Every love story is beautiful, but ours is my favourite!
We were over the moon when Sophie and Matt commissioned us to be their Cripps Barn Wedding Photographers! We totally agree with one of our couples who said that this 18th century Cotswolds stone barn sells itself – It’s absolutely incredible! Cripps Barn is a great place for anyone wanting a relaxed, quirky and fun wedding – a peaceful setting with fields, trees and most importantly uncountable photo opportunities. The venue is definitely one of the most wonderful places in Gloucestershire to hold your wedding day. It is a unique barn with stunning facilities, unspoiled views and room for up to 200 guests!
As with most of our couples Sophie and Matt booked us almost two years in advance. We met at one of the West Midlands wedding fayres and we were told by our friend Sasha Brown (Sophie’s make-up artist) that this Cripps Barn wedding will definitely be one to remember! She couldn’t be more right :)
The morning arrived and we split up to take photographs of the bride and grooms wedding preparations. Sophie had chosen to get ready for the day in a beautiful quirky cottage near the venue with all her bridesmaids, whilst Matt was with his groomsmen getting ready at the Cripps Barn.
The couple had decided to host both their ceremony and reception at the venue. When the guests had all assembled in the magnificent woodland glade, Sophie made her way down the aisle for the wedding ceremony, accompanied by music she looked stunning in a full-length dress. Afterwards, the wedding party, friends and guests made their way back to the barn for the drinks reception, whilst we stole the newlyweds away for a few snapshots in the stunning breathtaking backdrop of the Cotswolds. Cripps Barn was magnificent with so many hand made wedding decorations and favours, which was where the wedding breakfast was held and speeches given. Soon it was time for the first dance with Sophie and Matt taking to the floor closely followed by the rest of the party, what a fantastic time was had by all!
Sophie and Matt, thank you for choosing us to be your Cripps Barn wedding photographers. What a fabulous, full of fun and laughter wedding guys, we wish you all the best in your future life together. As usual the complete gallery of wedding photography is available to view for friends and family via online private gallery. We hope you enjoy the below set of images!
