CHAUCER BARN WEDDING – RACHEL AND TOM – NORFOLK WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
On Saturday I was back at beautiful, tranquil Chaucer Barn in a very rural corner of North Norfolk for the wedding of Rachel and Tom. Having enjoyed an ‘engagement shoot’ with Tom and Rachel, and knowing the sort of wedding that Chaucer Barn attracts, I was really looking forward to a chilled and informal wedding day in stunning surroundings; as you’ll hopefully feel from the small selection of images below, that’s exactly what I got.
Rachel and Tom are the most laid back and friendly couple you could ever hope to meet and Saturday morning has to have been one of the most calm and organised mornings of preparation that I’ve been fortunate enough to witness. Everything ran on rails and Rachel, and indeed everyone, was as relaxed as it is possible to be on a wedding morning. One of my favourite spots for a ceremony, the meadow at Chaucer Barn, was again the scene for the marriage vows, returning to the barn for the final legal formalities. An afternoon of garden games under increasingly threatening skies followed but the rain held off until the wedding breakfast and made me extremely thankful that Rachel and Tom allowed me a few minutes with them for some portraits ahead of the scheduled evening slot – had we waited it would have been the umbrella shots only!
The evening was enjoyed to the sounds of the brilliant and completely acoustic ‘Wandering Hands‘. Chaucer Barn is a relatively small venue and the acoustic band option made huge sense, able to play more than loud enough to be enjoyed throughout the barn but without fear of waking the neighbours!
Before I left, I invited Rachel and Tom to step out under the gazebo that had been decked out in a huge number of fairy lights by their friends. The place looked amazing and demanded to be used for a photograph to record the memory. So, below, a small selection from another stunning Chaucer Barn wedding day below.
Massive congratulations to Tom and Rachel, their families and friends for realising their dream wedding day.
