In The Beginning
We first met Jo and Tom while we were photographing the wedding of their closest friends, at another fine Devon venue- Pynes house. Jo was one of Charlotte’s bridesmaids, while Tom MC’d the celebrations, with exactly the right amount of charisma! We had a fab day, so were thrilled when they got in touch to book us as their wedding photographers.
The Corn Barn.
Jo and Tom chose the pretty and laid back Corn Barn as the perfect location for their sunny wedding day. And what a setting it was! Based on an active, working farm, The Corn Barn is surrounded by rolling hills and an impressive apple orchard. Could a Devon Wedding Venue be any more Devonian than by having its own cider business? Unlikely!
The twinkle lights that covered the beams in the barn made everything feel just that little bit more magical. Jo walked down the aisle as a nervous Tom waited at the other end. After the happy ‘I Will’s, everybody burst into the sunshine to shower the bride and groom with confetti.
The Sunny Middle.
The early Autumn weather was so glorious that the speeches were held outside, where the embarrassing stories flowed, and Tom cringed. Well, if you will ask your own Dad to make a ‘Best Man’s’ speech, it’s only to be expected! The relaxed and blissed out weding party made the most of the sunshine and pretty garden, before heading back into the barn for a right royal feast.
The Beautiful End.
The warmth of the evening was such that Tom and Jo were super keen to explore the farm and take some time for themselves to do a few couples portraits. Having grown up on a farm, Jo wanted their photographs to incorporate elements of the working farm setting. So we had a whole heap of fun wandering the orchard, exploring the machinery and seeing if Tom’s mouth was big enough to fit a whole apple in.
As we made our way back to the barn for their first dance, the sun set and the music started, signalling party time! Now, we’d seen these guys party before, so we knew we were in for a good night! The fabulous band jumped straight in with their floor fillers, and made sure the shape throwing just didn’t stop, all night.
