Surrey Wedding Photography – Amy & James’ Gate Street Barn wedding

Gate Street Barn wedding photography – Amy and James got married at the beautiful Surrey wedding barn Gate Street Barn at the start of August.  I photographed my very first wedding at Gate Street Barn way back in 2009 so I’ve always had a soft spot for it.  I’ve photographed so many weddings there over the years that it almost feels like coming home!  The staff are brilliant (lovely to see Lisa again…and Jane off duty in her cycling kit!) and always make sure the wedding runs like clockwork.  I knew from my brief chats with Amy and James that they were lovely and relaxed, so I was really looking forward to this big day.

I walked in to the (newly converted) stable flat where Amy and her girls were getting ready, and felt immediately at home.  Partly because most of us were called Sarah!  There was a lot of laughter (and quite a lot of pimms) and it was a nice chilled atmosphere.  Amy was remarkably relaxed.  I love it when the bride gets ready at the wedding venue as it means I can pop over to see the groom as he waits nervously for his guests.  James was doing well, and was happy to have some photographs with his ushers, who were particularly keen to show off their matching smart brown shoes.  Why leave all the cool wedding details to the girls?!

Amy and James wisely chose Kalm Kitchen for their caterers.  They are my favourite caterers because a) everyone who works for them is lovely b) the food is incredible and c) it looks like works of art – check out the photographs of their canapes!  Once again, the food was superlative – I was sitting near the kitchen to have my meal and I watched a queue of people knock on the door to give their compliments to the chef.  The main course was ‘carve at the table’ pork belly (plus yorkshire puddings – yum!).  Seeing the guests who’d been selected as the carvers wearing their chefs hats and aprons and entering the barn with the food was great for photo opps…and provoked a lot of whooping from the guests!

The evening brought marshmallows toasted over a fire pit, followed by a lot of dancing.  The whole day was wonderful – thank you for including me Amy and James, and congratulations again on your perfect wedding. Surrey wedding photographer_0143
