REBECCA & TOM – KINGSCOTE BARN, GLOUCS
It’s always exciting to visit a new venue. The opportunity to work at Kingscote Barn had us really looking forward to Becky and Tom’s wedding. There were little surprises, given the late November date, that the skies were grey and there was drizzle in the air. Nonetheless, we embrace the British conditions and continue as normal. The rain often makes for some cool moody photographs…especially in black and white.
Becky started her day at a nearby cottage where she got glam with her closest friends and family. Not forgetting the 3 pooches who had invites to the wedding as well! There was clear emotion when dad saw her in “the dress” for the first time…her bridesmaids blown away too. Rebecca looked stunning!
Tom and his groomsmen got ready at the venue, and we there to greet guests as they began to arrive. The groom got increasingly nervous as the clock ticked, waiting in anticipation for his bride to be.
Nerves were immediately erased as he saw Becky walking down the aisle. The overwhelming emotions triggered a tear or two. It was clear that Tom was relieved to be reunited with his love. The ceremony commenced, witnessed by their humble guests…and the dogs, of course!
Being mindful that daylight would be limited, I made the decision to take the newly weds away for photographs immediately after the ceremony. The ground was clearly wet and muddy. Becky was overly obliging to do what she needed to do to get the best shots possible. We visited the onsite farm, and got some incredible photographs from high up on the hill, with Kingscote Barn a charming, sandstone feature in the background. It was cold, and it was wet, but we had some great fun nonetheless.
Upon returning to the venue, I was mindful to capture a few family photos before leaving the couple and their guests to get warm and grab a drink. The barn looked stunning as the light started to drop. Kingscote’s ceiling was ordained with fairy lights and the tables illuminated by candle light. The exposed brick, although raw, offered a natural simplicity and uninterrupted backdrop for the photography.
Guests settled down for dinner and the speeches followed. I then invited everyone outside for a guard of honour styled sparkler shot. This signified the beginning of the evening party. There was a cake cutting and dancing – some good, some not so! Everyone had an awesome time celebrating nonetheless!
