Amy & Grants Tewin Bury Farm Wedding Day
Hey Folks! Today on the blog is Amy & Grants Autumn Tewin Bury Farm Wedding Day. They Tied the knot early October last year in a 17th century tythe barn ceremony at Tewin Bury Farm, overlooking beautiful Hertfordshire countryside. Thank you for a great day ! It was a pleasure photographing your wedding day. Enjoy
Where did you get married/why did you choose the venue did you have any type of theme to your day/ colour schemes
We both really wanted to get married in a country barn. When we first viewed the Tythe Barn at Tewin Bury Farm Hotel we knew right away that it ticked all the boxes. Not only was it a 10 minute drive from our home but we fell in love with the 17th century wooden beams and rustic interior. We also loved the fact that it was set amongst a working farm with beautiful surroundings.
We didn’t really have a theme as such, we wanted a rustic look and just ran with that alongside the mood of October by including autumnal colours (green, purple, plum and charcoal grey).
Which flowers did you choose?Keeping with the ‘rustic theme’ I chose garden flowers in a loose setting. These included lots of leafy greens and plum tones …Ivory and plum Roses, Skimmia, green and purple Eustoma, Ivory Wax Flower, Astrantia, Thistles and Dahlias.
The groomsmen and mums had a rose with a thistle in their buttonholes/corsages. The flower girls had rose wands set in plum ribbon and the 4 bridesmaids had smaller versions of my bouquet.
The Dress! I found dress shopping rather stressful as I didn’t really know what I was looking for…. I knew I wanted something fairly simple but with plenty of finer detail. I picked an a-line ivory dress, designed by So Sassi, which I truly loved. The skirt consisted of 5 layers of mixed fabrics including a variety of light laces, tulle and satin underskirt and finished with a lace trim at the bottom. The dress was strapless with a sweetheart neckline however I added a detachable lace cap sleeve shrug, which I removed for the evening reception giving it two looks. It also included further lace detail around the waist area and a small satin bow at the front.
Hair/MUA: I was set on having my hair down as that’s how I usually wear it, however, I ended up having a loose, curled up style with looped twirls running though the top and pinned low at the back. I didn’t want anything too ‘styled’ as I wanted to keep the overall look fairly soft.
Which colour did the groomsmen/ bridesmaids wear?My bridesmaids wore the same dress in a selection of Autumnal colours (winter green, purple, plum and charcoal grey). Our two nieces were flower girls wearing gold to match the bridesmaids/my accessories.
The groomsmen all wore grey suits with black shoes, while the groom had a slightly longer grey suit jacket with braces and brown shoes. Our nephew was a page boy who wore a mini version of the groom’s suit with brown shoes to match.
How did you feel that the day went as a whole? Are there any special moments/memories that you’d like to share? Please feel free to add anything else that you’d like to share about your day. Thank you!
We were really pleased with the day, most things went to plan and the things that didn’t were only minor. We both just really loved having all our friends and family altogether in one room to celebrate with us. We were able to have pictures outside despite it being October and the sun even made an appearance.
We were excited to have an impromptu night photo shoot in the grounds before the evening guests arrived! We were so impressed and thankful that we managed to squeeze this in as the photos turned out fantastic. It was also a great opportunity to have a bit of alone time to stand back together and reflect on what was (in our eyes) a perfect day! ?
