Every time I shoot a wedding at Cripps Barn, i think 'this is it'....this is the best Cripps wedding. That is how wonderful this venue is. This Cripps Barn Autumn wedding was no exception and I just loved spending the day with Mike and Lavinia and their family and friends. Lavinia got ready at the lovely Cassina Cottages just outside Cirencester, and Mike at the New Inn , which is practically next door to Cassina. The ceremony at Cripps Barn was as beautiful as always with that medieval warm feeling to the barn, the roaring fireplace , candle light and masses of flowers. Such a beautiful setting and a dream to photograph. Lavinia's sister walked her down the aisle, and this was a very special moment to witness.

After the ceremony we did a really fun 'confetti run' which I loved shooting and is always a favourite part of the day for me. Having an Autumn Cripps Barn wedding means that the gorgeous red and yellow leaves are in abundance and makes for a beautiful backdrop. Couple time photos were super easy and we just went for a nice relaxed walk and snapped some great photos. I particularly love the one of Mike kissing Lavinia with the beautiful golden backlight behind them. This is my favourite light, low golden back light. We headed in after that for speeches, which were an absolute riot...such fun and the atmosphere was electric. First dance was beautiful and then the party really got started! This bunch were great on the dance floor, and again, I drove up the drive thinking 'this is is, this is the best Cripps Barn wedding'..until the next one!
