FFOREST FARM WEDDING
A FFOREST FARM WEDDING always exceeds any expectation and the weekend of James and Claire’s wedding was no exception. At Fforest it’s so much more than just a wedding day, its an entire experience for anyone that stays for the weekend. Autumn was well on the cards for this weekend and incredibly the weather was on side for everybody to enjoy the experience whether it was sleeping in a dome, the crog lofts or the beautifully renovated Ty Fforest Farm House. There’s a real communal spirit when at Fforest with most friends and family rocking up on Friday evening and staying the entire weekend. I wanted to capture a little of this so turned up Friday evening to photograph people reunite before the wedding day on Saturday. Local craft ale was flowing at Y-bwthyn, the gorgeously cosy onsite pub and Fforest made fresh pizza was being served up straighht from the wood burning pizza oven. With beer and pizza in my belly I left them sat around the birch log fire to return the next morning.
SATURDAY MORNING ARRIVED, with the odd exception everyone looked very fresh despite attempting to drain Y-Bwthyn dry into the early hours. Thanks so much to Claire and James for the privilege of being present on your Fforest Farm wedding weekend and to the Fforest staff who ensured I was so well looked after. I’m back at Fforest in May this year and very much look forward to experiencing a Spring time wedding. For me as a Fforest Farm wedding photographer one of the most important considerations was to retain the feel, the look, the light and the soul of Fforest in the final images. Here’s a selection from the wedding day..
“What can we say…. these are simply PHENOMENAL! We mean’t to send you a message as soon as you sent the link but we’ve been so excited about the photos I totally forgot to get back to you. Just such beautiful work and i think you’ve done a perfect job of capturing the feel of the whole weekend. These are beyond what we were hoping for and we’ll never be able to say thank you enough.” – James & Claire.
