LIZZIE + ANDY’S FUN AND RELAXED BOTLEY HILL BARN WEDDING

 

This Botley Hill Barn wedding was extremely special. Something that the pandemic has taught us is that celebrations can happen any way you would like them. Like many other couples in the last two years, Lizzie and Andy had their original wedding plans derailed. They were married in a micro ceremony during the pandemic and decided to celebrate with a huge party.  They had always planned a wedding at Botley Hill Barn, but this was a chance to do things a little differently.

 

A Uniquely Constructed Botley Hill Barn Wedding 

 

As a couple they felt that the vows they had already taken together were special enough. So they were to have all the elements of a wedding, but without the ceremony. Lets call it a deconstructed wedding day! Lizzie and her bridal party got ready in the suite above the ceremony area. The room was filled with laughter and champagne. Lizzie was the calmest bride, taking in all the moments with her friends and family. As there was to be no ceremony, Lizzie and Andy decided to have a first look as Lizzie was to be wearing her original wedding dress that Andy had not seen.

I LOVE a First Look between Couples!

 

It may have immigrated over from the United States. But the first look tradition is one that can stay in my opinion. It gives you time together away from the hundreds of eyes at a ceremony. Before a ceremony you have time to get your wedding portraits done and then you are still able to enjoy the whole of your reception without interruption! Win win, in my opinion. After a really wonderful first look, Lizzie and Andy were able to enter into Botley Hill Barn wedding in a fun and traditional way. Through a confetti line (which is one of my favourite parts of a day)! After their entrance there was still time for group photographs, speeches and dinner and one hell of a party!
