This was my first wedding shot at the amazing wedding venue that is the boutique hideaway of Lower Barns. Nestled just inland from the Cornish coast between Pentewan and Meva, it is an eclectic mix of styles that will have you finding new gems of art and incredible detail at every twist and turn. Owners Mike and Janie have worked incredibly hard to create a unique location and venue for a very individual and intimate day.
Emma and Simon asked me to capture their day ages ago, we didn't get the chance to meet first hand prior to their big day but after a call to check details, I knew we would be a good match. They, their family and their friends were so welcoming, as were hosts, Mike and Janie and it really does make a difference on the day.
I arrived in good time to capture a relaxed start to the days events and took shots of details like Emma's shoes and her pearls, which were her grandmothers and so of great importance to her. The boys we dutifully filling the very orange SMEG's with beer and bubbly, and stunning flowers were prepped and pinned.
Guests took their places in comfy and equally chilled style, in deck chairs with shade provided by a stunning canopy that Mike had shipped in recently to add versatility to the already amazing spaces.
Big smiles and a few tears appeared as Emma was led by her father to the awaiting Simon at the 'WedShed', unique among venues I have photographed.
After a wonderful ceremony, we headed off to Caerhays beach for a short break and a few very relaxed few shots to give Emma and Simon a bit of time together and then headed back to Lower Barns for a chilled afternoon of lawn games, giant bubble blowing and my personal favourite, a spot of space hopping!
A had a truly lovely day, thanks to Emma, Simon and all their family and friends for letting me be part of it and to Mike and Janie and their staff too!
