Haybales Barn Wedding Photographer

ring exchange during wedding



I have known Emma & Jamie for a few years now as they were one of the unfortunate couples who had no choice but to postpone due to the 2020 covid outbreak. In that time however Emma was clever enough to open up her very own wedding venue of her dreams – Haybales Barn, in Leicester. Emma and Jamie have also become very good friends, strong and supportive with every meeting we have had in the run up to their wedding. 

On the day however, it was so much fun and enjoyable all round! Starting with Emma at the legendary luxury accommodation that is the lodge at Haybales, surrounded by some incredible suppliers the morning went in a flash. With the very talented Lucy Mcdonald applying make up for all the bridal party, complimented by having La Femme Belle on the hair, creating beautiful up do’s for everyone! 

The super incredibly talented Hollie from Hollie Fox Flowers on the florals, suppling the most gorgeous bouquets, button holes and floral arrangements around the church and tipi tent. The ceremony itself was very short and simple with one reading once emma had arrived with her dad, full of emotion and anticipation to see Jamie and finally marry the love of her life. All of their children were very eagerly watching on from prime positions in the crowd.

Following the ceremony, Emma took us off to a very special private lane where she and Jamie posed for portraits before heading back to Haybales to be welcomed by their guests and get on with the most important part of the day….. the food! The stunning food was cooked by the delicious Keythorpe Providing an amazing mixture of meat and veggies which we could simply not get enough of!

With a super chilled and relaxed vibe for the day Emma had chosen to have no formal group images and allowed me to capture everything in the moment as the day unfolded, along with no cake cutting ceremony or first dance.

Emma topped off her day after I had left with a stunning fireworks display by the amazing guys at Angel Fireworks.
