Sarah & Martin… A Thames Chase Forest London Barn Wedding

December 9, 2013 | Weddings

This year I had THE best time when I ventured down to London to shoot a wedding in the middle of a forest … yes an actual forest.

Tucked right in the middle of Thames Chase sits an incredible little barn and a forest centre…..such an amazing little gem

When I met Sarah and Martin for their London Eshoot they were telling me all their plans to turn the barn into a wedding venue for the day and  I knew it was going to be simply perfect … and it was!

There were so many things about this wedding that I truly loved….Their vision to see past the empty space and imagine the biggest day of their lives being held in such a non traditional space was so inspiring… so many hours of work were involved and it really was a home spun wedding in so many ways..

Sarah designed her dress herself and then got a seamstress to make it… Asking the coolest vicar EVER to burst into a full blown version of “wonderwall” on his guitar was just pure brilliance.. She spent hours sewing and creating all the invitations and bunting for the venue .. they decorated the barn… their friend baked all the cakes… shipped in a hog roast…  and suddenly this empty little barn turned into a wedding venue that will remain in the memories of many for a long long time.

So let me introduce you to Sarah & Martin and their amazing Thames Chase Forest Wedding ….

huge thanks must also go to my 2nd shooter Cathanne  who was quite literally a complete star on the day and it was a pleasure from start to finish to have her along.
