I always love returning to shoot wedding photography at Curradine Barns and I always love working with great couples like Megan and Rob. I’ll get back to all the reason why I love shooting wedding photography at Curradine Barns. Let’s start at the beginning of Megan and Rob’s day.
I arrived nice and early to catch up Megan and her bridal party who were getting ready in Curradine Barns lovely bridal dressing room. Megan was in safe hands and good spirits!
I then caught up with Rob who with his best man was making his final preparations. And once dressed, with a banjo in hand, he was ready to go!
Guests began to arrive and were milling around Curradine Barn’s beautiful courtyard. Now I get to talk a bit more about shooting wedding photography at Curradine Barns. Originally constructed as a grain store, these red brick barns are a fine example of early 19th-century rural architecture and restored so lovingly that they are now contemporary and atmospheric wedding venue with tons of character.
Megan looked beautiful in a vintage lace detail dress that suited her and the venue perfectly. Megan looked so comfortable as a bride and Rob rocked a three-piece tweed suit!
The ceremony was held in the incredibly romantic Granary Barn. It is the cosiest barn I’ve ever been in and Megan and Rob had chosen a combination of sunflowers, fairy lights and bunting to create the most beautiful atmosphere. The double doors allow natural light to flood in and allow everybody direct access onto the courtyard. It’s a stunning barn, take a look at my images!
After the beautiful ceremony, everybody spilt outside to the pretty courtyard for a drinks reception and enjoyed musical accompaniment from a string quartet. There was time for some group and fun shots of everybody and whilst all of their guests were happily mingling I quickly whisked Megan and Rob away for some gorgeous portrait shots of the two of them around the grounds of Curradine Barns. That’s another thing I love about shooting wedding photography at Curradine Barns, the outside space. The red brick buildings and beautifully landscaped gardens provide the most beautiful backdrop when photographing my couples.
The wedding reception was held in the idyllic Barley Barn. Rustic in style it has whitewashed walls, original beams (adorned with fairy lights) and stone floors. The neutral colour scheme meant that Megan and Rob could dress the venue as they wished and continued with the beautiful sunflowers theme that matched with the ambience of the room.
Curradine Barns have their own exclusive caterer ‘Galloping Gourmet’ who provided a sumptuous wedding breakfast meal for Megan, Rob and their guests. After the meal, there were some very well received speeches and the cutting of the most amazing wedding cake. Now I’ve seen a lot of wedding cakes but this one was so ornate and original.
Megan, Rob and their guests then headed back out to the courtyard to make the most of the early evening sunshine and I got a chance to take some great shots of everybody relaxing and enjoying themselves.
The evening reception was held back in the Granary Barn which brings me to yet another reason why I love shooting wedding photography at Curradine Barns. The rooms and barns all lead into each and onto the courtyard. Guests never feel that they are in a large disjointed venue with empty spaces. At Curradine Barns the exclusive use and the flowing layout give the venue a cosy celebratory feel.
Now I love the little quirks and details at weddings as they always tell me something about my couples’ personalities. So I loved the glitter face painting, the fun photo booth with personalised messages and the freshly baked pizza’s served in the courtyard. All helped to make Megan and Rob’s party a really fun celebration.
A gorgeously fun, rustic, romantic and laidback wedding for this lovely pair. Congratulations to Megan and Rob for getting married and thank you for allowing me to tell the story of your amazing wedding day. I loved shooting Megan and Rob’s wedding and I always love returning to shoot wedding photography at Curradine Barns.
