Stone Barn - Lizzy & Alex

Stone Barn Wedding Photographer

The right wedding photographer for the right couple is one of my mantras. This is why I am so transparent with my informal, relaxed and fun approach to shooting weddings, as it puts off as many as it attracts, but means I end up with epic couples who book me to shoot their weddings as if I’m a guest, and get them at their most natural!

Lizzy & Alex’s wedding was the perfect example of this. We clicked from our first meeting, and I had so much fun capturing their journey through the day.

Prep time is always a special part of the days story, and Lizzy’s crew were up there when it came to banter. You know it’s a relaxed bunch when upon your arrival the brides sister is having her hair done in little more than her bra and the bride says “don’t worry about her, she doesn’t care”!

Stone Barn in the Cotswolds was our home for the day, and what a place it is! Being a Cotswold wedding photographer im spoiled for brilliant venues, and Stone barn is one of my favourite venues to shoot, with so many lovely textures and spots to escape to for a photo.

The ceremony was quite simply the sort you laugh through with tears in your eyes. A wonderful celebration free of rigid traditions and deeply personal. Loved it.

During the wedding breakfast I was taking a well-earned break, when a shout went out “RAINBOW!!”, Iv never ran so fast! Trying to get cameras primed as I ran, and wrestling through the guests while Lizzy & Alex ran ahead of me into the field for me to get the shot! We got it guys! We got it! Seconds later the rainbow disappeared, and high fives were had all round!



To round the day off we were blessed with a clear sunset and I don’t need asking twice to make the most of one of those!

Stone Barn wedding photography

Lee was absolutely phenomenal.
Definitely one of the best decisions we made about our wedding.
Photos are natural, creative, candid… captured every moment and the lovely honest faces of our guests.
He felt like a guest himself and just went above and beyond our dreams. Super lovely guy, totally understood us and put us at ease. We got photos to wake up too which helped the with the post-wedding blues and a beautiful unique pack in the post only a couple weeks after the wedding!!!!!
It’s so special to have photos to treasure forever and I’m genuinely sad we won’t see him again!
Thank you so much Lee.
