Donington Park Farmhouse Wedding


Wedding Image of the Week from Sophie and Josh’s Donington Park Farmhouse Wedding

After a short break, welcome back to week three of Wedding Image of the Week, this one is from a recent wedding at Donington Park Farmhouse, one of the first barn wedding venues in the country. I really struggled to pick out my favourite from this wedding, it very nearly ended up being a photo of one of the many awesome children at this particular wedding. Sophie and Josh’s gallery is full of photos of some of the cheekiest faces ever, they very nearly ended up being the stars of the whole day.

It possibly seems a little cliched to pick a champagne spray wedding photograph, but this one just makes me smile because of the conditions it was taken in. The rain had held off all day but later on the wind really picked up when we headed outside for champagne sprays and sparklers (that was another challenge – getting the sparklers lit!). I handed the bottle over to Josh and gave him instructions on where to aim it, this was well away from me, the camer and my second photographer, Lee. Just as the spray started flowing there was a big gust that soaked me, the camera and Lee, everything needed cleaning when I got home – including me. The other thing I love about this photo was how seriously Josh took his job of making the spray go far and wide, of all the champagne spray photos I have taken this is up there as a favourite.

This was my first time working as a wedding photographer at Donington Park Farmhouse, I certainly hope it’s the first of many. It’s such a photogenic venue, full of character, with many places to capture stunning wedding day photos of every part of the day.

Sophie and Josh’s wedding was a joy to work at, I can’t wait to see which photos they choose for their wedding album, it’s one I know I will love designing for them.

Look out for the next update, it will feature Sophie’s favourite photo from the day….
