Tower Hill Barns Styled Shoot

Tower Hill Barns Styled Shoot

A Lockdown Wedding Styled photo shoot at Tower Hill Barns

The wedding industry was hit hard by COVID-19. Many wedding venues, wedding suppliers including photographers found their bulging 2020 bookings diary deplete hourly to almost zero. So…What are we to do? The creative industries all came together to do what we love! We were able to use the time to showcase our products, our skills and have a bloody good laugh whilst we were at it!

Cassie from Cassie M Bridal is one of North Wales’ leading hair and makeup artists. As well as being super talented, she is an awesome lady to have around on your wedding day. Cassie had the idea of creating a styled shoot and asked if I would be involved to photograph it. Naturally I said yes! Having built up so many positive relationships with wedding suppliers, wedding venues and couples over the years, I was also able to offer my input.

We had decided Tower Hill Barns would be our location of choice. Why? Well the venue is a favourite of mine. It is stunning inside and out and the wedding team at Tower Hill Barns were more than happy to accomodate us.

As for the theme…..Well we kind of went on a tangent and just wanted to go super modern and not your usual approach. We were able to call on good friends and a previous bride and groom of mine, Emma and Phill. When I photographed Emma and Phill’s wedding, they were so easy to work with infront of camera, and Emma also has a black wedding dress! Yes!! To add to this, we thought bright neon’s large floral decorations and smoke bomb’s would make for awesome photographs!

Karen Lesley Bridal had kindly donated us 2 white wedding dresses which not only looked amazing on Emma, but also on the Flower Arch provided and designed by Vivid Floral Design.

Whilst Cassie was doing Emma’s hair and make-up, it gave myself and Mathew from Mathew Lloyd Videography chance to starting setting up some photos and bounce ideas off each other. 

Natalie from Glamour Events Hire was kind enough to showcase some of her neon backdrops. We set these up inside the old barn at Tower Hill so the neon would really stand out.

Tower Hill Barns Wedding Food

There are so many reasons why I love my job. I love meeting new people and capturing your awesome wedding days mostly. But I also get to see new places and taste some amazing food!

Tower Hill Barns in North Wales, has some of the best wedding food I have ever had the joy of tasting. I am a massive foodie (eating not cooking!), and when Jo and her team from Tower Hill Barns asked me to attend their Winter Wedding Food tasting day, and take some photographs of just some of the offerings, I couldn’t refuse. Especially knowing that I would get to eat what was put in front of me once I had finished photographing it. I left Tower Hill Barns that day about a stone heavier and in serious need of an afternoon nap!

All of Tower Hill Barns’ menu is created with the bride and groom in mind. There is so much to choose from and it can be personalised to your requirements or seasonal vibes. The wedding food I had the pleasure of tasting was themed for a Winter wedding. All the food at Tower Hill Barns is sourced locally in North Wales and prepared at the venue.

Tower Hill Barns Wedding Photographer – I first met Nathan and Alice a while ago in Chester. I just remember thinking, wow what a lovely couple. So down to earth and so much fun. Obviously I was delighted when they said they would like to book me to photograph their wedding at Tower Hill Barns.

I arrived with Alice for bridal prep at Tower Hill, and was made to feel like one of the bridal party. Tea, coffee, Prosecco Rich? As much as I would have loved to be sipping fizz with them all, it might have made my job a little bit tricky.

Alice looked stunning in her wedding dress and the lads didn’t scrub up to bad either. The ceremony was held inside the main barn at Tower Hill. It was far too cold for an outdoor ceremony. The ceremony had me and everyone else in stitches. Nathan had recently caused an injury to his knuckle meaning he couldn’t get his wedding ring on without a little help. So…. When it came to the rings part of the ceremony, Nathan whips out a tin of Vaseline from his inside pocket!

Following the ceremony, it was party time and time to create to awesome pictures and video footage. Michael from Capture My Big Day was on hand to make sure the video footage looked epic as always.

After the wedding breakfast, the daylight had faded over Tower Hill Barns in Llangollen and left us with some awesome lights from the venue and lovely fire-pits provided by the venue.

To finish the night, with guests braving the wintery North Wales weather, everyone joined us outside for a sparkler exit.

Here are a few of my favourites from Nathan and Alice’s amazing wedding at Tower Hill Barns.
