Holly and Gary’s Wedding Photos at Brookfield Barn in Surrey

Holly and Gary's Wedding at Brookfield Barn in Surrey

Brookfield Barn is a modern barn wedding venue created to a very high standard.  Located a short drive from Horsham it’s a family-run establishment catering for wedding couples seeking to celebrate their dream day in the beautiful Sussex countryside.

The barn features stunning oak frames with scenic views of the grounds outside. It’s possible to seat up to 138 guests during the ceremony and wedding breakfast or up to 200 during the evenings entertainment. To the rear of the venue is a sun-filled patio area overlooking the idyllic lake and fields beyond. There’s also the option to get married outside with the lake as your backdrop which many couples choose to do when the weather is a little warmer.

Holly and Gary were recommended to me by their friends Kirstine and Richard who got married at Northbrook Park three weeks earlier so it was fantastic to see both couples again at Brookfield Barn.

The day began with the preparations where I photographed Holly and her bridesmaids and  bridesman being made up. I arrived at Brookfield Barn around thirty minutes before the ceremony to capture Gary with the guys and the guests arriving. It was a beautiful day with clear blue skies and this made for the perfect weather for the outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour. Holly and Gary have lots of amazing friends who know how to enjoy themselves and this made for some fantastic documentary images.

For their couple shoot we ambled around the various scenic locations for some intimate time away from the crowd. There were some amazing heartfelt speeches coupled with lots of laughs all round and the atmosphere at Brookfield Barn was buzzing! There was just enough time afterwards to capture the last few minutes of the light before the twilight hour set in. I set up my flashes outside the barn to capture Gary and Holly under the beautiful pink sky with them brightly lit in the foreground.

The evening kicked off with a fabulous first dance routine before everyone jumped on the dance floor to celebrate a fantastic day. I loved Gary and Holly’s wedding and didn’t want to leave! Here’s the best bits from their wedding day at Brookfield Barn….

I received a lovely thank you card from the couple with a very kind message:

“Thank you so much for photographing the best day of our lives! The photos truly are outstanding! – Holly & Gary xx

    Eva and George’s Wedding at RHS Wisley in Surrey

    Eva and George sunset wedding shoot at RHS Wisley in Surrey

    The stunning RHS Garden in Wisley is an incredibly magical venue for weddings and completely different to any other venue I’ve had the pleasure of working at. Set in the heart of the Surrey hills, this unrivalled venue offers a charming and unique setting in which to spend your special day. Within the extensive grounds of the RHS garden there’s a variety of different venues to choose rom the iconic Glasshouse overlooking the stunning lakes to the Waterlily Pavilion that looks out on to the canal.

    As the recommended photographer for the RHS Garden, Wisley, it’s always a huge pleasure to work there and I was really excited when Eva and George asked me to capture their Summer wedding in June. It was the hottest day of the year with the temperatures soaring under deep blue skies and I knew it was going to be a fantastic day. I joined Eva and her entourage of bridesmaids at her mother’s house in East Horsley for the preparations. There was instantly an amazing vibe floating around as I successfully managed to recite all of the 9 bridesmaids’ names back to them, which was met with a big cheer! 😉 It was a lot of fun capturing the preparations but it was soon time to head on to the church to meet George and the guys.

    Eva looked stunning as she arrived with her father in the car and the ceremony was full of laughs and wonderful moments. As the newlyweds emerged from the church they were met with a shower of confetti and I’m still chuckling as I recall one handful making a direct hit in to George’s mouth!!

    As we arrived at Wisley the gardens looked stunning in the sunshine and after greeting the bride and groom everyone tucked in to afternoon tea and Pimms! With an acoustic guitarist providing some beautiful music in the background this made for a lovely atmosphere and a really relaxed, Summery vibe.

    The RHS gardens are packed with endless opportunities for photos and I took Eva and George on a brief tour to see the sites and capture some romantic moments of them away from the crowd. Although it was the first time either had had a professional couple shoot they were both really natural in front of the camera and this made for fantastic images.

    Upon entering the Glasshouse for the wedding breakfast it was literally breath-takingly beautiful! With the trickling waterfall and the tables set up among the wilderness, it felt like we were outside in the thick of nature. After some moving speeches and more laughs there was just enough time to squeeze in a sunset shoot before the dancing got underway! Everyone at the wedding could feel the excitement and threw themselves in to the party, creating a wonderful atmosphere and an epic finish to the day.

    Eva and George’s wedding was simply amazing and I’m very grateful to them for inviting me to capture their very unique and special day. I was delighted with their review that they left on my Google page…..

    “My husband & I are absolutely thrilled with Murray’s pictures of our wedding day, and how he went above and beyond all of our hopes for a photographer. He was incredibly professional and also fitted in so well with the wedding guests due to his kind nature. We were thrilled to have him with us on the day and so grateful for the amazing pictures we have received. Highly recommended.” – Eva & George

      Lucy and Tom’s Wedding at Nonsuch Mansion in Surrey

      Lucy and Toms Wedding at Nonsuch Mansion in Surrey

      When Lucy & Tom asked me to capture their big day at Nonsuch Mansion I was super excited! Situated right in the heart of Nonsuch Park it’s a Grade II listed building that oozes character and charm so I always love working there! The couple opted for a traditional theme but wanted lots of relaxed images to reflect their personalities.

      It all began at Lucy’s parents where she and her entourage of bridesmaids got ready for the big day. Their ceremony was held at their local church before heading to Nonsuch for their wedding reception in the afternoon. The sun was shining with stunning blue skies and everyone was gathered on the lawns for drinks & canapes. After a few images around the staircase I took Lucy and Tom around the grounds for some quite moments together away from the crowd.

      The wedding breakfast was served in the beautiful Orchid Room, complete with stunning floral centre pieces and music themed table decorations that reflected their blue and ivory colour palette. There were some great speeches and lots of laughs before the dancing was underway to get the party started.

      I thoroughly enjoyed working with Lucy and Tom for their Summer wedding at Nonsuch Mansion and I was thrilled with their response to the images. I was also delighted that this wedding featured in Your Surrey Wedding Magazine, Coco Weddings and Nonsuch Mansion’s own website here.

      “Just wanted to say a big thank you for capturing our wedding. We absolutely love the photos, thank you so much! It was so difficult to pick our favourites for the album! Thank you again for doing such an amazing job! Love from, Lucy & Tom x”
