Way back in the spring of 2011 I was contacted by Beryl asking if I was available to photograph her wedding at Cripps Stone Barn. At that point in time her planned wedding date was over two years away, yet she’d fallen in love with my photography and was keen to secure my services. Having taken inspiration from my blog, including Colin & Kimberly’s wedding at Cripps Stone Barn, (where you may spot some similarities in the wedding dresses) Beryl set to work creating her own few personal touches.
Actually, when I say ‘few’, what I should probably say is ‘few thousand’! This wedding was teeming with details, ranging from comical hand painted signs to home made cakes. There was a magician and a bouncy castles plus numerous personal touches of old photos fixed up around the barn. A collection of vintage bottles and tins were used to display flowers on the tables and family members helped create the underlying theme that must be a first for any wedding I have ever been to – Walt Disney! Yep, this wedding was a fusion of vintage boho chic, a splash of 50’s glamour, mixed with Mickey & Minnie mouse. You couldn’t dream it up……yet for once I have to say the wedding details for this occasion totally went with Beryls personality and really made the day special. For this reason, I’m going to blog a pretty extensive quantity of ‘wedding detail photos’, which isn’t my norm, but I feel really worked for this wedding and were certainly refreshing to see.
So, without further ado here are a selection of photos from Sean & Beryl’s wedding at Cripps Stone Barn.
It was a pretty hot start to the day which required double fan cooling plus being dabbed with toilet roll. I hope this hasn’t spoilt the romantic notion of a wedding for everyone!
Clear signage was out so people knew the way to Cripps Stone Barn ;-)
Definitely nervous laughter.
As part of the wedding ceremony Sean & Beryl locked this box which had inside a bottle of wine plus a note from each other which was then to be opened on their 10 year wedding anniversary.
I’m guessing confetti doesn’t taste nice.
I tried one of these, so to who ever made them, top marks, it was delicious :-)
Mickey mouse shaped rice crispy cakes are a definite first at any wedding I have ever been to.
This magician was fantastic, yes, he really did make this persons mobile phone disappear inside of the balloon.
Keeping a close eye on her card….but check out below which card the magician flips out the pack.
Yeah, no one wanted this card back after the trick :-(
During dinner (well in between courses) Beryls cousin played and sang….even writing a song specifically for the married couple. Cool huh?
Not my camera, but Sean’s, set up in the back room for guests to have a few snaps taken. I’m reckoning there may be quite a few of the kids based on my observations.
I hope you’ve enjoyed looking at the photos. If you’re having a wedding at Cripps Stone Barn and need a photographer, please contact Matt Davis Photography for a chat.
