We absolutely loved this spring celebration of love!
Gate Street Barn is a beautiful wedding venue hidden in the stunning Surrey Hills… not too far from where us guys met at the Academy of Contemporary Music where our 10 year friendship started, and subsequently the birthplace of Entrée, so love was in the air for us before we arrived. (I know, cute right?)
It has that charming rustic feel, but the entire venue is finished to a high modern standard. Think high ceilings, big beams and fresh cream paint.
The gardens were in full bloom and Kate and Jonathan were really lucky with the weather – no April showers in sight!
It’s always nice to arrive to the bellowing sound of laughter from the speeches, and a good indicator that the dancefloor was going to be packed later on – and we weren’t wrong!
With set up complete, we were really looking forward to playing the first dance. Kate and Jonathon’s choice of ‘I Like Me Better When I’m With You’ by Lauv wasn’t something we had in our repertoire so were able to rearrange it and send them a video of our version before the big day. It’s always nice to hear the bride and groom are happy with our rearrangement of songs, especially for their first dance. It’s a huge responsibility that we take great pride in being a part of.
As chance would have it, I went to high school with the videographer! The world is such a small place sometimes. I love that about weddings, even if you think you don’t know any of the guests there will always be one! They call it the ‘Six Degrees of Separation’ – the idea that all people are six, or fewer, social connections away. Anyway, thins rang true at this wedding and bumping into Ashleigh was lovely. Side note, check out ashvideography.com if you know anyone getting married who wants a truly sensitive and beautiful account. She has way of capturing the little gazes and moments most videographers miss, not to mention the super high quality of her work.
