Ashleigh and Adam went for a cool barn wedding in Oxfordshire. The vibe was relaxed, “undone but together”. The couple wanted it to be modern and playful but with nods at tradition. They wanted it a bit indie with natural tones throughout with golds, whites and greens. What was the result? Let’s see!
An Oxfordshire barn wedding venue played host to this sentimental celebration with neutral and gold decor, a fairy light canopy and the couples favorite flowers hanging at the altar. Personal touches were scattered throughout, including a doughnut wall that the bride’s father lovingly built, which they had in place of a traditional wedding cake along with delicious personalized macaron favors. And they didn’t stop there, with heartfelt sentimental vows that the bride and groom had written themselves, homemade go-pro hats for guests to wear in the evening instead of a photobooth and polaroid photos of guests on their place settings, there wasn’t an aspect of this wedding that hadn’t been carefully considered and you can totally tell!
Each element had a personal touch or meaning behind it, even if guests didn’t realize. The Harvey Times with their favorite flowers hanging behind them during the ceremony and meal, creating their own wedding breakfast menu and drinks menu, scented candles, their own styling, homemade playful “guest hat go pros” for the evening instead of a photobooth they couldn’t afford, photos of each guest on their place setting, the rug from their dining room to stand on during the vows to forever take them back to that moment.
The bride looked stunning in a minimalist, thin strap, Sassi Holford wedding dress alongside her bridal party who wore blue Rewritten bridesmaid dresses. And of course, we definitely can’t forget the dashing groom who chose a dapper tweed jacket and waistcoat.
