Fison Barn Wedding
Fison Barn Wedding | Cat + Danny
“Just wanted to say a massive thank you for the photos – they are absolutely stunning. We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer, and really appreciated your personality on the day – I know you did a lot to calm Danny’s nerves!”
Some weddings just seem to have the sun on their backs and the wind in their sails, you get swept up in it all and taken along for this amazing ride…and hopefully take a few pictures along the way. This was so the case with Cat & Danny’s wedding at Fison Barn in Oxfordshire.
When your wedding revolves around the fundamentals such as love, family & friendship you know it’s going to be an amazing day. What makes any wedding stand apart from another isn’t money, it’s effort. It’s the huge amounts of time and energy that the couple, their family and friends have all spent to make the day just so. A little example of this is the 1000 origami* cranes that Cat & Danny had made and that lined the walls of their reception . I forget just how many evenings on the run up to their wedding they had spent making these cranes but it was a substantial number. And I guess that’s the point, great things don’t just happen they often require a bit of effort…it’s a clumsy metaphor but it’s a bit like marriage. This tremendous effort wasn’t just limited to Cat & Danny however, their guests all brought along amazing dishes of food that they had specially made for the wedding breakfast. It sounds a bit corny saying this but the food all had an amazing ingredient lacking from many a wedding breakfast…and that’s love. There’s nothing quite like home cooked food.
I think you can probably tell by now that I was a big fan of this wedding and a big fan of Cat and Danny. I loved photographing the pagan stone ritual that we all climbed to the top of the hill for. This was a first for me. And I remember Cat asking if there was a chance I could do some natural pictures of her and Danny if there was a nice sunset…and boy did we get a nice sunset.
Here’s their day,

*Thousand Origami Cranes (千羽鶴 Senbazuru?) is a group of one thousand origami paper cranes (折鶴 orizuru?) held together by strings. An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish by a crane. Some stories believe you are granted eternal good luck, instead of just one wish, such as long life or recovery from illness or injury. This makes them popular gifts for special friends and family. The crane in Japan is one of the mystical or holy creatures (others include the dragon and the tortoise) and is said to live for a thousand years: That is why 1000 cranes are made, one for each year. In some stories it is believed that the 1000 cranes must be completed within one year and they must all be made by the person who is to make the wish at the end. Cranes that are made by that person and given away to another aren’t included: All cranes must be kept by the person wishing at the end.
