I’ve said before how much I enjoy Weddings. It’s a day with a group of people who have come together to celebrate the joining of two people, I’m doing what I love to do and getting paid for it. Another nice thing is to work in a completely new venue.
Last November we went on holiday to Northern Cyprus and met some really nice people. They watched me editing my images and we got to chatting. The upshot is that one of the couple’s daughter was getting married and I have been very privileged to have been selected to shoot their wedding in May.
The Wedding is to be held in a beautiful converted Barn in Shustoke, Warwickshire. Shustoke, according to Wikipedia is an ancient village and existed before the Doomsday Book was created. Having never seen the Barn I took a drive down to Shustoke to have a look round.
I was met by an extremely friendly member of the team who gave me a quick tour round then left me to my own devices to explore a little. I had my trusty Leica Q so I took some images that will help me prepare for the day and will be added to the images I keep of Wedding Venues.
The barn itself had series of diamonds constructed by taking half bricks out of the wall. The Bricks themselves had glass on the inside to keep the feature in and out as well as providing unusual lighting inside. I have shot in a few converted barns and some of them can be really dark inside but the conversion of this barn with it’s high ornate door ways has produced a really light and airy environment which will be perfect for Elizabeth and James’ Wedding in May.
