We’ve seen a really great range of venues so far this year, visiting old favourites and places entirely new to us. In July we photographed a wedding a Warwickshire venue which has become very popular in just a couple of years. Sam and Ian had chosen Shustoke Farm Barns in Warwickshire.
Although both the wedding ceremony and reception were held at Shustoke, the venue has no ‘getting ready’ facilities so Sam and Ian both booked rooms at The Belfry hotel nearby and this where we started the coverage of their big day.
The interior of Shustoke Barns are really beautiful with several spots where the light works really nicely – especially for the wedding ceremony and the speeches. And although the barn setting really doesn’t need much in the way of decoration, Sam and Ian’s theme of Marvel Comic characters contrasted really well with the rustic surroundings.
Despite the inclement weather, Sam and Ian refused let the rain spoil their day. Although the wet conditions never really cleared up, we did get a slight respite from the drizzle in the early evening in time for their main photo session. An absolute joy to work with, they just got on with enjoying their time away from the crowd while we made the most of the surroundings.
A huge thank-you to Sam and Ian – just a smashing couple who are lots of fun to be around. Hope you enjoy the photos..
