In September, Emily and Jed held their wedding at the absolutely stunning Barn at Willerby. One of the more unique wedding barns in the area. On a day like theirs, it was a classic September wedding day, one of the best times of year to get married. I guess this is why its one of the more popular months for weddings!

Relaxed venue full of natural light

When I arrived on that September morning, I thought I’d got the wrong place as the bride Emily was so calm! This is something you want to see as a photographer, for their sake and for relaxed photos! Getting ready with her childhood friends and family, I did wonder how many times they’d gotten ready together in a mirror over the years when they were both putting on their makeup together for a night out? Who would have known when they were younger, they would have been doing that same thing on Emily’s big day?!

Jed was nervous when I arrived at the Barns but had no need to worry as the ceremony and the whole day went to plan. Emily was so early she had to wait around the corner as she was there before all the guests! This is a top tip for the venue, since it has a wrap around drive at the front you can just park out the way, giving that special surprise. We whizzed through the group shots as everyone was there with their best smiles and as for confetti among the fairy lights…I almost lost Emily and Jed in it!

With so many friends there on the evening it was an incredible party and everyone was loving the camera. I know I say it a lot, but there’s been so many lovely wedding parties this summer!

A classic barn wedding venue

Willerby Barn offers a range of options, with three large sections that feel like individual rooms, separated by curtains. The main room is where you have your wedding breakfast and get your indoor drinks, the middle is for live music and DJ – the dance floor, and finally the third section is the ceremony room. Since there are beautiful large windows and bi-fold doors it almost feels like an outdoor wedding. The perfect blank canvas for your wedding day. Emily and Jed’s wedding was no exception, and I can’t wait to be back here agin soon!
