Barn Wedding Photography Tips

Explore some of my recent Barn wedding photography posts below to pick up some handy tips for planning your own wedding party at a barn venue. Barn weddings are a popular choice, especially for a Summer wedding where guests can enjoy the weather in the gardens surrounding a barn. Although I’m based in the Home County of Hertfordshire, I regularly photograph weddings all over the UK, including The Great Barn at Ruislip, Micklefield Hall and Wasing Park.

Planning a Barn Wedding

If you’re looking for a rustic wedding venue and love exposed oak beams and timber frames, a barn wedding venue might be the best choice for you. A lot of barn wedding venues come as a blank canvas, allowing you to create the perfect styled wedding for you and your guests. Some venues will have a license to hold civil ceremonies, which may be a great option for keeping everything in one location. Also check out the indoor and outside spaces so you can plan for whatever the British weather brings on your wedding day.

Documentary Barn Wedding Photography

My background is in news and photojournalism. Having worked for The Times newspaper in London for 18 years, I use the same story-telling techniques in my wedding photography – an excellent choice for couples wanting a relaxed approach to their wedding photos. When choosing your barn venue, be sure to check out the lighting in the barn. Good lighting really helps documentary wedding photography. Plenty of natural daylight is best, but that’s often not possible in oak barns, especially in the winter. In those situations, darker walls and fairly even lighting in the centre is best for photography. Avoid coloured up-lighters around the walls unless you’re a fan of silhouettes and odd colour casts!
