Joanne & Stuart – Old Luxters Barn

Joanne & Stuart Banner LR

All my weddings are beautiful but especially when the Groom is your cousin, so at this particular wedding not only was I photographer but also a guest. ¬†I got to wear a fancy hat, buy a new outfit and a cracking pair of shoes ūüėČ ¬†I was over the moon when Jo and Stuart asked me to capture their big day (no pressure ūüėČ ) and what a gorgeous wedding it was. ¬†Old Luxters Barn is in the Hambleden¬†valley, near Henley-on-Thames,¬†set within an area of outstanding natural beauty. ¬†The¬†barn is part of the Chiltern Valley¬†Winery, Brewery & Vineyard and a fabulous setting for a wedding with its 18th¬†century rustic appeal. ¬† Jo & Stuart ¬†aren’t fans of being photographed and didn’t want to normal formalities of wedding photography , they requested lots of fun shots as well as the natural moments during the day. ¬† ¬†I did still manage to take a few romantic shots, but on the whole they had so much fun, I don’t think they will ever be shy in front of a camera again! ¬† It was a fabulous day from start to finish and although we did have a few showers nothing would dampen the spirits of our happy couple. ¬†From brightly coloured socks to Hunter wellies, fun with golf clubs (as Stuart is a golf pro), piggy back rides and running races, it was brilliant. ¬†After the ceremony and photo shoot we were treated to a very tasty meal, hilarious speeches and lots of scrummy ice cream. ¬†Everyone finally kicked off their shoes and danced the night away, it was the perfect end to a perfect day. ¬†Jo and Stuart, ¬†thank you for the fun, the laughs and for being so easy to photograph. ¬†Huge Congratulations to you both, we wish you a very long and happy life together and THANK YOU for asking us to be a part of it. ¬†Lots of Love xxx

Thank you to all the staff at Old Luxters Barn for all your hard work, it was a wonderful day.
