Becky and Josh – Nancarrow Farm Wedding Photographer
I first met Becky and Josh on a sunny summers day in Truro. We sat and discussed their wedding plans for their March wedding at the very beautiful Nancarrow Farm. I instantly warmed to them. Honest, friendly, relaxed and full of energy – they were great fun to be around. I was therefore more than happy when they asked me to be their wedding photographer for their big day. Role forward to March. The wedding day has arrived. It is the first of the season for Nancarrow Farm and the site looks amazing. If you haven’t been to Nancarrow Farm before it is well worth checking out. The timber framed main barn provides an incredible space for ceremonies, wedding breakfasts and receptions. The surrounding buildings include beautiful accommodation and living space (new for this year is the ‘chicken shed’ – this barn is just stunning. It has been beautifully styled and is perfect for the bridal preparation and also as an amazing bridal suite – check out the pictures below taken on the sofa).
I started the day with Becky and her bridesmaids having their hair and makeup prepared in the ‘chicken shed’. Elsewhere on the site, the food for the day was already being prepared. Food is a central part of the wedding experience at Nancarrow Farm. Ben Quinn (previously from Fifteen Cornwall) and his team of chefs have created a fantastic dining experience that is certainly different to what is offered at other venues. Combining meats cooked on outdoor grills and roasted home cooked vegetables, the food is absolutely incredible.
Hair styling and make up finished it was time for the ceremony. Helped by members of their local church, Becky and Josh had opted for a ceremony that was unique and personal to them. With the end of the ceremony, it’s was time for confetti. I love a bit of confetti. What better way to witness the start of someone’s married life, then to witness them having small bits of paper or flower petals thrown at them (this is a wedding day tradition that I still am yet to find the history behind it, I love it all the same).
With time to spare, Becky, Josh and I wandered off into the grounds of Nancarrow to get some photos of just the two of them. Nancarrow Farm is a rural venue and I wanted their photos to capture this. Old barns, a beautiful lane and even the rustic style of the ‘chicken shed’ provided a fantastic back drop for the bride and groom shots.
By the time we got to the wedding breakfast, the evening light had started to fall. Long tables with benches adds to the communal dining experience at Nancarrow. It is the best way to have a meal with family and friends. Once the wedding breakfast had finished it was time for sparklers and wedding cake. The perfect combination. As the party went on into the the evening I got captured the first dance played by Sam Fearon – he is well worth looking out for, he has got incredible talent. It was fantastic to be part of Becky and Josh’s wedding day. I hope you enjoy the pics.
