter wedding and one at New House Farm was on my bucket list. It's almost impressive that it's taken me so long to photograph this stunning rustic barn wedding venue but when I finally got to photograph it for Rebecca & Adam, it was far from a "Normal" Wedding. And I LOVE THAT!
Having to postpone their wedding day several times they finally managed to get married nearly 18 months after the original date. The wedding day was between Christmas and New Year's day, some of the shortest days of the year. Adding to this is that the wedding ceremony took place at near enough sunset, we knew we had to change up some plans to make it all work out as amazing as it did.
Not only does New House Farm have some stunning barns and cool features alongside the country house. It also is situated in the amazing Lorton valley, in the Lake District surrounded by epic fells and ever chaining weather.
We decided to do a "First Look" which is a growing trend and in winter weddings where the wedding ceremony is so late in the day its a must-have! Its a little time for the couple to see each other first and have a small chat and some portraits in the daylight before the guests arrive. We also did most of the group shots before the ceremony to make use of daylight.
Rebecca & Adam booked me as they knew I could work in the dark with off-camera flash and knowing they were going to spend most of the wedding day in darkness we split up the morning's portraits, group shots and evening portraits to work with the daylight.
So if you're wondering about a winter wedding, and you're a little bit worried, there really isn't any need to be as this New House Farm wedding will show. If you fancy contacting me about your winter wedding then please do as I would love to document your wedding day!
