Ashleigh and Matt – Outdoor Barn Wedding in Oxfordshire
This lovely couple first met at work, and seven years later, they were walking down the aisle in a beautiful outdoor wedding at Worton Hall, Cassington! If you’re looking for a barn wedding venue like Ashleigh and Matt then find our amazing list of barn wedding venues here!
Ashleigh and Matt chose their gorgeous wedding venue as it ticked so many boxes. “I liked the rustic theme, and we were keen for somewhere with onsite accommodation – Worton has a farmhouse which sleeps 21 people,” says Ashleigh. “We could also get married outside, and therefore Worton seemed the ideal place for us.” The couple tied the knot in a sunny outdoor wedding ceremony under the pagoda before enjoying a reception with their 81 day guests in the main barn.
Bride Ashleigh looked amazing in her Oleg Cassini wedding dress, while groom Matt looked dapper in a brilliant blue Ted Baker suit hired from Moss Bros. The bridesmaids wore strapless coral dresses with statement gold earrings, and carried bouquets made up of coral peonies, cream roses and gypsophila made by the bride’s aunt! Ashleigh’s bouquet featured matching flowers as well as beautiful white peonies and hypericum berries, and was made by Classic Flowers in Witney.
After the ceremony, the newlyweds and their guests enjoyed a sunny drinks reception on the lawn with an ice cream bike, before moving into the barn for the wedding breakfast. The menu was goat’s cheese salad, lamb, and chocolate mousse, and each guest received homemade chocolate tiffin as a wedding favour. “These were also doubled up as our name places as we put tags on which Matt’s sister wrote the names on using her calligraphy skills,” says Ashleigh.
For the evening reception, Matt from Visually Sound Events kept everyone dancing with an amazing DJ set, which the bride loved. “Dancing with all my friends and family in the evening was probably my favourite moment of the day!” says Ashleigh.
