Victoria and Rob’s Barn Wedding at Houchins Farm in Essex
Victoria and Rob’s Wedding at the stunning Barn at Houchins Farm will easily be one of my most memorable weddings to date. The runup to the wedding I’d been slightly nervous. It was around the time my first child was due to be born, so there was an element of what if they are born on the wedding day. I had some foolproof plans in place, but still, it didn’t stop the nerves. Luckily Finley my son arrived a few days earlier than the wedding day which worked out great for everyone.
The Wedding Venue: Houchins Farm
As I arrived on the mild summers day at the beautiful Houchin’s Farm I was giddy with excitement. Not only was I still buzzing from the birth of my first born, this was the second wedding I’d done for the “Swaine family”. I’d photographed Rob’s sisters wedding the previous year at Hylands House so it was nice to be invited back and see some familiar faces. The Venue is easily one of my favourite venues I’ve ever photographed at. It’s simply stunning, and I couldn’t have been happier. It’s lovely how everything is in close proximity to the huge field out back which is perfect for afternoon portraits. Despite not feeling a 100% first thing in the morning I think you’ll agree Victoria made a striking bride, and her bridal party couldn’t contain their emotion at how beautiful she looked.

As she walked down the aisle to meet Rob and their eyes locked for the first time, it was like the radiance had returned along with her stunning smile. The only person’s smile who was even a match for it was the very dapper looking Rob. Like he’d won the lottery. Perhaps it was the nerves dissipating, perhaps it was the first kiss, but I’m very happy to say Victoria felt much better after the ceremony. The wedding was full of smiles, laughter, love topped off with wonderful friends and family. I was lucky enough to share the experience with my creative partner in crime HaxAhmet-Films.co.uk who was filming the day.
Thank you Victoria and Rob for letting me capture your day, it will be one of my most memorable weddings, for many reasons. I’m sure you’ll all agree it really was a beautiful barn wedding and one to be remembered for a lifetime.
