Lapstone Barn Wedding Photography – Ruth and John

Lapstone Barn  – Ruth and John

Wedding photography at Lapstone Barn, Blockley, Chipping Campden, Gloucestershire.

Ruth and John were married at the gorgeous Catholic church of St Catharine in Chipping Campden with pre and post events at the stunning Lapstone Barn, just a stone throw away from the Church in the centre of the market town. This wedding had it all, incredible dress, which you will see once you scroll down, a stunning Rolls Royce car, a trip to Broadway Tower, the cutest dog, beautiful flowers, amazing venue, stunning couple and from a photographer’s point of view, amazing sky and sunset!

The girls started the day in the stunning house, on-site next to the barn, the make-up was done by the lovely Sandie at Sandra Elizabeth Hair and Makeup , followed by the final prep done in the barn. The girls worn lilac dresses that matched the flowers perfectly and the sky in the evening, that bit was luck!

The guys got ready down the road at a beautiful venue called Dovecote Barn, dad, grandad and the very cute nephew all in their blue suits and colour coordinated ties and pocket squares with the bridesmaids. Time to get married, so the guys headed off to the church to greet the guests.

It was a lovely ceremony at the church, which all happen in a flash, the vicar was very funny and after the I’do’s wished them well and we all vacated for a scramble to escape the town centre through the tourists and traffic.We headed up the road for a few pics by Broadway Tower. It was a stunning day, we found a little lane overlooking the tower, parked up the car and set about getting some photos, it was a little windy but this was perfect for the vail and keeping the rain away. The clouds in the sky over Broadway Tower were spectacular so it was hard to tear myself away from here but needs must and we headed back to the barn for the wedding reception.

As always the barn looked beautiful, light, airy, magical and very cosy and it wasn’t long before everyone was sat down for the food and formalities. As always the speeches gave us sentiment, love and laughter and the cake sat watching patiently in all its sophisticated glamour! Of course before being lovingly chopped up, this sounds so brutal!

We couldn’t leave out the furry family member, Ruth and John’s gorgeous dog, who almost stole the show, it was close, but fair too say Ruth pipped the pooch. We got some fab pics over by the house and barn and prepared ourselves for the Sunset!

One of the best parts of the day for any photographer is the hour before sunset (the golden hour) the light is so romantic and this is the best time to get out especially if the sky is going red! Lapstone is a perfect location to see the sun go down and capture the sky, and Ruth and John and they absolutely nailed the sunset shots. Portraits done, it was just left for the first dance, but before that could commence Ruth decided she wanted to throw her bouquet, and as it was dark and getting cold she threw it in the main barn making for a fab series of photos!

The rest that say is history, or drunken antics, not sure which, but regardless I would like to wish both John and Ruth all the best for their future together… what a day!
