Gate St Barn wedding photography – Alex & Paul

Gate St Barn

Wedding Photography at Gate St Barn

Every wedding ceremony should start with some laughter. At Gate St Barn last week, Alex and Paul’s wedding ceremony did just that. Beginning the ceremony, the registrar talked about Paul and not Alexandra, but Alexander! 😮  Alex turned towards Paul, touched his hand and whispered that there was ‘something she had forgotten to mention…”. You can see this moment below. It got a big laugh. Weddings should always have lots of laughter, this one certainly did.

A late autumn wedding, the day starts at Great Tangley Manor, just down the road from Gate St Barn, in Wonersh. Here, Alex got ready with family and friends, before the short drive down to the Barn. The heavy rain of the morning (and my dog and I know all about this at 7 am) had moved on, but the day stayed cloudy and dull. The ceremony started at 2 pm, in a very warm barn. ( I was shooting at the front, leaning on a very warm radiator….) The very capable master of ceremonies, Sam, a Gurkha officer, kicked it off and worked hard all day to keep things running smoothly. Some military efficiency in action! A Kukri on hand to cut the wedding cake too.

A slight hiccup at the start of the ceremony

As the young ringbearer dropped the wedding rings as he set off down the aisle. By the end of the aisle, walking down past everyone looking his way, it all got a bit emotional for him. Alex’s sister, Michelle, was in tears (of happiness) too.

Alex and Paul wed, it was drinks outside – after a quick confetti run. Bit by bit the numbers outside dipped, as people drifted into the Pheasantry – very warm with its log burner. Not that it was cold outside for the time of year really. The main barn was turned around, the guests then took their seats as Alex and Paul waited outside the barn doors, eavesdropping, before entering to applause. Speeches followed the meal and always great to see the bride speak too – this should happen more, it’s 2015 after all!

On to the first dance, the first 1st dance, as there were two! It was the 44th wedding anniversary that day for Alex’s parents – so they took to the floor too.
