Hadsham Farm Wedding Photographer // Emily & Jono
I’m honoured to be a recommended Hadsham Farm Wedding Photographer. In a Cotswold Vallery near Banbury in Oxfordshire, Hadsham Farm is a truly special venue unlike any I’ve seen. If you’d like a wedding that is largely outdoors, features an awesome multi-room tipi, a lake and camping for your guests, this is the venue for you! Best yet, you can completely make your wedding your own as it’s a ‘dry hire’ venue. Choose a catering company you love, stock up the bar with drinks of your choice and party late! No corkage fees, no hassles.
This featured wedding was shot on the hottest day of 2018! It was an absolute scorcher but the tipi provided much welcome shelter from the sun. Around the tipi, there was enough space to have a humanist ceremony, set up games, etc. The lake was a much-loved feature and formed a very peaceful backdrop. The perimeter around it was excellent for photos of the lovely couple. Speaking of which…
If you happen to know Emily and Jono you are a very lucky person. Two of the most lovely, adventure fueled, adrenaline junky and caring humans I’ve ever met. They’re two of my best friends and I was humbled to be Emily’s best man. Complete paddler nutters, kayak paddles were used to form the centrepiece for the ceremony. Emily & Jono chose to have a humanist ceremony which was conducted by the lovely Judy from Cherish Ceremonies. Judy did an amazing job incorporating cultural aspects of Jono’s Jewish heritage with things that were uniquely Emily and Jono, such a ceremonial espresso martini drinking! They also included handfasting in their ceremony which again I was humbled to be a part of. Incidentally, my wife and I enjoyed the handfasting so much we included it on our own wedding the following year!
Delicious Indian inspired food was served by Heena’s kitchen and we enjoyed speeches by Emily, me (!), Jono’s 3 brothers and Emily’s Dad. Before we knew it our eardrums, hearts and souls were being treated to the riotous sounds of The Destroyers! A band like no other and certainly not your average wedding band! Uptempo Eastern European Folk Euphoria is my best attempt at describing them. My man Rav C DJ’d until late keeping those good vibes following. Before climbing into my camper for the night the remaining few enjoyed a few beers around the firepit. How better to end a glorious day!

Finally, here’s a picture of my wife Rach, me, Emily & Jono. There should, after all, be at least one photo that includes the best man, right? 🙂
