Charlie and Tom had a cracker of a wedding day at Nancarrow Farm. They tied the knot mid September on a stunning warm and sunny day. Everything was set for a great day from the start at this stunning venue tucked away in a green valley not far from Truro in Cornwall.
The venue consists of 5 beautifully converted barns tucked away in the heart of a farm. The barns overgrown by stunning rose climbers surround a pretty, south facing courtyard, great for enjoying drinks after the ceremony. The ceremony itself was held in the rustic barn with great wide open gates to either side which fills the space with beautiful natural light. There is no need for plenty of decoration, just a few flowers added and this place is just mesmerising with it’s rustic charm and laid back atmosphere.
I arrived early for the bridal preparations and was greeted by a lovely laid back bunch of girls. They were so chilled out, they stopped in the main barn for a coffee break. Same with the guys, they were in the middle of testing their cocktail skills. Stress and hassle free, that’s how every wedding day should start. Well it helps if you are at a stunning venue with plenty of sunshine..
The ceremony was beautiful and everyone ventured in the sheltered courtyard for some canapés and drinks afterwards. Charlie, Tom and I had a little stroll up the woodland lane for some photos before we went into the great barn for the wedding breakfast and speeches. I always look forward to a wedding at Nancarrow, not just because of it’s charm, but also because of the tasty feasts freshly prepared from the very best seasonal produce from local suppliers available and using their own organic meat alongside. Super tasty and a real treat on a long working day!
Charlie and Tom met working in Val Thorens doing a snow season and both love snowboarding, so the table plans were made of 2 snowboards, the guestbook was in form of a snowboard for everyone to sign and the table numbers were signs from their favourite runs in Val Thorens. I love decorations which reflect the couple’s personality. And with a lovely mint and peach colour scheme running through it, the subtle decorations looked stunning with the rustic oak beams of the barn.
The speeches were great and Charlie received a surprise present in form of 2 personalised number plates. Apparently all of Tom’s family have them and it’s a symbolic welcome into his family. It was definitely a great surprise.
The Stone Roots playing their funky tunes got everyone on the dancefloor throwing shapes early in the evening. One of my favourite parts of the day to capture, I love a great party!
Here is a small collection for you. I hope you like it, Charlie and Tom! Not long now till you receive the rest of the images..Thanks again for having me there x
