wedding in the white barn

Ellie and Matt’s Wyresdale Park Wedding was super colourful and pretty and so much fun to photograph!! Ellie got ready at the family home with her parents, brothers and all the family in Poulton. It was a hive of activity with the kids getting involved too! She and her bridesmaids had hair perfected by Luke Taylor and Riah Hair and make-up by Ami Humber at Retreat Beauty. I absolutely loved the moment she came down the stairs and the reaction on her family’s faces.

This was the first time I’d photographed a wedding at Wyresdale Park and wow!! What a place!! It is a perfect blank canvas to put your own stamp on… and definitely the most light-filled barn wedding venue I’ve seen. The decor that Ellie and Matt had chosen was so pretty, super-bright colours and lots of garden flowers. I loved the colourful jugs they had filled for the centrepieces and all the handmade bunting.

The ceremony was accompanied by some beautiful piano music and we then gathered in the courtyard to welcome the couple outside with confetti. Guests then had drinks and canapes on the lawn in front of the hall which was lovely and very relaxed. Whilst their guests were mingling we snook away for ten minutes to explore the grounds and let Ellie and Matt have some photos of just the two of them. We found a swing in the woods which was lots of fun and also walked down to the lake where they were very daring and got into a boat! I loved that Ellie was completely up for this and not bothered about a little bit of water or mud.

Once we returned the staff were ready to welcome everyone into the barn for the wedding breakfast, followed by some brilliant speeches. I do love this part of the day where everyone is completely relaxed and often full of emotion (me included).

The dancing in the evening was AMAZING! Their friend DJ’d from the balcony which was a great spot to photograph from too 🙂

A massive thank you goes to my wonderful assistant Katie who has been coming to some of my weddings recently and capturing some cracking shots!

Here’s a list of the suppliers Ellie and Matt chose and then their full set of images…
