A Peak District Farm Wedding Photography at St.Giles Church and Bank Top Farm, Hartington.

Yeah the date had finally arrived, we’d been looking forward to this wedding all summer, now as the end of August approached it was here! Jen and Sam had stumbled upon Bank Top Farm in Hartington what a fab rustic venue, with hearty farm catering too – really you can’t go wrong… well we could have had a tiny little bit more sunshine!

Can you spot the headless man?!

Jen and her six bridesmaids were getting ready a stones throw from the church in Birch Cottage, quite a snug fit with all those bodies! The bouquets smelt absolutely amazing, with rosemary and lavender mixed in with the muted pinks of the flowers, shame there’s no smelly-vision on our blog :) Back at the farm the finishing touches were being made to the barn and the boys set off for St.Giles church in the middle of Hartington village. The church in Hartington is quite stunning, very English country church, with a strange ‘cage’ at the back for the bell-ringers and a beheaded man too (can you spot him!) – they must be vicious in Hartington!!

Bank Top Farm, Hartington • Perfect venue for your rustic wedding DIY dreams!

Congratulations and confetti followed before heading back to Bank Top Farm, a few guests made the short walk through White Peak lanes with their characteristic stone walls – a perfect way to arrive at a wedding reception. Back at the farm the fizz was flowing, canapés well appreciated and the weather was holding out to enjoy time in these perfect surroundings. A short portrait session before it was time for food! The barn had been magically transformed by Jen, Sam and their family, when we went to visit for a our pre-visit reci the barn was filled to the brim with ‘stuff’ – a lot of imagination on Jen and Sam’s behalf had seen this vision of rustic wedding greatness!

Wedding speeches and rain showers

Sam had been looking forward to his speech as one of the highlights of his wedding – not the usual sentiment we get from grooms, but quite obviously he was in his element, as was his best man with two very entertaining speeches from both of them. Dodging the quite heavy showers, we took to the lanes and fields around the venue, to take in all that was Peak District and farm yard rustic, with the added surreal shot too! A few tables shuffled out of the way and the dance floor was created, plenty of dancing and photo booth fun – before their favourite band of their Manchester University years graced the stage – Riot Jazz, plenty of brass and no need for mikes!

If you’re thinking of a Peak District farm wedding, then this is definitely one you have to consider and if you want funky brass at your wedding then Riot Jazz were quite phenomenal too! ;) We’d love to come too and take some pictures – check our availability here :)
