The Barn at Bury Court is one of my favourite Surrey venues…I’ve been a bridesmaid there, then a bride and now I return regularly as a wedding photographer! Earlier in the year I photographed a lovely Bury Court spring wedding (making good use of a pretty field of rapeseed handily located right next to the barn) and it was great to be back to see the splendid garden in a different season. Jacaranda do the catering for all the weddings and so I always know the food is going to be top notch!
This was a special wedding for me to photograph as I used to go to school with Pippy the bride (and her twin sister…me and my twin sister were good buddies with our fellow twins!), and I photographed the wedding of one of her beautiful sisters (of which she has three!) three years ago. It’s always a good sign when I get to photographs siblings of previous brides (this is the third wedding of 2014 where the bride was a sibling of a previous wedding client!). Pippy is a wonderful person whose smile genuinely makes it feel like the sun has come out, so I knew it was going to be a joy to photograph her special day.
Pippy and Matt tied the knot in St Mary’s church in Bentley in a wonderful ceremony which included a great reading about a penguin…I think the first time I’ve heard penguins mentioned at a wedding. They vicar was particularly warm and the ceremony was perfect. After the ceremony Pippy and Matt sped off in their (well, theirs for the day) Aston Martin whilst their guests skipped off across the field to Bury Court Barn. Jacaranda were waiting with cocktails in tea cups and real lemonade with stripy straws, which went down very well. The Barn was set up with long tables (which I haven’t seen a this venue before) which looked stunning and there were tears aplenty during the heartfelt speeches. The dancing was kicked off in excellent style with an impressive first dance from the (very) happy couple.
It was a day full of love and laughter – what more could you want from your wedding day? Pippy and Matt – congratulations once again.
Love Sarah xx
