Nicola & Duncan Oaks Barn
Mark and Mary started the day by capturing Nicolaâ€™s bridal preparations at her parents home in Caterham. The usual excitement and chatter resonated around the home, as proud parents looked on.
As the final touches for hair and make up were being made, we headed off to Oaks Farm Barn, the venue of choice for Nicola and Duncanâ€™s happy occasion.
Oaks Farm Barn is an idyllic wedding venue, set against a backdrop of rolling hills and rural beauty, in Surrey. The venue itself also has a quaint one bedroom cottage attached to it, where bridesmaids and the brideâ€™s parents fussed around Nicola as she stepped into her gorgeous strapless Justin Alexander gown and the bridesmaids got changed into their prom style black dresses. To add a touch of colour they each held sunflowers â€“ simple yet stunning, whilst Nicola held Cala Lillies.Â After a few pre ceremony photos of the bride and groom the ceremony took place.
As Nicola walked into the room, Duncan fought with his emotions as his stunning bride took his breath away â€“ with the emotion continuing as the ceremony went on.
Once the rings had been exchanged â€“ carried by Duncanâ€™s gorgeous son, Connor, and the register signed, the newlyweds headed into the conservatory and onto the terrace to receive well wishes and greetings from family and friends.
Reception drinks and canapÃ©s were served on the lawn, to the sound of a string quartet, as group photos were taken. Once completed. Mark took the photographed Nicola and Duncan utilizing the stunning grounds, complete with lily pond andÂ landscaped lawns and gardens, capturing intimate portraits of the two of them, before the rain set in.
Reception drinks continued in the conservatory as we recorded all the table decorations and details, and a cake cutting of the yummy cheesecake!
As Nicola and Duncan, the happy newlyweds and guests were called through for the wedding breakfast, the MHP team left them to enjoy their celebrations long into the night.
