Natasha & Sam: Wedding Photography at Shustoke Farm Barns

Rustic Barn Wedding at Shustoke Farm Barns

I cannot believe it has been almost 7 months since the wedding of Natasha and Sam at Shustoke Farm Barns. Special thanks to my second shooters on the day the lovely Nicola Gough & equally lovely  Laura Henderson

It is the greatest compliment to be asked to photograph the wedding of siblings of my previous couples and in 2011 I photographed the wedding of Sam's sister Laura and her husband Adrian at Moxhull Hall in Sutton Coldfield.  I have also had the pleasure of being their 'family' photographer on a number of occasions with the arrival of little ones in their family.  I was delighted when Tash got in touch to ask if I was free on their wedding date.   I feel the relationship with my couples is the recipe to put them at ease and achieve great natural photography, when the relationship already exists it is so lovely to work with couples and families that I already know.  

Natasha and Sam had so many personal touches on their wedding day, the venue is very intimate and stunning anyway, but the attention to detail with all the beautiful flowers and decorations was just simply stunning.  I love rustic barn wedding venues and I am so lucky to have Shustoke Farm Barns so close by.  By coincidence I will be returning this year exactly 12 months after Natasha and Sam's Wedding!  It's funny how that happens sometimes! 

Even the weather didn't dampen their day, the rain was pretty persistent, but nobody let it spoil their day, it was smiles all round.

The day began with an intimate wedding party of family and close friends, there were fun and games as the children (and some of the adults) ran through puddles barefoot between dinner courses, the day was full of emotion and I left feeling that love is real and love exists and that I have possibly the best job I could ever wish for.  Here is Natasha and Sam's day in pictures...
