As I package up Claire and Marc’s album for delivery, it felt like just the right time to post the full story of their glorious July wedding at The Old Kent Barn (The Old Kent Barn). As I look through the images, I can feel the warmth of the day, reflected in their smiles, the laughter and the joy. Here’s the story of Claire and Marc’s day …
The barns looked absolutely amazing in the strong sunshine and the cool and beautifully decorated wedding breakfast barn looked very welcoming indeed!
The bridal preparation room has been newly introduced and Claire was one of the first brides to take advantage of the air conditioning which was very welcome indeed! Leopard rules, baby!
Although it looks as though Claire and Marc were getting ready in the same room, Marc was over in the old barn, finishing his preparations whilst Claire and her mum were in the main barn.
The tuk tuk ferries all brides across from one barn to the other, and was filled was laughter and a little bit of nerves …
But any nerves were quickly dispelled by mum and dad!
Their ceremony took place in the gazebo … to the sounds of bleating lambs in the background – it was also very windy on their day, although you wouldn’t really see it from these images as Claire looked composed and happy throughout!
The grounds at the barns are beautiful and were full of flowers and gorgeous places to shoot the happy couple.
Marc’s dad had made their wishing well … so many personal touches from friends and family.
The children were well entertained with fishing games and lots of lots of sweets!
We had time to pop back out into the gardens after the cutting of the cake and the slowing setting sun created the opportunity for some beautiful back lit images.
Claire and Marc were quickly joined during their first dance by their little son who delighted in being part of the whole day!
Such a handsome couple, a gorgeous venue and the most amazing weather. I hope that you both enjoy looking through your album for many years to come and sharing with family and friends when they come to visit. Much love xx
