Penny Square Barn wedding photographer

The bride spends time at her fathers grave at the church of St. Mary the virgin Batcombe

Hi, I’m Warren a Penny Square Barn wedding photographer working in a documentary style, this means that I will spend the whole day with you from getting ready in the morning right through to the last dance. I focus on capturing the special moments and the many emotions of the day with only a few posed shots. As you can see below I like to work creatively with light to capture the essence of your day, all the laughter and fun, the beautiful details as well as the intimate moments.

Penny Square Barn wedding

What a place Penny square barn is to have a wedding reception! It is located in such a beautiful part of Somerset, the perfect setting for Bee and Danny’s wedding. The day itself was really special and clearly took a lot of planning, this wedding had the lot! I photographed Bee and her bridesmaids as they spent most of the morning getting ready at her mother’s house in Somerset then I went to see Danny and the boys getting ready in an old farm where they were staying for the weekend.

The ceremony was held in the beautiful grounds of St. Mary the Virgin Church at Batcombe and what an entrance Bee got, as she entered the church and walk down the aisle with her mother the whole wedding congregation clapped and cheered! After the ceremony, Bee left the church and went across to her father’s grave with her new husband, knelt down and spent a minute together on their own, it was a special moment from the day and I feel privileged to have captured it. From the church at Batcombe everybody headed to Penny Square Barn for the wedding reception, it was my first time at the barn and it has such a beautiful vibe, a really cool place to photograph a wedding.

The drinks reception on the field in front of the marquee has the most splendid view of the Somerset hills, it was also perfect weather so everybody stayed outside, drank champagne, ate canapes, and played games. Once the speeches were over, everybody made their way to an open fire pit next to the barn, the DJ began her set and everybody started the party. A poem was read before everybody entered the barn and from there on it was a full 3 hour set with Danny’s brother’s band, even the bride and groom climbed on stage for a song!

Here are some of my favourite photographs from the day….
