Kieran and Ruth’s quaint, beautiful and autumnal Lains Barn wedding, with Carol Elizabeth Photography

Hello there lovelies! Today we have a classic English wedding full of bright florals to inspire autumn and winter brides. I love the vibrance of the flowers, and beautiful bride Ruth is just stunning, don’t you think?

We were at 4 different locations for Ruth and Kieran’s wedding, which offered lots of variety for their photos with some really amazing backdrops. I started at the rented house, which was very quirky with plenty of character. We then drove over to the church wedding ceremony in Abingdon, which is a lovely bright church, quite modern with plenty of space for all the guests. And a really lovely vicar, who was so helpful and accommodating to ensure we had plenty of lovely photos for Ruth and Kieran to remember their day.

On the way to the reception we stopped off at Barton House for a few wedding portraits. All I can say about this beautiful venue is wow! We walked around the grounds and spent a few minutes in different locations for photos of Ruth and Kieran. This gave them some time on their own to chat whilst I captured a few natural and informal photos in the lovely grounds, by the lake and on the bridge.

We then headed over to the Lains Barn wedding reception. This is one of my favourite venues, who doesn’t love a rustic barn! The staff are so friendly and helpful and the food is always perfect. We took a few photos in the grounds before joining the guests to enjoy the various lawn games on the lovely open space outside the barn.

As I’m a Lains Barn recommended supplier I often photograph weddings here, but they’re always so unique and enjoyable. The barn itself is a blank canvas, so the wedding couple can add their own touches to create the look and feel of their day. There’s plenty of outdoor space, and the barn itself is spacious and full of character. ~ Carol Elizabeth Photography
