The Barn At Upcote - Steph & Tom

- 5 Oct 2018 -

Unless you had the postcode you'd never know The Barn at Upcote existed, and even with the postcode you'd think Google Maps is directing you off some weird tangent!  Nestled literally right in the heart of the Cotswolds (yet a stones throw away from Cheltenham), The Barn at Upcote is a hidden wedding venue gem. It ticks of many boxes, barn, cotswold stone, fields, sheep, peacocks...the list goes on! It's actually only relatively recently become a wedding venue (past few years), however already its becoming a favourite haunt of mine. Every time I visit i'm always warmly welcomed by The Barn at Upcote team and am always excited at the prospect of discovering a new corner to photograph (which there are plenty!). 

After the long hot Summer spell Steph and Tom, were quietly relieved that the weather had cooled a little, ensuring that they (and their guests) wouldn't be sweltering in the heat. 

As I approached the driveway I was greeted by Steph's happy and cheerful bridemaid's who were putting the finishing touches to the entrance...  

 

If only you could tap the atmosphere.. the anticipation yet excitement is always a wonderous mix!  

Is that guests arriving...oh and Tom looks like he's ready!

Back to Steph and she's putting her finishing touches to her stunning dress...

Boy does Steph look the part...

What do you reckon dad?.... 

Right let's do this...

Not long to walk now...

What do you reckon Tom? 

Yes they did it!...

Right lets get this party started...

Confetti & bubbles...always a good mix...

How do work one of these things?

Fun and games in the garden...

Doh! Well someone had to always lose...

Whilst much of my wedding photography is reportage, I always make time to do a few group shots... they're actually quite fun!...

Right then Steph & Tom, are you ready to spend a bit of time together? Yep of course you are...

With the barn turned around, it's now time to go in for the wedding breakfast..

Uh ohh... the much needed summer rain has arrived...this little one has forgotten what puddles look like!

This clever guest made their wedding cake... what a dude!

With cup of tea in hand and not preturbed by the deluge of rain.. it was now time for a spot of sack racing..are you sitting comfortably?!...

Wow! Thanks Steph and Tom for letting me photograph your special wedding day.
