The Tithe Barn in Petersfield is set on a vast 300 acre farm on the Hampshire and West Sussex border. With it’s huge stone arches, flag stone floor and overlooking balcony it’s a wonderful venue and I always enjoy working there. The barn has been completely restored whilst the surrounding grounds offer endless photo opportunities for back drops. Jemma and Patrick are a lovely couple who chose the Tithe Barn for their relaxed wedding in September. The day began at Jemma’s parents’ house for the preparations before Jemma and her entourage were escorted to the ceremony in an authentic New York taxi and NYPD police car complete with a flashing siren! It was a novel entrance and this really set the tone for an exciting day ahead.
Jemma had forewarned me that Patrick was a little apprehensive about their couple shoot however within minutes both were really relaxed in front of the camera and I was capturing some lovely intimate moments. The barn looked magnificent and made for the perfect setting for the wedding breakfast and evening entertainment. Just before the dancing got underway I convinced the newlyweds to nip outside for a very quick night shot just as it started to rain and I was really pleased with the result! I was very grateful to Jemma and Patrick for having me along was bowled over with their response to the images!
