An Upcote Barn Wedding.
This was a hot one, and super stunning. It was the first time I’ve photographed an Upcote Barn wedding in the Cotswolds. Some venues just have the secret sauce, this is one of those places. I mean, there’s a secret garden!! Who has one of those? Who has one that everyone knows about? Hardly anyone, it wouldn’t be a secret would it!
Shana and Jake, booked me over a year ago. We even had a pre wedding shoot in Bristol so we got to spend a bit of time together before the day. I have to admit I was looking forward to spending the day with these two and their friends and families. The day started very hot, and it stayed that way all day long. You know when you are just running all over the place and you’re consuming huge amounts of water to try and stay hydrated, it was like that for me from about 1030am. It was a complete beauty though, and well worth the sweat.
Shana and Jake wanted a few minutes for a couples shoot in the grounds. I’m so glad they did because there’s nothing but stunning backdrops. I’m not big on all the staged and posed stuff, so I just ask the couple to have a bit of time together, no need to do any fancy moves or anything like that, just take some time away from the hustle and bustle of the wedding day. The shots were stunning.
Anyway, here’s some images form this lovely Upcote Barn wedding. Really looking forward to coming back!
