Tithe Barn Wedding
Ashleigh and Lucie had a Tithe Barn wedding in Petersfield, on a perfect autumn day at the end of September. It was the only venue they looked at but fell in love with it right away so didn’t need to look anywhere else. They chose a delicate theme of lilac to go with the rustic feel of the barn.
Ashleigh proposed to Lucie when they were hiking in Scotland and he popped the question near a beautiful lake. Ashleigh and Lucie are two of the warmest, kindest, most generous and special people I have come to know. Since photographing their engagement session and getting to know them, their love for each other, their friends, family and life is so apparent. When I asked them for some valuable relationship advice they said: “always listen to each other and don’t hold anything back.” which I just loved.
The morning of their wedding day I got to Lucie and Ashleigh’s new house (which they’d just bought 3 months prior!). Shannon Belle was working her magic with Lucie’s hair and make-up and the bridesmaids were doing their own upstairs. Lucie had so many friends and family pop by in the morning to wish them luck too!
The stretch limo arrived to take them to Tithe Barn where Ashleigh already was greeting their guests in his amazing floral suit!
The ceremony in Tithe Barn was relaxed and informal, with both Lucie’s brother and Ash’s best man getting to the top of the aisle and both giving Ash a huge bear hug before Lucie and her dad walked down the aisle.
Afterwards everybody enjoyed the sunshine in the grounds before heading in for the wedding breakfast. Lucie’s dad did a fantastic speech which has all of his children cringing from the get-go! Ashleigh’s speech was emotional and heartfelt and his best man’s speech might just be the funniest I’ve ever heard!
The evening brought a beautiful sunset, a fun game of Mr & Mrs and a first dance to the unusual but perfect choice of ‘I Won’t Last A Day Without You’ by The Carpenters.
I’m so sad this Tithe Barn wedding is over, it was truly amazing. Shall we do it all again?
Thank you so much for having me!
