Great Bower Barn

"We can't thank you enough for the massive part you played in our day, from how amazing you were while us girls were getting ready right through to the party. You put everyone at ease and we had so many amazing comments about you from our guests. You can tell how comfortable everyone felt from the wonderfully relaxed and natural shots you got! Never did we feel like we were posing or unnatural and that is exactly what we wanted from our day. We wouldn't have had anyone else shoot our day, and we can't say it enough but thank you, thank you, thank you!!!"

There are two overwhelming truths from this wedding; a DIY wedding is amazing fun, and a Great Bower Barn wedding is the perfect spot to host it! Now that you know those two things, let me introduce you to the third, and most important element to this epic wedding day, Leanne & Sam. I’ve known this brilliant pair for a few years now, back when I used to shoot some photos for the musical theatre production they are both part of. I don’t think I’ve ever seen either of them without a smile on their face. There is nothing better than spending some time with people who just love and embrace life to its fullest. And MAN ALIVE these two do that!

Great Bower Barn Wedding

Leanne & Sam created a Great Bower Barn wedding to rival any other, of that I’m certain. I’ve been a part of a DIY wedding or two in my career, but this one smashed it out the park! They put so much effort into creating a brilliant experience for their friends and family, and they made everything you see in these photos!! All the games, all the decorations, everything!!

Also, things you want on your tick-list for a super-fun and emotional wedding day: Groom surprising his Bride with a song, accompanied by members of the congregation, during the ceremony. Tick! A talent show sing-along as part of the reception. Tick! Space hopper racing AND a high jump contest in the evening. Tick! And for a finale, a Bride & Groom DJ battle. TICK! Seriously, I don’t think they could have packed anything else into the day!

DIY Wedding

So, if you’re planning a Great Bower Barn wedding, or a DIY wedding, and you’re keen to chat to me about maybe being a part of it, get in touch and let’s chat. I do book a limited number of weddings per year, so I can give each one everything I’ve got, and spaces tend to go pretty quickly. So, if you’re keen, let’s get the ball rolling. After this one, I’m itching to get back to Great Bower Barn!

Massive love and thanks to Leanne & Sam for having me and letting me be a part of their day. I really had the best time and my memory bank is still crammed full of the best moments with some new and familiar faces. Seriously guys, thanks so much for having me!

Alright, enough chat from me. Time to check out this amazing story…
