Lains Barn Wedding Photographer // Esther & Mark

Oxfordshire Wedding at Lains Barn, Wantage


It was a huge pleasure to photograph Esther and Mark’s wedding in August. They married at their family church in Reading and then went on to Lains Barn in Wantage to continue the celebrations.

I think that it may have been one of the happiest weddings that I have been a part of, they literally didn’t stop smiling all day! Surrounded by friends and family, the feeling of love for the happy couple was tangible.

I started the day with Esther and her girls, capturing them while they got ready at the family home. Esther looked absolutely stunning in her dress from Confetti Bridal Centre in Wokingham. My super second photographer Berni captured Mark and his boys preparing for the day before travelling with them to the Church.

It was a moving ceremony at their family Church in Reading, followed by a confetti exit before leaving for their wedding reception at Lains Barn in Wantage.

Surrounded by rolling Cotswold countryside, we made the most of the beautiful backdrop by visiting a local wheat field for their couples portraits. The barn itself was filled with fairy lights and foliage, creating a gorgeously rustic setting for their wedding breakfast.

The fun continued into the evening with lots of dancing to music provided by The Sessions, the perfect way to end the day.

A huge congratulations to Mark and Esther on becoming Husband and Wife, and thank you for inviting me to be a part of your beautiful wedding day.
