Beautiful Upwaltham Barns weddings

Welcome to my Upwaltham Barns page, home to some of the beautiful weddings I’ve shot there over the years.

Upwaltham Barns is a fabulous wedding venue on the South Downs and the combination of its beautiful location and first class service is a huge draw for awesome couples, couples that I love working with! I’m so excited to be a recommended supplier there because I get to visit regularly and help couples make the most of their wedding day. My approach is for couples to spend as much time as possible with their guests, whilst I shoot the candids, and when the time is right, shoot some groups and then make the most of those gorgeous views for some fun and relaxed portraits. In the spring and summer months the couple shoot takes place after dinner, weather permitting, which frees up more time to spend with your guests.

The barns are stunning, as are the breathtaking views across the fields and meadows, especially from up above on the hill. There is much to offer throughout the year and there are plenty of places to withdraw to if the weather turns. I spend a lot of time cycling and walking on the South Downs and I’m constantly inspired by the beautiful views and light. When I have the opportunity to shoot weddings on and around the South Downs, I put that inspiration to good use, creating beautiful and atmospheric images for my couples.

Emma and Ben – I was so excited to return to Upwaltham Barn for the second time this summer, this time to cover Emma’s and Ben’s lovely wedding day. Having started with a lovely bride’s preps at the Star and Garter Pub in East Dean, I met the boys at Uplwatham Barns and then spent a gloriously sunny day with them until after the first dance, ending with a swift sparkler tunnel. This day was lovely and here are a lovely set of images to set the scene at their Upwaltham Barn wedding.
