Gate Street Barn wedding photos – Caroline & James
I don’t mind travelling to photograph weddings – but it is nice to cover one that’s local to me – and Gate Street Barn is just ten minutes drive away, in the Surrey countryside between Cranleigh and Godalming. So I was pleased to be asked to photograph Caroline and James’ Gate Street Barn wedding, especially as it’s a lovely venue, perfect for a relaxed event with everything in one location.
Caroline and James are huge Doctor Who fans, so there was definitely a Whovian theme to the wedding (check out the table name cards – and the cake) and the “guest of honour” was a life-size Tardis!
As always we started with some photos of Caroline getting ready and James and his groomsmen in the garden, and then the guests arrived for the civil ceremony in the barn itself.
The weather was kind and we were able to do the family group photos and then some pictures of James & Caroline on their own in the gardens – not forgetting some photos with the Tardis of course! Toastmaster Brian Belton kept everything running smoothly.
James is a musician so after the wedding breakfast he and his band Santonica gave the assembled guests a performance on acoustic instruments – and very good they were too. Then DJ Chris Haslam took over to provide music for the evening’s dancing.
It was a very enjoyable day – I had a great time capturing all the little “moments” during the reception and speeches, especially. Many congratulations to the new Mr and Mrs Stevens – as you’ll notice, they even have the coffee mugs to prove it! 🙂
Here’s a 10-minute highlights slideshow, and below that my selection of stills if you prefer looking at those to watching the movie.
