Oh what a glorious day. Gloucestershire has many fine wedding venues, but to get the chance to be a Cripps Barn Wedding Photographer for the day was something we were especially looking forward to. Situated deep in the Gloucestershire countryside Cripps Barn is a real gem, not only is it a stunning barn venue which is beyond perfect for a wedding it also has the option of holding wedding ceremonies outside in their quiet woodland space which is what these guys chose to do.
It truly is one of the most stunning Barn Wedding venues we’ve ever visited. In addition to the beautiful barn space they have outdoor fire pits, perfect for marshmallows and sparklers late into the evening and a colossal BBQ that they cook and prepare you and your guests food on – this will always go down as the day we had “the best wedding food ever!”
A barn on its own in the middle of the countryside is fine, but in a perfect world you have the option to shoot in surrounding fields or scattered farm buildings close by that can give character. Which is another reason this is such a great place, it’s littered with opportunities for great photos everywhere you look. Throughout their wedding we spent the occasional ten minutes here, ten minutes there, nipping off for a few portraits then back to the main event. We got to explore the timber yards, the surrounding wheat fields and the old tin sheds creating unique portraits each time.
We’re so happy for these guys, they’re two of the sweetest people you could wish to meet and we had a phenomenal day with them. Their motto for the day was “Love More, Worry Less” which seems like a perfect mantra to live your life by. Here’s to them….
