Purbeck Valley Farm Wedding Photos with Claire and Shaun

We began this day of Purbeck Valley Farm wedding photos with both Claire and Shaun at Purbeck Valley Farm. After our last farm wedding creating countryside wedding photos we could not wait. This stunning rural wedding venue is just down the road from our offices in The Isle of Purbeck countryside in Dorset.

 

Purbeck Valley Farm Wedding Photos of Bridal Preparation

At the farm house there was a hive of activity. Claire and her bridesmaids excitedly readied themselves for her Purbeck Valley Farm wedding. A peach colour bridesmaid’s dress hung on a door with two mint green ones either side. Claire’s wedding dress hung from a roof beam with the bottom just touching the floor.

After hair and make up were complete the girls got into their dresses. A final adjustment to Claire’s veil and she was ready. She exited the room to be greeted by her father who had been calmly waiting just out side.

Purbeck Valley Farm Wedding Photos of Groom Preparation

Meanwhile, after saying a quick ‘good morning’ to Claire and her bridesmaids I headed down the track to find the gents. As I walked into the field I could see many people busily putting the final touches to the amazing sailcloth Marquee supplied by Coastal Tents and the Boxpub with stretch tent. The tents had been positioned in such a way they faced out towards Corfe Castle across the Purbeck countryside.

Once they had finished their jobs Shaun and his groomsmen gathered in one of the tents to get ready. They wore dark blue trousers with brown shoes with dark grey waistcoats over crisp white shirts with gold ties. Shaun wore a slightly lighter grey jacket over his waistcoat. All suited and booted complete with yellow and pink rose buttonholes they made their way across the field.

Purbeck Valley Farm Wedding Ceremony Photos

At the same time the rear of the farm house the garden had been set for the ceremony. Shaun and his groomsmen were in place to greet guests and guide them to their seats . As the bridal party made their entrance Claire’s veil swept about in the wind. Her father then escorted her up the stone steps to her groom. Claire’s two sons (the ring bearers) remained atop the stairs under the pagoda stage left of the bride and groom. Two lovely readings were delivered to the guests either side of this open air wedding ceremony.

Most of the guests had made their way over to the marquee and Boxpub in the field. The bride and groom were ferried over by wedding tractor and trailer. They were welcomed into the field with more applause and cheering.

The Sailcloth tent was decorated with Chinese paper lanterns in greens and pinks on festoon lighting.  After some group photos against the backdrop of Corfe Castle the guests were asked to take their places and prepare to welcome the newly weds to the wedding breakfast.
