Cat and Jake are both friends of mine, and asked me if I’d be their wedding photographer as they loved my documentary approach to telling their wedding day story, and of course I said yes – especially when I found out their wedding venue was the beautiful Oaks Farm Weddings, such a gorgeous peaceful little venue nestled in the heart of the Surrey and Croydon countryside just outside London.
We started at Selsdon Park Hotel where Cat and her bridesmaids were being made beautiful by Sarah Stacey. I just love capturing candid little moments and details during the bridal prep; those details are all part of what makes up the day but they’re so quickly forgotten in the organised chaos and tumultuous emotions that wedding days become by the end of the day, so I always make sure to fit plenty of them into the album so you’ll never forget them!
Then onto Oaks Farm itself where Jake was already waiting – cracking socks, Jake!
Cat and Jake are a lot like me, quite reserved and not hugely into making fussy portraits, but they were comfortable enough to let me make some lovely candid portraits they’ll hopefully treasure forever!
In the next part of their wedding day story I’ll post my favourites from the reception in the grounds of Oaks Farm, stay tuned!
