Happy Friday everyone, I do hope you have had a good week? I don’t know about you, but this week has sped by and now I am SO ready for the weekend. This weekend is all about catching up with friends. We are out at a farm tomorrow day with some friends from school, and then tomorrow night we actually have a night out planned. Our friends have invited us for an evening BBQ along with another couple, so just 6 of us at a socially distancing BBQ, while Dexter has his first sleepover at Nana’s house for months!! He is so excited and so are we!! Then Sunday we are meeting up with another family for a day out. All very exciting! Back to today and I have this super cute, simple rustic barn wedding to share with you. Stephanie and Neil held their beautiful barn wedding last spring and were so lucky with the weather, the sun shone and the colour scheme of pale blue and white looks gorgeous against the stone walls. Big thanks to Murray Clarke for the lovely images.

A perfect day in a beautiful place surrounded by all our favourite people.

Stephanie and Neil were married on 27th April 2019 at Cissbury Barns in Worthing, West Sussex. ‘As soon as we saw the venue we loved it. The barns were so beautiful and it was surrounded by woodland. It also helped that it was very close to where we both grew up so made it ideal for family and friends, we had 110 guests. We booked the venue around 18 months in advance and then started the rest of the planning about 10 months before the big day.’

Get To Know The 4Cs

The “Four Cs” stand for cut, carat, clarity and color. Understanding these factors will help you determine the best diamond for your buck. The cut refers to how much it sparkles as the shape of the cut is done with particular parameters in mind so the facets interact with light for maximum sparkle. Carat refers to the size or weight of the diamond. On average, an engagement ring diamond is one carat or 200 milligrams. Clarity deals with the imperfections of the diamond as most stones have flaws. The smaller, fewer and less visible the flaws, the more expensive the diamond will be. Colors refer to the spectrum of shades the diamond comes in and is ranked on a scale from D to Z. D is no color and is one of the rarest while Z is visibility yellowish. There are also other colors like pink, yellow and chocolate. A good rule of thumb is the more saturated the color, the more valuable the stone.

Christopher and Chad’s ‘Eclectic English Charm Meets Southern American’ Barn Wedding in Oxfordshire by MT Studios

Today I am taking you to Oxfordshire for the rather splendid wedding of Christopher and Chad. These two grooms wanted a rustic themed day and Lains Barn  was the perfect option for them. This stunning barn venue meant they could hold their ceremony and reception in the same place making it a much simpler and fuss free day. They both went for tweed suits which added a real country feel to the day, and the barn itself looked absolutely gorgeous. I love the cake, which highlights their love of running and the beautiful photos from MT Studios.

Our wedding was an eclectic mixture of English charm, with a dash of ABBA, some southern Americanisms, and fun. The day itself was surprisingly relaxed and flew by quickly.

Christopher and Chad were married on 9th August 2019 at Lains Barn, Wantage, Oxfordshire. ‘We both had either attended or were attending Oxford at the time of the wedding, and consequently, wanted a venue that was close to the University. In addition, we were both keen for a rustic theme. We had 90 guest for the ceremony with an additional 30 for the reception. We began organizing the wedding a year in advance, starting with the more impactful decisions such as where the venue would be located, the number of guests, creating save-the-dates, and who would be our respective groomsmen. Once we knew who to expect and where the venue would be, everything else fell into place.’
