Sophie and Raph’s humanist wedding at Fiesta Fields was a truly magical experience.

Thank you so much Jamie for leading the way and for bringing me with you on this amazing day, what a fantastic experience!

The beauty of a relaxed outdoor wedding at Fiesta Fields Hidden Valley

The couple’s free-spirited nature and easygoing attitude perfectly matched The Fiesta Fields’ gorgeous locations as they both loved the idea of having a relaxed, informal wedding surrounded by their friends and family. From the natural beauty of the Fiesta Fields setting and decorations to the relaxed attire and fun activities, everything was planned with great attention to detail. The guests had a blast, and it was clear that they all shared the same feeling of joy and excitement as Sophie and Raph.

Getting ready

Whilst Jamie was taking photos of Sophie getting into her wedding dress I went to document Raph and his best friends.

There was lots of laughter, and high energy mixed with emotions as the guys got ready for the big day. They all looked so dapper in their tailored suits.

Their friendship was clear to see and it was great to be able to capture some memorable shots of them.

Receiving wedding guests coming from all over the world

When we arrived at the ceremony location at Fiesta Fields, Raph greeting their family and friends coming from all over the world was very special. The emotions were high, and the joy of seeing everyone together was palpable. The views of Hidden Valley, the rolling hills, and the green fields were absolutely stunning.

Sophie’s pre-wedding walk to the aisle at her father’s arm was absolutely beautiful and unique.

And to add even more to the uniqueness of the beautiful scenery one of them was riding a pony! I truly felt like I was in a fairytale!

The most amazing wedding day: The ceremony

The ceremony was held at a nearby spot with great views of the Hidden Valley. The sun was in the perfect position to light up their ceremony.

Even though that day in June was the most amazingly sunny day in the UK, the wind was blowing gently making it the perfect day for an outdoor wedding. 

Sophie & Raph exchanged their rings and vows in front of their friends and family that traveled from all over the world to witness their happiness.

Once the ceremony was over, capturing them as they twirl back down the aisle was pure joy to photograph.

Sophie & Raph love organised games so they came up with some great ideas to keep their guests entertained on their wedding day. Here are some crazy wedding games photos captured during Tug of war, Head Bucket Golf, or horse racing.

The speeches were emotional and heartfelt, and it was so lovely to see how much everyone cared for each other.

a great entertainment choice for your big day

The sounds of the fiddles filled the air as the ceilidh band started to play. It’s very rare that I see such energy and so much joy while people were dancing. Every now and then I would take a step back from photographing to just enjoy the atmosphere, it really was something special.

Sophie & Ralph’s festival wedding at Fiesta Fields was an absolutely perfect, magical day. Their love and energy, the natural beauty of the surroundings, and the overall joy and spontaneity of the day made it one of my favourite wedding venues in Surrey.

If you’re planning your outdoor wedding I highly recommend Fiesta Fields. Please make sure you check out Fiesta Fields’ website for more details.

The benefits of a festival wedding

Sophie & Raph festival wedding at Fiesta Fields is a perfect example of how outdoor weddings can be beautiful, fun and unique. Their special day was full of joy and laughter, and I’m so honoured to have been able to capture all the authentic emotions throughout the entire day.

1. You can have any type of ceremony you want.
