BLACKTHORPE BARN SUFFOLK WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
This was one of the happiest, most relaxed weddings I’ve ever had the pleasure of shooting. No stress, just laughter all day. James is one of my friends’ brother, so for that reason alone, the desperation to get everything right down to the last tiny detail of their wedding photography that I always feel was maximised! I also had giant nerves for the family and for the speech I knew my friend had to do too!
Family and friends were most important to Becca & James at their wedding. They had an unplugged ceremony, filled with lots of tears, in a room filled with fairy lights. It rained and poured for so long, but the couple and their guests took it in their stride and one of my favourite images is Becca laughing in the rain after we attempted (and failed) to beat the rain (above!) and quickly get their family shots… We improvised instead with indoor family portraits, which quite honestly, I’m so glad it rained as they really are beautiful and had it been sunny, they never would have occurred as they did. After dinner, we escaped for their couples portraits. Blackthorpe Barn has so many different spots surrounding the barn that there were so many places to shoot.
There were so many cool details at this wedding; from the barrell that their brother in law had renovated for everyone to sign instead of a guest book, the whisky shots for everyone that signed said barrell and the cute mice (not real mice, see the photos..) adorning their cheese cake in the evening. They had a singer and a DJ, and quite frankly I’ve never seen an entire wedding party get up and dance so quickly. They were awesome fun.
