The Great Barn
Located in the heart of Devon’s breathtakingly beautiful countryside but just 8 miles from Exeter, you can find the Great Barn, a truly perfect and contemporary wedding venue. I’m really fortunate be one of the few hand picked suppliers that The Great Barn recommend to all their clients, which is a true privilege, it also means I get to visit this exquisite venue on a regular basis.
I adore this venue, Emma and John have exceptional taste and a fine eye for detail. The lighting in the Barn itself is something I especially love, John once directed commercials so really knows his stuff! The lighting rig in the barn provides a gorgeous ambiance for those all important ceremony and evening reception photographs, and the exceptionally well maintained courtyard, cottages and the secret walled garden give you the perfect backdrop for the rest of your photographs.
Aside from the wow factor of the interior of the barn, it is totally exclusive and private and surrounded by 120 acres of idyllic Devon countryside. Once the courtyard gates are shut the only people you will see, are those you have chosen to have with you on your special day.
When photographing weddings at The Great Barn, I like to arrive during the morning preparations, usually couples are getting ready in one of the two cottages located on site. The cottages are light, bright and airy and give natural and flattering light for photographs. I don’t like to be too intrusive during your wedding, and the beauty of having everything under one roof (such as here), is that I can go between the cottages, ceremony room, kitchen etc, and capture the entire atmosphere before the celebrations really start! I follow this approach as the day unfolds, giving you an authentic narrative in your final collection of images to look back through again and again.
It would be a pleasure to be your photographer for this beautiful Devon wedding venue, if you’d like to check my availability then you can do so here.
