Wedding Ideas at Sissons Barn – Part One

As a Stamford wedding photographer, I was over the moon when Sissons Barn opened as a brand new wedding venue right on my doorstep. Sissons Barn is a modern oak barn, located on the border between Cambridgeshire and South Lincolnshire not far from Market Deeping. It was when I visited the barn in Winter 2018 that that the idea to create a styled shoot was born, with a view to showcasing this stunning new wedding venue and also some amazing local wedding suppliers.

We actually had two shoots in mind, which is why there is a part one and two to this feature. This post focuses on showing off the talents of the super creative ladies who provide wedding flowers, hair and makeup, stationery, cakes, gowns and accessories. We wanted to create an opulent table-scape filled with flowers by Donna of @TheCountryGardenFlorist and props from Jack at @PrettyQuirkyHire. Place settings and stationery were provided by Lucy from @InTheDetails and Katie from @CoutureCakes worked tirelessly on an incredible swing cake table, suspended from the barn’s oak beams. Our model’s hair and makeup was styled by @LouisaSarah and dresses, shoes and accessories were provided by @FabulousGownsBourne.

We all really enjoyed showcasing our creativity and collaborating on this shoot, and I’d recommend any of these incredible suppliers to couples getting married at Sissons Barn. Remember to click onto the next post to see what else we got up to!

If you are looking for a Sissons Barn Wedding Photographer I would love to hear from you to talk about your plans.
