Wedding Photography and Video at The Great Barn // Simon and Ingrid

On the 14th July 2017 Simon and Ingrid held their marriage ceremony at The Great Barn in Banbury.  Ingrid got ready at the barn, supported by her mother and best friend, with the talented Lucy Beesley MUA. In her beautiful wedding gown from Love Bridal, holding her trailing bouquet of white flowers, by Hibiscus Floral Design, Ingrid stood before us as a gorgeous, glowing bride.
Played in by her Step-Dad’s guitar trio The McAlleys, Ingrid gracefully walked  with a beaming smile to meet Simon at the end of the aisle.
After vows were shared and tears were shed, the newly wed couple were whisked away on the ground’s buggy for their photoshoot. Our photographer captured some beautiful shots through the lush greenery and over the lilly-pad carpeted lake.
Simon and Ingrid then returned to mingle with friends and family, enjoying the delicious canopies the barn had to offer. Once the ceremony room had been transformed into beautifully decorated dining quarters, thanks to Yellow Star Designs, guests were invited to their seats for the couple’s grand entrance as husband and wife.
Like a theatre encall, the most enthusiastic round of applause that the Finishing Touch team have ever heard accompanied Simon and Ingrid into the wedding breakfast.
Heartfelt and hilarious speeches then followed, leaving the guests in tears and stitches. Provided by Kearney’s Catering, a grand three course meal was presented and guests awed over the lovely wedding cake from Marks & Spencers.
Before the sun set, the team brought the happy couple out into the corn fields for an atmospheric photo shoot, capturing the golden sun amidst the golden grains.
With a live band Blue Juice Simon and Ingrid had their first dance and were quickly joined by friends and family who certainly knew how to bogey.
Everything came into place perfectly for this wedding celebration and we are so grateful to have captured such a wonderful day.

Wedding Photography and Video at Stables Lodge // Fleur & Martin

Martin and Fleur tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony at St Wystan’s Church in Repton, Derbyshire.  Fleur’s Mother owns the beautiful Stables Lodge set in a scenic countryside, where Fleur got ready in the morning with her adorable children. Her 4 year old daughter Freya was her Bridesmaid and her little boy Henry, who was 21 months old was the Pageboy. They looked incredibly cute in their little Bridesmaid and Pageboy outfits!
After their beautiful wedding ceremony the couple headed back to Stables Lodge for their reception, which was set up in a marquee on the grounds.  A Harpist entertained guests as they mingled and congratulated the newlyweds. Once the guests were seated, a Toastmaster announced the speeches, which were given by Fleur’s Brother, Oliver Martin’s Bestman, and Martin himself. Oh boy, were the speeches emotional. Tissues at the ready for team Finishing Touch!
Meals were presented after the speeches and once the guests had completed their meals, we took Fleur and Martin out to neighbouring corn fields for their couples photoshoot. We really liked the golden light during the evening and were surrounded by beautiful cornfields, which made for some beautiful couple’s portraits. Fleur and Martin were a dream to capture and the setting for the shoot was incredibly dreamy too!
After their photoshoot as a newly married couple, the couple went back into the marquee for their cake cutting and first dance. We were greeted by a huge “LOVE” sign, which created a beautiful light and background from the couple’s first dance. The dance floor officially opened and the party started to celebrate the marriage of Martin and Fleur.
We adored this beautiful wedding day and cannot thank Martin and Fleur enough for having us be part of their special day.
