We were thrilled to be invited to be a part of the floral team, at the Wedding Open Day for the Tythe Barn, on the 16th June 2019.
A gorgeous wedding venue based just outside of Bicester in Launton. The Tythe Barn is a 14th century built barn, recorded in the Doomsday books which has been beautifully restored and renovated by the Deeley family.
On your wedding day you get flexible use of 2 barns, with under-floor heating and mood lighting inside and out. The venue has capacity for up to 155 seated guests dining in the main barn / 40 in the Cow Shed, and a maximum of 220 guests for an evening reception.
The grounds are established with beautiful features including: A kissing gate, Shepherds Hut, Water troughs, Pergolas, paddock, private gardens and the old chapel, all of which make elegant spaces for photography.
In order to showcase the different seating arrangements available within the barn we set up two different dining options.
The first was set up as a long banqueting table, which ran the length of the barn. For the second we decorated several smaller tables each seating 8. You could of course mix the two together, if you wished.
We used lot’s of soft ruscus down the centre of the tables and incorporated gorgeous ink well vases with blousy white ‘Avalanche’ roses on the banquet table. We recommend 5 of our ink well vases per one of the Tythe barn tables as this creates enough visual impact. Obviously we can work with more or less to suit your budget.
On the separate dining tables we also used ruscus as a runner to create a foliage theme then we used assorted recycled glass bottles (start saving all your empties now especially if they are shaped unusually!)
These were then filled with finer, softer coloured foliage, which have great shapes and textures. These included: fountain grass, myrtle (which signifies love and a long marriage), pittosporum and eucalyptus.
The stunning images for this blog have been provided by Dearest Love Photography, a Worcestershire based wedding photography business run by best friends Jim and Kerri.
Thanks to Emma from the Tythe barn for the invitation. We hope to back again soon!
Have a great week.
