31/10/19Bury Court Barn Wedding Photography
Beth and Will at Bury Court Barn, near Alton, Hampshire
Some of you will know that I have just celebrated my 25th Anniversary as a professional photographer. At every wedding I photograph a guest will take me to one side and say that I look like I hugely enjoy what I do – which is absolutely true. But one of the other great joys of what I do is photographing different members of the same family over a number of years.
I first met Beth at her sister Nikki’s wedding nearly 4 years ago, so it was wonderful to see her and her family again – and to see Nikki and Mark with two small children! It was great too to meet Will before the day and go over their ideas – the one thing I wanted to make sure of was that there was no sense of ‘the same again’ about the photographs. I was helped by the fact that Beth got married in August at Bury Court Barn, whereas Nikki got married in December at Ramster Hall.
A very military wedding at Bury Court Barn
Bury Court Barn was a magnificent backdrop for this sunny August day – despite dire forecasts and rain as I arrived it turned to be everything you would wish. I’ve photographed at Bury Court many times over the years and this day had an added poignance as it would be my last visit – the venue is closing at the end of the year.
Beth and Will look simply amazing – so handsome together and so radiantly happy – and the presence of a Guard of Honour and uniforms always make for outstanding photographs.

There are so many gorgeous moments here, during the ceremony, in the gardens and from the dancing, I couldn’t have asked for a better last wedding at Bury Court – thank you Beth and Will.
Thanks also to Jacaranda Catering who I usually run into at Ramster, your food was wonderful as always, and to Kim Shaw from Kimberley Shaw Flowers who I worked with for many, many years at Clandon Park, it was so good to see you again.
