Wedding – Amy and Carl at Yew Tree Farm

Wedding – Amy and Carl at Yew Tree Farm

The Barn at Yew Tree Farm in Halewood is set on a working farm so you will see hens roaming around, alpacas, goats, sheep and a donkey with the odd tractor passing by. My usual second-shooter, Rick is an accomplished studio photographer in his own right and he is more than happy to assist me with my weddings, but he was convinced by his good friend to take on this wedding and it made a nice change for me to have a reversed role second-shooting for him. As a result, this gallery will look a little different from the usual ones. Rick told me that this would be his last wedding as a primary photographer – at time of writing this wedding took place a year ago and he has been as good as his word…

The Barn at Yew Tree Farm Wedding Photographer

Being acquainted with the Bride and Groom can be a blessing, but sometimes it can induce stress as your expectations to perform feel higher with people you know. Fortunately this wasn’t the case with Amy and Carl as we had a great pre-wedding meeting to thrash out the details required to cover their day, and their pledge of trust in us to deliver put us at ease so we could get on and do what we do. I arrived on the morning to a busy house and was greeted with “Come on in, have a brew – do you want anything to eat?” Truth be told I was feeling a little unwell, so the positive greeting was a lovely way to ease me into the day – thankyou!

Amy and Carl’s family and friends are close-knit and this was reflected in the behaviour of all the wedding guests. You can tell that this pair are well thought of by all and their marriage was just a natural progression of a long and strong relationship. I quite enjoyed taking pictures that I don’t normally take, and it was lovely to be paying attention to the background stuff; relatives catching up with each other, friends recalling stories about the bride and groom, the general atmosphere of happiness and shared celebrations.

The ceremony, speeches, formals and first dance seemed to fly by. The only snag of the day took place at the very end when Rick managed to stumble on some steps as he was and injured his ankle – ouch!
