Swallows Nest Barn Wedding

Swallows Nest Barn is one of those venues you just fall in love with at first site, you get your first glimpse from a far as you drive through the stunning countryside and see it from the top of the hill. What made our day there even more incredible was arriving to see the beaming face of Danielle, possibly THE most excited bride ever!

Danielle and James’ wedding day took what felt like years and years to finally arrive, thank you covid smovid, but the perks, we had more time to get to know them in the run up and their wedding day was that bit more magical. All the planning and all the waiting was worth it.

We started our day with the boys at their nearby Airbnb, James was a tad nervous as the excitement of his wedding day was bubbling. A mixture of support from his boys and some good whiskey saw him through the nerves. I grabbed some video while Simon was on photos.

On arrival at Swallows Nest Barn I was welcomed with the biggest hug ever from Danielle, it was amazing to finally be with her and be a part of their wedding day. The morning at bride prep was fun fuelled as so many of Danielle’s friends were there getting ready with her.

The ceremony, oh my, the ceremony, what a soppy, cute, giggly pair these two are. We had so many tears and so many smiles, it was a pleasure to capture.

The drinks reception in the wonderful gardens at Swallows Nest Barn meant it was time for games, cocktails, ice cream, mingling and some photos with us. We whisked Danielle and James off to the woods and into the field to create some EPIC portraits.  Oh and of course we devoured some ice cream on route.

Dinner and the speeches were up next, Danielle’s mum dropped a recording of her singing (quite badly) as a toddler, well done mum, and James pulled out a sentimental wholly hat, both got great reactions from Danielle. We do bloody love an emotive speech!

Everyone rocked the dancefloor into the night and some point we sloped off and collapsed into bed, exhausted but happy!

We loved the relaxed and fun vibe of Danielle and James’ day at Swallows Nest Barn, it matched our style perfectly and we were able to document so many great moments, all the happiness, all the emotions and all the fun!

Thank you Danielle and James for having us and giving us the chance to get to know you both.
