Cripps Barn wedding.
Henrietta and Simon were married at the beautiful wedding venue at Cripps Barn in the Cotswolds.
The day started at the Swan Hotel Bibury, a stunning wedding venue in its own right set in the beautiful village of Bibury.
Both bride and groom prepared for the wedding day in the hotel so there was a little bit of juggling to do to keep them from seeing each other as they got ready.
The boys were in good spirit and the groom and groomsmen took the chance to have a little nerve settler at the bar as the bride and her bridesmaids had a glass of bubbly and got ready.
The boys travelled to Cripps Barn in a VW camper van supplied by Silk & Satin Weddings, the van had been restored to a very high quality and looked amazing.
Once the boys had left I returned to the ladies who were finishing off and getting ready to get changed, Henrietta looks stunning in her dress and there were a few tears shed by her bridesmaids.
Once the bride was ready we shot round to Cripps Barn to get a few photographs of the guests and await the bride’s arrival.
The camper went back to collect the bridesmaids but the bride arrived in style in a black Porsche, not the easiest of cars for a bride in a wedding dress to get out of but Henrietta pulled it off. Cripps Barn was beautifully decorated as always and the wedding service was relaxed and informal.
Once the formalities were over we took the opportunity to get a couple of photographs with the couple and some candid photographs of the guests before the wedding breakfast and the speeches.
Before I knew it it was time to set up for the first dance, lighting a barn isn’t the easiest but I’ve had lots of practice in these environments and was delighted with the results. A lovely couple, a stunning venue and a beautiful day, all helped to get wedding pictures I am delighted with.
