Donington Park Farmhouse weddings

As you may know, if you’ve followed us for a while, Donington Park Farmhouse is where we were married back in 2008. So it’s always great to come back and see everyone again. So many things to like about this local wedding venue, it has a lovely relaxed feel, there is accommodation in the hotel itself and then the barns for the ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening reception. The courtyard is great for photos and there’s the awesome view over Breedon church at the front too.

The wedding day

Helen started off getting ready at her mum’s house in Swadlincote with her bridesmaids, nephews and brother. Then a lovely VW beetle came to take Helen and her brother James to the barn, with a VW camper for the bridesmaids. They had their ceremony inside the beautiful Threshing Barn, then outside for pretty much the rest of the day! The sun was shining and it was a beautiful summers afternoon for a change. After we’d finished the group photos, we headed off for a wander with the bridesmaids and groomsmen for some stop motion fun and games before it was time for dinner.

A walk in the evening sun

Sometimes we leave the bride and groom photos until after dinner if we know the weather is on our side – the light is so much nicer and let’s face it, everyone’s had a couple of drinks and have got speeches out of the way, so everything is a lot more relaxed and that’s just what we did with Helen and Dan. A wander around for 10 minutes, into the nearby corn field, through the tree lined driveway and into the hotel for a few quiet moments before returning to the party and the chaos that was unfolding during the tequila shot fuelled, adult Giant Jenga!!

Any then… the moment every photographer waits for all day long, not the buffet, but the gorgeous few minutes of ‘golden hour’ sunshine in the evening. We couldn’t resist – so after the first dance, we quickly took a walk up the road to the horizon to play in this beautiful sunshine!!

Helen and Dan are such a great couple – so much fun and perfect together in every way – it was an awesome day! Here are just a few of our favourites, be sure to click through to the Full Gallery at the bottom of the page!
