Relaxed and informal with a country twist – an Old Luxters Barn wedding

Hello again! I have another gorgeous wedding blog for you again this morning – Nichola and Oliver were married in April in Marlow with a reception at Old Luxters Barn. I saw their wedding on Wendy Grant’s blog and instantly knew I had to share their day with all of you when I read these words from Nichola: she said it always seems to be about the bride but it’s OUR wedding day’.

I always try to focus my blog features on couples – from real weddings to advice features and guest blogs, English Wedding is all about you BOTH! I love a wedding questionnaire completed by a groom, and my pet hate is the phrase ‘bridal industry’…

But I digress.

Today’s couple are gorgeous, creative, and very clearly head over heels in love. There are lots of lovely images by Wendy Grant Photography to share with you, and plenty of details and ideas in here for you to take away and get inspired by too. I hope you love them! My thanks to Oliver and Nichola, and to Wendy, for sharing such a fabulous wedding on the blog. Enjoy! Claire x

Tell us a little about your wedding venue styling and details:

Relaxed and informal, with a country twist – we wanted our guests to enjoy the surroundings, and the food, without having to feel too formal

Memorable wedding day moments:

The car ride from the church to the venue. It was so lovely to get time alone – neither of us could stop smiling as we drove through Marlow and down the country lanes. We were both a bit giddy!

Wedding day advice:

Do not stress. Things will go wrong – it is inevitable but roll with it. Also, give someone the job or rounding up the troops for photos! It is not that easy.

Recommended wedding suppliers:

Anna McDonald and Perfectly Groomed. Both were amazing – oh and our photographer of course! www.wendygrantphotography.com
