Cripps Barn at Halloween
Laura & Stuart
October 31st is usually known for the celebration of Halloween, but this year it also became a very special day for Laura and Stuart, who married in the picturesque venue of Cripps Barn, Cirencester.
Cripps Barn is a gorgeous 18th century Cotswold Stone Barn, hidden amongst the breathtaking countryside of Gloucestershire. The grounds at Cripps Barn are spectacular at this time of year with the autumnal colours of orange, yellow and green surrounding them.
Laura looked sensational in a vintage-styled sleeveless two piece wedding dress, delicate vintage veil and flower headband, while Stuart mirrored the essence of the season with a brown, tweed three-piece suit. All bridesmaids, pageboys and flower girls were dressed in shades of purple, complementing both the flowers and the decorations perfectly.
Laura started her day at Swinbrook Cottage in Oxon, which is a lovely space to get ready in.
Stuart was awaiting Laura in the barn, which was beautifully decorated for the ceremony, with flower baskets draped from the wooden beams, tall plants entwined with delicate lighting, and the candle-heavy stone fireplace; it was an amorously adorned scene for such an important part of their day.
There were Pumpkins scattered around the venue to keep the Halloween theme consistent throughout. Their ceremony was sweet and included some readings which led them to their ‘I do’s’ and first kiss.
Afterwards, once outside we took advantage of the new decking outside for a group shot and then we went into the woodland for their couple shots. Because of the time of year the sun was low and the colours really added to their photos.
This then led on to dinner. Cripps Barn is well known for
it’s huge BBQ and the table plan was based around the main meal.
After dinner, the guests were treated to a romantic, dimly-lit dance floor where the confetti was thrown and later, sparklers around the dancing fire, which is situated alongside the traditional woodshed nearby.
It was a beautiful day with a beautiful couple. Cripps Barn is a stunning wedding venue, oozing an informal and relaxed atmosphere. Laura and Stuart looked to be thoroughly enjoying their day and I wish them may happy returns for the future, and would like to thank them once again for letting me be a part of their wedding day.
