Continuing with my mission to catch up with my wedding blogging again finds me back in 2021, this time at Huntsmill Farm for Kirsty and Joe’s sizzling and scorchio wedding. This was easily the hottest day of the year as the mercury hit the mid 30’s. It was my first time at this wonderful, family run, wedding venue set deep in the Buckinghamshire countryside. The venue consists of a series of interlinked 18th-century barns and farm buildings which incorporate the wedding venue and also on site accommodation for around 30 guests.

I met with Kirsty at the Blacksmith’s Cottage at Huntsmill Farm, one of the guest accommodation rooms which are ideal for the bridal preparations. It was a flurry of activity with hair being done by Kirsty from Individual Glamour and makeup, by my good wedding friend, the lovely, the delightful, the cat loving Harper from Makeup by Harper. I’ve worked with Harper many times over the last few years and it’s always a delight to team up with her on a wedding day. She always does such an amazing job.

Meanwhile; over in the Well Cottage, another of guest rooms at Huntsmill Farm, Joe and his best man were readying themselves for the days activities. The odd beverage may have been quaffed as the guys donned their dark blue Moss Bros three piece suits. As the ceremony approached Kirsty made her way over to The Old Dairy to get into her wedding dress, a stunning white gown which was from The White Boutique in Leamington Spa. Meanwhile her bridesmaids wore matching dresses from Maids to Measure.

The ceremony, which took place in the beautifully restored 18th century barn, was a lovely, intimate affair held in front of the bride and groom’s closest friends and family. With the temperatures soaring outside the guests were all given fans to help keep their temperatures to a more reasonable level. The ceremony was conducted by Joe’s good friend Rich, this gave a lovely personal feel to the proceedings. With the vows completed and rings exchanged, everyone then headed outside to shower the newly married couple with confetti. With the blazing sun still beating down the drinks from the drinks reception were very much welcomed by the guests. As the children charged around in the sunshine, most of the adults sought shelter under the farm’s trees in order to seek some respite from the heat.

For their wedding breakfast, Kirsty and Joe treated their guests to a magnificent three course feast curtesy of the kitchen wizards from Portfolio Events. With the delicious food all eaten and the speeches completed the guests made their way back outside as the barn was readied for the evening reception. Thankfully the scorching temperatures had now begun to subside.

Musical entertainment for the evening reception was provided by Shine On. The 4 piece Brighton based band blasted out a huge selection of indie, rock & pop classics which kept the dancefloor jumping all night. Meanwhile outside, the Monday Night Eating Club had parked up their vintage Citroen van and were serving up the most amazing grilled cheese sandwiches imaginable. Hot music and hot cheese . . . the perfect combination!

Before I sign off I must say a huge thank you to Kirsty and Joe for having me along as their Huntsmill Farm wedding photographer. It was a real pleasure to have been part of such an amazing and super fun, super hot wedding. Here’s 50 photos to give you a look at their special day . . .
