I’m so happy to show you a snapshot of this GORGEOUS wedding of Alison & Matt’s at Gate Street Barn in Guildford. I won’t mention the fact that it rained solidly all day, and I mean allllll day, because I doubt anyone else really noticed, the day was so lovely and heartfelt. Gate Street Barn has recently been extended with big glass extra rooms, which flooded the areas with light and made my job much easier (thank you very much GSB!)
The wedding party were brill enough to brave the outdoors with me and posed for photos under brollies and the garden had some sheltered parts which made for some lovely couples’ photos. The evening was topped off with sparklers in the back garden before guests were treated to a ceilidh which, as usual, was hilarious. Cracking wedding guys, thank you so much for having Dan & I along!

Venues I regularly shoot at can sometimes feel a little bit like my babies, so I know you’re not supposed to have favourites…but I kinda do a little bit with Ashley Wood Farm! This venue is O so flippin’ gorgeous, with it’s duck egg blue barn doors and sand coloured walls, plus I LOVE the fact you can opt to get married outside in the garden if you choose to. Not only that but it has the loveliest little cottage on site to get ready in in the morning and to stay in the night of the wedding… so I may even be so daring to say it’s pretty much PERFECT.
So when Emily & Jim asked me to be the photographer for their September wedding at Ashley Wood Farm, you can imagine I was delighted! Everything about their wedding was absolutely-knock your socks off-gorgeous, and the barn was styled impeccably. All the tables were given brightly coloured flowers in cute jars, with gold and hessian touches and multi-coloured ribbons hanging from the ceiling. They even had botanical information cards up-cycled as bunting, O my!
After a week of threatened rain, we were lucky and Emily and Jim were able to wed outside in the garden exactly as they had wanted to. Afterwards, they were met with a shower of confetti instead of rain, before guests mingled, chatted and enjoyed the canapes.
Before the meal we wondered around the grounds capturing their couple shots, before the evening party kicked off with an awesome Ceilidh band which got almost everyone up on their feet.
I LOVED this wedding, thank you so much for having Dan and I along; some of these photos are his <3
