Hayley & Stuart chose ‘Rivervale Barn’ as their Wedding venue – which is our opinion was an absolutely fab choice! It is described as one of the most romantic Wedding venues in Hamspshire and it really did live up to it’s reputation! We know Hayley & Stuart as Chris actually went to school with Hayley when they were both much younger! This made the day extra special for us as photographers as it’s always great to catch up with old friends during such a special occasion!
We started the day with Hayley and the girls in the purpose built ‘getting ready’ rooms, allowing them to completely relax knowing they were only seconds away from the ceremony! There were laughs, a few tears and lots of old school classic tunes!
The Bridal suite provided a gorgeous backdrop for photos. One of our favourite moments when photographing Weddings is the moment the father of the bride sees his daughter for the first time and Hayley’s father didn’t disappoint! You could see the joy, pride and pure love for his little girl and it was an honour to capture that precious moment.
When the girls were ready, we made the short walk to the stunning high-beamed barn for the ceremony where a nervous Stuart was waiting patiently. Flooded by natural light, this venue is perfect for flattering photos of the Bride and Groom making their life-long vows to one another!
After the ceremony, guests were spoilt with fizz and nibbles in the quaint courtyard, allowing us time to steal the newlyweds and explore the stunning grounds Rivervale Barn has to offer. Hayley & Stuart made our job easy – they were relaxed in front of the camera, allowing us to capture their personalities and their overwhelming love they have for one another.
After a stunning meal, the evening celebrations continued kicking off with some of the best group dances we’ve seen! See below..!
Hayley & Stuart… What a perfect Wedding day – thank you for letting us be a part of it and we hope you have the most amazing lives together!
