Shustoke Barn Wedding Photographer

Shustoke Barn Wedding Photographer

What a venue! I love shooting weddings at Shustoke Farm Barn in Warwickshire. If you are looking for a wedding photographer to capture your day at this amazing venue, then look no further as I’ll be your Shustoke Barn wedding photographer.

I am a creative wedding photographer that shoots in a documentary natural style, making sure I capture every moment of your day. Your photographs are more than the day itself, they are about telling your story, the love you share and those who love you.

As an award winning wedding photographer I will make sure that your images are everything you want them to be. Shustoke Barn, with its 18th Century red brick buildings, oak beams and flagstone floors make for a beautiful backdrop to your day. We can make amazing pictures in the venue and wander amongst the scenic grounds where olive trees grow.

Getting the right photographer matters. You need some one who understands you and will make you feel comfortable. My style is unobtrusive, I won’t direct the day, the day unfolds around me and my role is to capture events as they happen. However, we can steal a few moments away to get some magnificent portraits and some family shots and then return you to the party before anyone noticed you’d slipped away.  To find out more about why I am your perfect Shustoke Barn wedding photographer, check out some of the real wedding stories on my website. These really give you a feel of how I capture the whole wedding day.

Shustoke Barn Wedding – natural wedding photography

Shustoke Farm Barn has it all – the rustic features and ambience, it also happens to be light and airy, yet also warm and cosy for winter weddings. This Cripps & co venue is located in rural Coleshill, Warwickshire. It is only 20 minutes from the Birmingham and Coventry city centres, making travel and accommodation options for your guests all the more simple. A short drive from these cities and you’ve like you’ve escaped into the scenic countryside with stunning views, the perfect backdrop for your wedding day.

Wherever you are getting ready in the morning, I’ll be there to capture each moment.  You may feel a little uncertain you want your photographer around at first, but believe me – you do!  This is the key time, the excitement and anticipation for the day is building. Not only will I make some amazing images of you surrounded by those you love, but this is a change to start to get used to me and the camera – it will help you relax and make the rest of the day even more smooth.

The wedding ceremony

The large open room in the barn is where you’ll have your ceremony. High ceilings with timber beams and flagstone floors – that also happen to be under-heated, perfect for those colder months.  The venue encourages you to decorate the room in your style. The bare walls, stone floor, and wooden beams mean that even basic floral arrangements add that extra special touch to this amazing room.  During the ceremony I’ll capture all the moments including the little looks, the hand touches, the exchange of rings, the first kiss and more.

The confetti shots

After your ceremony you may want guests to head outside to the courtyard to gather for confetti throwing, I’ll make sure I capture it all whilst you enjoy the moment. Large arched doors lead from the barn into the courtyard where there is plenty of seating and the area is surrounded by olive trees.  The outside area is perfect for a champagne drink reception or cocktail hour. Once all guests are in one space, relaxed and having fun – I may judge this is a good time to get a few family portraits if this is something that matters to you. I can guarantee it will be slick and no standing around waiting for shot after shot. I’ll make sure everything runs smoothly and guests continue to have fun.

The wedding meal

Shustoke Barn has the capacity for 140 at your ‘wedding breakfast’. The in house catering team cook up some of the best meals I’ve ever had!  All couples getting married at a Cripps & co venue are recommended to come along to one of their ‘Feast’ nights and sample some of the food on offer.

The gallery offers views of  the open kitchen where you can see your food being prepared. The room looks amazing illuminated with the ambient lighting including fairy lights and candles. During the meal i don’t tend to take photos of guests – no one really wants to see themselves eating! But i’ll be there for speeches, and it may be that between courses works out as the perfect time to slip away and make some couples portraits.  Basically leave it with me, i’ll judge the right time on the day based on what’s happening, the light, weather and any other factor!  I’ve been doing this for years, I’ll make sure all goes perfectly.

After the meal, there is a change to head back to the courtyards and make the most of the fire-pits, either for warmth and ambience, or classic marshmallow toasting!

The evening party

All this amazing space to dance the night away with up to 200 guests.  Whether you opt for a band, a DJ or a combination of both, you and your guests will have the most amazing party.  I offer unlimited coverage – this means I cover all your day. That’s no departing after the cake cutting or first dance, i’m on that dance-floor with you and your guests capturing the wild antics and crazy moves. This is when some of the best photos are made and moments you will want to remember.
