Chris & Gillian's Wedding @ The Old Barn, South Causey Inn in Durham

 

{Mark} Chris & Gillian’s was one, that I thougt I knew what to expect, then you get there and all the planning goes out the window… but in a good way.

I hadn’t met this couple before the wedding day, as Lisa had been there port of call before the big day. But, I did know the venue well, or so I thought. I’d photographed 3 or 4 weddings there over the years as well as been for food and always loved it. So I parked up and headed for the reception. At this point the staff told me the wedding was at “The Old Barn”. What Old Barn? At this point I was introduced to the South Causey’s new venue. It’s brand new, self contained, wonderfully styled and completely different to the main pub. The owners are doing a great job at slowly developing the site. They have little cottage units now for guest to stay in and have there own mobile photo booth.

 {Mark} Chris & his brother met me as I was finishing some location/storytelling images so we used the quiet time to get some of the two of them and then as if by magic the rest of the lads & chris family arrived with perfect timing. I didnt need to chase around finding everyone. Bonus!

{Mark} The Old Barn has a wonderful, shabby chic style without it trying too hard. But it is dark with no naural light which makes it really cosy and intimate but a alot tougher for a photographer.170707_baker_5092.jpg

{Mark} The main room is also beautiful and a great size but a challenge for Lisa & I. It’s dramatic with wood beams and what looks like a tree growing through out the roof. The top table is spot lit and backed with mirrors. Imagine trying to get a balanced exposure. Of course, muggins also didn’t bring the tripod because I thought we were in the bright naturally lite main pubs function room.

{Mark} It may have not have turned out as planned but the combination of a new venue and a fun family & couple really made it a wedding day to remember. We massively over shot and post editing was long winded but it was worth it. We hope you liked this small selection of photos from the wedding.
