“Tom and I have just looked through our amazing pictures and feel like we have just lived through the day all over again! Thank you so much for capturing our wedding so perfectly, you were a delight to have around and we have so many incredible photos to remind us of what a special day it was, tornado, thunder claps and all! Thanks again Nick, we will definitely recommend you… With very warm wishes, Mr and Mrs Kinsella x”
Susie started the day at Barnsley House in Gloucestershire, where she got ready with her family and bridesmaids in a room in the hotel grounds, surrounded by its famous gardens.
A classic navy blue Jaguar motor car was waiting to whisk Susie from Barnsley House, the short distance to her wedding at Cripps Barn.
Despite the rain, Susie and her bridesmaids radiated warmth and happiness, and she carried the most beautiful flowers…
She was escorted by her father.
Tom’s business is in oak framing and he was particularly keen on the construction of the outside structures, and new built Oak Room at Cripps Barn. Pleached trees line a track alongside the barn.
Inside, a wall of the original stone barn bears gaffito from the Eighteenth Century.
Tom waited in the old barn by a huge open fire, decked with ivy and large jars of country flowers.
Susie, preceded by her bridesmaids who wore mismatching dresses in navy, entered with her father and wore an ivory dress by Suzanne Neville, and silver sling backs by Jimmy Choo.
After the service the happy couple walked together through their congregation…
…as rose confetti petals were strewn across the barn floor.
Outside lanterns were hung in the surrounding trees…
…and a stylised tree provided the background for the table plan.
The radiant couple walk into their reception in the Oak Room…
Tom had his navy blue three piece chalk stripe suit made to consciously echo his father’s own 1970′s wedding suit, which Tom had worn when he first met Susie at a mutual friend’s wedding.
Their cake contained chocolate and fruit layers, with navy blue ribbons continuing the colour theme.
Outside, the lanterns and fire pit were lit…
…whilst inside the dancing commenced.
Late in the night the fire and lights of the party glowed in the storm clouded sky.
Electric fairy lights illuminated the potted birch trees outside…
…as well as those surrounding the dance floor inside the barn.
