The day came for the wedding of J & J. I was looking forward to being the Tythe Barn Bicester wedding photographer. I had heard about the Tythe Barn before but never had the opportunity to work there. It is a beautiful wedding venue in Oxfordshire. The day was a rather grey and wet October day. On arrival to the venue, rain was coming down pretty hard. I met the bride and her family at the Nook. The Nook is a secluded large room that includes a make up area, lounge and a room. It is ideal for brides to get ready at without worrying of being seen by the guests. The weather had not affected the mood at all. Everyone was in good spirits. The bride prefers cold than too warm anyway and she was not concerned at all. This is the ideal outlook in my opinion, there are some elements such as the weather than we cannot control.
After a while, the groom arrived with the groomsmen. They waited patiently until it was time for the ceremony to start. The bridesmaids walked down the aisle first followed by the bride and her dad. Big smiles were on show by everyone. It was a beautiful ceremony that included some readings by family members. The guests were then invited to the adjacent room for drinks and canapés.
Another of the great features of the Tythe Barn is the amount of room that the venue can offer. On a dry day, the outdoors gardens are beautiful for an outdoors drinks reception. On a wet day, there are too large and bright rooms to the side of the main barn that are great for guests to mingle. It is great when venues can offer different areas for guest to use! it was great to see adults chatting together and children running around and playing. There was no sense of rush or urgency, everything was going at a nice pace.
We were able to go outside for a fee portraits although it was not entirely dry. After a while, it was time for the wedding breakfast. The staff f the venue did a great job in turning the room around in time for dinner. After a lovely a three course meal, it was time for speeches. the speeches were heart felt and not too long, which is a great combination in my opinion. It was then time for guests to stretch their legs before joining the bride and groom on the dance floor.
It really was a lovely day for J & J. They were a lovely couple to work with, relaxed and friendly. They wanted a documentary approach for their wedding day. Below are some of my favourite images from their wedding, I really hope that you like them. if you are looking for The Tythe Barn Bicester Wedding Photographer (or any other venue for that matter), I would love to chat to you about your wedding plans.
