Gate Street Barn wedding photography
Gate street Barn, is a gorgeous barn venue, tucked away (literally) in Bramley, just outside Guildford. It’s perfectly situate din the Surrey hills & is a gem of a surrey wedding venue. A quaint barn, which oozes charm & warmth.
When we met with Sarah & Simon for their pre wedding shoot, Sarah told us she was particular fond of the resident cows Gate Street has, so we were hoping to get some photo’s with them in the background.
The morning was lovely, Gate street barn has some fabulous on site accommodation & the girls were getting ready in the Farmhouse. Jennifer from Lolo & Co was working her mad hair skills & Elisa was busy doing an amazing job as always, with the makeup. It was such a chilled morning, like super chilled. Sarah was loving the pampering & the joy of so much space to get ready in, everyone was able to do their own thing & have their own space.
Simon & the boys got ready in Yately before heading over to Gate street, to put the finishing touches to the barn. The morning flew by & before we knew it, it was hitching time. The walk down the aisle was emotional for Sarah & her girls, I love these happy tears & the pure joy you see in peoples faces. Sarah & simon were giggling their way through the ceremony & this made for some super cute photo’s, another reason I love doing what I do, not many people could see these moments between them, but I could & captured it for them, documenting it in their life.
The rest of the day went off without a hitch & the barn was transformed from the ceremony room, to a lovely english garden picnic reception. The devil is in the details & as their speeches were before dinner, they knew their crowd & provided crisps & even some dip on a few of the tables. Sarah dad’s speech was something truly different. He waited till after dinner & instead of making the speech, he had booked a male acapella quartet to do it for him, it was honestly brilliant & totally unexpected. Everyone loved it, as you can see.
It was a really emotional day for all, but the strength & support from family & friends shone through. We ended the night with a sparkler exit, well exit for us, as we left them all drinking & dancing the night away.
Thanks to Sarah, Simon & their wonderful families for a lovely day & also thanks Gate street barn. We had a blast & can’t wait to be back soon.
