Shustoke Barn Wedding Photographers – Kelly and Tom
We loved being wedding photographers at Shustoke Barn . It was our first time there. If we had to choose a venue to photograph a wedding in the Midlands it would be Shustoke Barn , in Warwickshire, created by the amazing Cripps and Co Group.
About Shustoke Barn
Shustoke Barn is a very popular wedding venue with good reason. It is a large, rustic, 18thcentury, converted Red Brick Barn, oozing with character. The civil ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening reception take place in one large barn. The barn has high vaulted ceilings and is very grand. It ,almost, looks cathedral-like but in a rustic way. It has lovely ambient light streaming through huge glass doors on either side of the ceremony area. Perfect light for taking fabulous wedding photographs. At the end of the ceremony the Barn is turned into a stunning wedding breakfast room. A spacious courtyard is available for the guests to mingle. There is also a bar/lounge area where guests can chat and relax. In the evening fire pits are lit in the courtyard so the guests can enjoy the rest of the wedding day under the stars.
Kelly and Tom’s Wedding Day
On their wedding day Cathy met with Kelly and her bridal party at The Belfry Hotel in Wishaw, Sutton Coldfield to photograph the preparations. There was plenty of excitement and the Prosecco was flowing.
Brian, meanwhile, made his way to Shustoke Barn to get photographs of the venue and the details.
Tom decided not to have preparation shots so he arrived at the venue later.
Kelly and Tom’s wedding went without a hitch. The atmosphere was a wonderfully relaxed and mellow. We had a fabulous time photographing their guests and, of course, Kelly and Tom.
As photographers we are often searching for the right place to photograph our signature images. At Shustoke there are a lot of places indoors and outdoors for amazing photos. We took them around the grounds of the venue as well as inside and into the evening we did a shoot with smoke bombs, which was magical.
