Evening Wedding Photography

Susannah and Daniel booked us for Evening Wedding Photography when they were married at the popular Crabbs Barn earlier in the year.

When we arrived at Crabbs Barn, Susannah was almost ready and we had enough time to take a few pictures of her and her family. The weather was fine to take some pictures outside the Bridal Room. The sun going down was a bonus and provided a nice setting. Daniel had a few pictures taken before going in to the Barn for the Ceremony.

Following the Ceremony for a few minutes we took Susannah and Daniel off for a few pictures whilst the Guests were served drinks. Susannah and Daniel had time to mingle with their Guests for a short time afterwards.

In the Barn we took a few requested family pictures. Joshua, Susannah and Daniel’s eighteen month old son had a few pictures as well. Before everyone had something to eat we all went outside where the Guests threw confetti over Susannah and Daniel.Evening Wedding PhotographyCrabbs Barn Wedding Photographer A couple of informal Speeches took place later. The Band had set up and after the cutting of the cake Susannah took to the dance floor for their First Dance. Our final pictures of the evening were a little later and after that we said our goodbyes. A lovely couple and a nice relaxed Wedding.
