Hazel Gap Barn Wedding Photographer

When Rachael and Harry asked me to be their Hazel Gap Barn wedding photographer, I was excited to hear all about their plans. I love shooting at new venues across the country and at the time, this was one of Nottinghamshire’s newest. The Cripps & Co team have done a cracking job of this place.

When I met Rach & Harry in person, we got on like several houses on fire, and I knew we’d have a fab day together at Hazel Gap. They’re so light-hearted with great senses of humour. A perfect match for each other, and for this wedding photographer! In the words of A-Team’s Hannibal…I love it when a plan comes together!

Bridal Preparations in Edwinstowe, Nottinghamshire

I’ve said it before, and I’ll probably say it again, but I love the morning’s wedding preparations! So much energy and excitement to it! For her prep, Rach had hired out the Robin Hood Holiday Cottage in Edwinstowe. A great little place where her and her bridesmaids spent the night before, and gave them all plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the morning before the wedding.

Barn Wedding Venue in Nottinghamshire

I arrived at Hazel Gap Barn a little before Rachael and the bridesmaids, to give me a bit of time with Harry at the venue. For those of you out there who are looking for a barn venue in the Midlands, this has to be near the top of your list to check out! One of the latest venues from the team at Cripps & Co, Hazel Gap has it all. An impressive approach for your guests to admire, a stunning barn for your ceremony, a fantastic room at the back of the venue for your wedding breakfast, and a brilliant courtyard for your guests to enjoy the summer evening, or to huddle around fire pits in the colder months.

Indoor Confetti Tunnel

The very nature of weddings means that they all tend to have the same parts of the day, but now and then, I’ll get a first. At this wedding, it was the indoor confetti tunnel! As it was a bit chilly, and I think it had started raining too, the plans to through confetti outside were scrapped, in favour of having the guests throw it from their seats as Rach & Harry walked down the aisle together for the first time. It’s great to have something a bit different to mark the day as being well and truly yours!
