I love weddings at Cripps Barn, I do more at it’s sister wedding venue – Cripps Stone Barn, but to be honest, they are both gorgeous and have plenty of lovely places for photos. Carole-Anne & Nick’s Cripps Barn wedding was a lovely summer one last year in 2016, and the weather didn’t disappoint. It was a very hot day and their ceremony was held outside under the wooden gazebo – such a beautiful setting. We did some photos with their beautiful old wedding car, and later there were emotional speeches, toasting marshmellows in the fire pits and sparklers – what more could you want!
I’d done a lovely pre wedding shoot with Dan & Vicky and their dog Inca so felt like I knew them when it came to photographing their Cripps Barn Wedding in April here in the Cotswolds. I went to their lovely cottage to photograph the bridal preparation, where it was good to see Rowena Wilson doing wedding make-up and Kelly Cooper doing hair. The weather looked a bit iffy for a while – it tipped down on the way to the barn, but luckily brightened up after that. There are so many lovely places for photos at Cripps Barn, and inside looked beautiful as well thanks to gorgeous flowers by The Honeysuckle Flower Co. They had some very talented musicians: great to see Angharad James again on the harp, and to meet Dan Greenaway in the evening. The sparklers were out in the evening for some fun photos – Cripps Barn looks very pretty after dark.
A beautiful autumn day for Robin & Ellie’s wedding at the wonderful Cripps Barn – well, it did rain a bit, but after the rain we had the most amazing autumn sunshine. The barn looked splendid decorated with sunflowers by Laura from Cotswold Blooms. They had a very tasty looking carve-your-own mixed grill for their wedding breakfast followed by an extremely energetic Ceiledh! Heaps of fun.
