REAL WEDDING

READ THE ROMANCE

One swipe right later and a first date that started with sneaking into a club, Bryony and Natasha knew they’d met their partner in crime. Turning up the romance to pop the question, Bryony proposed to Natasha not in a club but a cinema instead, surrounded by family and friends who’d made their own movie of messages of congratulations. Where do we sign up for that?

THE VENUE

After giving themselves a three-year deadline to plan every last detail of their big day, there was one thing that Natasha and Bryony were set on from the start – they wanted rustic.

With a barn aesthetic in mind, Bryony and Natasha visited Doxford Barns and it was love at first sight. With its dramatic lofted ceilings, statement chandeliers wrapped in a sea of foliage and characterful exposed brick walls, the Threshing Barn was the perfect place for this duo to tie the knot.

THE CEREMONY HALL LOOKS SO ROMANTIC AND INTIMATE. THE MANTLE PIECE LOOKS AMAZING WHEN FILLED WITH CANDLES – SEEING THIS ROOM IS WHAT SOLD IT FOR US.

NATASHA, THE BRIDE

Despite four rearranged dates, Bryony and Faye’s infatuation with their venue stood the test of time and specifically, a pandemic,  celebrating  their would-have-been date with a romantic picnic in the grounds.

PASTEL IN THE FRONT, PARTY IN THE BACK

Keeping the rustic theme running throughout, Bryony and Natasha separated their bridesmaids into two colours, opting for light and airy pastel tones that perfectly complimented the neutral aesthetic of their venue.

WE HAD ALCOHOL MINIS AS FAVOURS AND ON THE EVENING WE HAD LOTS OF DRINKING GAMES SET UP ON THE TABLES AND ROUND THE VENUE.

Q&A

WHO GETS THE GOLD MEDAL IN THE WEDDING OLYMPICS?

The staff at Doxford Barns were so accommodating to everything we wanted for our wedding and helped us have the perfect day. We can't thank them enough.

HOW DID YOU FELE AS YOU WALKED DOWN THE ASILE?

We were both overwhelmed with how happy we were. We finally got to the point of getting married after what ended up being four years of being engaged!

WHAT'S YOUR FUNNIEST MEMORY FROM THE DAY?

We both messed up our vows! Given how much we had prepared and how important it was quite funny that we got them wrong. But us and our guests saw the funny side.
