A lovely Cotswold barn Wedding near Bibury, Gloucestershire.
It was August 2016 when Samantha and I were the wedding photographers for Lizzie and Sean's wonderful wedding at the rustic setting of Cripps Stone Barn. Based on a quiet road of the main A40 between Oxford and Cheltenham, Cripps Stone Barn is a gorgeous venue for a wedding, with the rolling Cotwolds hills all around. It's also another venue where the wedding and the guests can completely take over the venue, without other events taking place at the same time. This of course helps with out our documentary wedding photography style, in that we know everyone we photograph is at the wedding!
We first met Lizzie and Sean at a wedding fair at another wedding venue earlier that year. It was that time of the day when all the exhibitors were looking to pack away their stands, but we were still "open of business" when Lizzie and Sean came for a chat. They loved our approach and the idea of two photographers at their wedding, so we were delighted to get home to a message on our phone from them looking to book us! On their wedding day, we started in our usual way; Sam was with Lizzie and the girls getting ready at home, whilst I met up with Sean and his guys at a local hotel. The venue was pleasure to photograph at; although the light inside was challenging (another grey August day!) our Fuji cameras coped well as usual. Lizzie and Sean's young son melted everyone's hearts in his little suit, and of course Lizzie looked absolutely stunning. We throughly enjoyed photographing their wedding all the way through to well past their first dance, and the partying that then ensued.
