The wedding of Kayleigh and Graham @ Maidens Barn

Kayleigh and Graham’s wedding

It was a real pleasure to be asked by Kayleigh and Graham to photograph their wedding day at Maidens Barn.

Maidens Barn is a great venue, its run by a family and nothing ever seems too much trouble for the staff.

The day started with me meeting up with Kayleigh and the bridal party at the Saracen’s Head in Great Dunmow.

Nick (the second photographer) met up with Graham and the boys at a local hotel at Stanstead Airport.

This allows us to get a few photos of the groom and his party before the wedding day

When Kayleigh arrived, Maidens Barn opened up the gates allowing the bridal car to dive straight into the venue, which was great.

The ceremony room is great, its a large well lit open barn allowing us to get some great photos of the couple.
After the ceremony we went outside for the confetti and the reception drinks.

After the group and family photos we had some time to have a bit of fun, so we gave Graham a bottle of Champagne to do his best F1 style spray. They also finished off the bottle of Champagne.

There are lots of places for some great photos, including a wild meadow.

We spent a little time with Kayleigh and Graham to get a few images of just the two of them.

The ‘friends’ decided they wanted to pick up the bride and groom, we just kept our fingers crossed as the brick paving would have been a tad hard had it gone wrong!

After the speeches we had a bit of fun with Kayleigh’s girlfriends.

We went back to the wild meadow to enjoy the sunset and the great lighting.

Kayleigh wanted to throw her bouquet – after a few false starts this went well with one young lady making a determined effort to catch it.

The night finished for us with the first dance and music from Kayleigh’s Dads band.
