Amy and Sarah

Woodland Valley Farm Cornwall
Wedding Photography
This was to be the first time photographing a wedding at Woodland Valley Farm, Cornwall. I came to the venue a few days before the wedding to have a look around and I didn’t expect it to be as beautiful as it is. Everything is contained within a large working farm in the middle of the countryside. 
Two weeks prior, I was with Amy and Sarah at Fistral beach in Newquay doing their engagement shoot. This had settled the couples nerves and made them feel comfortable around me.
 Amy was getting ready at a different location so I started the day off with Sarah and her mother as they had their hair and makeup done. They were both surprisingly relaxed!

Woodland Valley Farms has 3 converted farm building used for guests to stay. There is also land is available for camping where some guests stayed.
The venue has 2 large barns and an large indoor room used for either the ceremony, reception and eating. Couples can decide where they would like to do each part of the day.

Amy and Sarah had chosen for the wedding breakfast to take place inside a room known as the Granary. They had decorated everything themselves with the help of family and friends.
The wedding ceremony took place in a barn, called ‘Heifers House’. During the time that I was visiting the venue beforehand, this barn was very much in use by cows as for most of the year, this venue is a working farm

Amy and Sarah wanted to keep most parts of the day traditional. One tradition was not seeing each other before the wedding ceremony. They did want to both walk down the aisle together though. Amy arrived in a beautiful vintage car from where she had been staying. They were both quite emotional seeing each other in their dresses for the first time.

They chose Sarahs young nephew to be the ring bearer. I was told that he had practised what he had to do for weeks before the wedding! He did an excellent job on the day.

The owner of the venue was giving the children a ride on his tractor around the farm to entertain them. Amy and Sarah thought that it would be a great photo opportunity so we climbed aboard. He took us up to field where he kept the cows. It was a fantastic place to take some great photos.

The reception took place in the ‘Orchard Barn’. Amy, Sarah and her friends had decorated this in the weeks prior as they had everything else.
Amy and Sarah hadn’t planned a first dance but Sarahs brother had arranged with the wedding band to do one. Midway through the first dance, guests started taking to the dance floor.

Woodland Valley Farm was one of the nicest venues I’ve photographed. Amy and Sarah did a wonderful job of decorating the venue making it personal to them. It was very much a DIY wedding which I love.
I enjoyed working with the couple and wish them both a long and happy life together
