Wedding venue: Gildings Barn has the traditional rustic style of an old-fashioned barn - cosy and welcoming in the winter with plenty of room outdoors for summer weddings. Despite its olde-worlde feel, the main barn dates from the 1990s and was made from timber from trees that fell in the "Great Storm" of 1987. Venue Website
Photographer: Chris Mann has been photographing weddings through the UK and overseas for the last 15 years, so has plenty of experience, and a relaxed natural style that fitted well with this couple's approach.

Bride and Groom: Holly and James
Wedding venue: The Asylum – it’s a very romantic venue, incredibly atmospheric, and the closest we could get to marrying in an environment that felt like a church without having a religious ceremony. Venue Website
Photographer: Michael Clements from My Beautiful Bride. I actually found him via a wedding blog and loved his style of photography so much that I sent him an email straight away.
Michael was very forthcoming and responsive, incredibly easy to work with and accompanied us on venue recces to assess the light, come up with great shots. We really let him lead in terms of what he thought might look good (even when my mum tried to get the dreaded ‘group family shot’) and were so impressed with the results. We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding photographer!

Bride and Groom: Sheery and Jeremy
Wedding venue: King's Place – The venue was great. We wanted a flexible space that could be used for the ceremony, reception, dining area and dance floor. We also wanted an outdoor area in case the weather was good. There was also some great places to take pictures. . Venue Website
Photographer: Minna Rossi Photography. Our photographer was fantastic and we could not recommend her more highly. She went above and beyond to get to know us and help make us feel comfortable in front of the camera. She got on really well with all our other suppliers include the venue staff, videographer and band and took time to get to know them beforehand. We were so excited to receive the pictures and video and both our photographer and videographer captured the day perfectly.
