Northamptonshire Wedding Photographers

As far as rustic barn venues are concerned, The Tractor Barn by Stone Siding Events is one of our faves! We’re on their list of recommended Northamptonshire wedding photographer and we photographed one of the first weddings they held, back in 2021. It’s a beautiful rural barn in Guilsborough, not far from Northampton, Rugby or Daventry, so easy for your guests to find whilst still feeling secluded and surrounded by views of the stunning countryside.

There’s loads of space available between the Tractor Barn and the surrounding grounds where you can hold outdoor ceremonies, or even have a festival-style wedding in a yurt or tipi for up to 250 guests. The Tractor Barn itself is made of rustic brick with a corrugated metal roof and beautiful big windows, so even if it rains you can still enjoy the scenery.

We love working with couples who prioritise fun, laughter and all the real stuff, and The Tractor Barn by Stone Siding Events is the perfect place to create a unique, relaxed atmosphere for your wedding day.

 Relaxed wedding in Northamptonshire – Flis and Andy

When Flis and Andy contacted us via Facebook we immediately knew they were our kind of people – they were planning a super relaxed day and our award-winning documentary wedding photography was exactly what they wanted. Their friends and family welcomed us so warmly, and although we don’t have favourites (honest!), Flis and Andy’s Northamptonshire wedding was a genuinely magical day to be a part of.

Pre-wedding photos to put you at ease

Flis and Andy were quite nervous about being in front of the camera (which we hear quite a lot!) so we met them for a pre-wedding photoshoot to put them at ease. We all hit it off immediately, with Nala the dog also joining them on the beach for some fun photos. Having this initial practice run can help you to feel more at ease about your wedding photography, and will mean you can look forward to the big day even more!

Jawad joined Flis at a nearby Air BnB where she got ready with her bridal party, he made excellent use of the light to capture some gorgeous atmospheric shots of makeup artist Sophie Sheridan and hair stylist Stacey Granger adding the finishing touches. Flis had chosen a delicately detailed and floaty dress from Silver Sixpence Bridal in Towcester, which suited the relaxed and rustic countryside theme of the day and looked stunning on her!

Jawad also captured the fun, informal atmosphere, with everyone laughing and smiling, as well as plenty of cute little moments with the kids. Some of these photos went on to receive international awards too.

Meanwhile, Janina was at home with Andrew who got ready with the boys and of course Nala by his side. Being able to bring your four-legged family to your wedding is a HUGE bonus of getting married at Stone Siding Events’ Tractor Barn. Not only are dogs just as important as human guests, they can also help to calm your nerves before your big moment with a well-timed paw!

After doing the official paperwork ahead of their big day, Fliss and Andy were able to have a fun and unique outdoor ceremony, led by one of their friends who’d even dressed as a vicar for the occasion! There were lots of laughs and personal stories throughout their ceremony, and Nala joined them as one of the flower girls, of course. Speaking of flowers, Charlotte Franklin from Wilder Floral Design created fabulous floral crowns, a huge bouquet for Fliss, and arrangements for the aisle. The pampas grass and muted greens looked luxurious and unique whilst still embracing the informal, rustic vibe of the day. 

Nala enjoyed lots of ear rubs during the ceremony, as she’d made herself quite comfy on the grass between her paw-rents! Looking out over the countryside was the ideal backdrop for their Northamptonshire wedding photography, surrounded by fields and farmland, where Flis and Andrew feel most at home.

Party into the evening

After some very quick, informal group photos we took Fliss and Andy for a walk (and space hopper bounce!) across the fields before heading back to their wedding reception in the Tractor Barn. Simply decorated with long tables under a foliage chandelier, everyone relaxed and enjoyed delicious food. Flis and Andy made sure we got time to eat our food while it was still hot (which really made a difference in fuelling us for the evening party!) before they started their speeches. What an ace couple!

The well-stocked gin bar and a special visit from Horsebox Ice Cream Company went down really well with the guests, and later a pizza van provided evening snacks – this was a big hit! Something we love about working as Northamptonshire wedding photographers at Stone Siding Events is the flexibility they offer to couples – there are no restrictions on suppliers so you can make everything totally you! Pizza, steak, garden games, endless gin cocktails… Have it all!

The soundtrack to the evening was provided by Terry, The Rustic DJ who had a cool little setup of rustic props that suited the barn setting perfectly. Flis lit up the dancefloor with some brilliant moves and we stayed pretty much until the end of the party – dancing the night away with their wonderful friends and family. We love a party, we love a relaxed wedding, and we love Flis and Andy (*and Nala!).
