Couple sharing moment in starlit darkness.

Autumn Wedding at Huntsmill Farm

Hunstmill Farm is an exclusive barn-style wedding venue tucked away into the Buckinghamshire countryside.

During the Autumn of 2023, I had an absolute blast revisiting Huntsmill Farm to capture the spectacular union of Helen & Graham. If you’ve been keeping tabs on my work, you’ll know how much I love this wedding venue in Buckinghamshire. I have captured several weddings there and let me tell you, it never loses its charm – from the jaw-dropping grounds to the amazing staff, it’s the whole package.

Before the big day, we had a cracking Zoom call, going through all the nitty-gritty details and having a good old chinwag. Helen and Graham were up for spending as much time as possible, having creative wedding portraits. They wanted something out of the ordinary, and that got me buzzing. Not every couple is game for lot’s of portraits, but these two certainly were. They were laid-back, fun, and ready for a day filled with celebrations with loved ones.

Fast forward to the big day, and I rocked up early at Huntsmill Farm, ready to set up and dive into the festivities. I bumped into Graham in the barn upon arrival, and we had a good laugh for a solid ten minutes. With accommodation aplenty on-site, Graham decided to get ready at the venue too. The proximity made it a breeze for me to capture both sides getting ready – not something I always get to do.

I kicked off the day by heading to the blacksmith’s cottage where Helen was getting ready. The energy in the air was infectious, with kids and adults alike sporting huge grins. Helens’s mum brought along her air fryer (genius!) and whipped up bacon sandwiches for everyone. Meanwhile, Helen’s dad brewed up some tea and coffee (thanks for the caffeine boost!). The family vibe was palpable.

My next stop was the stables cottage to catch Graham and his best men. We spent some quality time, allowing them a cheeky drink (gotta settle those nerves, right?) before some creative portraits on the lawn. Their bonding moment was gold, and I headed back to capture Helen, who was almost ready for her grand entrance. We moved over from the Blacksmiths cottage to the old dairy cottage, where Helen got into her wedding dress, and applied the final touches.

The converted 18th-century barn is a perfect space to say your ‘I do’s!’

Before we knew it, all the guests were in the barn, eagerly awaiting the ceremony. Helen looked stunning, Graham looked sharp, and the ceremony was a rollercoaster of emotions. Blink, and they were officially Mr & Mrs! (Congratulations! Post-ceremony, we kicked off with an epic confetti throw, followed by a drinks reception and group photos. Lucky for us, the weather played nice, giving us ample time outside before heading back to the barn for the wedding feast and evening shenanigans. Again, another big shout out to Helen & Graham for being troopers with the bride and groom portraits. Every wild idea I threw, you embraced. And your ideas? Well, they turned into some ‘hero’ images!

I look forward to returning to Huntsmill Farm, to capture another couple’s special day!

From speeches to the dance floor, time flew by. The decision to skip the traditional wedding cake in favour of a colossal chocolate fountain was a stroke of genius. And the matching aprons to avoid chocolate mishaps while feeding each other? Hilarious and utterly cool, in my book. Helen even owned up to needing the apron – apparently, she can be a bit messy! (Sorry, Helen, had to spill the beans!)

From start to finish, the day was flawless. Here’s to a lifetime of happiness, Helen & Graham. And a massive thank you for not just treating me as your photographer but as a friend. Cheers to making memories that’ll last a lifetime!
