We enjoy working at the Tithe barn wedding Dorset wedding venue and loved Natasha and Bradley’s wedding day. A summer wedding with garden in full bloom saw us capturing a day full of fun, with a Lego bride and groom, flower meadows, sunset and an amazing wedding band.
We battled through scarily heavy rain on this Tithe Barn Dorset wedding morning until we were close to Dorchester where it finally stopped. This time we got to see some of the beautiful countryside cottages within the Symondsbury Estate.
Symondsbury Estate Wedding Bridal Preparations
First stop was Bilshay Farmhouse. Here we found Natasha and her bridesmaids getting ready. Cat Mutter wedding make up professional and all round good sport was busy working her magic. Natasha’s dress hung upstairs while stunning bouquets of amazing smelling flowers arrived from West Dorset Wedding Flowers.
With makeup done it was time to work some flowers into the wedding hair. The father of the bride had time to have a moment to himself looking out over the view from the cottage. The bridesmaids were in charge of refreshments and once Natasha was in her dress there was just time for mimosas before they headed for the Tithe Barn.
Symondsbury Estate Wedding Groom Preparations
Meanwhile, at Crepe Cottage I found Bradley and his team of groomsmen all suited in blue. Bradley helped preparations, ensuring that everyone’s tie was correct before accessorizing with his watch and tie pin. Wanting to make sure that his groomsmen knew what time it was Bradley gifted his groomsmen silver engraved pocket watches. Bradley also gave gifts to his parents before we all left in convoy for the Dorset barn wedding venue.
Tithe Barn Dorset Wedding Civil Ceremony
Once the gents had arrived at the barn it was time to add some final touches to the decorations. This done, they began to welcome guests as they arrived.
Once most had taken their seats Bradley took his place front and center.
Natasha arrived accompanied by her father who walked her down the aisle. The happy couple then made their promises to one another and exchanged rings.
After signing the register we gathered all the guests outside. They lined the path armed with confetti of orange and red coloured petals which showered down on Natasha and Bradley as they entered the garden.
Tithe Barn Dorset Wedding Reception
In the summer sun of the garden many of the guests were able to congratulate the newly weds. Bride, groom and guests enjoyed a selection of tapas, rather than the traditional canapés. We stole the the still beaming couple away for some photographs among the wild flowers before returning them to the barn.
Wedding breakfast was called and everyone made their way back into the barn. The new Mrs and Mrs were cheered and applauded as they entered. Everyone enjoyed a wedding breakfast supplied by Dorset Fine Dining.
After enjoying our food we took the two custom Lego characters that the bride and groom had gifted each other for a little photo shoot of their own in the garden!
Tithe Barn Dorset Wedding Speeches
Following on from the meal were the wedding speeches. First up was the father of the bride who gave an emotionally charged speech which had many guests in tears. Next up was the groom himself who gave many words of thanks to everyone involved in helping prepare for the day. Finishing things off were Bradley s two best men, who with the aid of a poem they had crafted had the whole barn in rapturous laughter.
Wedding Evening Reception And Entertainment Photos
Wedding guests enjoyed the evening sunshine as evening guests started to arrive.
Everyone gathered for the cutting of the cake supplied by Angel Cake Company followed by the first dance.
The band Ruby and the Rhythms kicked of their first set and wasted no time it getting the dance floor bouncing with some high energy numbers. In-between the band’s sets we were able to capture some shots of Natasha and Bradley against the evening’s sunset sky.
The band finally brought the evening to a close there leaving one last event. The happy couple’s sparkler exit. We pulled this off with the smallest of fuss and left the happy couple to say their goodbyes to friends and family.
