Amy & Lee
I’m back at Cripps Barn with Amy and Lee’s Wedding from the first week of November. I was able to jump between the two of them during prep with Amy choosing to get ready at the New Inn, with Lee at the Village Pub in Barnsley. Special mention goes to Lee’s choice of suit, I really liked it. Especially the woven tie thing, really nice.
Amy’s choice of flowers and shrug reflected the time of year nicely and as you’ll see further down, November seems to be a good time for weddings in regards the weather. It was last year, and the year before that.
Amy’s dad was from the Black country but it didn’t make a bit of difference when she joined him for the trip to the barn. I can take thousands of photos at a wedding but it’s these moments between moments that I never tire of.
Once at Cripps Barn I found Lee waiting for the ceremony to start and that they’d decorated the aisle with tall lanterns, candles above the mantlepiece and flower chandeliers hanging from the roof.
Ceremonies here are always like a big group hug and they’re lovely to be a part of. Once they’d said their vows we took full advantage of the nice weather. Something has to be mentioned about this particular time of year at Cripps Barn. It’s the leaves. They go a gorgeous amber / orange and absolutely carpet the wooded area. When the sun cuts through the leaves it’s something to behold. A true photographers dream.
You can do all the family formals with a backdrop like that (see the images below). I’ve never had bad family photos at Cripps Barn as there’s always somewhere to go but I’ve never had any quite so nice as at this wedding.
Once we’d finished, dinner kicked off the late afternoon and the woodland feel and decor continued around the tables.
They opted for a Cheese cake, or a cake made out of Cheese. Anyway, the sweet tooths were catered for with a large number of Krispy Kreme doughnuts and I’ll be honest I did compliment them on the display in order to bag a couple. Hands up, it is my Achille’s heel. I can be morally compromised for doughnuts. I’m sorry.
For dinner they had a posh carvery in that instead of a joint of beef they had steak to carve which went down really well as the food is always great here. The rest of the evening was made up of people doing shots, dancing and being a bit silly in places. And there’s nothing wrong with that.
Here’s some more images from their lovely day. I’m there again in March. Good times.
