Fairytale Wedding Planning in the UK: Barn Wedding in Yorkshire

Barn Wedding in Yorkshire

Barn weddings are truly amazing, I just love them!  As most barn weddings are surrounded by beautiful open fields and rolling hills, this makes them the perfect backdrop for lots of gorgeous and very romantic photographs. 

Most barn venues offer couples totally exclusive use for the duration of your special day, which means you don't have to worry about sharing the venue with anyone else. You will also have plenty of outdoor space to entertain your guests, with the option to add extras to your day such as a small marquee, outdoor games, a mobile bar, etc.

Barns are full of history which gives them that extra character and charm. They are also blank canvases that you can tailor to your vision and personality. This gives you the opportunity to put your own ideas and creativity into your day and the freedom to choose exactly how you want your day to be, no matter what your theme. High ceilings, beautiful beams and neutral colours means you can add glamour, vintage, boho, country, etc without the worry of clashing with patterned wallpaper or colored carpet.

This stunning barn wedding was captured by our highly talented photographer Scott Carney, at East Yorkshire Barns...  I'm sure it will give you some barn wedding inspiration!

Scott had been waiting for this East Yorkshire barn wedding ever since he heard that Jaime and Paul were engaged. Scott went to school with Jaime and she also worked with Scott's younger brother at York hospital, so when Paul had asked the important question, Scott had his fingers crossed they would choose him to photograph their day.

When Jaime and Paul told Scott they were having an East Yorkshire Barns Wedding he just couldn't wait, Scott loves a barn wedding. They also chose the stunning Selby Abbey for their ceremony, which in Scott's opinion is one the nicest churches in Yorkshire.

Scott spent the morning with Jaime at her house in Selby, capturing all the emotions before she made her way to the church. All of Jaime's bridesmaids were in full swing when he arrived and said the morning was a great laugh. Scott's assistant Emil spent the morning with Paul and the boys, who enjoyed shots for courage before heading to the church.


Scott grew up between York and Selby, Selby Abbey sits in the heart of the town, Selby. Scott says it is a stunning church with a history dating back to 1069.

It was Scott's first time photographing a wedding Selby Abbey, he says it has the most fantastic backdrop.

Jaime and Paul's family and friends were all there to be part of their special day. It was a lovely intimate ceremony that included readings. After the ceremony, there were more photo opportunities, confetti, and greetings from all their family and friends before heading to East Yorkshire Barns.


Scott has photographed all over the country but believes that Yorkshire has some of the best wedding barns. He says that East Yorkshire Barns is the perfect example, set in complete countryside this stunning setting has everything you would want from a rustic wedding. Fields and open space, barns to party in, and even a vintage tractor! He said the whole day was amazing, the weather, speeches, band and even Ralph the dog made an appearance.

Scott said everyone had a fantastic day, and in the evening the dance floor was full all night with everyone enjoying the band and the DJ.

I am sure you will agree that Scott captured Jaime and Paul's wedding so very beautifully and has left them with many amazing memories to look back on for the years to come.
