A Historic Tithe Barn Wedding

  • Council worker Catriona and government worker Alex were married one sunny spring day, 21st April 2018. Celebration and fun were the order of the day with this pair's wedding with no specific theme in your mind, they trusted their instincts and merely went with everything they love, having a good time being at the top of their listing of priorities!

    "As soon as we walked into the venue we simply got the 'feels' for this, however, the outdoor pizza oven was probably the thing that sealed the offer! Nothing particularly inspired the marriage day, we simply knew we wanted lots of flowers with a significant symmetrical setup, and that's why we went for 2 long tables. The flowers and lighting did all the work at the time because we didn't have another decor, therefore it ended up looking minimalistic but very classic."

    To capture the magnificent day in most of its glory was a wedding photographer whose natural, modern and fun photography style the pair fell deeply in love with.

    "Rachel was wonderful at the time. The images she's caught are stunning and also the colors are so vibrant. We are so incredibly pleased with our pictures and we'll be recommending her to friends! Rachel, our photographer, had offered us the opportunity to work with of her friends who was a videographer, but we declined once we didn't think we'd watch the video. In hindsight, we ought to have gone for this."

    On your day, the bride-to-be drew support from her two bridesmaids who wore beautiful sage bridesmaid dresses from a store online, complimenting Catriona's bridal look wonderfully.

    The groom fit into the historic house setting perfectly, deciding to wear a chequered 3-piece suit, accessorized having a pair of shoes, his dad's patterned bow tie along with a pocket watch gifted to him by Catriona's dad around the morning of the marriage. His best man scrubbed up well, also wearing a Marc Darcy suit and he seemed to be gifted a set of engraved cufflinks. Here

    "Alex and I met at senior high school through mutual friends but didn't start dating for a few years. We had been together for approximately 7 along with a half years before getting engaged throughout a weekend break to Amsterdam. We had been engaged for approximately 18 months through the time we got married."

    "I need to say, the bit following the ceremony when Alex and I could relax and mingle with these guests was possibly the best part during the day for me."

    "It would be a mixture of joy and relief, having a glass of bubbles within the sunshine."

    "I also really liked when I heard the Northern String Quartet playing The Cranberries right before I walked into the ceremony. It was the very first time I had heard it and my father was mid pep talk to me, encouraging me to breathe. So that memory makes me smile."

    With some serious celebrations to become getting on with, guests headed towards the Tithe Barn following a ceremony for an evening of food, fun, and laughter. On arrival, these were greeted having a drinks reception along with a beautifully dressed barn of heavy green garlands around the tables, lighting supplied by, candelabra centerpieces and pops of red and orange.

    Words Of Wedded Wisdom

    "Make sure your daughter's groom is involved in the planning at the start! It was no stress at all for me because we did most of the planning together as a team. Don't let friends and family pressure you into whatever you don’t wish to accomplish. It's your wedding reception after all. Also, don't do things simply because you think you need to."
