Lapstone Barn Wedding Photographer

Sometimes, everything just clicks in ways you could never have dreamed or hoped for. The entire experience of being Lucinda and Charlie’s Lapstone Barn wedding photographer was one of those times, hands down one of my top three wedding experiences of my entire career!

So how did that happen? Well, it started a year earlier when I photographed their engagement party at Queenwood Golf Course. But, their Lapstone Barn wedding was actually day three of a four day extravaganza!

It all kicked off on the Thursday with a small ceremony at Morden Park House in front of their closest family and friends. The next day we were off to the Cotswolds for a small private dinner with close family at Russell’s Of Broadway.

Then on Saturday it was the main event at Lapstone Barn. And the following morning, after they’d shaken off their hangovers, everyone gathered at Hillside Farms to enjoy artisan coffees, Bloody Marys, burgers, and crepes from a selection of food vans, relaxing in a huge marquee as the sun crept across the sky on this beautiful autumn weekend.

Reader, I’m not ashamed to say that by the end of all this I was a blubbering wreck saying goodbye! You don’t spend so much time with so many people and not make connections and friendships and feel like part of it – at least, not the way that I shoot weddings…

A lot of people and suppliers pulled together to make this happen and I want to give a special mention to a few:

  • Jeni Amey of Vanilla Rose Weddings – Jeni was Lucinda and Charlie’s wedding planner and I genuinely cannot say enough wonderful things about her. you’ll see her about halfway through as she revealed the dressed dining room at Lapstone Barn to Lucinda and Charlie, and Lucinda’s reaction says it all.
  • Ryan from Rolling Film for being an absolute joy to work alongside. I’ve worked with a few videographers in my time, and I clicked with Ryan from the first moment we met, at Lucinda’s bridal prep cottage. You’ll find a snap of him just before the first dance, helping me test my lighting.
  • And finally HUGE special mention to The Function Band for absolutely blowing everyone’s socks off with a fantastic pre-dessert performance that had everyone literally dancing on the tables, not to mention keeping the dancefloor fuller for longer than I’ve EVER seen at a wedding.

The Story of Lucinda & Charlie’s Lapstone Barn Wedding

But you’re not here to read about their wedding, you want to see how wonderful it looked! So here’s 100 or so of my favourite photos from their Lapstone Barn wedding, starting with prep in the morning through to the party after the first dance.

We’re starting at The Fish Hotel, tucked away in amongst the rolling Cotswold hills, where Charlie was having breakfast with his boys…
