Cripps Barn - Amy & Kieren

Cripps Barn Wedding Photographer

Set in the middle of beautiful rolling Cotswold countryside, Cripps Barn is one of the venues everyone in the Industry knows and loves. Focused purely on delivering special tailor made weddings, and a photographers dream!

As for Amy & Kieren, they couldn’t have made my job easier! As well as being friendly, welcoming and wanting my relaxed approach to wedding photography, they were an absolute joy to be around. Amy’s cheeks by the end of the day must have ached from smiling so much, which made every photo with her in shine!

We had a beautiful spring day, that at times resembled peak summer, and Cripps Barn was able to show off its gorgeous outdoor ceremony space. I love shooting outdoor ceremonies. They can be a risk/reward decision, as when weather is suspect (that’ll be always then) it can cause a late change of plan. But when they pay off, they’re amazing!

Our couples portraits were a blast. With a rapeseed field on the door step it seemed a crime not to use it, resulting in one of the days many memorable moments.

And with an amazing clear sunset, I captured some lovely moments as Amy & Kieren spent a few minutes away from it all taking stock! Including using the sun for an an epic “ring of fire” pic, which is one of my favourite little “tricks” I have in my kit bag!

With the day not quite over, there was plenty of dancing and fun still to be had, and I left with yet another highlight of the year already!

Check out the highlights gallery below.

Thanks for having me guys!

We don’t even need to wait for all of our wedding photos to be ready to say that Lee is incredible at his job! What we’ve already seen (from our pre-wedding shoot to our sneak peak of our wedding day) has made two newlyweds smile from ear to ear. He clearly loves what he does, captures the most amazing moments in a photograph and is a wonderful person too.

As my brother said, “When did you manage to sneak off to have photographs taken in the fields!?” Lee seizes the moment so easily that you’re never away from your beloved guests for too long.

Thank you so much – we can’t wait to see the rest! ??

On completion on photos – These are absolutely incredible – thank you SO much! We loved every minute and having you there was like enjoying our day with another special guest. Everyone’s commented on how great you were – thank you, thank you, thank you!
