Lapstone Barn Wedding Photographer

What a great day I had shooting Courtney and Jack's wonderful wedding at the stunning Lapstone Barn in September. Lapstone Barn is a brand new, exclusive use venue set in the stunning Cotswold countryside. The 18th Century Cotswold stone barn was the perfect venue for our fun-loving couple to share their special day with family and friends. 

Courtney and Jack booked me because they loved my unobtrusive, documentary style wedding coverage - and this worked so well for them at the Lapstone Barn as I was able to work discreetly capturing Courtney's bridal prep all the way through to the spectacular first dance and partying into the wee small hours. 

This was truly a stylish affair with Jack and the groomsmen arriving in limited edition Bentleys. Courtney looked absolutely spectacular as she walked down the aisle with her father. The barn was dressed to impress also, with stunning floral displays and styling courtesy of the team at Styletopia.

It was tough narrowing down a selection of favourites to include in the blog, but hopefully the images below will give you a great feel for the wonderful day Courtney and Jack enjoyed.

It was a a scorcher of a day back in the summer when I had the pleasure of revisiting the marvellous Dodmoor House for Victoria and Scott's beautifully intimate wedding. I was commissioned by the couple the year before as they loved my relaxed and unobtrusive approach to photographing a wedding and also because I'm a regular visitor to Dodmoor House. It was a beautiful day at the Northamptonshire venue and a day filled with emotion, fun and lots of laughter. 

I like to arrive early to make sure I capture the bridal preparations and it was great to see how Vic and her bridesmaids were so relaxed and enjoying the occasion. As Dodmoor House is an exclusive wedding venue it's great to be able to spend time with the both the bride and the groom ahead of the wedding. Scott arrived an hour or so before the ceremony which was held in the courtyard barn. Drinks were served in the gardens before guests made their way to the wedding breakfast in the Catesby Barn. Emotional speeches followed with a wonderful sparkler procession ahead of the cutting of the cake and first dance. It was such a glorious day, many of the couples guests were able to stay outside into the wee small hours enjoying a catch up and a refreshing drink. 

So then here are a few of my favourite images from Vic and Scott's wonderful day at Dodmoor House.

 

Maybe you are looking for a Dodmoor House wedding Photographer yourself ? I shoot in a documentary wedding photography style that really captures the essence of your special day.

It's always a pleasure to work at Dodmoor House, such a great team and a beautiful venue whatever the season. Alice and Aaron were married here at the beginning of December and we were blessed with a gorgeous, crisp (if a little chilly) day. If you are considering a barn wedding with exclusive use and amazing levels of customer service I would really suggest you contact Dodmoor House and chat through your plans. As a preferred wedding photographer at the venue I'm due to photograph quite a few weddings here in the coming months, really looking forward to it ! Here's a selection of images that document this lovely wedding day. Enjoy

Catherine and George celebrated their wedding at the 12th Century church of St Andrews in Harlestone before departing with family and friends for a reception at the wonderfully intimate, Dodmoor House. Despite the weather not playing ball initially rain did not stop play and guests were able to enjoy the lovely grounds before and after the wedding breakfast. The happy couple were looking for a more documentary approach to their wedding photography, with little in the way of formality. This suited my style perfectly and I was able to move amongst the guests capturing proceedings without the photography breaking the natural flow of the day. As a recommended supplier at Dodmoor House it was a pleasure to return and capture Catherine and George's big day, here's just a small selection of images for you to look over. If you are considering a wedding photographer with a more natural, unobtrusive style for your wedding at Dodmoor House then please feel free to contact me.
