We first met Karen and Richard at a Maidens Barn taster evening and were so pleased when they asked us to photograph their wedding at this gorgeous venue. Before their wedding we met up with Karen and Richard near their home for their engagement shoot and a chat about their wedding plans.
On a sunny day in May we started at Karen's parents house, capturing Karen and the girls getting ready before they set off for the ceremony at St Andrews Church in Barnston. Karen arrived in style, in a classic MG Midget driven by her father. Rich and all the guests were waiting inside the beautiful white church for their grand entrance followed by an emotional ceremony.
Guests gathered outside to congratulate the newly weds and shower them in confetti, before Karen and Rich headed off in the MG to their reception at Maidens Barn. Alex from Maidens Barn opened up the gates so that Rich could drive the MG straight into the centre of the courtyard which created a perfect backdrop for some photos of the bride and groom.
During couple portraits time the guests milled around with drinks and canapes in the courtyard and the new barn before a few family formal photos. Everyone then sat down in the beautiful barn ready to receive Karen and Rich for the wedding breakfast, followed by speeches and then dancing late into the evening.
Here are a few photos from their Maidens Barn Wedding and if you are looking for an Essex Wedding Photographer we would love to hear from you.
