A few thoughts on being a Gate Street Barn Wedding Photographer
Gate Street Barn. What can I say? I’m proud to be a Gate Street Barn Wedding Photographer. First of all, its one of the most enchanting wedding venues you will find in Surrey, in one of Surrey’s most idyllic settings. Also, it’s an absolute favourite place of mine being expertly run in such a way that, while you’re there, the whole world revolves around you and your wedding. From the large and lavish to the smaller, more intimate events, every wedding I’ve photographed at Gate Street Barn has been a true delight.
Do get yourself down there to look around and I guarantee that you’ll pick up on this feeling in no time.
From a Surrey wedding photographer’s point of view it has everything. Rustic? Check. Stylish? Absolutely. Lots of lovely cows? Definitely!
Time? Everything is close and within reach – it’s easy for me to photograph you and your guests with a variety of diverse backdrops – loads of gorgeous pictures and then you’re back hanging out with your guests before they’ve had the time to realise where they are. As it happens, we are located in Godalming which is just around the corner from Gate Street. It all ‘just works’…
I love it. Can you tell?
The team that run Gate Street Barn are incredible. I’m sure it’s run like a tight ship – everything is smooth and efficient, and as friendly and relaxed as you get. It’s always somehow a really great balance of both an intense and a smooth atmosphere. I notice it every time. They just know weddings. They know how much care a wedding needs, and they know that your wedding has its own natural course, and it all works beautifully.
I’ve photographed weddings there in the rain, and it shines. I’ve been there in the blazing Summer Sun and it’s soaked in class.
We want to photograph your Gate Street Barn Wedding
Every couple that ties the knot at Gate Street Barn knows. They know that there is magic, and they know that there is intensity, and they know that there is a unique closeness and sparkle. It takes a certain type of vision to pick up on this stuff, and when you know, you know. That’s how we know that we have to be so much more than your wedding photographers. We have to fit in with your people, and commit to a different kind of ride. It’s just a more personal and familial approach that we know, more often than not, Gate Street Barn couples thrive on.
We’re in. We’re on board. It’s all about making connections in big and small ways, but making the right connections. It happens that people who get married and have their big party at Gate Street Barn are usually, perfectly, just the right fit for our kind of approach. We get into the action, we get close to people, and we discover stories. We get the best photographs this way. It can be exhausting, but it works. We’ll push ourselves to make your wedding photographs sing your song. Your style – personalised to you – we’ve been doing this for a long time, and we know how to use the venue to it’s full potential. It’s about timings and experience, sure, but it’s also about who you are and what you want, and how much of that we can turn into magic. It turns out, quite a lot.
There’s nothing that this venue can’t do and it does it so well. There’s a reason why Gate Street Barn is one of the most sought after Wedding Venues in Surrey – it’s because they’re just better at it than anyone else!
