When I first met up with Katie for a chat about her plans for the wedding day, I knew it was going to be a good one. Although Katie and Mark only live five minutes from me, they had chosen one of my very favourite venues to tie the knot, The Granary Barn at Elms Farm.
Elms Farm is a working farm in rural Lincolnshire, near Boston. It only takes on a handful of weddings every year, ensuring a personal service, with a near free-reign it is a perfect blank canvas for a rural barn wedding in the East Midlands. The contrast between industrial farm buildings and beautiful wildflower meadows means this wedding venue of contrasts can be really made your own. On site accommodation makes everything so much easier and laid back too. Carol and her team do a superb job on the day making everything run smoothly for you.
One great moment on the day was Kate’s dad surprising her by bringing along her cherished family heirloom vintage bicycle which the couple decided to take a little ride on down the farm lane.
Like me, live music is a huge part of the couple’s life and an important part of their journey together, so it made perfect sense for them to incorporate this into their day. The day culminated with a blinding live music set from Doncaster based band The Electric Idols. If you love bouncing Indie Rock then bloody book them!! They were unbelievably good, in fact every time I hear The Courteeners ‘Not 19 forever’, it reminds me of the energy of that wedding set-list opener.
I love being a Lincolnshire wedding photographer, the completely flat glacial landscape makes for amazing golden hour and sunset shots with the uninterrupted rolling vista.
