A Florida Wedding at Maidens Barn with Jess + Byron


Jess and Byron held their beautiful wedding at the stunning Essex wedding venue, Maidens Barn. Being recommended photographers at Maidens Barn we were excited to return to this fabulous venue. Jess and Byron decided to bring in elements to their wedding that were special to them personally. For Jess it was a nod to her treasured family holidays in Florida. Their wedding cars were a Florida plated blue Ford Mustang, and a white Cadillac which was a surprise transport for the bridesmaids. There were “hidden Mickey’s” within the reception details, including little wooden “Mickey’s” in the table decorations and also carved into the wedding cake.

For Byron it was a nod to his football team, West Ham. The West Ham crest was carved into the wedding cake, and during the confetti throwing, guests also blew bubbles at a nod to the football team.

The day was one of the hottest so far this summer and the couple had an outdoor wedding ceremony in the courtyard under the archway. Jess looked stunning, and was complemented by her beautiful bridesmaids who wore dusky blue, matching the men’s cravats. She also chose to wear white Converse shoes which had been beautifully decorated by her friend.

We had such a fantastic day with this truly lovely couple, and all their family and friends. A huge thank you to Jess and Byron for choosing us as their Maidens Barn Wedding Photographers.
