IF YOU LOVE BARN WEDDINGS THEN YOU’LL LOVE THIS COTSWOLDS WEDDING!
When Lizzie and Jemal first got in touch with me about their wedding, I was so thrilled – they were planning a laid back barn wedding with an intimate ceremony and a live band for the reception. Lizzie and Jemal are the loveliest people and I couldn’t wait to shoot their wedding!
THE EXCITEMENT BEFORE THE WEDDING
Heather and I started the morning at Ingleside House, where the couple and their friends and family were getting ready. It was so chilled out, because everyone had met and had drinks the night before and they were all in such a good mood. Lizzie wore a gorgeous lace dress and had some amazing accessories (including the coolest pair of earrings I’ve ever seen) and Jemal wore a gorgeous suit with a velvet jacket and bowtie they both looked really incredible.
The wedding took place at Old Gore Yard Space, and was a romantic intimate ceremony surronded by their friends and family. They had a beautiful reading from their registrar, which brought pretty much everyone to tears. After the ceremony they walked down the aisle together, and then they were showered with confetti.
The wedding reception took place in the barn area, which they’d decorated with fresh florals and foliage. One of the great thing about weddings at the Old Gore Yard Space is that it doesn’t need much decoration wise, and it looked gorgeous!
It was a cool day, which wasn’t in the plan but the couple didn’t mind. While the guests enjoyed canapes and cocktails, we wandered around the venue doing fun and creative portraits. My favourite photo from our couples session is the one of Lizzie and Jemal at sunset. Check it out below!
During the reception they a live sax player, which everyone loved. For the wedding breakfast they had a grazing feast, and churros for dessert, which was absolutely delicious. Afterwards, they had some wonderful speeches from the Groom and his Best Men and then party got started.
For the evening they had a live band, who was a huge hit. The evening ended with everyone on the dancefloor partying the night away, which was so much fun, you could tell everyone was having a great time. The whole wedding was just the happiest occasion, from the beautiful vows to the wonderful speeches, you could really feel the love in the air.
I love this venue because you can totally personalise it. Weddings at Old Gore Yard Space are amazing, because the surroundings are absolutely amazing.
