Kate & Jon at The Old Greens Barn, Newdigate.

Hi guys!

In April I shot at another new venue for me….. The Old Green’s Barn in Newdigate, Surrey. A beautiful, rustic barn venue, with the ability to put your own stamp on the whole event. Which this wedding party did in stunning abundance!

I worked a lot with the Bride’s mother and saw it all coming together as we communicated over the year leading up to the wedding. Kate, the bride, was getting ready at a barn conversion 20 minutes away in Westcott, Dorking, and the ceremony was taking place at the village church back in Newdigate.

It was mid-April. Over the years in mid-April we’ve seen dark skies, blue skies, hail, rain, baking heat and gale force winds. You never know what you’re truly going to get in April. Sadly this time, I drove to the Bridal Prep in bucketing rain. It wouldn’t stop. You’ll see the umbrellas in the photos below as the bridesmaids arrived. However, as always, I walked through the door to big smiles, excitement, a relaxed atmosphere and not a care for the weather in sight! After all, someone was getting married, and rain will never dampen a spirt on a wedding day.

Space was limited, especially with 10+ family and friends in the same room (!) but we managed to get some lovely energetic shots of the preparations.

After a glass of fizz, some excited tears, confusion as to how to fix a buttonhole, and a couple of cans of hairspray, I headed off to the church to meet with Jon, the groom, and arriving guests.

The ceremony went without a hitch, and their dog even made an appearance at the very end! I LOVE dogs!

The rain managed to hold, but the wind didn’t, which chilled the air considerably. This, and the fact that the ground was very wet, meant that we were restricted on the amount of time we could spend outside photographing back at the barn. But we still managed to get some lovely natural shots before everyone headed back inside for canapés, more fizz, and eventually the wedding breakfast.

The ‘pudding table’ was a real sight to behold and it wasn’t long before guests were tucking in. Speeches were spoken, tears were shed, laughter was heard, drinks were drunk, music was played and bodies danced until the darkness arrived.

I headed off after some time photographing the atmosphere on the dance floor (Kate & Jon had chosen a rock band to see the night though) which was amazing!

Fun was had by absolutely everyone and i’m pretty sure, despite the weather, this will have been a day to truly remember.
