Shustoke Barn Wedding
Nathan & Kelly
I had the privilege of being Nathan & Kelly’s photographer for their Shustoke Barn wedding in April. This lovely couple got married at Shustoke barn in Birmingham, a beautiful brick barn surrounded by picturesque countryside. I had been so excited about shooting Kelly & Nathan’s wedding since visiting the venue for the first time earlier in the year, it was such a perfect setting and had so many great spaces to capture beautiful images.
Of course Kelly & Nathan were a great couple too which made it all the more perfect. They were so relaxed throughout the day and so comfortable in front of the camera, so I was able to capture so many of the wonderful ideas I had planned for in the run up to their big day.
I absolutely loved getting photos of Kelly with her best friend Rachel, they were great in front of the camera, they laughed all the way through. I would also like to say thank you to Rachel for being so helpful on the day, gathering guests for group photos and checking I had everything I needed. It is always lovely to have a close friend or family member to help rally the troops.
Everything about this Shustoke Barn wedding was relaxed and elegant, the venue, the couple, the decorations. I had so much choice when it came to places to take photos, firstly there was the courtyard, a beautiful area of the venue with plenty of space for the group shots. The courtyard was surrounded by decorative brick walls that I couldn’t resist using as a backdrop too. Then there was the space at the front of the venue which included a beautiful walkway through the trees decorated with lights and a huge open field, perfect for getting those simple and elegant shots. I got to use them all and I am so please!
Congratulations Nathan & Kelly!
