I love the Barns Hunsbury Hill wedding venue, which is set on a hill overlooking Northampton town.

I must admit when I drove through a housing estate to get to it, I had no idea that it would open out into such beautiful countryside.

It was a real surprise.

One of the things I loved most about this venue was the fact the ceremony room had blackout blinds at the doors.

This may seem a weird thing to pick up on, but as a photographer these little things make all the difference to your wedding photos.

I also love the relaxed feel of their weddings, especially in the summer when the kids can play games on the lawn while the adults sit by the outdoor bar.

If you would like to look around and meet us all, I will be at their wedding fair on Sunday 19th May. Please come and say hi 🙂
