Amazing Weddings at The Great Tythe Barn in Gloucestershire
Recommended wedding venue
It’s wonderful to cover weddings at The Great Tythe Barn. It’s a venue that has it all, set in the heart of rural Gloucestershire. The venue even has it’s own resident pigs. They are rare breed pigs, they are real characters and a great source of amusement for any wedding party, particularly the kids! I’ve even known couples to book the venue just on the basis of the resident pigs!
The focal point of the wedding venue is the grade 2 listed, 16th Century Cotswold stone Barn. I love converted stone barns; they always have a wonderful sense of space, proportion, and light, which is great for photography! The Barn has been restored with loving attention retaining many of its original features, whilst retaining all the comforts of the 21st Century. The Barn itself is surrounded by a walled garden and courtyard which is perfect for drink receptions during the summer months.
I shoot a limited number of Weddings per year
I can’t believe it’s March already rolling onto April. Last year was manic, my quota for 25 weddings was booked up in no time. I limit myself 25 weddings a year possibly pushing 30. That way I don’t burn myself out. This keeps me fresh for every wedding I cover ensuring that the bride and groom get the b best service possible. I know of a number of wedding photographers taking on 50 to 60 weddings a year. Whilst this can be maintained for a few years, sooner or later they burn themselves out. I’ve seen it happen so many times.
Tasha and Sam’s late summer Wedding at the Great Tythe Barn
Anyway, I’m reminiscing about Tasha and Sam’s Wedding at the Barn late last summer. They are both fans of my natural style of Documentary Weddings. Sam, in particular, didn’t want to hang around posing for the camera, Being in front of the camera didn’t come naturally to him, so I told him not to worry and just get on with enjoying his day. In fact, the more he and Tash enjoyed their day the better the photos would be!
I arrived at the venue to photograph Tash and the girls getting ready. I often cover the groom getting ready as well if they are at the same venue but Sam is a minimal fuss man, I think he was pretty much ready in 5 minutes flat! No worries plenty of opportunities to get some shots of him during the course of the big day.
Lighting at The Great Tythe Barn can be quite a challenge for any photographer, but get it right and you can capture some amazing shots in this beautiful location. On top of that every time I’ve covered weddings at The Great Tythe Barn, I can’t help noticing how attentive the helpful the staff are. Naturally, this makes a really enjoyable atmosphere for the Wedding party. They also look after the photographer too!
