Hannah and Tom held their wedding ceremony & reception at the amazing Barn at Bury Court in Bentley, Surrey. I haven’t photographed at this venue before but heard a lot of praise from my wedding photography friends so I was more than excited to finally work at what was promised to be an incredible setting. And it only exceeded my expectations. Quirky architecture, the mix of modern and old, rustic and contemporary, stunning gardens, textures, decor details – these are only a few attributes of this place.
My second shooter, Voyteck, arrived to capture the groom getting ready with his family and friends whilst I stayed with Hannah at her parents house where together with her parents and bridesmaids she prepared for the ceremony. The girls were then driven to the Barn by a mighty Rolls Royce.
After the ceremony the wedding guests spread into the gardens accompanied by the string quartet. The vintage ice cream cart where the bride and groom were serving homemade ice cream was the perfect addition to this English wedding movie-like scene. I remember some rain showers appearing in the afternoon and even an odd umbrella image taken but nothing could disturb the atmosphere of this beautiful summer gathering. The style of this wedding in conjunction with the setting was everything a wedding photographer could wish for. Delicate, modern elegance, rustic and romantic, the reception room looked absolutely incredible! Barn at Bury Court is definitely one of the most beautiful, quirky, atmospheric venues I have ever had the pleasure to shoot at. The staff were more than accommodating and everything was organised to perfection, I was told the bride kept her eye on every detail and everything came together beautifully. Thomas’s smile was brightening the room, Hannah’s beauty dazzled, it was an easy day in wedding photographer’s life! ;)
Below a selection of my favourite captures, so excited to be sharing it! xx
