We first met Matthew and Philippa at a wedding fair at Newcastle Racecourse back in 2018. They were looking for a photographer who would offer them something different while fitting into their relaxed ideas for the day.
They chose Eden Barn in Kirkby Stephen as the location for their big day. We’d never photographed their before as the venue as both in its infancy and over towards the lake district, but Matthew and Philippa sold the venue to us and after a great chat, they felt we were the photographers who could capture their big day.
Everything was in relative close proximity. Philippa was getting herself ready in a cottage not too far away and literally in the opposite direction of the venue, Matthew and his groomsmen were getting ready in a pub/hotel/venue nearby.
We were really excited for their big day as it’s always good for us to photograph at a new venue. It’s keeps things fresh and allows us to get creative. Here’s how it all unfolded…
Where the wedding name came from:
The name was chosen because of the venue but also the sign outside of the cottage where Philippa got ready.
