Shustoke Farm Barns Wedding
I LOVE visiting new wedding venues. Sure, it's great going back to locations I am familiar with but that first shoot at a new venue is always wonderful. Seeking out the light, looking for interesting angles, discovering hidden spots... it's great fun!
Back in November I visited Shustoke Farm Barns in Coleshill, West Midlands to photograph Catriona and Mats wedding day. It was my first time at this stunning Warwickshire Wedding venue, and I hope it won't be the last! Similar in nature to it's sister property Cripps Barn, it is a wonderfully well presented wedding venue... with awesome light in the main barn. Sometimes shooting wedding ceremonies in barns in the Winter can be tricky, but not here... it was sensational!

My day actually started out at Catriona and Mats home in Birmingham. Cat was a little late home from the hairdressers which meant I had to work quickly to get a few shots ahead of the wedding, but it all worked out just fine... I'm super pleased with the images we came up with before we made our way over to Shustoke Farm Barns.
I'm a bit of an airplane geek (and I say that proudly) so I had to get a shot of this Emirates A380 taking off from Birmingham Airport over Coleshill on it's way (I presume) to Dubai.

I wanted this blog post to be a little different to most of the others I post and show a few images of the venue itself as opposed to lots of images of guests etc. Catriona and Mathew decorated the venue wonderfully, using trees, candles and uplighting to make the most of the beautiful buildings.
A quick thank you to the lady that helped me with this shot of the wedding cake. It was hugely appreciated and it turned out pretty well! Thank you :-)

I always enjoy photographing action on the dancefloor... it's that time of the day where everyone lets their hair down and just gets on with having a great time, and this wedding was no different. I'm really pleased with the images from the dancefloor at Catriona and Mathews wedding... their DJ Benny Smyth laid down some great tunes and his lighting set up was fantastic. It really helped me to create a set of images I really love.
Catriona and Mathew have been an absolute delight to work for. Totally easy going and very welcoming they simply let me get on with my work without any fuss and were happy to give me time to shoot images whenever I asked for it. Thank you so much!
Congratulations guys. Here are a few of your wedding photographs.
