A pleasure for us to film the wedding of Sian & Lee at Blackthorpe Barn this August. It was our first time producing a Blackthorpe Barn wedding video. The venue itself is located in the heart of Suffolk near Bury St Edmunds.
The day for us commenced at Blackthorpe House which is within the vicinity of Blackthorpe Barn itself. We arrived at around 10:00 in order to allow enough time to cover all of the essentials in the morning and to leave room for us to capture some shots before the wedding ceremony itself at St Mary’s Church in Bury St Edmunds. Blackthorpe House itself provides couples with an excellent choice when it comes to the morning preparations of the wedding – even more, couples can make use of Blackthorpe House as an option for family and friends to crash out at upon the night of the wedding – needless to say this must be booked.
Sian chose to have her hair and makeup station in the conservatory of the house which allowed for some lovely lighting. Final preparations took place in the main bedroom suite upstairs where Sian stepped into her dress.
After getting into her dress, we made our way to the car and headed into Bury St Edmunds for the wedding ceremony. This took place at St Mary’s Church, one of the largest parish churches in England. The church really is stunning and we’d recommend taking a visit should you be in the local area.
The ceremony commenced and included a lovely blend of two readings, hymns in addition to prayers. The vicar, Wendy was incredibly welcoming and made us all feel very comfortable. We hope to return to St Mary’s Church very soon. After around forty minutes the wedding ceremony came to a close and Sian and Lee were pronounced as man and wife. Shortly after this we made our way outside for the confetti shot.
We soon made our way back to Blackthorpe Barn and began capturing shots of the cocktail hour which included their guests having a drink or two in addition to sampling the canapes on offer. We also managed to capture some newlywed shots of both Sian & Lee alongside the fantastic photographer Andy Chambers who we have had the pleasure of working with before.
The time had come for some wedding speeches which signaled that the evening reception was soon to begin. Lee, his mother, his new father-in-law and two best men delivered speeches to us all. Once the speeches were finished we took the opportunity to capture some more newlywed shots outside the barn. After this we made our way back inside for the cake cutting and first dance.
A bouquet toss was conducted after the first dance by Sian which then signaled the start of the party. Many congratulations to both Lee and Sian on their fantastic wedding day. We wish you all the very best for the future and we hope to add another Blackthorpe Barn wedding video to our collection soon.
