Potash Farm | Norfolk Wedding Photography | Anna & Martin
Casting my mind back to the summer of 2018 at Potash Farm. I remember it well as my wife was overdue expecting our second child, but she assured me she wasn’t going to go into labour that day, so off I went early that Saturday morning.
I met with the lovely couple at Number 10 The Abbey, a luxury hotel in the heart of the Norfolk town of Wymondham. It is here where Anna & Martin were getting spruced up for their wedding day. They had already done the legal bits and bobs the day before. So once suited and booted, we broke the conventional order of things and had some wedding pics in the grounds of the Abbey.
Anna & Martin had a beautifully relaxed wedding day. Probably the most chilled wedding of 2018. Think open fields, tipis, bell tents, miniature donkeys, pizza, chill out zones and live music! Potash Farm near Wymondham was the location for their special day.
TYING THE KNOT
The ceremony was in a woodland setting with straw bale seating for their guests and colourful pom poms in the trees.
Ever wondered where the phase “tying the knot” comes from? Well this couple did actually tie the knot! Handfasting is an ancient Celtic ritual in which the hands are tied together to symbolise the binding of two lives.
Confetti donkeys, from Miniature Donkeys for Wellbeing, furnished guests with confetti for the couple.
The whole day was very atmospheric. Anna was very musical. Together with members of the congregation, she had a ‘jam’ session with a variety of musical instruments in the chill out tipi. It was great to see even children playing! Rugs, blankets and sofas inside the tipis were centred around a fire pit ready for when the evening turned chilly.
Wood fired pizza followed by delicious ice-cream was on the menu for the day. I was even lucky enough to sample some for myself!
Instead of having a traditional guest book, guests were invited to write their well wishes on a love heart instead. Ready to drop into the wooden frame to remember the day.
In the evening, the wedding entertainment was a ceilidh. It was lovely to see guests of all ages joining in and having fun!
Oh and my wife was right. She didn’t go into labour that day!
I’ll leave you with a few more of my favourites from the day. If you’re planning your wedding, whether it’s a chilled out occasion like Anna & Martin’s at Potash Farm or in a more traditional setting, check out my wedding photography page. As always, I’d love to meet up and chat about your plans!
