GAte Street Barn Wedding Ceremonies
The Barn at Gate Street Barn can hold up to 150 guests for your wedding reception. It features a fantastic long aisle for you to make a stunning entrance and be seen by all your guests during the ceremony.
We love capturing the little moments between you, expressions and glances throughout the day. Great examples are the nervous groom before the ceremony, the relieved “you’re finally here” look, the smiles and light-hearted giggles during the ceremony and the looks of relief when the formal ceremony is concluded and the celebrations can finally begin.
Group Photographs in the Gardens and Inside at Gate Street Barn
While most of our clients prefer natural, reportage style photography, they also want to have a few group photographs taken of the wedding party, parents, brothers & sisters on both sides, close friends, etc. We are more than happy to do this, in fact we provide you with a template list to start with, which you can customise to get just the photographs you want. We then work in an efficient but friendly and polite style to arrange the groups, with help from ushers and family members to get the official group wedding photographs in around 30-40 minutes. If the weather is poor then we can capture some fantastic images in the glass conservatory area between the barn and the bar, which has wonderful natural light for portraits.
Gate Street Barn has some different locations in and around the grounds which can be used as locations for the photography. We can also take you on a short walk on to the surrounding country lanes to capture some wonderful natural shots, leading to the local pond where we can capture wonderful images using your reflection in the water.
Wedding Reception, Speeches and Dancing at Gate Street Barn
The Barn at Gate Street Barn looks stunning when it is laid out for your wedding breakfast – they are a number of different suppliers you can use to provide the perfect meal for you and your guests. The spacious barn area allows plenty of room for us as photographers to move around the room unnoticed while the speeches are taking place. . We will always try to capture a great image of each person giving a speech but also get the reaction shots around the room as people enjoy the comments. Bonus points are awarded for the photographs of a groom with his head in his hands during the speeches!
While the barn is turned around for your evening reception, your guests can gather in the bar, chat together and watch the highlights slide show we have put together using your very best images of the day. There are usually 40-50 amazing images for you and your guests to view on the HD TV screen in the bar. It’s a excellent way to relive the key moments of your day in the company of your family and friends.
We look forward to capturing your first dance together as a married couple, ideally showing some of the emotions which have been building up between you on the day. We also enjoy photographing the party atmosphere afterwards as you and your guests enjoy the music together.
