Tudor Barn Wedding Photography
Photographing weddings at Tudor Barn
The Tudor Barn has timber beams dating back to 1505, and the original barn buildings were used on the working farm. It was owned by the Bayley family who passed it from generation to generation for many years. In the 1920s it became a convent, and gradually the number of nuns dwindled over time. Then in 1990 bridge enthusiast Laurie Champniss was searching for a suitable premises to establish a full time Bridge Centre, and by chance he was notified of this former convent being for sale. He was very enthusiastic about the possibilities for this fabulous run down barn, and as soon the purchase was complete the buildings were extensively renovated to house his bridge club. The original barn is now available to host weddings for up to 130 guests.
An amazing amount of care and attention went into the restoration works in order to preserve as much of the original character as possible, whilst including all the modern amenities and comfort.
It’s great to think that this venue which is steeped in so much rich history continues to this day to make magic memories, and that many couples now choose the Tudor Barn as the place that they wish to make history by taking their own wedding vows in this lovely setting.
Some of my favourite photography backdrops at the Tudor Barn include the clock tower in the courtyard, and I particularly like using the ruined folly in the gardens. On my last visit I took my floodlighting for some very dramatically lit pictures inside the folly, these were of the bride and groom at dusk with their ushers, you can see these pictures above in the gallery.
