Swoon, it’s Chloe & Adam’s rustic themed Fison Barn Earth Trust wedding in Wittenham, Oxfordshire. When I met Chloe & Adam last year, they told me their hopes for the day, that they wanted to put their own touches to the wedding. They talked about their copper colour scheme and that they would be making lots of items for the wedding. Adam is a plumber so was tasked with creating some fancy copper centrepieces for the tables and that was just the beginning!
They both enjoy walking up the clumps in Wittenham so the Earth Trust was a natural choice for their wedding venue and what with the stunning surroundings, it was a breathtaking view over the vale. Chloe got ready at home and asked for me simply to capture her details before moving on to church to meet up with the boys. Her stunning dress was by ASOS with a veil by Catherine Dean. Chloe & her Mum went to choose the flowers from the amazing Green & Gorgeous and did their own handmade bouquets with them.

Chloe & Adam had their ceremony nearby at St Peter’s Church in Little Wittenham. The church itself is tucked away at the bottom of the village with views into the countryside. I met Adam and his brother who looked like real country gents in their suits by Brook Taverner. Soon excited guests started to arrive and fill the pews before Chloe’s bridesmaids arrived in their beautiful pastel gowns. Chloe arrived at the church with her Dad in a fabulous vintage Fiat 500 from Latifah Estates. After squeezing out of the teeny tiny car there was just time for a couple of photographs before the ceremony.
Afterwards Chloe & Adam wanted to go down to the river so we took a short walk to the beautiful bridge for some photographs before making our way back to church for the getaway. All the guests had parked up at the barn so walked back behind the wedding car which was a really lovely moment.

Once back at the barn, guests enjoyed drinks, canapés and garden games in the courtyard before a welcome speech by Chloe’s Dad. The barn was decorated beautifully and the personal touches they had added were gorgeous, especially the hand embossed copper name tags for each guest (somebody must have had serious hand ache after that!) and the centrepiece for the top table. The wedding breakfast was a relaxed affair with an amazing BBQ for the guests and speeches after the main course so that guests could them go outside and enjoy the ice cream bar and games.
It was a truly beautiful wedding to be a part of, here are some of my favourites from the day.
