“We loved all the photos! You captured so much love and laughter and loads of moments we wouldn’t have got to see otherwise.”
I always love working at Brookfield Barn so it was great to be back there again to be Lizzie & Mike’s Brookfield Barn wedding photographer.
In the morning I joined Mike and the guys at a hotel nearby before heading up to Brookfield Barn to meet up with Lizzie and the girls. Once Lizzie was ready we headed downstairs as they had chosen to see each other before the ceremony. Lizzie looked stunning and Mike’s face seeing her in her dress for the first time said it all.
Luckily the weather was on our side and it was a nice hot summers day. They had a beautiful outdoor ceremony overlooking the pond where Lizzie’s mum had done all of the decorations and flower arrangements herself, a really lovely and individual touch.
Whilst Mike and their guests awaited Lizzie’s arrival a good friend of theirs entertained everyone with acoustic covers. I always love when you’re able to personalise parts of the day like this to make your wedding uniquely yours.
Lizzie and Mike decided to opt for a slightly less traditional first dance and rather than waiting to have it in the evening decided to have a much more intimate dance during the cocktail hour with just their closest family there to witness it. Once again, their good friend played guitar and sang their favourite song as they danced on the bridge. It was a lovely moment and so moving; I don’t think that there was a dry eye in the house.
The wedding breakfast was held in the beautiful oak-framed barn and Mike’s best men proceeded to give him a good ribbing. Though I’m sure he expected nothing less from them. Having been good friends since they were kids they had stored up plenty of material.
As the sun went down and the music started the celebrations really got underway.
