Bickham Barn Wedding Photography

Wedding photography at Bickham Barn

Nestled on the edge of Exeter, near Kenn, you'll find Bickham Barn, a wonderful location for a barn wedding and the venue of choice for Lucy and Jake. This was my first visit as a wedding photographer at Bickham Barn, and what a treat it was. Lucy and Jake put soooo much thought and effort into their plans. As a working farm with a rustic feel there was essentially a blank canvas to build their own theme. From individually cut out paper shapes to mounting Jake's triathlon bike to the barn roof, there were so many little details to be found.

My day started with the ceremony, at what I think is the closest church to my house, I can walk there within minutes. The beauty of this church is the space, and feeling welcomed as a photographer with space to capture the ceremony is the perfect combination. After the ceremony it was off to Bickham Barn, including a photography first for me, raising a wedding flag! One of the many personal touches I discovered throughout the day. After some lovely canapés everyone headed into the barn for speeches, including a brilliant PowerPoint presentation (not the kind you get at work!) from the best man.

We headed out for some photos in the evening, including a cheeky display from the groomsmen, which I hope was a 'pleasant' surprise for Lucy and Jake for when they opened their gallery! It was a fantastic night of fun and laughter, which included a sparkler line. These are always fun, but when the sparklers are lit via a ginormous blowtorch, you know it it's a good'n! The end of the night was marshmallows over the bonfire, a fantastic send off to a great wedding day!

"Everyone has two smiles - your posing for a camera smile and a pure belly laughing smile - Lee Maxwell is able to capture both of these smiles with amazing pictures. If you are looking for a photographer who is like a fly on the wall capturing all the special moments from your wedding day then Lee is your go to photographer. From the beginning Lee was easy to talk to and understood our vision of our wedding day. On the wedding day he was happy to go with any ideas as well as adapting to a new venue he had not been to before. We cannot thank Lee enough for all the amazing pictures we have of our wedding day to look back on."
