Ben & Sally’s Wedding at The River Barn

This lovely bride and groom booked with me in early 2019, throw a world wide pandemic, a baby and a venue burning down these newly weds finally got the day they wanted, It was perfect to say the least. Once the previous venue burnt down, I actually helped them find this venue and I am so pleased I did, I now class this crazy pair as my friends and the River Barn is absolutely perfect – a brilliant venue to get married. The Tudor Manor House, where the couple and bridesmaids and groomsmen all got ready was actually built in 1536. With seven bedrooms and six luxurious cabins – the River Barn can also accommodate your nearest and dearest.

The day started with Sally in the Tudor Manor House before I joined the groom and his groomsmen getting ready. I knew straight away today was going to be a great day and I was not disappointed.

After everyone was ready, Sally and her bridesmaids headed over to the barn. Sally walked half way down the aisle before her lovely dad joined her and walked the final steps to her waiting groom. The ceremony was brilliant, full of laughter and a couple of mishaps along the way which had everyone laughing.

A short time later it was time for confetti and drinks. We were treated to a fantastic sunny day – warm enough for everyone to be outside for confetti and some drinks.

River Barn Wedding Photography

The River Barn is a great space for your wedding and perfect for wedding photography. Before the wedding breakfast I photographed a few groups and 5 minutes of couples portraits before heading in for the wedding breakfast which was beautifully provided by the Striped Pig.  I love couples portraits at The River Barn- it is the perfect backdrop. This was my first time photographing here since their refurbishment and I have to say it is such a fantastic improvement.

Fantastic party at River Barn

Well, what can I say about todays wedding party. It was incredible – everyone had a great time. With the worm, great dancing, shots and the alcohol was flowing – I even witnessed a brand new way of serving evening food. I imagine there was some sore heads and bodies the day after this incredible wedding – but it was truly worth it. The River Barn is an incredible wedding venue and I can’t wait to return.
