Jenna and Ross had their beautiful barn wedding at the Great Tythe Barn , a quintessential English gem and picturesque venue that has all the rustic charm you can ever ask for! We absolutely loved all the rustic wedding details in the decoration including the hand knitted lace, wooden crates and the table chart with picture frames! Enjoy every beautiful image of this lovely barn wedding captured by Kevin Belson Photography.
“We wanted a laid back day with a mix of tradition but not centered around formality. Our main goal was for everyone to have a great time and have a wedding to remember in the process!”
Jenna shared with us the wedding proposal story: “I was coming back from a friends Hen do in Bristol with a hideous hangover just so happened to be the day we secured the keys to our first house together. Ross was ringing me checking how far away I was and kept asking me how rough I felt (didn’t think anything of it at the time!) He said he was at the new house and to come straight there, when I arrived he was down on one knee in the kitchen surrounded by flowers and candles! It was a fabulous idea and soon knocked my hangover into touch…”
“The wedding location was absolutely perfect as I originate from Wales and Ross from London so a destination in the middle of the 2 seemed quite apt! Also, I had always loved the idea of a two day event where all the friends and family could mix the night before and stay on site. The Great Tythe Barn meant 80 people could be accommodated and not have to worry about transport to and from the venue plus we wanted a civil ceremony in a rustic location it was a dream find when we went to view it!”
“Our wedding photographers were attentive and listened to exactly what we were after. We loved the idea of getting to know them beforehand on the pre wedding shoot and after looking through their portfolio just knew they would capture the day exactly how we had envisioned. The approach to the guests and events throughout the day was amazing and really put everyone at ease. They really captured the emotion of the day and it shows through the photography work. The compliments we are getting on the album are phenomenal and the ‘tricks of the trade’ to capture the best light and angles were used without ever feeling like it was taking too long. We were really quite fussy as we wanted the best photos without standing around for hours posing so they had their work cut out for them, but definitely knew what we wanted in the end probably more than we did!”
The bride’s advise: “Brides (although this is really trivial) you will be zoned out for a good portion of the morning as it gets closer to the time and it sinks in that you are getting married (well I was, anyway!) so make sure you are absolutely 100% happy with how your hair/makeup looks and feels, get an honest bridesmaid to step in and bark out orders if needs be! Once you step out to get married the photos really start and you cant take it back! It was a really humid day for us and if I could change one thing it would be to not have bits of hair hanging down within and hour they had lost their curls and gone limp! So make sure you have factored in how your hair will behave…. As for the build up and day … just have fun with it all and don’t stress about the little things (although of course you will!)”
