Today I am thrilled to share this beautiful rustically inspired Festive wedding shoot with yellow, purple and burgundy details set at The Great Tythe Barn in the Cotswolds.
Maddy says of the shoot…
At this turbulent time your mind wants to become creative, and through this rustically inspired Festive wedding shoot that creativeness was given the opportunity to spread its wings.
The Cotswolds is a hot bed for amazing creative artists in the wedding industry, an industry that is welcoming, kind and ever evolving.
Myself and Sophie TC. Photography came together wanting to spread some Christmas joy, not only bringing in the Christmas feels but also showcasing the talents of these up and coming businesses.
The setting was The Great Tythe Barn, a stunning Grade II listed, C16th Cotswold stone barn which is the focal point of the Estate which is surrounded by former farm buildings, now transformed into accommodation for up to 90 guests.
Within the grounds, and paces from the barn, are 10 self-catering cottages, 12 Bed and Breakfast rooms, and The Tythe House.
Sympathetically restored, this historic Tythe barn retains many of its original features such as exposed stone walls and wooden oak beams whilst incorporating 21st Century comforts.
For the styling the team wanted to create a look that was simple and rustic with a main focus on beautiful details and festive look but not over Christmassy tones.
The shoot featured a real couple, Jess and Lauren who are actually already wed.
Sophie, the photographer is quite new at photography but loves making memories for people, and more than anything wants to get stuck into more weddings.
As well as coming up with the concept for the shoot, as a make up artist too, I wanted to create gorgeous natural make up looks for our two brides, adding a touch of winter glamour, with hair styled by Cotswold Hair
The stylish stationery suite was created by Blackbird and Blossom. Meryl has worked on a few of her friends wedding projects, and from this hobby she is keen to pursue her craft further.
Florist Lynne Jesset created some gorgeous arrangements too with roses, and thistles amidst other glorious blooms
Cherish Cakes by Katherine Edwards makes the most outstanding clean styled cakes, and the stunning buttercream cake with edible petals was right on theme.
Christmas weddings are always beautiful with the seasonal styling projecting warmth and cosiness, and if there was ever a time for romance and celebration then that is the festive season.
