Emma and Jak / The Barn at Berkeley Wedding
Sometimes it’s hard to sum up in words how much fun a wedding day is…that is definitely the case for Emma & Jak’s The Barn at Berkeley wedding! Such a lovely wedding with lovely people.
So I started the day with Emma and all the girls at her house in Berkeley. It was a really fun morning and it was lovely to see everyone having a giggle! My absolute favourite photograph is the reaction of Emma’s parents and bridesmaids when they saw her walking down the stairs in her dress for the first time. This was a totally natural reaction, I didn’t stage it at all!
From here it was a short walk to the church on this sunny day to the beautiful St Mary’s Church, where the guests were already arriving. It was a really emotional, personal ceremony filled with more laughter, and I absolutely loved photographing this picturesque church! After leaving the ceremony Emma & Jak were met with an enthusiastic confetti line, before heading off in a vintage car just down the road to the Barn at Berkeley.
The venue was all set up when we arrived and it looked absolutely stunning with all the fairy lights and vintage decorations. I loved the gin theme they went for – every table was a different brand of gin, and the table favours were home brewed redcurrent gin. Genius! The drinks reception was very civilised, set to acoustic guitar music and accompanied by Pimm’s and canapés in the sun. Perfect summer afternoon!
My favourite party of the day was after the wedding breakfast, when all the guests were allowed in the play barn next door to the venue. I’ve never seen so many grown adults enjoying slides and ball pits. It was so much fun! I was laughing so much just watching everyone.
The evening was filled with loads of dancing to the amazing The Distractions Band, and pizza courtesy of the Pizza Monkeys. I didn’t leave before taking a photograph of Emma and Jak with the fairy lights outside which are some of my favourite shots of the day!
Overall, just the perfect, fun, relaxed wedding in the sun!
