I first met Corinne & Matt at a wedding last year where she was a bridesmaid, guess where? here at The Old Barn. On my second visit this year The Old Barn in as many weeks I got to see what someone else would do with this beautiful venue.
Last year as I mentioned Corinne was a bridesmaid for her friend Sharmaine, who's wedding I also shot, this year the roles reversed and Shar was the bridesmaid. During the wedding breakfast I was sat next to Matt and opposite Corinne. During the meal they mentioned that they had recently got engaged and were having their do at the same venue and we chatted about how they were going to decorate and make the venue their own. Thats the great thing about places like that, its a blank canvas and you can add your own touches.
I think Matt was more nervous than he would care to let on and when one of his mates tapped him on the shoulder just before the ceremony and said "its not too late mate" I think that just stepped it up a notch. He held it together and watched with a tear in his eye as Corinne walked down the aisle with her Mum looking amazing. The couple and crowd were such a lovely group, I even got dragged onto the dance floor at one point by some of the guests, I quickly made my excuses and left to shoot, I'm no dancer.
They got married near May The 4th hence Mr Vader and his crew appearing in the photos below, something diefferent, I love something different. Corinne & Matt, I had such a great time with you, your family and friends, thank you for trusting me with your memories, Mike
