“We’ve just got through them with a couple of glasses of rationed wine. You’ve helped us relive such an amazing day, which in a way feels even more special now that the world is in so much upheaval.
We count ourselves as so fortunate to have got our day in in the nick of time and for picking you both as our photographers. I have no doubt you are putting other couples at ease as their days are rescheduled and it is so clear to us that what you offer is so much more than a photo.”

“Just one more from us. We wanted to just reiterate to you again how much we enjoy our photos. Looking at them now, seeing the expressions of the family we now can’t see, and just reflecting back on a day of closeness has been part of what has kept us sane over the past weeks.
I perhaps hadn’t appreciated until now the real value of a captured moment. Thank you.”
Lucy – 4th May 2020
So as it turns out, Lucy & Jaspals wedding at the Clock Barn was literally the wedding to end all weddings. This was the last time that we got to be in amongst it all, the hugging, the gently squeezing our way through the heaving crowds. Ducking out of the way as someone swings a sloshing drink in celebration, smiling awkwardly at a guest as we wiggle our way a little closer to them to get a perfect shot of the bride and groom laughing their heads off.
Best of all, hugging people goodbye at the end of the night on sweaty, steam filled dancefloors with smudged makeup and wet shirts, grinning from ear to ear at how good it all is to be in the middle of such a moment. It all feels a little surreal to remember, and we miss it so much our hearts are breaking up a bit.
We knew it was good day right from the off, both Lucy & Jaspal are enormously warm, cheeky and funny and have a brilliant relationship that just fizzles and pops in front of you.
The Clock Barn itself has had a stack of refurbishments since we were last there and it’s immaculate and gorgeous, plus they left all of our favourite crusty tin sheds and barns alone which is a bonus, I was worried they might have been gentrified!
There was so much going on here and I don’t want to spoil the frames below and tell the story before they get a chance to shine but I’ve got to put down just how wonderful and amazing it was to see two people coming down the aisle together at the same time, eyes locked all the way down finally meeting at the front for a beautiful hug. You just don’t get to see that every week and it was really special.
Below, we’ve laid out our favourites from a day that would have lived long in our memory anyway, but seeing as it’s the last one we’ll get to shoot for a little while I think it’ll become even more important to us. I don’t want to tinker with this post to talk about Coronavirus too much, Ill save it for a blog post of it’s own in the coming days, but suffice to say that if you’re already booked in with us and struggling, perhaps you just need to offload and have a bit of a grizzle, then we’re right here for you, just reach out.
All the love
