Rebecca & Thomas’s wedding was held at a wedding venue that was new to me, Yarlington Barn just south of Bristol. Couples planning their wedding really are spoilt for choice in and around Bristol for venues to hold their wedding. There must be double the number of wedding venues compared to when I started wedding photography in Bristol 18 years ago. This is especially true when it comes to barn conversion.
I had done my research before the wedding so I knew what to expect once I arrived at the barn for Rebecca & Thomas’s wedding. The grounds are beautiful with the lakes looking spectacular in the summers sun. As is often the case I started with the getting ready photographs before heading off to the barn. On arrival, I was quickly into taking photographs of Thomas and his brother. Then as the guests arrived I was able to capture the excitement of the day building.
Rebecca & Thomas’s wedding
Rebecca arrived in a beautiful Rolls Royce and was accompanied down the aisle by her mum. After the wedding ceremony, we mad our way out into the glorious sunshine to champagne and canopies. Soon I was taking all the group photographs the Bride and groom had requested of their friends and family.
The Bride and Groom
After the group shots, I took Rebecca and Thomas around the lakes for some photographs. Yarlington offers lots of scope for this and we captured some beautiful wedding memories. I loved the yellow flowers around the lake which we used to great effect. The Orchard was also a great place to take the happy couple.
Sunset and fireworks
With the beautiful sunny day, I knew we would be in for a beautiful sunset. The only small problem was it was setting the far side of the wedding venue. I asked the Bride and groom trust me and led them into the car park. As you can see their trust was well placed. The day ended in style with some fantastic fireworks which were a complete surprise for Thomas the groom. A great wedding for my first visit to this wonderful wedding venue. Let’s hope I’m back again soon.
