In August I had the opportunity to return to Mythe Barn in Atherstone to photograph Libby and Josh’s wedding!
This bride and groom are two of the most kind-hearted people I have ever met and their two beautiful daughters are just as sweet as can be. My second shooter and I were cared for the entire day, fed and watered so well and we immediately felt included and part of the party! Before we left for the night both Libby and Josh gave us huge hugs and Libby shouted over the music, “I’m going to cry!! Can we be friends in real life??” UH. YEHUH!
This means SO much to me as a photographer because I don’t want to be a tag along on your day- a stranger you just hired to take some photos. I want to feel like a trusted friend, someone you can rely on and fall back on. Not to steal all your canapés (although, I mean, let’s not be rude if offered!) but to really capture who you two are and what your wedding day is about. That’s the gold medal right there.
Libby and Josh’s wedding was all about elegance, gorgeousness, glamour, and luxury. Their chosen venue, Mythe Barn, is one of my favorite wedding venues in the West Midlands because it’s modernized yet warm with the exposed beams and fields and gardens surrounding the barn. You also get the whole barn to yourself which is just a win-win in my book!
Libby is actually a wedding and event stylist and she couldn’t have done a more perfect job at decorating the ceremony and dining room in white hydrangeas and candles. I’m pretty sure I kept saying “Wow! Wow! Wow!” when seeing all the white wedding details Libby put so much thought and care into. Keep scrolling to see the copper frame photo booth backdrop with white hydrangea detailing and a Mr & Mrs flower hoop. Also, my favorite, dozens of pillar candles in hurricane vases. So minimal, modern and luxurious. GIVE ME MORE.
Huge props to my girl Priya for being my number 1 sidekick and switching between video and photo with me the entire day. And I can’t forget to mention my incredibly talented friend Emar who literally writes and produces every song to every highlight video, making each one completely unique to each couple and their wedding day. He is awesome and helps me out a TON when it comes to creating these videos. Keep scrolling to see for yourself! SPOILER ALERT. Just wait until the confetti cannon at the end!
