I really love a Christmas wedding, especially when the couple are so willing to embrace the season and make it a part of their day. Everyone is in a festive mood and it only adds to the atmosphere. Yvette & Ben were married at Brill Church and had their reception at the stunning Tythe Barn. It was rather a foggy and atmospheric day, a stark contrast to the day before. Yvette got ready at home and when I arrived at the beautiful Old Dairy it was a hive of activity.
Hair was by Jon Russell of Bicester and Yvette wore a beautiful hairpiece by Miranda Templeton. Make up was by Frankie Jackson. Yvette was surrounded by her Mum and sisters and Ben’s children and everyone was on hand to ensure the bride looked immaculate and to steady any nerves. There was a particularly beautiful moment between Yvette and her Mum. Yvette’s dress was by Suzanne Neville.
I caught up with the boys at The Pheasant in Brill where they were having a pre-ceremony pint for a bit of Dutch courage and then moved on to the Church. They had dressed the church beautifully with fairy lights and lanterns which only really became apparent when everyone came out of church. I love that they had set their dress code as black tie, everyone dressed to their best. Yvette arrived with her son in a vintage Rolls Royce by Regency Carriages. He also gave her away, which I thought was really beautiful.
It was already dark when they came out of church and we quickly left to go to the Tythe Barn as the temperatures dropped. On arrival guests were greeted with champagne and canapes and mingled in the milk shed before being summoned for dinner.
Yvette and Ben had chosen to have two long tables which looked absolutely beautiful with the candles and pine cones to go with the Christmas theme. They had their speeches before dinner so that everyone could relax and enjoy the food. After dinner they had a sparkler exit back to the milk shed for coffee before dancing the night away to DJ Rory and fun in the photo booth by Capital Booths. Thank you for asking me to capture your special day.
