A perfect countryside wedding in Sussex

Deep in the countryside of Kirdford is Bartholomew Barn. It is a beautiful wedding venue and the barn has been full restored providing a versatile space and stunning light for photography.

In all the weddings I have photographed I think this was the most relaxed, yet well planned and smooth wedding day. I took with me some customised props for the bride and groom to use in the photos: these add that little extra special twist to the photos whilst keeping the photographs classic andtimeless.

The weather turned out to be absolutely glorious, and despite a short shower during the wedding breakfast, the blue sky continued to stay filled with picture-perfect white clouds. Cloudy weather is actually fantastic for wedding photography because they diffuse the harsh shadows from the sun and therefore create soft light for the photographs.

Here are a few of my favourite photographs from the day.
