Tom and Liz were married at St Peter’s R C Church Cirencester and reception followed at The Barn at Upcote Cheltenham, 5th October 2019
Our day started when we arrived at Liz’s family home nr Cirencester for bridal preparations. Liz was preparing for the wedding with her Bridesmaids, it was a lovely chilled morning with lots of chatter and anticipation for the wedding! Once hair and Make Up was beautifully styled it was time for Liz to step into her gorgeous dress. Bridesmaids were fabulous with assisting and had a glass of fizz waiting once Liz was ready.
Tom was busy greeting guests as they arrived at the Church for the ceremony, soon everybody was seated and awaiting the arrival of the bride. The bridesmaids led the way down the aisle for the bride who followed with her dad by her side, an emotional moment for the bride but tears soon turned to smiles when she saw Tom for the first time. The ceremony was lovely and included readings from family and friends. The blessing of the rings was met with gasps from the congregation as the rings was dropped by the vicar! But after a few giggles the ceremony continued with the giving and receiving of the rings and of course the wedding vows. The official paperwork was signed and the newlyweds celebrated with a kiss before walking up the aisle as husband and wife. Confetti was thrown and hugs and kisses were given before the party headed to the Barn at Upcote for the wedding reception.
The Barn at Upcote is a gorgeous stone barn situated near Cheltenham with beautiful scenery all around, as you arrive and drive along the track to reach the barn there is nothing but Cotswold views, a wonderful setting for a wedding. Luckily the weather was great for an Autumn wedding and guests could enjoy the drink reception on the lawn and while they enjoyed a glass of bubbles the newlyweds went for a little walk for their bride and groom portraits and a few family photos too.
The wedding breakfast room was dressed with beautiful jars of flowers and candles on each and every table, Tom & Liz used a travel theme for their seating plan, each table named after a place important to them. Before heading inside the barn for the wedding breakfast the newlyweds walked though a tunnel of bubbles. Once everybody was seated for the meal it was time for the speeches, the Father of the Bride, Groom and Best Man each said a speech and all were filled with lots of emotion, especially laughter!
Evening celebrations started with sparklers for each and every guest to enjoy and have some fun, then the cutting of the cake took place. The Barn was filled with each and every guest as they circled the dance floor ready for the first dance, Tom and Liz took to the dance floor for their first dance which was a special routine. Soon after they were joined by family and friends to dance the night away!
Congratulations Tom & Liz! What a wonderful wedding day, we enjoyed being a part of it and wish you both all the love and happiness for the future.
