Farm weddings are a real joy at this time of year, although they do carry a certain degree of risk - even the lightest summer shower creates mud, livestock can be smelly and farm machinery can become an intrusive feature of your ceremony.
There are fantastic advantages too - barns make amazing wedding reception venues, the countryside is the most wonderful backdrop for wedding photos and you’ll often find that on-farm catering is both cost effective and wholesome. However, when Brad and Janessa McKillens, from Ontario, Canada, got married, they didn’t realise that in one of their wedding photos there were two cows humping in the background! Janessa found the picture so hilarious that she sent it to the Ellen DeGeneres show and it got a national airing on American TV. So beware - when love is in the air, it’s everywhere!
