Despite months (sometimes even years!) of planning, a bride and groom can never guarantee what their wedding weather is going to be like. This was certainly the case for Sarah and Bob, on their special day. Taking place on the last weekend of September, the couple had been desperate for an outdoor ceremony. However, on the morning of the wedding, Mother Nature had different ideas, with a misty fog encompassing the venue. Thankfully, neither Sarah nor Bob, lost hope, and when it came to their ceremony, the sun broke out, giving them the late summer wedding they’d dreamed of.
The intimate ceremony took place at Hyde Barn. Nestled in the Cotswolds, the couple were attracted to the traditional venue for its combination of archaic architecture with a contemporary and elegantly finished barn, giving them a blank canvas to put their personality and ideas into the celebration of their wedding.
Sarah wore an elegant white strapless gown by Provnovias, accompanied by her bridesmaids in midnight blue dresses from Maids to Measure. Each of the dresses were complemented perfectly with their simple hydrangea bouquets from the local florist, Cotswold Blooms.
After the outdoor ceremony and drinks reception, the wedding party retreated inside the barn, where the simple sophisticated theme continued, with elegant white decorations and a beautiful florally embellished cake, from the Pretty Cake Company.
The guests enjoyed a delicious wedding breakfast, before being entertained by Bob and his groomsmen’s speeches. It was then time for Sarah and Bob’s romantic first dance, where the couple took to the centre of the barn surrounded by their friends and family.
