I originally met Jade at a wedding fair in Weybridge. We had a lovely chat and arranged to meet up to discuss her Rivervale Barn wedding in more detail. I knew we were going to get on when she brought Snickers Lattes from Coffee Culture into my life (and yes, they are as amazing as they sound!). When the cafe closed we headed over to the Anthropologie store where she works, plonked ourselves on one of their stunning sofas and carried on chatting. She’s a proper laid-back and fun person, exactly the type of bride I love working with!
Rivervale Barn wedding
Jade and Ellis had their Rivervale Barn wedding in April this year. Rivervale Barn is a stunning venue with a ceremony room that is just bathed in beautiful natural light from the huge windows at the front. Jade was the smiliest, happiest bride I had ever seen, she couldn’t stop grinning and Ellis was the same. It was so sweet and made for some great ceremony photos.
Rivervale Barn also has beautiful gardens which are just perfect for photos. Unfortunately it was raining quite heavily for much of the day meaning that we were inside a lot of the time. Luckily this venue has plenty of inside space which is great as a plan B when the weather isn’t ideal on your wedding day.

The rain did hold off for long enough to allow us to get out in the gardens for some couple portraits. I was glad it did, because it was mid-Springtime and the gardens were positively blooming with gorgeous colourful flowers. These made such a perfect backdrop with pops of vibrant colour.
We also managed to persuade everyone to get outside to throw the confetti. They all braved it despite the angry looking clouds overhead! I hate to toot my own horn, but I got my FAVOURITE EVER confetti shot with these guys!! You can see it further down the page, their expressions are just the best. Jade and Ellis are such a fun couple and I adored their Rivervale Barn wedding day.
