After the Wedding

Photographing the actual wedding day is only a small part of all the work that goes into delivering your final pictures. So while you are enjoying your honeymoon I will be downloading, backing up, sorting, selecting, colour correcting, cropping, sharpening and photoshopping away, so 3-4 weeks after the wedding you will recieve your USB drive of fully edited photos. Once you have recieved your photos I will also open up the full online gallery so your friends and family can have a look at all of your photos, from wherever they are, and they can order prints aswell.

If you have decided to order an album have a read of the Wedding Album Guide for the Storybook Album or Fine Art Album for instructions on choosing your images and your options for cover styles. You can choose to order an album anytime after the wedding so even if you decided not to order at the time of booking you can add one on. Don’t forget that Parent books are available too.

Blogs and Pin-spiration

Eeek I am addicted to Pinterest and if you are planning your wedding I’m sure you may be too. If you want to share your wedding inspiration boards with me, that would be awesome, I love a good nosy at what you have planned. I can also recommend some great wedding blogs for advice and ideas. If you would like to see your wedding featured on a blog or in a magazine let me know and I can help to submit.

Barn Wedding Venues: Rustic, Countryside Weddings

Rustic Weddings in Hampshire Countryside

Barn wedding venues are the quintessential choice for rustic, country style weddings. A wedding in a Barn is perfect for a relaxed wedding which you can stamp your personality to. We have lots of stunning Barn wedding venues in the Hampshire and West Sussex area, set in pretty villages and amongst cornfields and downland.

I’ve photographed lots of lovely Barn weddings in the South, and wanted to share a few photos, tips and ideas if you are considering getting married in a Barn. You might think a barn seems a little rough and simple for a wedding, but most Barn wedding venues are beautiful buildings with high beamed ceilings, lit with fairy lights and chandeliers, and set in beautiful gardens looking out on fields and woodlands. The Tithe Barn in Petersfield has a high vaulted ceiling to rival most churches, while the gardens at Bury Court Barns are charmingly landscaped like any Country manor. I love photographing barn weddings, when you can have relaxed photos in a golden cornfield, or looking out across hills and pastures. 

The uncomplicated decor of a wedding barn allows you to stamp your own style on your wedding, and barn wedding venues can be be gorgeously decorated with flowers, bunting, pom poms, lights, garlands and personal touches. Unlike a hotel, you will not have to share your venue with other guests, and you can often choose your own caterers or menus so you really have the wedding how you want, whether it be a relaxed hog roast or elegant 7 course dinner.

Most Barn wedding venues are licensed for civil ceremonies, so you can get married and hold your wedding reception all in one easy place with no bother moving guests from one place to other. Of course Wedding Barns are also perfect for wedding receptions if you are getting married in a pretty country church nearby. Some venues, such as Upwaltham Barns, Southend Barns and Rivervale Barns have separate buildings for your ceremony and reception, and many even have break out areas such as bars, quiet rooms and covered courtyards ideal for grandparents to escape the music, or kids to play. Some venues even have accommodation on site, with cosy cottages or bed and breakfast rooms for Bridal preparations and the first night of your honeymoon. Barn weddings allow you to have an outdoorsy wedding with the confidence you have a warm, dry and atmospheric retreat from the elements, so they are suitable for weddings in Spring, Autumn and Winter, as well as for Summer weddings.

If you are considering a Barn wedding here are some local venue’s you may want to look into.
