As we are creeping up to Christmas and I’m photographing lots of beautiful wintery weddings, it’s reminding my of Leanne and Tom’s wedding day last November.
It feels impossible that as I’m writing this Leanne and Tom have celebrated their first anniversary (how quickly has this year gone!?).
Not only did the bride have the most incredible first name (!), but they lived right around the corner from my home, over a cuppa, they told me all about their wedding plans.
Leanne and Tom wanted a laid back, relaxed day of celebrating with their family and friends and their wedding certainly exceeded expectations.
Tucked away in Whitchurch, Clock Barn is such a breathtaking venue. I was so excited to be back shooting there, as the last wedding I photographed at Clock Barn I was 38 weeks pregnant (and counting!), so a venue I will always remember.
Bridal Prep is one of my favourite times to photograph on a wedding day and I was spoilt for choice with so much of the venue to use for those important detail shots.
It was soon time for the ceremony which was held in the Stable Room, which was so perfect for their intimate ceremony. In front of the beautiful fireplace, Leanne and Tom made their vows and promises to cheers from family and friends.
Despite the November wedding, we were able to sneak outside and make the most of the grounds at Clock Barn – I knew how important it was to capture those important couple shots in a natural, keeping poses to a minimum for this chilled couple.
Onto the afternoon celebrations, I was amazed by the decor. Tom’s Mum took on the task of creating most of the decorations making the overall vibe so unique.
Tom and Leanne obviously had their guests at the forefront of their minds when planning their wedding as they thought of everything – down to the games in the centre of each table which acted as entertainment and an icebreaker for guests that hadn’t previously met (a tip I’m going to steal for my own wedding!).
Here’s just a little look back to this gorgeous November, Clock Barn wedding which I think proves that Winter Weddings ROCK.
