James & Katie’s Sedgewell Barn Wedding

Today, I’m thrilled to share the story of James & Katie’s extraordinary wedding day—a wonderful blend of laughter, love, and pure fun set against the picturesque backdrop of Sedgewell Barn in rural North Yorkshire. Join me as we relive their stunning celebration, while uncovering the magic of Sedgewell Barn Wedding Photography.
Incredibly (considering it’s on my doorstep in Northallerton, North Yorkshire) this was my first visit to Sedgewell Barn!

The Day


We began with a relaxed morning in the Bridal Suite. Gorgeous morning light streamed in through the windows, contradicting the forecasted thunderstorms and making for beautiful photographs as the girls had their hair and make-up done.
Having been down to Sedgewell Barn’s glamping pods site to meet the groomsmen, there was just time for a touching moment of reveal between the Bride and her dad before the wedding. The ceremony itself was beautiful, with readings from friends and the incredible harpist Stephanie playing guests in and out. A guest appearance was also made by Sedgewell Barn’s resident Shetland Pony with the very important job of handing out the confetti!
We kept one eye on the weather as it rolled back and forth from thunderstorms to stunning blue skies. Thankfully we managed to capture family photographs and stunning, ethereal bridal portraits. Walking through fields of waist high wild flowers with Katie’s veil catching beautifully on the breeze.
The guests were then seated for a selection of emotive, nostalgic and hilarious speeches . This was followed by the wedding breakfast – a delicious BBQ sharing selection from Homegrown Hospitality.
The dance floor soon became the focal point of the evening. After Katie & James shared their first dance as husband and wife, the DJ and saxophonist got the party started!
As a wedding photographer, I am always so privileged to capture such an exceptional day and to work with so many incredible suppliers. I think you’ll agree from these photographs how fantastic it was!
