Today I am thrilled to share this colourful relaxed Farm Wedding at Northside Farm in Northumberland.
Jenny and Tom envisaged a laid back, fun and family orientated day for their celebration and not even a spot of rain could dampen their happiness on their beautiful Big Day..
Images were captured by Carn Patrick Photography.

Carn says of the couples day…
I spent the morning of the wedding with Jenny, her mum Pip, sister Sally and best friends Carol and Rachel, as well as Jenny’s 6 year old nephew, Ben.
All of the girls were totally excited for the day ahead, and they looked amazing thanks to the skills of Tina Elliot and Victoria Forshaw.
It wasn’t long before Jenny and the girls were almost ready and we were joined by Jenny’s dad, David.
It was then time to travel to the ceremony.
When I got to the venue the first thing I saw was Tom’s happy smiling face and I knew it was going to be a perfect day, and the ceremony was lovely.
Pip and Tom’s sister both made fantastic readings, with Tom’s dad and brothers also playing their part in making the day unforgettable!
One of Tom’s best friends runs their own bakery, Batch and payed their part by making their very special wedding cake!
The forecast was for non stop rain and thunder storms but no one was phased by the weather!
I always keep some clear umbrellas in the car just in case, and they came in handy later for the couples portraits.
All in all it was a beautiful celebration that saw two caring and loving families come together as one!
I hand over to beautiful Bride Jenny…
How did you meet?
We met at work. We both work in the cellular pathology department in the Royal Victoria infirmary in Newcastle.
It took about 6 months of emailing before we finally went on a date!
Tell us about the Engagement…
We went for a weekend away in Edinburgh and Tom suggested a walk up Arthur’s Seat.
He waited until we were in a quiet spot, got down on one knee and produced a bottle of champagne, a scotch egg and an engagement ring!
Tell us about your wedding planning journey…
We had a fairly relaxed approach to planning.
We wanted a relaxed and rustic wedding venue and found our perfect place in Northside Farm.
Everything else flowed from there!
What was the theme /colour palette of your Big Day?
We didn’t really have a theme or colour scheme, but we wanted bright colours to liven up the decorations.
The bridesmaids dresses were pale grey so the colourful bouquets and details really stood out.
What was the best bit of your day?
We have so many best bits!
The ceremony was great but relaxing afterwards with a cold glass of fizz was a wonderful feeling!
Also having a four tiered pork pie ‘cake’ was pretty special!
What advice would you give to other couples getting married?
Try and stay relaxed.
Don’t stress about the little things as everything seems to work out in the end.
And make sure you take time to enjoy yourself as the day goes so fast!
