I had such an amazing time photographing Jo & John’s fabulous Grittenham Barn Wedding back in June this year. I love the venue so much with its rustic charm and beautiful scenery all around. Jo & John’s wedding day was a blustery one, certainly blew away a few cobwebs and tipped over a few jam jars of beautiful flower arrangements that lined the steps of the barn, but the rain held off and I don’t think anyone minded or even noticed one bit as their wonderful friends and family celebrated their big day with them. I loved every minute too – I had such a giggle, a little boo during the speeches (!!) and felt so welcomed by everyone. We started at the Lythe Hill Hotel and Spa for the getting ready shots. I had recommended Lou of Daisies Flowers to Jo and also Sarah from Enhance Make-up – so it was a little bit of the dream team on hand that day!
The barn looked so beautiful decorated in a vintage shabby chic style – the old wedding photos from the families’ past were such a lovely touch too. Jo and the bridesmaids all looked amazing in their dresses and John & the boys scrubbed up pretty good too! I worked alongside Simon from Egg Cosy Pictures who was capturing it all on video – can’t wait to see the results of that! Hope I wasn’t video-bombing too much – I do try to keep out the way of the film roll! I also met Alan from Petworth Wedding Car Hire for the first time, what a lovely chap and I rather loved his 1954 Riley, Lady Linda.
Photographing Jo & John off on their own for 10 minutes in the grounds was a real delight, they are so very much in love and you can’t help but smile when you’re around them ❤ 🙂 ❤
All that remains is to share some of their hundreds of photos from the day and to thank Jo & John once more for having me along to capture it all for them! xx
