Sarah & Adam
And so I’ve arrived at Kingscote Barn.
Kingscote has been on my wedding venue wannabe hit list for some time now. A change of scenery for me and somewhere new to get creative. I’ve known Adam since we met at a catwalk show some years ago and we caught up again on a mini engagement shoot a few weeks before the wedding day.
Adam is an accomplished photographer himself so it was quite flattering, albeit slightly daunting to shoot for someone else in the same profession….I don’t know why, I guess it just is!
The decorations, table layouts, flowers and food on the day were quite honestly some of the best I’ve ever experienced. I’ve really not seen much better, not in combination like this.
THIS was the place to be on Sunday the 22nd of September this year and if you weren’t here, I feel for you, really, I do.
A successful wedding isn’t just made up out of a great venue and supporting staff. It’s primarily about the people attending. (Although special mention goes to LA Wedding and Event Styling , Strawberry Field catering and Sorori Design Florist for being just cracking to work with… if you’re reading this, you guys were so nice to me, thank you. It’s really nice when people consider me).
This was a wedding full of actors, performers, singers and sheep. So everything was in place for a kicking wedding, which it was. Make no mistake about it THIS was the place to be on Sunday the 22nd of September this year and if you weren’t here, I feel for you, really, I do.
Everything took place here and with Adam being a photographer he asked the guests to not use their cameras during the ceremony. Either when Sarah walked in, during the ceremony or on exit as husband and wife and if you look further down you’ll see the results. Everyone is looking at Sarah or Adam. As it should be.
I don’t advocate a full on unplugged wedding (I can’t be everywhere at once) but for those important moments yeah, put the mobile devices away and use your eyes if you could.
From the unplugged weddings I’ve done the common reason is that the couple want you there with them. When they walk down and up the aisle and when they’re exchanging their promises to each other they want you to connect with them. From the heart. Not through a 3″ LCD display.
There were lots of tears during the speeches and I felt really caught up in the emotion on the day, the first dance was full on and also full of life.
Lastly we did the signature star shot which takes a lot to do…but it was soo worth it. I can’t wait to go back.
