This Tythe Barn wedding was beautiful – and The Tythe Barn really is one of the UKs best wedding venues. Recently winning the 2020 award for Best Wedding Venue in Oxfordshire at the Wedding Industry Awards (the same awards at which we won Best Wedding Photographer 2020 for our region!) it has so many accolades that recognise just what a special venue it is. We loved working there and are proud to call ourselves a Tythe Barn Wedding Photographer. Below you will find our favourite images that we captured at this wonderful Oxfordshire wedding venue. Allex and Chris really did have the very best day ever!
What an amazing wedding! We loved bringing our unique brand of documentary wedding photography to Chris and Allex’s stunning black tie chic wedding. The styling of the wedding was perfect and so individual and personal to Allex and Chris. Gold was everywhere making the whole wedding shimmer and the tables – named after rollercoasters! – really did match the feelings of day. There were so many emotional highs – and so many happy tears – it’s fair to say this wedding was a rollercoaster!
The Tythe Barn Oxfordshire is one of the very best wedding venues we have ever had the pleasure of photographing at! If we were to be asked by a fellow Oxfordshire wedding photographer if we had any tips for Tythe Barn Wedding Photography, our answer would be simple: just enjoy this amazing venue and make the most of all the options available! The bridal suite for getting ready is beautiful, the barn itself is such a wonderful space, both large enough for a big wedding while still feeling intimate. The courtyard is a fantastic place for guests to mingle with fabulous walkways and plantation for backgrounds for wedding photography. Then the grounds offer a lovely space to accompany couples on a walk, to capture some relaxed couple shots, like we did with Allex and Chris.
As well as The Tythe Barn being so beautiful, there is a nearby church perfect for a church wedding ceremony. By nearby we really mean that – there is a gate adjoining The Tythe Barn to the church, so it is just a minute’s walk. Allex and Chris chose to have their wedding ceremony at the church and then the rest of the day back at the barn. The staff at The Tythe Barn are nothing short of amazing. They were always on hand to ensure every guest was looked after and were also so lovely to work with and ensured a coffee was never far away to keep us going – and wow, the food was incredible! We cannot recommend The Tythe Barn enough, this amazing Oxfordshire wedding venue.
Our favourite image from the day: for each blog, we choose our very favourite image from each individual wedding. We love every image we took at this wedding and have so enjoyed picking out our highlights above. But this image below, taken during the speeches, really stands out. Allex, our beautiful bride, eschewed tradition and joined more recent convention by giving a speech (we love brides giving speeches – more of this please!) It was such an emotional speech, all about her family, her little boy and of course, her new husband Chris. Allex was overcome and could not continue. Chris stood up quickly to comfort her and then they shared an intimate and natural kiss as guests clapped and cheered. We never prompt our couples to kiss – for us, one natural kiss is worth more than a hundred posed kisses on a wedding day. Because a kiss like this is real. In one single image, we have able to tell a story that Allex and Chris will look back on and remember for the rest of their lives.
