Having already photographed a wedding at Rivervale Barn I knew how gorgeous the barn is for wedding photography so was very much looking forward to working there again. I had already photographed Oli and Leyla for a pre shoot in Richmond park which showed them there was nothing to be scared of being in front of the camera.
Rivervale Barn Weddings
Rivervale Barn is situated just in the Hampshire borders in Yateley and is a very popular wedding venue in the region and its not hard to see why. The staff at Rivervale are absolutely first class and the food served by Galloping Gourmet is out of this world. There is a fantastic cottage at Rivervale Barn where you can prepare and stay after the wedding and is where I found Leyla and her bridesmaids in the morning. At Rivervale beauty at the other side of the courtyard there is a separate make up studio. This really is everything in one place!
Oli and the boys were getting ready at a nearby hotel and arrived at the barn in plenty of time to welcome all the guests and it wasn’t long till everyone was seated and awaiting the entrance of the stunning bride. It was a very heartfelt and moving ceremony and was a joy to photograph.
Natural and Relaxed Wedding Photography
A lot of the day I’m there to document the story of the wedding, to blend in with the guests allowing you to just relax and enjoy the day and I do the rest. This was no exception at Oli and Leyla’s day and there was so much to document especially when you throw in magicians, live music, games and a sparkler exit in the evening! As usual at Rivervale Barn I took advantage of the stunning gardens which didn’t disappoint as I took Oli and Leyla for a walk around. Something I thought I might not have the chance to do after the terrible weather the night before.
Huge thank you Oli and Lelya for making me feel like one of the guests at your wedding. You guys were so friendly and make a great couple, it was a pleasure to document your day. Here are some of your photographs. I can’t wait for the next time I’m photographing at the barn again. It can’t come soon enough! Thanks also to Ran Wilcox for assisting on the day.
