Ashleigh and James – Stylish Modern Barn Wedding
Ashleigh and James got married September last year in Sandhole Oak Barn, a beautiful modern stylish barn. They knew that we really wanted to get married in a barn, the old beams, the high ceilings and wood floors we’re just what they both pictured at their wedding. So when they set eyes on Sandhole they were so excited that both of them had finally found that perfect combination of old and new. It had all of the beauty and charm they were hoping for but with the comfort of a modern venue and the lake was just the icing on the cake.
James and Ashleigh wanted the theme to be elegant but also relaxed, their colour scheme was light pastel blue for the bridesmaids and white with the odd splash of coral. They were aiming for the tables to look clean and beautiful but not so fancy that the guests felt uncomfortable, wanting everyone to be able to relax and enjoy themselves.
The couple didn’t want to go over the top with decorations as the barn was just too beautiful, but they laid down some beautiful flower petals down each side of the aisle. The music was very important to the couple Ashleigh walked down the aisle to “Glasgow Love Theme” from Love Actually which is her favourite film. We exited to the Beatles “Here comes the Sun” and this was all played acoustically on a grand piano in the venue.
In the evening the couple had hired a DJ from Hipswing who played “La vie en Rose” for their first dance and did a great job of taking requests all night from our guests. The had everything from Indie to Motown to Cheesy pop and everyone was catered for.
The couples favourite moments was:
“One stand out moment for us was getting photos next to the lake during the sunset. It felt as if we were in another world, all of our guests were inside, it was very peaceful and beautiful and is a strong memory we share of the day”.
