Antonia & Sam’s wedding reception at Wick Farm, Bath
Antonia & Sam had chosen the lovely Wick Farm in Bath for their wedding reception. Not only did they like the charm of the converted barn but it’s location was ideal being not too far from the church they had chose to marry.
My day started at Bailbrook House where Antonia was getting ready. Her bridesmaids were there to pop open the Champagne and help Antonia get into her beautiful wedding dress.
Her brother arrived to give her away and as the girls were ready in plenty of time we had opportunity to take photo’s in the grounds of Bailbrrok House before heading to the church.
St Swithins church in Bathford was a special place for Sam. He grew up in the area and his mum just so happens to be the local reverend and was able to conduct the ceremony for them.
As with all churches there are generally some rules for photographers. This particular church didn’t mind me taking photos but I did have to stand at the back to capture them. So despite Sam knowing the reverend very well, there was no special treatment for their ceremony.
Standing at the back of a dark church is a classic example of why you should hire a professional photographer. With such poor lighting only a professional will be able to nail focus and have the right gear to capture such a situation.
After the ceremony we headed outside for a few photo’s and confetti before heading to their wedding reception at Wick Farm.
On arrival the couple were greeted with welcome drinks and had a little time to talk with their guests. We then took a stroll around Wick Farm to capture some beautiful couple photo’s within the grounds.
After food came speeches and before we knew it the evening had arrived. Wick Farm is a great wedding venue not only during the day but also at night. With fairly lights illuminating the garden we made a few lovely night portraits to end the evening.
If you are getting married at Wick Farm or anywhere in Bath it would be great to hear from you.
