I did a pre-wedding shoot with Jenny and Mark a few weeks before their wedding around Abingdon which was so much fun, I was really looking forward to their festival-themed wedding day at Lains Barn near Wantage.  Please take a look at barn weddings in Oxfordshire for some more wedding inspiration!

The Lains Barn wedding photography of Jenny and Mark’s big day was really relaxed and fun, and I can’t believe how lucky we were with the weather.  We had rain showers on the way to the church, during the service and during the meal, with lovely clear spells inbetween!  I started the day with Jenny and her bridesmaids at Steventon House Hotel for her bridal preparations – hair, make-up and getting into her beautiful gown.  There was lots of fun chatter, this group were obviously great friends! Mark had sent Jenny a card to open which had her smiling for ages 🙂

We had a few quick portraits of Jenny before she departed for Lains Barn which is just down the road – Mark had hired a gorgeous vintage car for Jenny, who had been expecting a taxi!

I met Mark and his best man at Lains Barn eagerly awaiting Jenny’s arrival.  They had a quick game of football whilst waiting which was fun, then we waitied in the barn for the arrival of Jenny, her dad and the bridesmaids.  It was a lovely ceremony and reflected the fun this couple share.  We then photographed the groups before talking a walk for some portraits of Jenny and Mark in the grounds and next to the lovely old grain store.

Soon it was time to take a seat for the speeches and wedding breakfast.  Mark and Jenny had chosen a festival themed wedding, as they have attended many many festivals together – we had festival flags in the garden, wellies on the table which had been decorated by the guests, lots of photos of the couple with their friends at festivals, and the all-important festival bracelets for the guests.  Such a fun idea!  After the delicious pies we commenced with speeches and a magic show, followed by cutting of the cake and dancing.

Its very clear to see how much in love these two are, they’ve been together for a long time and are quite obviously meant for each other.  Wishing you much happiness and many more festival outings together!

I am always delighted to hear about Lains Barn weddings and Steventon House weddings.  I have covered many weddings at these venues and would love to chat about your big day, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
