So this was the wedding I almost didn't shoot!
When Lucy and Matt first contacted me asking if I was available to shoot their wedding, I told them I would pass their enquiry on to a few photographer friends as I was fully booked for the year. However, every now and then I get a feeling I should (or shouldn't - less often!) do something and this was one of those times. So I went back to them and told them I would take the booking...and wow am I glad I did!
Redhouse Barn is up there in my top 5 favourite venues (and that's not only because of the absolutely amazing food I get from Morgan's Catering - I promise!) and I have LOVED every wedding I have shot there. This one was no exception; although I was only there for a half day coverage (5 hours) we packed so much in and had a great time. Lucy was pretty nervous about being in front of the camera, however the pre-wedding shoot (something I now include in all of my packages for this very reason) had put both her and Matt at ease somewhat so it was much less daunting on the day!
Lucy, her parents and her two sisters got ready in the beautiful bridal prep room at the venue, and after guests had arrived and been greeted by a very dapper looking groom, it was time for the ladies to venture down, through to the intimate ceremony in the barn with Lucy walked down the aisle by her Dad. The little pockets of light that find their way into the ceremony room at Redhouse Barn make great spotlights as the bridal party walk down the aisle, and afterwards, although we weren't blessed with blue skies and glorious sunshine, it was a lovely afternoon for group photos and some romantic couple shots in the gardens...
The reception room was beautifully decoarated, with the table theme being something my husband would have been impressed by; tables were named after famous motorsport tracks, complete with a little track map on the table name card! This, along with other little personal touches throughout the day, injected Lucy's and Matt's personalities into their wedding day and venue, making sure the day was full of fun and laughter!
