So many gorgeous moments to try and fit in to a minute long teaser… It was an uber-chilled out day at Bassmead Manor Barns for Rebecca & Shaun’s wedding. However, there were plenty of surprises too as Shaun had a box of goodies hand delivered to the Bridal Boudoir. No bride should be without her Percy Pigs on her wedding day after all (the surprise mini-moon to Rome was a bonus!). Not to be outdone, Rebecca had tipped us off that Shaun would be arriving in a surprise mode of transport. It’s fair to say he was beaming as he stepped out of his vintage sports car. But, he did save the biggest smile of the day for the moment he first locked eyes with Rebecca in the Rickety Barn. After a murky start, the customary Bassmead sunset well and truly delivered and was the icing on the cake (no pun intended) for an all-round awesome day!

Flashback to a gorgeous and glitzy winter wedding…
The more we visit the lovely Bassmead Manor Barns, the more we’re convinced it exists inside its very own little weather bubble. Paula & Tony’s mid-winter wedding day began shrowded in heavy fog and we were convinced the sun wouldn’t break through at all. But it did and with it came some of the most magical and stunning winter light we’ve seen in one of our films. Paula looked stunning as she took the (very) short journey from the Bridal boudoir to the beautiful Rickety Barn which was decorated with plenty of twinkly tealights and fairly lights to add even more glam to the occasion and Tony looked super sharp in his Tux too. We even managed to convince the new Mr & Mrs to brave the sub zero temperature for a quick sunset shoot in some of that very special Bassmead golden light.
We love late-Summer rural set weddings they often present us with a good excuse to go wandering through fields of gold to get that perfect shot. All the details from the day were exquisite, from the stunning dress, the gorgeous table decorations to the jaw dropping wedding cakes (all 3 of them!). Emma & Rob were up for pretty much anything we asked of them as we explored the grounds as Bassmead well and truly delivered yet another legendary sunset!
We’re excited to finally be able to show you a sneak peek of a gorgeous wedding we shot earlier this year at the lovely Bassmead Manor Barns. When couples write their own vows it always adds something a little extra special to not only the ceremony but to the finished film. Add in a stunning bride, a Groom in full army ceremonial uniform, a Guard Of Honour, an awesome acoustic performance from the Bride’s brother and lots and lots of sunshine and you a have an all-round epic wedding day. As the sun began to set over Bassmead we caught Becky & Ben performing impromptu rehearsal for their First Dance in the final moments of the golden hour. Lush!
We got a sense of how fun this pair were going to be from their pre-wedding gifts to each other. Groom Bob made Bride Sara chuckle with his Minions and Friends references and Bob was rewarded with a very special suprise from none other than Sir David Attenborough himself. The Rickety Barn at Bassmead Manor Barns looked stunning as did Sara as her Dad walked her down the aisle, after which guests were treated to garden games and delicious canapes while basking in some glorous golden sunshine. Another highlight was the speeches, where in addition to the ususal suspects Sara also delivered a very touching tribute to both her family and of course her new Husband. A perfect day all round!
We picked the perfect day to return to Bassmead Manor Barns for this lovely late summer wedding. Sara & her bridesmaids had a chilled out morning at the gorgeous Bridal Boudoir, just a hop and a skip from the stunning Rickety Barn next door. Bob’s face was priceless as he caught the first glance of his bride – as wedding filmmakers, its moments like this that we love! Guests then enjoyed drinks and delicious food (as always!) as we whisked the new Mr & Mrs off for some filming in the stunning surrounding Cambridgeshire countryside. Happy days!
