Soho Farmhouse weddings are always amazing. I love working there. In fact, given half a chance, I’d rather like to live there. I think I’m going to run a Kickstarter campaign…
The Soho group have nailed it with the setting and design. It’s my dream location to shoot as a wedding photographer. I was lucky enough to grow up in the Cotswolds and attribute my style of photography to the trees, fields and skies that surrounded me in my formative years.
This will come as no surprise to anyone who is familiar with my fashion or wedding photography. Whilst some days a studio, with all its controlled variables is a blessing, I’m never happier than out on location in a pair of wellies!
It’s as if they designed Soho Farmhouse for me with this in mind…. wellies everywhere! Throw in the log cabins, lakes and horses and I’m right at home (See aforementioned Kickstarter campaign).
I was really excited when my great friend Natalie, then planner at Barnsley House in Gloucestershire, told me that she was moving over to the Soho Farmhouse in Oxfordshire when it opened the following year. We’d worked together for years at Barnsley and always had a great time (My words, not hers).
Thanks to her recommendation, I photographed one of the first big weddings at Soho Farmhouse, and it was completely amazing. I’ve been fortunate enough to have been back a number of times since and always jump at the chance when a Soho Farmhouse weddings gig is offered.
My girlfriend, Diana Vizcaya, is one of the resident Dj’s at Soho House Dean Street in London and played at the Farmhouse pool party this summer. This was promptly followed by a 12 hour straight soaking in one of the cabin baths. It was at this point that British countryside was beginning to make sense even to her…
I’m based in East London each summer, so no great distance to travel to Soho Farmhouse weddings!
I do ask that my travel and accommodation expenses are covered, but I will usually take a Zip car which works out around £120, and am happy to stay nearby if all the accommodation on site is booked for your guests.
Whilst I am getting to know most corners of the place, I do like to travel up the day before to walk through the plan for the day and run my ideas past you.
Diana is also London based during the summer and loves to crash my weddings. You can see her Dj profile here!
