An Historic Barn Venue in London

As wedding venues go, The Great Barn in Ruislip is impressive, with charm, history and a great location for London based couples. It's part of a medieval farm complex in West London dating back to the 13th century. It was still being used as a farm as recently as the 1930's, before being gifted to the Ruislip Village Trust and then the District Council, with a stipulation that it should only be used as a public hall. Following a Lottery funded renovation in 2007, it's now licensed to hold weddings, which brings us to 2016 when Sundeep and Matt celebrated their wedding with family and friends.

A Beard Trim Before The Wedding

But before I got to start photographing at the Great Barn, Ruislip, I met the grooms at Pall Mall barbers in Fitzrovia, London where they were both having their beards trimmed before the wedding ceremony. The basement was quite tight for space, but it made some great pictures and a nice start point for the wedding photography. The guys then moved on to their home to finish their preparations before heading over to The Great Barn where guests had started to arrive.

The Great Barn has some beautiful pockets of light and I explored these fully as the wedding guests arrived. It's a pretty big space - perfect for the kind of documentary wedding photography I specialise in. There was plenty to photograph with Sundeep's Indian family and friends giving me lots of colourful outfits to photograph.

Lucky Timing For A Rainbow

Like a lot of same sex wedding ceremonies, both grooms walked into the ceremony together. The civil ceremony was short and before long everyone had streamed outside into the Autumn sunshine for the start of the reception. The threatening clouds kept at bay for most of the drinks reception, with a shower starting just as everyone moved in for the wedding breakfast. Which was a bit lucky for me, as a rainbow briefly appeared just as we started some quick portraits. Usually that wouldn't excite me too much, but as the rainbow flag is the symbol for the LGBT movement, it felt right, and I was pleased to be able to get it into the portraits before it disappeared!

Speeches and a fabulous dance routine by Matt's family followed the wedding breakfast, before The Cassettes took to the stage and got everyone on the dance floor.
