owen house wedding barn

I was so pleased Chris Foster asked me to help him be the Owen House Wedding Barn Photographer.  This understated event in the picturesque Cheshire countryside was a model of sophistication and class.

Chris and I arrived at the bride’s parents’ house to find Jemima a picture of dignified calm, serene amidst the bustle. With seven beautiful bridesmaids all on the scene, things can get excitable very easily. Yet Jemima radiated poise and elegant composure throughout. And her dress absolutely fit the bill – so graceful and subtle, exquisitely beautiful. She looked incredible. Before long, it was time to head over to the venue, just a short drive away.

sophisticated wedding venue

Owen House Wedding Barn is a family-run farm in the heart of the beautiful Cheshire countryside that has been transformed into a sophisticated and fashionable wedding venue for couples seeking understated elegance and style. Dressed to impress, Mark and his groomsmen were meeting and greeting their guests in the glorious British summer weather, and spirits were high.

Rustic chic

The ceremony itself was conducted with aplomb as you would expect, with a particularly touching and erudite reading from all seven bridesmaids. Then after a quick refreshment in the Summer sun, we sheltered from the heat in the barn for some portraits. A wall of hay bales, vintage carts, old crates and some clever use of light and shadow, the designers of this place have really put together a great space for some memorable couples shots. It was a joy to shoot and Jemima and Mark were experts in love.

Party time!

After a delicious meal and some suitably entertaining speeches, it was party time! Our beautiful couple commenced proceedings with a graceful first dance but the guests were quick to join in and let their hair down. I always love this part of the day, when all the jobs are done and inhibitions are shed. The night beckons and the good times roll.

Below is a small selection of some of my favourite images from the day.
