The Wedding of Natalie & Craig

A couple of weeks ago, I photographed the wedding of Natalie & Craig in the Barns of the Farmhouse at Redcoats (https://farmhouseatredcoats.co.uk/). Unusually for March, it was a bright warm sunny day! I hadn’t been here as a Redcoats Wedding Photographer since the barns were restored. I made sure I got some shots around the grounds before I headed to the Bridal suite.

Upon arrival, preparations were in full swing with the hair and make-up fully underway.

Now that the bridal party were ready, I headed down to the Barns. Here I got some shots of the ceremony setup and then met up with the groom and his best man.

The guests began to arrive and soon it was time for the ceremony to begin.

After the ceremony, it was the drinks reception. I gave the couple some time to catch up with friends and family before organising the group shots. I then took the couple around the grounds of the wedding portraits.

It was time for the wedding breakfast, so we returned inside for the meal to begin and to grab a first look at the cake (https://www.facebook.com/clocktowercakes/), which Natalie had organised as a surprise for Craig, who loves his motorcycles.

Following the meal and speeches, the room was turned around for an evening full of dancing with live music provided by the Indie Killers (https://www.theindiekillers.com/)
