Remember the hottest day of the year so far, when parts of England reached over 30c, well that was the day of Kate & Ben’s gorgeous marquee home farm wedding Derbyshire. What could be prettier and more intimate than a wedding on your home farm; a huge marquee in the garden, full of beautiful flowers and with expansive views over the Derbyshire countryside.

The wedding ceremony itself was held in the picturesque local church, a small stroll from the farm. After the ceremony and a few of my favourite confetti photographs the couple hopped into their landcover and drove over the marquee. We had considered walking back up to the farm where the marquee sat, but in those soaring temperatures it was much cooler to drive up the road, passing by all the guests trudging up a pretty steep hill and waving out of the window at them! The marquee itself was decorated beautifully with flowers created by a florist and family friend The Floral Collection, and looks magnificent in the sunshine.
Kate & Ben wanted to focus on the natural and candid style of my photography and I particularly enjoyed mingling with the guests in the sun capturing the laugher and joy of the day. After the speeches were done we made the most of the lowering sun by taking a drive up to the couples favourite spot where they often walk their two dogs, for some relaxed couple portrait shots. I left the couple dancing the night away with their friends and family to a live band and enjoying pizza in the evening dusk.
I have had the pleasure of shooting quite a number of weddings at home, with marquees or tipis nestled in the family farm or the gardens of a parents beautiful home. You can see a few of those pretty at home weddings here. And if you are planning a marquee home farm wedding Derbyshire or in a tipi/marquee somewhere then pop me a message I’d love to hear from you.
Big thanks to the lovely Kate Lowe for sweating along with me on this gorgeous wedding 🙂
