Owen House Barn Wedding Photography.
This is the amazing wedding of Dan and Sarah! It was my first time shooting Owen House Wedding Barn wedding photography and I loved it! Thank you to all the staff for making me feel so welcome! I really hope to be back at this beautiful wedding venue very soon! Both Sarah and Dav got ready at the venue. Sarah was in The Beauty Shed. This is a part of the venue that is tucked away for the bride and her party too relax and enjoy their preparations. Dav was across the courtyard with his groomsmen in the ‘Baaber Shed which also has a rustic feel for your inner hipster!
When I’m shooting at a venue for the first time, I do my best to try to avoid the “standard” shots that have already been done there. I am always looking for images that emerge before me. I love the challenge of working with the quality and direction of the light available and then shooting artistic rather than traditional or ordinary wedding photographs. This helps me create images that are atmospheric and emotive. Conveying what the wedding felt like as much as what it looked like.
This is what separates me from other wedding photographers. My work resonates with those who recognise and apprecitae the art of wedding photography. They don’t want to spend their day standing around posing for boring set ups. They do want beautiful, natural and emotioonal images that tell their story and they trust me to create them.
Owen House Barn – The Perfect Setting.
If you’re looking for a rustic/ Bo-Ho setting which you can really make your own, then Owen House Wedding Barn could be your ideal venue. This has to be one of the most unique barn style wedding venues in the North West. It is surrounded by rolling Cheshire countryside and feels totally off the beaten track. Sarah and Dav embraced all the venue had to offer and Owen House Barn was certainly the perfect fit for them! The team at the venue were really superb and were always looking for ways to make the couple and guests feel at home. It is a family run venue and that homely feeling really comes through. Owen House is a unique wedding experience!
Gorgeous Barn Spaces and The Shooting Gallery!
Owen House Barn comprises three contemporary barns and a stunning photographic studio space called The Shooting Gallery, more abut this shortly! This exclusive wedding venue offers the ultimate flexibility when it comes to spaces for your ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening reception. Owen House Barn also has an outdoor license and this degree of versatility means you can really make it your own for the day.In addition, there is the outdoor patio where you can join your guests while you soak in the spectacular views of the Cheshire countryside. There is also a brilliant space called The Break Out Room allowing guests a quieter area to relax in.
Then we have the Shooting Gallery! This is an incredible space for the exclusive use of the couple and their photographer. It is separate from the other barns and guests don’t have access. But they can watch a live feed of your portrait shoot on a monitor in the main barn! Here’s the low down from their website:
“We know that images are such an important momento of your dream day, so we have a relaxing area for our couples to escape for a little bit of peace and quiet with their photogrpaher.
Our shooting gallery is a spacious barn which is well lit with bioth natural and artifical light. We have created a series of interesting backdrops including starcloths, rustic doors, plants and light and dark wodden panelling.
There are also lots of props like wooden step ladders, crates and churns which you are free to use.”
Now, spending ages with the bride and groom shooting lots of posed photogaphs is not my thing at all! However, it’s such a great space, Sarah and Dav wanted to make the most of it, as did I! Actually, we got lots of brilliant images in around 20 mins or so. Sarah and Dav then had a little extra time to rehearse their first dace routine one more time!
