A Modern Bohemian Barn Wedding as well as an Outdoor Ceremony

  • This may be a wedding Alex. Ashley works in popular product development, and Alex is a procurement manager, which happy couple was married around 29 June 2019 in the beautifully restored, near Cheltenham.

    Ashley looked spectacular in her dress, using its intricate yet sheer Guipure lace bodice, mid-back edged with sparkling stones, along with a dramatic illusion lace train.

    "As we're not traditional, also it was not a church service, I didn't desire to be conservative with my dress. I always wanted a very fitted dress by had an open back, and I loved the tattoo lace and exactly how it hugged my curves. I also loved the cut-away lace around the train."

    Alex wore a blue suit having a subtle check pattern, a contrasting light grey waistcoat, a white shirt, and a blush pink tie from Cheltenham outfitters.

    First on the aisle were the couple's two smart pageboys in outfits from, their Flowergirl inside a lovely pink dress, as well as their dog Kenzie. The bridesmaids followed in pretty blush bridesmaid dresses, and shoes.

    Ashley and Alex decided to hold their ceremony outdoors within the venue's courtyard, which made for a beautiful, sweeping 'aisle' walk on the garden stairs. Click

    "I have always loved the thought of getting married outside, and that we based our venue choice around somewhere that might be flexible using the unpredictable UK weather, and also to walk down some stairs towards the altar. From there we knew we wanted a very relaxed, fun atmosphere, having a lot of floral decors. I love mixing pastels, boho, and modern looks."

    "We met whenever we were 14 throughout a student exchange program in France. I'm Canadian, and after keeping in contact through all of the years, I finally traveled to the UK this year to visit Alex, and we have been together since. We were officially married in May 2014 at Cheltenham Registry Office, as well as in 2017 chose to start planning our wedding."

    "We wanted delicious, slow-cooked meat shared on serving boards on the table, and had a very hard time finding many caterers that do this, but smashed it! We had a lot of comments afterward about how exactly great the meals were, plus they came back for everyone's seconds so no one felt awkward about sharing."

    "Our first dance ended up being to Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol. Alex got me into Snow Patrol, and we bonded over their music as teenagers, so it's very sentimental to us. I found our band, Tux Fizz on Instagram and loved their style."

    "I always saw videos of these getting involved using the crowd, which I think is an incredible way to get more and more people up around the dancefloor. Chris, the lead vocals performed in the ceremony, throughout the reception drinks, played keys during the marriage breakfast, and also the rest from the band joined for that evening."

    Words of Wedded Wisdom

    "My parents' contribution is undoubtedly the main reason I was able to possess our wedding, so I desired to set as realistic of the target as I could, in the beginning, knowing things would appear. When we wrote the budget we decided that my parents’ contribution would cover the large spending like the venue and also the catering, and now we would purchase everything else. We started a spreadsheet having a budget for every category and my aim ended up being to come in under budget on each target set to permit room for all those unexpected things."
