Skylark Farm Wedding – Natalie and Ben
An amazing party of a wedding day at Skylark Farm Weddings!
Skylark Farm Wedding – Natalie and Ben – My heart goes out to Natalie and Ben as they have been through so much with their wedding planning due to the pandemic. I met with them in March last year for what should have been their final wedding planning meeting, but literally a week or two later we went in to lockdown and working with them throughout 2020 and 2021 to be finally at their wedding day on their fifth arranged date, it was such an amazing feeling for everyone, myself included!
Meeting both wedding parties at the De Vere Staverton Hotel, I quickly realised that Natalie and Ben’s close friends were, well, um, basically, beautiful nutters! I don’t know how else to describe them. It was full on laugh out loud all the way through prep and even when we got the serious bit of the ceremony, just all the little things happening in the background, I was smiling all the way through. One thing that needs a mention and when you look through the images below it will become apparent, is ‘sock-gate’. The boys were to wear odd socks but in a way that when they stood next to each other they would match across each person. It was pretty clear from the start this was going to be a lottery to get right (which they didn’t) but by the time we got to the group photos, with Natalie’s input the guys had managed to sort it all out.
In line with the rules, indoor hospitality was restricted to sit down only however as the weather was so nice and a beautiful evening overlooking the valley from Skylark Farm, the DJ pointed his speakers outside playing some background music and then the party really started. Outdoor first dances really should be an event that weddings continue after restrictions are lifted, with stunning light and surroundings these add so much to an already magical time. Then very quickly followed by two rounds of Jager-bombs costing nearly £200 (so many jager-bombs!) it then went in to full on party mode, fuelled by England winning 4-0 in the Euro’s semi’s.
Such an awesome day and thank you for allowing me to be a part of your wedding, days like yours are the best and I had so much fun being your wedding photographer. Thank you and congratulations!
‘Wow how amazing is Marcus! Like many couples over the last year our wedding was postponed multiple times but Marcus was so accommodating and we we’re super lucky and relieved he could do our date in July. From the morning right up to the late evening, Marcus was amazing and manged to capture every special moment and the pictures are exactly what we hoped for. He’s full of experience and great ideas to get that perfect picture. We couldn’t recommend him enough Thank you Marcus!!’ – Natalie & Ben
