Gloucester Barn Wedding

I knew this wedding was coming. Ever since 2008 when I did my degree in Music, me and Josh were in the same groups, mixing with the same people. I saw the relationship between him and Jess bloom throughout the coming few years. They were both part of the central wedding troupe at a wedding I photographed three years prior too. At that wedding they vowed to hire me for their own day, whenever that may be. That time was finally upon us, in the summer of 2018. At one of my favourite Gloucester Barn Wedding venues Cripps Barn, the day was beautiful from start to finish. There’s something so special about being trusted to shoot your friends wedding, you’re one of the inside team and have a history and connection with so many guests.

Everyone could relax and be themselves, which makes for amazing images throughout the day. Our couples session was so fun, able to spend so much quality time with the couple getting those intimate shots which are so important. The weather held out day, with a beaming sun during the ceremony and group shots, until it finally became overcast for the couples shoot.
