Lindsay and Jonathan had a wonderful wedding weekend at Ridge Farm Studios in Rusper in Surrey. Ridge Farm is a fabulous old farm house with a difference as tucked away down this Sussex country lane is a recording studio that saw the likes of Queen, Pearl Jam and Roxy Music to name a few, lay down tunes here in surroundings complete with pool, fit for any rock star! It is also somewhere I hold dear as I have stayed here for a couple of fab residential photography courses with Photography Farm, so arriving for their day felt like a home-coming. Ginny, Lindsay’s sister, met me in the car park with a big hug. She’s a photographer too, but she was videoing the day for them and so it was great to walk in to the kitchen where everyone was getting ready together. It was lovely to pop over to the Pool House and meet Bex of Blush Floral Design who was installing the most amazing florals and seeing Lindsay’s reaction to her bouquet was a treat! An epic 1967 Mustang arrived to take Lindsay to church and deliver her back with Jonathan after their ceremony! The reception was so relaxed, with rolling countryside all around and the warmth of the sun making it just fabulous. Their reception was served in the pool house, with great speeches and Lindsay’s Mum composed and performed a song for them which was a total tear jerker! After the meal, muchos antics ensued outside in the paddock with a horse box photo booth, pizza oven and serious competitions of human pyramids before everyone hit the dance floor. I totally adored capturing their day, so clearly made for each other and a beautiful relaxed celebration to kick off the start of married life together. This is a favourite – the blankets the lay on were crafted by Lindsay’s Gran – how wonderful!
