Farm Camp Wedding, Winsley
Lizzie & Eddy | Temple Minerva & Farm Camp, Winsley
“We couldn’t have asked for anything more from a wedding photographer, Simon was incredible. So easy to work with, super professional, discreet, friendly and relaxed, he captured the most perfect photos of our day from start to finish. It’s made us so happy to have such beautiful memories to look back on and share with our guests. Thank you Simon.”
1. WHAT DO YOU GUYS DO? WHAT IS IMPORTANT IN LIFE TO YOU? HOW DO YOU SPEND YOUR FREE TIME?
Eddy and I work hard but we play hard too, we spend most of our free time outdoors, and always love a new adventure. If we get the chance you’ll usually find us in the mountains (hiking, climbing, running, skiing or biking), or by the sea (sailing, swimming or paddle-boarding). Though the most important thing to us in the world is our 1 year old little girl Amelie and our friends and family.
2. THE PROPOSAL: HOW DID IT HAPPEN, WHAT’S THE STORY?
Eddy proposed exactly 10 years after our first date! We were ski touring in Colorado at the time and had just spent the night in one of the 10th Mountain Division Huts, we were skiing back down from the hut and Eddy stopped to ask me what the time was, then totally took me by surprise by asking me to marry him, I didn’t stop smiling for days.
3. WHAT MADE THE FARM CAMP THE PERFECT VENUE CHOICE FOR YOU?
We were looking for something a bit different in a wedding venue, something relaxed and a bit wild to reflect our passion for the outdoors. From the moment we drove down the bumpy track to the Farm Camp, we knew it was the perfect spot for us. Remote, quiet, beautifully basic, and just a bit magic. The owner Tim was so welcoming and we fell in love with the place instantly, even better was the fact we were able to rent out the entire camp for a few days and spend the entire weekend enjoying time with our friends and family, the kids loved being able to run wild around the camp too. Ours was the first wedding hosted at the Farm Camp and we feel so lucky that Tim took a punt on us and let us use his beautiful venue for our wedding.
4. WHY DID YOU CHOOSE SIMON BIFFEN TO PHOTOGRAPH YOUR WEDDING?
We’ve known Simon as a friend for a few years and as soon as we started wedding planning, we knew we wanted Simon to be our photographer, he was the first person we called, before we had even booked our venue. Having been to a few of our friends wedding which Simon also photographed, we knew he would capture beautiful photos, be discreet, and make us and all of our guests instantly feel at ease.
5. WHAT KIND OF EXPERIENCE DID YOU WANT FOR YOUR GUESTS?
A relaxed, fun, outdoor experience, with delicious food and great music. We wanted kids to feel welcome at the wedding too, so we made lots of effort to ensure there were lots of fun activities for them too.
6. WHAT WERE THE MOST MEMORABLE MOMENTS FROM YOUR DAY?
We genuinely didn’t stop smiling the entire day, the whole day was incredible, the ceremony was emotional and beautiful, the reception and speeches were amazing, the food was cooked over open fire in the woods and it was so good, we loved all of it!
7. ANY TIPS FOR FUTURE COUPLES PLANNING THEIR WEDDING?
Break the rule book, do what you want, don’t feel pressured into doing things you don’t want to do. It’s your day, so do what makes you happy and make it ‘you’. On the day just relax and enjoy every moment
