Ooh I do love a Bartholomew Barn wedding and Julianne and Rich’s gorgeous day was no exception! I’ve been photographing weddings all over the south of England this year and it was lovely to be back in Sussex for this special day. I photographed a Richmond Park engagement/pre-wedding photo shoot for Julianne and Rich earlier in the summer and we had a lot of fun (including some great ‘flying’ shots!), so I have been really looking forward to shooting their wedding.
Julianne got ready with her bridesmaids in a little cottage in Kirdford. I say little and I mean it – the door frames were all lower than 5 foot so several of us (yup, me included) clonked our heads on them…luckily no harm done! Her bridesmaids wore really pretty dressing gowns from Cath Kidston (which was very helpful for my photos, thank you!) and all was impressively calm! It was then a quick 5 min drive down the road to the pretty Kirdford church, St John the Baptist (which I’d actually photographed another wedding at earlier in the year). After a lovely ceremony (including a very cute little flower girl who stood behind the bride and groom and danced enthusiastically during the hymns!) we went outside for a lot of confetti (yay, I love confetti photos – everyone looks happy when people throw confetti at them!).
The wedding reception was held at the beautiful Bartholomew Barn. I’ve worked there a lot and I love taking couple photographs in the pretty fields around the barn. Julianne and Rich had two huge yellow balloons as part of the wedding decor so I couldn’t resist replicating some of the engagement shoot photos with some ‘flying groom’ action shots! The party music was provided by Disco Shed which has to be the coolest dj rig I’ve ever seen!
Congrats on a perfect wedding day! xx
