A year later than planned, my gorgeous pals Beth and Kieran finally had their wedding at Stock Farm Barn with their three dogs, their best people and family and I absolutely didn’t cry at all. This was my first wedding Stock Farm and I could immediately see why Beth and Kieran loved it so much; a large barn for entertaining with cool filament bulbs to adorn top table, a charming courtyard and lovely grounds for portraits and of course, Stock Farm is dog friend friendly which was a must for these two and their pack!
HOW DID YOU MEET?
We met way back when in college, but didn’t get together until our 2nd year of uni.
Beth threw up in my uni halls toilet and later that night I told her I wanted her to be my girlfriend!
TELL ME YOUR PROPOSAL STORY
We went for a weekend away in the Lake District and I had planned to walk up to Rydal cave, but we got a little bit lost and I was getting pretty stressed and Beth couldn’t understand why!
We finally made it to Rydal caves and we had the place to ourselves, I popped the question near the stepping stones into the cave!
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE STOCK FARM BARN FOR YOUR WEDDING DAY?
Because it had accommodation for family and it’s DOG FRIENDLY!!
DOG FRIENDLY WEDDING VENUE IN THE NORTH WEST OF ENGLAND
WHAT WAS IT THAT YOU LOVED ABOUT YOUR OUTFITS AND ACCESSORIES AND WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THEM?
I had a fox lapel pin because I was joining the Fox family, and Beth had her mums jewellery that she wore for her wedding day.
TELL ME ABOUT THE VISION YOU HAD FOR YOUR WEDDING
We had a wildflower theme, we just wanted lots of colour!
WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST DANCE AND WHY DID YOU CHOOSE IT?
Missing Piece by Vance Joy, we feel the chorus fits us very well
“Because when I’m in a room with you
That missing piece is found (oh)
You know when you’re by my side, darling
Nothing can bring us down (oh)”
(Beth’s actual answer: Good song init)
WHAT WERE THE MOST WONDERFUL PARTS OF THE DAY FOR YOU?
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE HANNAH HALL PHOTOGRAPHY AS YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER, AND WHAT WAS YOUR EXPERIENCE OF YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY ON THE DAY?
Didn’t know any other photographers. So had to go with you. Definitely didn’t know anyone else…
Joke, you were absolutely amazing, your humour is exactly like ours and we’ve always gelled with you
WHAT WOULD BE YOUR BEST BIT OF ADVICE TO OTHER COUPLES PLANNING THEIR WEDDING?
Rope family and your wedding party into actually helping. Don’t put it all on yourself…. Remember its YOUR day and you can’t please everyone.
