Wick FarmWedding

Bath, Somerset

I was absolutely thrilled when Grace and Tom asked me to be their Wick Farm wedding photographer. They’d heard about me via a recommendation from a friend which is always lovely, and it was obvious why they’d resonated with my work having booked such a beautiful barn venue. Being inspired by nature, my style really suits these gorgeous rural venues with dry stone walls, greenery, and pretty landscaped gardens.

This wonderful wedding was bursting with fun from start to finish. It was evident that Grace and Tom have a good sense of humour and aren’t worried about taking themselves too seriously and it made for a really memorable day!

The Clients Said…

“Becky was exactly what we were looking for in a wedding photographer.

On the day Becky was so nice, approachable and easy to talk to.

Becky made sure we enjoyed the day and we weren’t rushed off to take group shots/couple shots and allowed us to mingle and talk with our guests, which we were very appreciative of.

During our couple portraits, she made us feel at ease and made sure we were comfortable in what we were doing. 

We would highly recommend Becky if you would like a friendly and relaxed, yet efficient and professional photographer.”

The Wedding Day Story

I met up with Grace and her bridesmaids in the beautiful old farmhouse onsite where the bridal party were already busy having their hair and make-up done. Getting the bride into her wedding dress was a real family affair with all the bridesmaids, Mum, Dad and even Grace’s little nephew coming to help!

The groom looked happy and relaxed when I met him and his best man waiting patiently at the altar in the upper barn. Tom had already chatted to the registrar and celebrant and was awaiting his fiancé’s arrival. There was a particularly special moment when Tom’s sister got overwhelmed with emotion as Grace and Tom saw each other for the first time on their wedding day, it was so sweet!

After the ceremony the newly-weds greeted guests as they spilled out onto the pretty garden outside. Despite being autumn, the weather was fine, and I photographed candid moments of the couple and their guests hugging one another and enjoying canapes and fizz. After a handful of group photographs taken against a backdrop of yellowing autumn trees, Grace, Tom and I headed out away from guests to take some portrait photos.

Wick Farm has a long drive lined with trees and beautiful views over the Somerset countryside behind. The newly-weds took a walk up the drive whilst I photographed them against the pretty background. Grace’s A-line bridal gown flowed in the gentle breeze creating beautiful movement in the images.

When working at Wick farm it’s an absolute must to get some photos in front of the beautiful farmhouse. The old front-door was surrounded by pretty roses and climbers, and it made for a gorgeous backdrop.

Knowing the weather was going to deteriorate as the day went on and being autumn, I started to look for some pretty backlight to replace the golden hour photos we weren’t going to get. Luckily, behind a beautiful dry-stone wall and some trees the low afternoon light was creeping in and I was able to backlight the couple as they shared a kiss and a little dance in front of the wall.

After the couple had returned to the barn and spent a few minutes checking out all the decorations for the wedding breakfast, they were greeted back out into the garden by their wedding guests, who had lined up ready to shower them in confetti! Grace’s mum announced she was going to be aiming directly for her face, which really made me chuckle

I mostly shoot confetti shots with a wide-angle lens and a fast shutter speed to capture the confetti falling and the guests’ reactions as they throw confetti at the bride and groom. It’s always fun walking backwards down an aisle of guests, trusting nobody is behind me!

Once the confetti toss had finished everyone made their way into the upper barn for speeches and the wedding breakfast.

Later, once the toasts had been made and the wedding cake was cut, Grace and Tom shared their first dance as a newly married couple and the Ceilidh started up! Ceilidhs are one of my favourite things to photograph as they are just so much fun! They are one of the best ways to make sure your dance floor is full of action, and I love them!

The Wedding Venue

Wick farm is a gorgeous Somerset Barn Wedding Venue in the village of Hungerford, between Bath, Bristol, and Frome. This medieval farm is steeped in history and was original built for the monks of nearby Hinton Priory.

The barn itself boasts exposed stone walls and neutral colours, it’s been beautifully modernised and is perfect for couples wanting to put their own stamp on their wedding venue. Outside are pretty landscaped gardens, a decking and a pond, all surrounded by fields and orchards in this lovely rural setting.

The wedding coordinator Santa is warm, friendly, and organised and will ensure your day goes without a hitch (excuse the pun!). The team at Strawberry Field Catering will cater to all your wedding guests’ dietary needs.

At the time of writing, it is also possible to hire the main house out around your wedding day. This gorgeous farmhouse is like a Tardis inside with room upon room to house your wedding party. The perfect spot to place yourself for a stress-free wedding morning, just across the yard from the two adjoining 16th century barns.

Wick Farm has to be one of my favourite local venues with an awesome team, beautiful location, and relaxed atmosphere.

Bath Weddings

Bath is a city close to my heart and where I had all of my nursing placements when I trained to be a nurse, many years ago!

One of the reasons it’s such a wonderful city is that despite being reasonably small, it has everything city life can offer but is only a stones throw from gorgeous rural countryside.

There are many wonderful wedding venues in the surrounding area too. Many of which take full advantage of the beautiful countryside. 

There are great transport links particularly into London and Wales and lots of new places to explore for wedding guests choosing to make a mini-break of your nuptials.
