Bridge House Barn Wedding Photography in Leicestershire

Tipi weddings are becoming a big trend within the UK wedding industry especially for couples who want to escape from formalities and are planning their wedding in a very laid back relaxed natural way,

Sam and Jake’s wedding was exactly like this.

Their Bridge House Barn Wedding venue is simply amazing, down-to-earth, laid-back day full of fun and laughter!  Sam and Jake didn’t want to go with a formal conventional day with a standard three-course wedding breakfast and cutting the wedding cake. Instead of that, they had afternoon tea, pizzas, pancakes, limoncello shots (Jake comes from an Italian family), roasted marshmallows, and loads of lovely with their wedding guests. I really loved how they decorated Bridge house barn and replaced their standard table plan with a shot of limoncello on the entry for every one of their guests with a name and table number tag sitting on the top. What a great start to the wedding reception, especially if it’s a laid-back wedding in a Tipi at Bridge house barn. The whole day had a very relaxed feel almost like a big family party with people scattered all around the lovely surroundings of Bridge House Barn’s Tipi’s, celebrating Sam and Jake’s big day. My documentary wedding photography style allows me to get all those precious natural moments in a very uninvaded relaxed way.

How do I approach wedding photography at Bridge House Barn?

As you may know, as a wedding photographer I am fond of simplicity and love to put capture my couples within a large landscape. Bridge House Barn is surrounded by loads of lovely fields that are full of potential for creating some striking wedding photos. Early morning, on the way to meet the bride with her bridesmaids, I have noticed a freshly harvested wheat field with some lovely hay bails still left over which gave me an idea for some after sunset couples portraits photographs. Although we missed the sunset, there was still plenty of lovely colours in the sky to create some lovely images.  Sam and Jake really appreciated a bit of time on their own away from their wedding guests, absorbing all the precious moments of their amazing wedding day.

Once we returned back to Bridge House Barn, they joined their wedding guests who were all gathered outside enjoying delicious al-fresco handmade pizzas and pancakes. It was such an amazing evening where everybody found their perfect place. It was like a magic triangle; pizza oven – pancake trailer – and Tipi with a cosy fire pit inside. All of this, sitting right next to the canal lit by lovely festoon lights … simply perfect wedding setup! After a while guests started to trickle away finding their cozy place inside the Bridge House Barn tipi’s, gathering around the fire and roasting marshmallows. It was the time for Sam and Jake’s first dance as a husband and wife. I can honestly say that they got their party started in a big style with an elegant first dance initially turning into a crazy party afterward. Needless to say Sam and Jake with wedding guests really know how to party !!! And that’s the way I like it, my wedding photography doesn’t only captures all the romantic moments during the wedding day, through my images I am telling the story of the entire day. From the bride and bridesmaids’ preparations all the way to the crazy boogie on the dancefloor.

The story of Sam and Jake at one of loveliest, Leicestershire Tipi Wedding venues

Tell us how you first met?

​Jake and I went to College together and Jake was one of the older boys. Although we knew of each other at college we’d never really spoken. Years later Jake messaged me, on Facebook of all things! Normally I’d have ignored that style of the message but because i recognised him i replied and asked him how many girls he’d sent his message to 😉. A drunken first date drinking Drumstick Lolly Cocktails and 6 years later the rest is history as they say.

Tell us about your engagement, how did Jake proposed?

I had a feeling Jake was going to propose to me in the year that he did, however, I had no idea when he was going to do it or when he had purchased the ring!
We were on a trip to Berlin with our friends and right from the off Jake was being weird, I actually thought he was being a little rude to our friends! (I later learned this was the stress of getting the ring through airport security without me finding out!.)
On arrival to our hotel room and away from our friends I asked Jake what was up which resulted in an argument, in which he then had to propose then and there on the spot as I wouldn’t let it drop haha. It definitely took me by surprise and Jake was very sweaty and nervous! We laughed in shock in our hotel room for around 30 minutes and then joined our friends for a celebratory Champagne dinner. Our friends had known the whole time, so just me that was out of the loop.

If you feel comfortable, share with us something silly or quirky the other person does.

We always joke that Jake is ‘classic’ and I’m ‘cool.’ We decided to reflect this in our wedding by having surprise banners made with 5 things we loved about each other. We didn’t see the banners until we sat down for our afternoon tea, which was a great surprise moment. Of course, we referenced the classic and cool on the banners 🙂.

Why have you chosen Bridge House Barn to be your wedding venue?

We had chosen Bridge House before we were even engaged. The location was very close to our first house and we often drove past and could see the tipis and wedding parties going on and knew that we loved it. We didn’t even consider other venues once we were engaged.

What inspired your wedding décor or theme of your wedding?

Our theme was simply ‘things we love.’ So Pizza, cocktails, afternoon tea, and music!

What was the best part of your wedding day?

Marrying my husband

What’s one thing you wish you would have known earlier in regards to your wedding planning at Bridge House Tipi Wedding venue?

As an Event Manager, most people assume I would have loved planning our wedding but in fact for me the opposite was true. I just wanted to get to the day and get the ‘to-do list’ out of the way. I work best under pressure so everything was organized and booked last minute even though e knew right from the start what we wanted. Jake was much more organised and planned than me! (including the dress which my best friend had to force me to look for!) So I’m probably not the best person to ask for advice from.
A tip to marquee/ Tipi weddings though just bear in mind that you are booking an empty shell and this type of wedding will involve sourcing many different suppliers for all your needs (evening including linen and furniture in some cases.)

Could you give 1 or 2 most important pieces of advice for all the brides and grooms who are planning their wedding at Bridge House Barn?

If you are struggling with your guest list there is a one really simple way to decide. Ask yourselves ‘is this person really happy for us as a couple’ if the answer is no, it’s simple they don’t make the invite list!

Don’t feel the need to follow traditions if they don’t reflect you as a couple. We didn’t want to cut the cake so we didn’t (we had macaroon tower instead, so no cutting required!) I didn’t want a floral bouquet so there was no throwing of the bouquet (If I had thrown my bouquet I would have knocked somebody out haha), we didn’t want wine on the tables as we don’t drink wine so we had teapot cocktails instead. Every detail in our day reflected us.

Guests remember the food!! The one thing that gets mentioned time and time again about our wedding is how much the guests enjoyed the food, so make sure you attend tastings and that your food is good. But only choose a menu of food you like, not what your guests like!

What was the most important factor in choosing your wedding photographer and why have you chosen Latzo to capture your wedding day at Bridge House Barn?

Latzo came highly recommended by another photographer and I instantly recognised that his work was the style of photos we were looking for. Contemporary, quirky, covert, and atmospheric. One of the specific reasons we chose Latzo is that he has some great mean and moody Black and White shots in his portfolio, and as we fully expected it to rain (outdoor wedding in the UK summertime!) we wanted to know we’d still love our pictures even in the rain. Instagram was a big deciding factor for us as we could see a wide variety of Latzo’s work. Latzo was completely unobtrusive yet really friendly on the day. Our guests loved him and still sometimes mention him and to be honest we viewed him as one of our guests by the end of the day.
