Another little wedding that I didn’t want to slip through the net before I move on to more recent weddings…
This is one of the smallest weddings I’ve photographed and one of the most relaxed and intimate. I was booked to photograph this wedding quite late in the day and was not quite sure what to expect without too much time to prepare or get to know the bride and groom.
I have to say that I turned up at Winters Barn on a very windy, April spring day and was made to feel completely welcome. The venue is small yet absolutely perfectly formed, surrounded by fields, with a small orchard and courtyards and with the cosiest barn reception room, I fell in love with this little place as soon as I arrived. It was perfect for a truly bijou wedding, with a rustic/tea party theme and focused on the couple and their closest family.
Just asked to photograph the ceremony, with a few photos of guests and the couple after, I began with getting a few details. The bridesmaids and bride were then all ready and about to walk across the small courtyard with her dad, to her waiting groom. The ceremony was lovely, simple and meaningful with lots of smiles.
After some celebratory drinks and congratulations, there were a few very windy portraits outside, along with confetti throw. Gary and Jodie weren’t too confident about their couple portraits but we managed some beautifully romantic images, with a few laughs in between.
This really was a special wedding and just goes to show, it doesn’t matter how big or small your wedding is, its about you and whose there with you…..
