I know lots of photographers fancy being a destination wedding photographer, flying off on far flung adventures overseas, but not me. No, this Brewerstreet Farmhouse wedding mere minutes from my house in Redhill suited me down to the ground! It’s such a lovely location and setting, out in the countryside with just fields and country roads around you. The marquee really looked stunning, they certainly know how to make it look special. Kat and Roberto are such a lovely couple too! They wanted their wedding to be relaxed and fun and that is exactly how it turned out.
The wedding morning
Kat was getting ready at her parents house which was just a short drive from the venue. It was such a lovely laid back atmosphere and good fun. I also very much enjoyed a quick tour of her mum’s many Harry Potter film posters and other fan paraphernalia. I always have time for anything Potter related!
We then made our way over to the Brewerstreet Farmhouse. They have a room where Kat and her bridesmaids could get dressed and enjoy a glass or two of prosecco (of course!). The room overlooks the glorious gardens which were out in full colourful bloom. It’s also hidden away from where the guests were congregating by the marquee.
Brewerstreet Farmhouse wedding
The great thing about having a Brewerstreet Farmhouse wedding is that everything can happen at that one location. They have a wooden canopy where you can have your wedding ceremony. This is attached to a marquee to cover all your guests in case of less than ideal weather conditions. Then your reception will be in a huge marquee with a section for your dance floor. The marquee at Kat and Roberto’s Brewerstreet Farmhouse wedding really did look beautiful.
I really liked the table names at this wedding. Kat and Roberto had named their tables after couples that had featured in famous films or TV shows such as Homer & Marge Simpson, Zack & Kelly, Carrie & Mr Big and Scott & Charlene. Absolutely LOVED this idea! Especially because most of them were from shows popular in the 90s which, let’s face it, was a truly excellent era for television. They had lots of other lovely details as well, such as small bottles of limoncello as favours (a nod to Roberto’s Italian heritage) a rustic wooden table plan covered in ivy and an incredible white floral cake.
A relaxed wedding day
I have loved looking back through the photos of this wedding and reminding myself what a beautiful, relaxed and fun wedding day it was. Kat and Roberto are such a chilled out couple and their Brewerstreet Farmhouse wedding really reflected this side of their personalities. It was a day full of love and plenty of laughter (particularly during the speeches!) and some excellent dance moves at the end.
