Vintage Wedding Photography at The Tythe Barn, Launton with Karen & Rob

A VW Camper Van, homemade cakes, a precious brand new addition and lots of love

There was a huge sense of anticipation leading up to their special day.  Just days before the wedding Karen & Rob welcomed a gorgeous baby granddaughter to the world – ready to join in the fun.  Karen & Rob beamed with pride on their day.  Not only with excitement (to have their new addition to the family arrive in time was just perfect), but with pure joy that finally they were tying the knot.  I became swept up in it all I have to admit.  The Tythe Barn at Launton, near Bicester Oxfordshire looked utterly splendiferous.  Bedecked with thousands of posies of country-themed flowers, the barn really played it’s part in creating the vintage atmosphere Karen & Rob wanted for their day.  Platters of homemade cakes lovingly created by the guests made a magnificent spread and allowed family and friends to play a part.  Karen & Rob had chosen a superb VW Camper Van from Peartree Weddings named Daphne to take them from the church to the barn in style and they made the most of their time with this vintage lady.  I loved every minute spent with this wonderful couple and their friends & family.  It’s a day I’ll never forget, photography or people-wise. I wish I could’ve stayed for the cakes!  Congratulations to a very special couple, my love and best wishes to you and yours.

Civil Partnership Photography at The Tythe Barn, Launton

Sam, Heidi and their very special day

When I first met Sam & Heidi I could tell that sealing their partnership meant everything to them.   It was all very exciting and I was so delighted Sam & Heidi chose me to photograph what would be my first civil partnership.  Dresses were chosen separately and with great secrecy. On the morning of the wedding they beautified together in the stunning Dovecote at The Tythe Barn.  However, when it came to putting on the secret dresses they kissed a brief goodbye and ‘see you soon!’  Heidi and her very proud father were first to walk up the aisle where she waited for Sam to follow with her equally glowing dad.  They couldn’t hide their surprise and delight when they saw each other’s dresses for the first time.  Amazed giggles….by coincidence they’d both chosen dresses by the same designer and they complimented one another beautifully!  The Civil Partnership Ceremony was personal, magical and emotional.  The feeling of love from family and friends was so strong and their support such an intrinsic part of the celebration.

I have to say I was completely caught up in the day and spellbound by this couple. Sam & Heidi literally radiated joy and love, so many smiles and so much pure happiness.  I wish them all the very best for the future, I’ll certainly never forget their beautiful day.

Laura & Tim’s Wedding at The Tythe Barn, Launton

Beautiful people, beautiful day…

At last, the much anticipated day had arrived. I walked into the elegant Bridal Suite at The Dovecote to find Laura surrounded with her bridesmaids and knee high in more cosmetics than I’ve ever seen in one place!  Tim surrounded himself with his lads and got lost on the way to the barn.  But all was wonderful…the ceremony was full of emotion, the guest were full of merriment, the children were entertained.  However, the thing that shone through most on that chilly but dry day was the huge love shared between the gorgeous bride and groom.  I know its a huge cliche but this is truly a match made in heaven.

Kathryn & Colin’s Wedding Day

We’d made plans for a rainy, windy, cold day….just in case.  But we shouldn’t have worried, waking up on this late March morning was a joy – blue skies and gorgeous sunshine.  And talking of joy, the whole day from start to finish was full of it.  Kathryn was glowing from the moment she arrived at the Tythe Barn, Launton.  Colin waited patiently for his stunning new bride to join him in the doorway of the barn for their ceremony, their guests basking outside in the sun.

We had a fantastic time and Kathryn & Colin seemed to soak up every minute of their celebration.  It was so easy to capture the love that enveloped these newlyweds, it was in the air and all around.  Have a truly wonderful life together….

Richard & Liz’s Wedding Day

The Tythe Barn, Launton – Oh, such a perfect day

 

[slideshow id=14]

 

The anticipation had been building for weeks and finally Richard & Liz’s big day arrived on the 19th November.  I won’t beat around the bush, these two are totally bonkers. We’d had great fun mucking around at The Tythe Barn in Launton a couple of weeks before and I knew their day was going to be one to remember.  It all started perfectly with bright blue skies, chilly but gorgeous.  Liz made the rather splendid decision to stay in The Dovecote at Manor Farm next to the barn and that’s where I found her that morning, surrounded by her ladies.  Much beautifying occurred and merriment/sandwiches were had by all.  In the meantime, back at The Barn the lovely boys did a conga for me and showed off their personalised socks with pride.  The groom seemed relaxed and ready, the bride seemed relaxed and….late.  But soon she was galloping down the aisle and the rest is history, preserved with love by me and my camera of course.  This was one of those weddings where I really was sad to leave.  These lovebirds had simply invited me to photograph their wedding but as I left I felt like one of the family.  I’ll never forget this day and I wish Richard and Liz all the happiness they deserve.
