A Shustoke barn ‘scorcher’ of a wedding!

On one of the hottest days of this year, I had one of the best weddings of this year! Sarah and Tom’s wedding was at the amazing Shustoke Barns in the West Midlands, and I am so grateful to have been their West Midlands photographer for the day. Thanks for hiring me guys!

Bridal and groom preparations

I arrived in the morning at Sarah’s mum and dads house, where the sun was beating down so the bridal preparations were outside in the garden. I had the pleasure of working with the super talented Harriett Hair. She did an amazing job! I highly recommend checking out her work if you are looking for a hair stylist in the West Midlands for your wedding day.

After spending some time with the bridal party, I then went to meet Tom and all the groomsmen at Shustoke Barns to take some shots before their big moment. It was absolutely scorching but everybody was so happy and excited and I could see that this was going to be an amazing day. Here are some shots from the morning.

Shustoke Barn Wedding Photography

When I arrived I was greeted by Becky the wedding co-ordinator who ran the day perfectly! I Was blown away by how beautifully decorated the barn was. These guys nail it every time! I could see this was going to be another perfect Shustoke Barn wedding!

Shustoke Barn is such a stunning wedding venue and if you are looking for a beautiful wedding then I highly recommend checking it out. It is set up in the most amazing countryside and has so many opportunities for photographs inside and outside. Here are some images from the morning decorations.

The ceremony was just stunning at Shustoke, and they have such an amazing way of decorating the venue. It just looks absolutely stunning every time I photograph here and I love this venue is definitely in my top 10 favourite wedding venues. Here are some shots from the ceremony to show you how beautiful it was.

Remembering their good friend Toby Lloyd

The whole day was fantastic and we had so much fun. However, there was one moment where the fun stopped for a momeny and everybody remembered the loss of their good friend Toby Lloyd. Toby sadly passed away only a few weeks ago. He was only 27 years old. Sarah was so brave in talking about him and as a tribute to his life one of his best friends got up and played Tenacious D tribute song, which was a song that Toby loved to sing whenever they all got together. Everybody had the lyrics and the whole place was singing along. Such a lovely way to remember Toby. My thoughts go out to his family and friends.

An amazing Shustoke Barn wedding!

Despite the Sun and the heat nobody let that get to them! There were many laughs, lots of good drinks and food and great company. Sarah and Tom’s wedding had it all! it was just everything you would want for the perfect wedding day. Here are some shots from the rest of the day.
