Hayley and Richard - Nancarrow Farm

Even torrential rain couldn't put a damper on this magical September Wedding at the spectacularly rustic and magical Nancarrow Farm.

This blog post is a BIG one - but I wanted to show you exactly what you can expect from a full day's coverage, picking out some of the key moments throughout a wedding day so you get a feel for how a wedding day tends to flow. You'll see photos from wedding prep right through to first dance and sparkler exit, so keep scrolling! Nancarrow Farm is one of my favourite places to shoot a wedding in Devon and Cornwall these days, so when Hayley and Richard booked me for their September wedding I couldn't be happier.

The morning was very relaxed and began in the cosy and rustic oak framed bridal suite, with Hayley and her bridesmaids getting their hair and makeup done while the rain poured, champagne flowed, and smiles glowed. (I know, sounds lame, but it's true! See for yourself!)


Then it was off - under numerous umbrellas - across the yard to the Wedding Barn, where Richard was waiting with his best man, and guests were already seated. I must say, the staff at Nancarrow really did go the extra mile this day with everyone carrying umbrellas for the bridal party - and even for me, so I could shoot without getting my gear soaked! If there was an award for wettest wedding of 2022 I think this one would take it - and in some venues it would have been disastrous - but the team at Nancarrow were so amazing that the rain didn't detract from the wedding at ALL in my opinion...! THE CEREMONY

Following on from their beautiful wedding ceremony, and despite the rain, Hayley wanted to do the confetti throw outside so they exited the barn, doubled back around the back and waited for all their guests to exit and make a line under umbrellas for their confetti moment... confetti in the rain really is a romantic twist!


Then it was on to the Champagne reception, where guests mingled and Hayley and Richard got their first look at the barn set up for their banquet-style Wedding Breakfast, before I took them off to their glasshouse for a botanical portrait session - partly to stay dry, and partly because I'm a huge fan of greenhouses!
