One thing that was a must for Hannah and Gareth’s wedding was a rustic style barn venue – to complement their autumnal wedding theme. Even though there were a number of barn wedding venues on the couple’s shortlist, it was Mythe Barn that won over the pair – providing the perfect setting for their wedding.
Keen to dress for her autumnal wedding theme, Hannah opted for a seasonal-inspired wedding gown. Her dress was harvest in colour and made from lovely lace – the perfect complement to the rustic wedding barn. Gaz dressed to impress too in a dark grey suit with mint tie and pocket square to match Hannah’s three bridesmaids.
“In the run up to the wedding, I joked with Gaz that my dress was brown – so he was pleasantly surprised when he saw me on the day.”
The season was also the inspiration for the couple’s décor. As the Barn was already rustic in style, the pair needed to add little detail of their own. Instead, they kept to simple details including scattered oak leaves down the aisle and on tables.
Hannah and Gareth tied the knot in a civil ceremony at Mythe Barn. Hannah and her bridal party arrived in two camper vans ready to meet Gareth at the end of the aisle. The couple’s ceremony was romantic and relaxed – with Gareth’s nerves getting the better of him during the vows. This only added to the light-hearted feel of the day though, as all their wedding guests laughed.
“Gareth said his vows slightly incorrectly and had to start over again. It was definitely a comedy moment of the day!”
With the formalities of the day over, the pair went on to celebrate with a wedding reception at Mythe Barn. The wedding breakfast was a particular highlight and included a leek and potato soup starter, roast chicken main and a dark chocolate torte with white chocolate sauce.
“The dessert was perfect for chocoholics like us!”
It wasn’t just the wedding menu that impressed, so did the evening’s celebrations with a delicious Asian-inspired feast and fun polaroid booth for guests.
“We just wanted everyone to be relaxed and to have a good time. With the help of our polaroid photo booth stand this was a success!”
Hannah also surprised guests with a father-daughter dance to My Girl, by The Temptations, after a first dance with Gareth to the Friends theme tune, I’ll Be There For You.
“Considering my dad has two left feet he did a pretty awesome job.”
When we asked Hannah and Gareth about Mythe Barn and what they thought of their day here, they told us:
“Mythe Barn was perfect for our day. It was modern yet rustic and open yet cosy. We just wish we could do it all over again!”
