Shustoke Farm Barns , although relatively new on the wedding scene, is fast becoming one of the top wedding venues in the West Midlands area and I am lucky enough to be playing wedding photographer here several times this season. The Barns are just east of Coleshill and about 20 minutes from the centres of Birmingham and Coventry. These wonderfully restored 18th-Century rustic red brick buildings have tall and dramatic inside spaces and surround a stunning courtyard. Very pleasing for me then, that I kicked off my 2015 wedding photography season here with the wonderful wedding of Lucy & Phil.
It seems an age ago when we had our very first meeting, but I knew having spent an hour discussing Lucy & Phils day and getting to know them that I was going to have an amazing time on their wedding day. I kicked off the day at their home in Erdington where the girls were busy preparing themselves with the help of the super talented Rachelle Grimes. I then headed over to the barns to catch up with the lads ready for the main event. Such an amazing day followed, every detail carefully planned in perfect harmony with the rustic surroundings, the place looked stunning. Lucy & Phil are a very special couple with amazing family & friends who welcomed me into the celebration, a day i will remember for a long time, thanks guys!
Ill let my wedding photography do the talking but if you are wondering what everyone is laughing at in the closing few images, please watch this hilarious pop video put together by Phil and the lads down in Bournemouth as a surprise for Lucy and to the delight of the wedding party..... nice touch lads.
