The Old Barn Llanmartin Wedding Photography with Wynita and Shaun
The Old Barn Llanmartin is one of the little gems in the wedding venues of South Wales. Small, bijou and perfectly formed for the smaller more intimate weddings. And the Old Barn is the location that Wynita & Shaun chose for their wedding.
I first met Shaun when he was heading up the local Staples branch. I use Staples for my A1 canvases and got to know him, and the team really well. It was a great honour to be asked to photograph his wedding to the amazingly gorgeous Wynita (told you I’d flirt with her Shaun!! ;-) ).
Not too much bridal prep was required – enough to get the dress, perfume, shoes, engagement ring, bracelet, earrings, garter and flower girl dresses and then it was off to St. Martins Church in Llanmartin. This is a short walk to The Old Barn and as such, it is a perfect place for the local couple to get married in.
A VERY BIG special mention must go out to the vicar at St. Martins Church- Alison. An absolute star in my opinion and what all vicars should aspire to be like. Funny, friendly, professional, warm and welcoming. We got on like a house on fire. It was her professionalism in allowing me to do my profession that enabled me to capture some truly lovely moments from the wedding service. I just hope more vicars will take note.
After that great service it was off to the Old Barn and Jackie the proprietress once again had done a sterling job with her team in setting out the wedding breakfast. Jackie goes all out to make sure the wedding couple get exactly what they want and have a great day.
Group photograph, a few family shots and we were off to a local village I know called Llandevaud for some intimate shots of the happy couple. It has a great grassed area that is kept ‘rustic’ to help support the local wildlife. Back to the Old Barn in time for the main meal.
First dance (dance floor provided by Forever Bows) and then I put Wynita & Shaun into my car and we drove to a little place I know to capture some amazing sunset photographs before heading back to the Old Barn Llanmartin and finishing the day with dancing and buffet!
