Gildings Barn Wedding
Rowan and Pete’s Gildings Barn Wedding defied the elements and proved that a little, well actually a lot of rain won’t spoil your day. It was August Bank holiday weekend so the weather could have gone one of two ways; glorious sun or torrential rain, and unfortunately the latter prevailed. Rowan & Pete had planned for a very outdoor summer wedding, but thankfully they picked a venue that was as stunning on the inside as it was out and the day was incredible regardless. Rowan and Pete being from Scotland were used to cold and wet conditions and I think this helped them embrace the bad weather. They were total legends, they didn’t fret for a second about heading out into the rain for photos. It seemed to be their luck with weather, as on their engagement shoot we got snow!
The day started with bridal prep at a very unique location, an amazing log cabin tucked away on a farm in the Surrey countryside on it’s own private island, how cool! Rowan was super relaxed, there was lots of laughter and the excitement for the day ahead. She looked gorgeous in her elegant dress accompanied by her bridesmaids in dark royal blue.
Waiting at the venue was the groom Pete with his best lady by his side. And with the couple being Scots there was plenty of tartan on show, which always looks fab. The barn was twinkling inside and the wonderful celebrant Jenny Knight was primed ready for the ceremony.
Rowan arrived in style in her dad’s (slightly leaky) convertible with a huge smile on her face. The ceremony told a wonderful story of the couple and was filled with emotion and laughter throughout. And that spirit continued as the celebrations got into full swing. The rain didn’t ease up at any point but the atmosphere inside the rustic barn was so electric that no-one even noticed. And to get the party started there was a five piece folk band to get everyone up on their feet dancing.
The day may have been grey but this wedding was full of colour and joy. Rowan and Pete were total superstars and I loved photographing their wedding!
