Georgi and Geoff
Sheepdrove Organic Farm
Sheepdrove organic farm is the perfect choice for wedding photography. It’s tucked away in Lambourn, Berkshire seemingly in the middle of nowhere but only a short drive to the M4. Despite being a wedding photographer based in Cornwall, my work takes me far and wide.
Georgi and Geoff contacted me after attending a wedding that I was photographing in Reading the year before. They saw the images and asked me to be their wedding photographer. Due to the distance, we weren’t able to meet beforehand but we did have a Skype video call to go over all the last minute details of the wedding.
Sheepdrove organic farm is an ideal wedding venue. It’s licensed for civil ceremonies in two of large rooms. As an organic farm they pride themselves on their food which was delicious! They also have fantastic accommodation for the guests.
Both Georgi and Geoff got ready at the venue on the morning of the wedding but in different parts to keep tradition. The ceremony was held in the cathedral-like vaulted “Oak room” which was stunning and unique!
After the ceremony, Geoff had hired some Owls as a surprise to Georgi. This was an idea from a date they once had. The birds made for some incredible photo opportunities. They also kept the guests entertained during the couple photos. We took a golf kart down to a beautiful lake.
It was then back to the venue for group photos and the all important wedding breakfast. Guests were also entertained by close up Magician, Brendan Rodrigues. I am still unsure how he turned a coin into a pen right in front of my face!
It was then a short break while evening guests filtered in and back into the ‘Oak Room’ for cake cutting and dancing. The entertainment was a mix of DJ and band.
Georgi and Geoff are a wonderful couple who are clearly meant to be together. It was a pleasure and an honour to be their wedding photographer. I truly wish them all the best and a long and happy life together.
