Bashall Barn Wedding Photography. Introducing the most autumnal wedding of the year! Jen & Seb’s wedding last Saturday was an absolute treat for their guests. All the leaves on the trees outside the church were that perfectly crisp lovely colour of oranges and yellows, and the day turned from pretty rainy to sunny at the perfect time. These lucky guyyssss!
It was my first time shooting at Bashall Barn, which is a beautiful barn wedding venue in Clitheroe, Lancashire. Before we headed over there, we celebrated the ceremony at Jen’s family church where lots of her relatives have tied the knot themselves at, St Stephen’s church, Skipton. It was a hilarious morning before the day kicked off. The bridesmaids were on top form, and we spent the entire time killing ourselves laughing! I was reunited with one of my favourite make up artist’s Beauty with Becca, who’s just an absolutely brilliant presence and fun to have with the girls in the morning! Couldn’t recommend her more.
I then darted off into Skipton central to the Yorkshire Rose to find the boys watching the end of the England v New Zealand match. A couple of pints in, and the boys were ready to go, looking very sharp in their Marc Darcy suits. I zoomed back to the girls as the boys set off for Bashall. Jen jumped into her gorgeous dress from Ava Rose in Colme, and it was church time.
St Stephens in Skipton is a stunning Catholic church. I always really love the interior of Catholic churches, they’re so decorative and often really bright and full of light, and this one was of no exception. The look on these two’s faces as they met at the top of the aisle was magical. I loved capturing the way Jen and Seb look to each other, you can see so much emotion in their eyes. It couldn’t have been a more lovely ceremony.
Out into the churchyard beneath the autumnal trees for confetti, as everyone threw the beautifully coloured confetti over them. It’s such an autumnal shot, and I think Jen’s auburn hair just makes it even more so! J+S said goodbye to a very emotional Seb’s grandma, that was a lovely moment to capture. Then everyone hopped on an old red London bus, cracked open a few tinnier and an hour later we were all at Bashall ready to warm up inside.
Bashall was full of energy as the groups of friends caught up, and I mingled my way around everyone capturing the laughter and off the cuff moments. With a few group shots outside, and a few portraits down the lane done and in the bag within 15 minutes, J+S enjoyed a really nice long drinks reception. Which I think is the best way to do it, always maximise your time with your guests!
Speeches time, as the room looked spectacular and wowed everyone as they entered in. Jen and Seb danced their way through, and we were straight into Jen’s Dad pulling out his ukulele and singing his own little songs for them! It was fairly emotional too, as Jen’s twin sister paid huge tribute to her, and the two of them were in tears. Seb made a wonderful speech for his wife, followed by his two best men reminiscing some excellently proper boys stories.
The night commenced pretty quickly as it gets quite dark early now! With about a billion sparklers at the ready, we got a load of merry guests out and went crazy with them all. Then it was time for the first dance, and again it got emotional as Jen danced with Seb, then with her Dad. The party started and the music went on, and I kept photographing the many interesting dance moves to grace the dance floor.
Congratulations Jen & Seb! I hope you love every single one of the photos!! Congratulations once again x
