Mid-week weddings are fantastic, they are usually very relaxed affairs, a mid-week wedding at South Farm, Shingay can only be described as an absolute dream, This is a venue I have been visiting for a few years now and I absolutely love the place. The grounds are simply stunning with so many lovely places to take photos, you really are spoilt for choice.
You can imagine my excitement in that case when I saw Sacha & Michael had booked it for their wedding, I say a wedding it was actually a blessing as they were married one year previous in the United Sates.
Sacha was a little quieter than I had seen previously, I'll put it down to the nerves. I left Sacha in her room having her make-up 'done' as I had spotted Michael outside sporting a very fetching outfit which really did suit (no pun intended) him very well. He wore a black tail coat with top hat and gloves all in black, he looked the business.
The weather was perfect although the forecast in the morning mentioned rain, fortunately it stayed away so the ceremony could be held outside. The guests were seated in the garden, Michael was standing looking back for the arrival of his wife, Sacha was just having a final look in the mirror and given reassuring complements by the bridesmaids, her two sisters, Michele & Deborah. The music started, the guests turned to await Sacha's arrival, she was met just in front of the pond by Michael and then they both walked over to the summer house.
The ceremony was a simple affair and conducted by Michael's father, David. A short talk and then they exchanged new rings, that was it, they exited the summer house and walked back through the guests to a hearty round of applause. The rest of the afternoon was very relaxing, lots of chatting, drinking and the children running around the garden.
Eventually they made their way over to the barn for the wedding breakfast which if I know South Farm was a sumptuous affair as the food there is simply devinne.
Congratulations Sacha & Michael, I have a great day as I hope did you.
