“Thank you for being the most fabulous photographer we could have asked for. You made us feel so comfortable on the day and took photos that we will treasure forever. We are so happy that we chose you. We’re going to spend the Summer printing and framing but we’re not sure how were going to narrow them down!”
Bury Court Barn Wedding
It’s been a little while since I’d photographed at Bury Court Barn but luckily Aislinn and Ben provided me with the chance to go back in April this year, the third wedding of a very busy Easter weekend! And what a wedding to finish that weekend on!! I often comment on how lucky I am that my couples are recommended to me, but when they remember me from what feels like a hundred years ago at school (I’m fairly certain I was Aislinn’s mentor when I was ten…) it’s a massive compliment to have them get in touch and book me. I was so touched to hear from Aislinn, but mainly excited to see her again after all this time and of course to meet her lovely beau, Ben! We had a natter in the pub (like I typically do with my couples pre-wedding) and I knew it was going to be an upbeat, relaxed and fun wedding full of family and laughter. Thankfully the weather held for them and they were married in a beautiful church in Chertsey, Surrey before exiting onto a very crowded pavement of confetti! We then headed over to the beautiful barn at Bury Court, one of my favourite venues, (very excited to be heading back again next year!) for reception drinks and sunshine!
I have to comment on Aislinn’s INCREDIBLE dress from Miss Bush Bridal, one of my favourite bridal retailers, since she looked so absolutely stunning in it. I don’t think Ben stopped beaming with pride at his beautiful wife all day. The speeches were absolute crackers, with many a ‘oh no, he didn’t…’ faces pulled. What rounded it off as this a super special wedding was finding out Ben and Aislinn’s first dance was England, by The National, one of my favourite songs by one of my favourite ever bands. It was performed beautifully by Rollercoaster, and danced to even more beautifully by the couple themselves. I might have shed a *tiny* tear at this point and I left with a happy heart and a giant smile across my face. Once again, another incredible wedding, spoiled as ever by the caterers Jacaranda and the venue staff of course. Thank you Aislinn and Ben for choosing me, I absolutely loved every minute of your beautiful day, and I hope the photos will provide the best memories for you! Here are some of my favourites…<3 xxx
