Springtime Almonry Barn Wedding Photography
Charlotte & Adam | Almonry Barn, Somerset
“We feel incredibly lucky having been able to book Simon to capture our wedding! I knew that he was the right photographer for us after seeing his photos and reading about how he works. Our photos are STUNNING, we are over the moon with them!!
They are a true representation of us as a couple because he allowed us to be ourselves. One of my favourite moments of the day was when he drove us away from the venue for twenty minutes. We were lucky enough to have that ‘golden hour light’ and the photos are just dreamy! It was fun, natural and at times we completely forgot he was there.
Simon is attentive, thoughtful, organised and rediculously talented! He captured all the beautiful moments with our guests we weren’t able to see during the day. He blended in and was an absolute pleasure to have there. He even went that extra mile when the wedding party forgot their buttonholes and took them to the venue for us! (Also giving me advice about my rings for the ceremony) it’s all the little things… Simon, thank you! When we look at those photos we remember exactly how we felt in that moment and that, is a gift!”
1. TELL US MORE ABOUT YOU:
I work as Cabin Manager and Crew Training Instructor, Adam is a Building Contractor. We love making amazing memories and being happy, what more could you ask for?! Our spare time usually involves being outside with our loveable cockapoo, Winston. Also planning our next adventure, getaway or ski trip.
2. THE PROPOSAL: WHAT’S THE STORY?
The proposal was in Port Douglas, Australia. We took an evening stroll down to the end of a boardwalk one evening where it overlooked a beautiful view of the ocean. He pulled out his wallet, gave me a penny and told me to make a wish. When it was his turn he took a ring and got down on one knee.
3. WHAT MADE THE ALMONRY BARN THE PERFECT VENUE CHOICE FOR YOU?
We were looking for a romantic venue that was tucked away in the countryside. We didnʼt want anything too big so we could always see our family and friends around us. We fell in love with the barns rustic elegance and history. We pictured ourselves saying our vows there so we knew it was the one.
4. WHY DID YOU CHOOSE SIMON BIFFEN TO PHOTOGRAPH YOUR WEDDING?
Because heʼs amazing! His photos look relaxed and capture all the beautiful moments naturally. He was incredible on the day and just felt like one of the guests. Our photo shoot was so fun and involved absolutely no posing! We were just ourselves, whilst he worked his magic… We are obsessed with our photos.
5. WHAT KIND OF EXPERIENCE DID YOU WANT FOR YOUR GUESTS?
We imagined a relaxed and informal day, we wanted our guests to enjoy the venue and have a great party in the evening!
6. WHAT WERE THE MOST MEMORABLE MOMENTS FROM YOUR DAY?
So many to choose from, but one of our favourite moments was in the evening when Simon drove us to where we overlooked the venue and watched the sun set. We felt completely alone in that moment, we had a chance to breathe and take in what an amazing day it had been.
7. ANY TIPS FOR FUTURE COUPLES PLANNING THEIR WEDDING?
Stick to what you envisioned and donʼt get too caught up in the small details. Take some time out of your day for the two of you to stop and take it all in. Youʼve done all the hard work and planning, make sure you enjoy your day even if some details donʼt go to plan.
