Gorgeous autumnal wedding at Rivervale Barn || Holly & Sal
Rivervale Barn in North Hampshire was the dazzling backdrop for Holly and Sal’s Autumnal wedding. Rivervale Barn not only has a stunning barn but beautiful gardens which shows off the seasons bright colors. I had not photographed at this venue before so I was really excited about this wedding.
Dan and I arrived early so that we were able to cover all the preparations for the day. Holly was getting ready in the beauty room at the barn with all her bridesmaids who all wore matching, color co-ordinated gowns. Whilst I covered bridal prep, Dan went to meet Sal on his arrival to the barn with his groomsmen. As you can see from the images, the guys were in excited spirits and had hip flasks at the ready for that all-important sip of courage!
The guests then started to arrive and fill the bright, twinkly lit barn for the early afternoon ceremony. Holly then arrived, to the sound of a harpist and the isle laid with autumn leaves. The theme of the wedding really came together with all the little details.
After the ceremony, the guests were entertained by a magician playing card tricks while Holly and Sal along with the bridal party had some photos taken around the gardens. After the wedding breakfast, the weather had taken a turn for the worse and the rain came, however, this did to deter them from getting outside and taking some epic rain shots.
The evening celebrations began with the cutting of the cake which was beautifully decorated incorporating the Autumn theme. The dancing then followed with Holly dancing with her dad which was a really important aspect of the day. This then led to a traditional first dance as a married couple. Dan and I then left for everyone to enjoy the night under Rivervale Barns magical fairy lights.
Congratulations Holly and Sal!
