Katie & Andrew ~ A Spring Wedding at Maidens Barn, High Easter, Essex

I’ve know Katie for a while now, and after seeing them both as guests at another wedding last Summer I was looking forward to seeing these guys again for their special day! This was the first time I would be shooting at Maidens Barn, and it was so lovely to be heading back to the tiny village I grew up in as a little girl. {{cough}} Yes I did drive past my old house and marvel at all the changes…I just couldn’t resist! 😉
Maidens Barn literally is in the middle of nowhere, but what a beautiful way to escape all the hustle and bustle and just enjoy your wedding day without any stress or noise around! Barn weddings are beautiful, and this barn was perfect for my style of photography with its white walls, open beams, natural light & rustic charm. I like to consider myself a country bumpkin with a flair for adventure and discovering natural beauty within!
I found Katie & her girls getting ready in their room; bubbly flowing, hair & make-up in full swing and music playing as the excitement of the day ahead got closer and closer.
I escaped with the dress and Katie’s personal items for some detailed shots of her bits & pieces before she got dressed and put all her extras on too. Katie smiled as she recalled her bouquet was actually put together by her very talented husband-to-be…what a lovely addition to remember as she walked down the aisle to meet Andrew at the end of the alter.
The couple wed in the beautiful airy and bright barn where Katie bit back tears as she walked down arm in arm with her Dad.
A beautiful ceremony complete with readings from family members, and watched on by their nearest and dearest. These guys then walked out to everyone blowing bubbles (instead of the usual confetti, although this is getting more and more popular now!)
Congratulations were passed around by everyone and the drinks and laughter started flowing from hereon out. The couple enjoyed a delicate tea-party Wedding Breakfast, some hilarious and heart-felt speeches by Katies Dad, the Best Man and Andrew before hitting the dance floor and welcoming more guests for the evening entertainment and celebrations!
Wishing these guys a lifetime of love, laughter and romance, you were awesome!!
