Jaki and Joth – Hampshire Wedding Photographer
The Long Barn Wedding Day
Jaki and Josh chose The Long Barn in Shotters farm, Alton for their wedding venue. It is the most beautiful barn with some stunning fields surrounding it. An absolute dream for a wedding photographer to shoot at. Jaki spent the morning with her girls getting ready, listening to music and drinking bubbles. Whilst Joth and the boys were tweaking their ties and sorting out last minute touches to the barn. There may have been a cheeky drink in there too as they greeted guests arriving to the barn.
The sun was shining but there was a small threat of rain to come! Luckily, Jaki got over to the ceremony without getting caught in any rain. The sun shone through the barn as Jaki and Joth said their wedding vowels. Well, technically at this point they were already married! Like many couples during the pandemic, Jaki and Joth had decided to do their legal wedding earlier on and use this day and a huge celebration. They did however, do a mock up ceremony with their friend as a celebrant for their guests to witness.
The ceremony was beautiful and all the guests went into the drink reception. Unfortunately, this is when the heavens decided to open! So we had to hold off on the confetti throwing and outside canapés for now. Luckily, the shower didn’t last long and everyone could get outside and enjoy the sunshine!
The Long Barn Wedding Reception
Everyone sat down for some glorious food and more drinks at the long barn! At the end of the meal were the speeches, one from Jaki’s Dad, Joth and his best man. It also happened to be Joth’s birthday. So, his best man made sure there was a birthday shot ready for him! The party was the most important park of the day for this couple. They hired a fantastic band! And really wanted everyone to party and enjoy themselves. and they sure did that!! Just before leaving I noticed the light hitting the field near the barn. I couldn’t leave without getting some beautiful golden hour shots of this stunning couple! These are some of my favourite golden hour shots! One of my friends even has it has her background photo on her phone. (I edited Jaki and Joth out of it for her! haha)
Thank you to the wedding couple!
Thank you so much Jaki and Joth for having me there to capture your beautiful wedding day! I wish you all the happiness in your marriage together!
