“Thank you so much, you’ve really captured the day as we remembered it and it’s lovely to see some of the things we didn’t get a chance to see as we were getting swept along.”
Katie and Andrew’s Lains Barn wedding was such a wonderful day, filled to the brim with love and laughter. These are the only two ingredients needed in my opinion. Great weather helps of course, as does a stunning setting. Thankfully Katie and Andrew had both of these, too.
The day started with bridal preparations at Barton House, just up the road from Lains Barn. After several fun-filled hours it was over to Lains Barn for the ceremony. If there’s one thing that my 7 years as a documentary wedding photographer has taught me, it’s that weddings tend to throw up all sorts of curve balls. This wedding was no exception. Minutes after arriving at the Barn I somehow managed to get a wasp caught between my finger and camera. The wasp obviously panicked and proceeded to stick his stinger deep into my finger; a first for me at a wedding. A quick flick of the wasp got rid of the cheeky chap but his stinger remained. With only minutes to go until Katie arrived to walk down the aisle I had no choice but to wait until after the ceremony to dig the stinger out.
The rest of the day went without a hitch and after some games in the garden it was back into the the barn for dinner, speeches and some absolutely brilliant dancing! These guys LOVE to dance. I was even treated to a special performance of Michael Jackson’s Thriller; another first for me at a wedding.
Katie and Andrew, your Lains Barn wedding was 100% totally incredible – thank you so much for letting me capture the day for you! For everyone else, here are some highlights from their day.
