Helen & Simon, A Wedding in Kirby Bellars

Helen and Simon chose the best place to get married – Helen’s parents farm. Whilst this is the perfect farm to begin with, nestled in between lush green fields and rolling hills as well as being conveniently close the the cutest church, I could not get over the fact how nice it is to get married at home. Anytime you need something? No problem, you just pop in the house. Because you’re at home!

Giving the wedding a festival character Helen and Simon dragged a whole load of haybales around, their friends camped out in a field right next to the farm (even the happy couple camped out there on their wedding night!) and they had a few kegs of ale from the local brewery to wash down what was essentially a tasty, tasty dinner. This was topped by an ice cream bicycle, hog roast in the barn with games and some proper rock n’ roll dancing.

In case you were wondering how to throw a summer party – this is it. I’m not sure where you’d get a vintage tractor from to take you to church, though.

I am flattered, honoured and more than happy to have been a part of this, thank you Helen and Si! Thanks for letting me take advantage of your mum’s hayfever medication stash and sorry for the sniffles and sneezing, what did I expect with all this nature and hay! I did love every minute of your day and may need to come back for an extended holiday at the farm so let me know when your mum starts renting out rooms. All the best for your little family – what a fantastic way to get it all started!

Wow stunning photos as usual Ann!
Love the tractor and games! Very fun looking wedding!


Thanks, Ad! It really was a lot of fun. I think everyone enjoyed themselves immensely.


You’ve captured a beautiful wedding beautifully – looked like the most perfect day. Great Work :D


This wedding has more amazing than you can shake a stick at. I’m enthralled by it. I love how Helen’s dad drove her to the church on the tractor and Simon drove her away again. It’s not just that it’s a beautiful vehicle, quirky and fun but it’s also so profoundly symbolic and meaningful. Fantastic. The wedding. The photography. Of course!


Wow, this a bloody amazing! What stunning pictures of one of the coolest loveliest weddings there ever was! You really have nailed every element of love, fun, joy and laughter that took place! Love! Xx


Love this wedding Ann, it looks such fun. Brilliant photography. Every wedding should have a vintage tractor for the bride to arrive on!
