The Great Barn
There was never any doubt what-so-ever that Char and Lee's wedding was going to be immense. From the second I met them the chemistry and banter both between them, and also with me was brilliant, we laughed our way through meetings and they breezed through the engagement shoot that they both had been so cautious of.
This lovely couple are a prime example of what an engagement shoot can do to a couple who are 'not so confident in front of the camera', with a few little tips and tricks they were soon throwing vogue poses all over the place, which, as you can see worked a treat on the wedding day too.
The wedding itself was everything I'd imagined and more, when they explained to me their idea of a barn dance/ festival / autumnal theme, I was curious, but they pulled it off with more style than I could have ever imagined, the simplistic details inside the barn, and the rustic nature outside pulled everything together.
I started with the girls getting ready, greeted with the fact that the bridal party had just finished a radio interview, which was a first for me. Whilst Dan checked up on the boys, struggling with their button holes (which appeared to be a first for them).
Both myself and Dan (my second shooter), had a brilliant day, laughing along with all of the guests and having the pleasure of experiencing the best best mans speech I have ever heard! With the addition of a genius game of 'Sure-lee not' and 'Absolute-lee' it was a hilarious take on the traditional speech.
This one is marvellous so please sit back and enjoy my favourite moments.

"So myself and my now husband prior to meeting Katie hated having our pictures taken and were not 100% sure if we wanted a photographer at all. As soon as we met Katie she was really amazing at making us feel comfortable. we had an engagement shoot which really helped us to relax in front of the camera. On the big day itself Katie and her second photographer Dan were fantastic. they both went the extra mile and we couldn't of been happier...... then the wedding photos arrived!!! just WOW. They captured exactly what we wanted to get from the day and the photos. We really are so overwhelmed at how perfect they are. Not only is Katie such a brilliant photographer she is really kind and friendly too. Fully recommend Katie Winter Photography
