Gaynes Park Wedding film.

The Essex wedding barn that ticks all the boxes. Barn weddings in 2020 popular & with venues like Gaynes Park it’s not hard to see why. Third Reel Films spent a day at this all-rounded venue and we have a lot to talk about.

What couples want. 

A wedding day is a lot to handle, even the most prepared couples can make anxiety-provoking mistakes. There’s nothing more comforting than seeing a well-orchestrated team help ease a couple into there wedding day.

When we arrived at Gaynes Park, we made our normal introductions and proceeded to walk the grounds preparing ourselves for the day. It was still early and i expected to see staff running around setting up, but instead, there was a calmness that replaced the chaos. Last little adjustments being made and the odd chair ribbon being tied but other than that, the team were set to go.

The Apple Wood cottage.

The bride & Co were getting ready inside the little cottage that is situated a short distance from the rest of the venue. This little TARDIS again impressed us. Okay, it’s not the biggest, but easily big enough for a full bridal party, two photographers & two videographers. We had a great time in the morning, lots of laughing and lots of fizz being passed around.

The long walk.

The self proclaimed long walk, takes our bride from cottage to Orangery. Surrounded by nearest and dearest, I can imagine this to be an emotional time. The walk itself is stunning, through the heart shaped door, into the gardens which lead to the long aisle walk. Visually you couldn’t Gaynes park when making a wedding film.
Again, I have to give a shout out the team working away, as they kept to all the timings and made the process seamless.
Inside the orangery, the family and friends eagerly awaited our brides arrival. When she turned the corner to make the aisle walk, the glass room was filled with audible delight. The groom was caught up in the moment but his boys were good to him, and gave him a pat on the shoulder of appreciation.

The Grounds.

If I were hosting a wedding here, I would strongly encourage my guests to take the time to explore. There is so much to see at this impressive Essex wedding venue, charming little walks and stunning views. I’m keen to get back to Gaynes park so we can have another roll of the dice. It’s always nice having a few locations to take couple for their portrait shots. We used,

  • The Love is Here Bench,
  • The Gardens,
  • The London skyline,
  • The love door,

I’m convinced though, that this is only 50% of the offerings, so if you’re reading this, getting married at Gaynes Park & need a videographer, Hire us! Although, there is lots to choose from, for couple photography preparation and willingness is key as your Fit bit will be adding up those steps, if you intend to see the lot. 

The Reception

A lot of these wedding barns have buckets of character, and Gaynes park didn’t disappoint but what I liked most about the barn, was actually the exterior. The “Gather barn” which allowed for guests to relax and enjoy the countryside sunset. To top it all off, they evening had the buffet outside with plentiful offerings.

Gaynes park wedding film.

To conclude Gaynes park was a treat for us at Third Reel Films. The venue’s team surpassed my expectations and looked after us all day. Most importantly as a wedding film maker, I left feeling refreshed as it wasn’t just another barn wedding. I would recommend this venue to anyone really, it really does have a lot to offer. If I had to be more specific, I would say, the venue would be great for someone that wants a rustic county wedding, without having to get your hands dirty. This venue’s team, will gently lead you through the day. Take it from me a good staffing team will make or break a wedding venue & you’re in safe hands here.
