A Great Wedding at The Great Barn

July 10, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

The Great Barn, near Banbury, is one of our most local venues, only a ten minute drive from our studio, it's also one of the most stunning. With it's huge stone built halls, beautiful courtyard and spectacular lakes, it's easy to see why Teresa and Joel choose it for their wedding venue.

Teresa got ready at the Great Barn along with her bridesmaids and Mum. There was the usual build up of anticipation and excitement as the girls got ready. Then all too soon a beautiful Aston Martin Rapide pulled up outside to take Teresa to the church just down the road in Souldern.

St Mary's Church in Souldern is a typical English village church, it's beautiful. The vicar gave a fabulous wedding service which was followed by a few photos outside and lots of guests catching up with each other.

Afterwards, back at the reception venue, everyone was enjoying the canapes and drinks in the sun. All the excited chatter and laughter, kids playing and old friends being introduced to new friends, make for a wonderful atmosphere, we love being a part of it.

After a few photos down by the lakes, it was time to sit down for the wedding breakfast, followed by some very entertaining speeches. Poor Joel got very embarrassed by his best man, but hey, isn't that what best men are for.
