Last year I had the pleasure of providing Jevan and Sandhya’s Curradine Barns wedding photography.
It was a lovely bright spring day in late May and I started it off by heading over to Image Hair and Beauty Salon to photograph the bride surrounded by her friends and family. There were smiles all round and I had a great time making use of all the mirrors and reflected light. Sandhya’s bridal look was lovely and natural, complete with small sprigs of gypsophila.
From there I went to the wedding venue, tucked away between the rolling hills of the Worcestershire countryside. Curradine Barns never fails to delight and surprise. From the red brick courtyard to the 19th-century barn interior it offers an enchanted, rustic aesthetic with a warm and friendly atmosphere. Curradine Barns Wedding Photography has something to offer all year round no matter the weather and I’ve enjoyed photographing several weddings at this charming venue.
The civil ceremony took place in the Granary Barn – a lovely place for wedding photography with lots of light and open space. The exposed brickwork and original oak beams make for a wonderfully vibrant setting, and Jevan and Sandhya said their vows and exchanged rings surrounded by twinkling golden fairy lights.
Sandyha looked beautiful in a white gown by (supplier) and a bouquet of (flower arrangement) by (supplier). Jevan meanwhile wore a blue navy suit by (supplier).
Having shot Curradine Barns wedding photography before, I knew all the best spots for the newlywed’s photoshoot from the redbrick paths in the courtyard to the garden gazebo.
The wedding reception took place in the Barley Barn, an airy and charming space that had plenty of natural daylight shining in through the large windows. Jevan and Sandhya’s reception was full of personal touches like little paper hummingbird place names and lavender table centres. The cake itself was quirky and fun, showing the personalities of the couple with fondant figures: an orangutan, kangaroo, elephant, bluebirds and SuperMario!
There was also a second cake to accompany the main wedding cake surrounded by matching cupcakes. The vivid blue telephone box was instantly recognisable and many of the guests had great
fun picking out the Doctor Who themed references – another fun, personal touch.
Next came the speeches and some traditional dancing which really got the evening off to a flying start. From then on it was wood-fired pizza from the Cantina all round and time to dance the night away.
As the daylight faded I whisked Jevan and Sandhya away for one last photoshoot beneath the fairy lights. It was a lovely end to the evening and I thoroughly enjoyed my time photographing Jevan and Sandhya’s wedding at Curradine Barns. I wish you both the very best for the years ahead and hope you have many happy and special years together.
