A DIY decor delight at this Caswell House wedding in Oxfordshire. The couple had so much fun making decorations for their shabby chic styled day including handpainted palette signs, table centrepieces and table names, everything had this couple's stamp on! Making the most of the glorious sunshine, the summer wedding ceremony was held outside in the picturesque gardens of the rustic venue. The bride wore a Justin Alexander lace detail dress as she walked down the aisle with her bridesmaids who looked pretty in pink, matching the floral arrangements scattered around the venue! The whole day with all the personal details was captured by the incredibly talented and one of Rock My Wedding's recommended suppliers, Cat Stephens Photography!

What Made Our Day Unqiue

We loved making our own decorations and adding a personal touch to the venue! We hand-painted an order of the day on a pallet, made our centerpieces and table names. Some say this makes more work but we had so much fun! For me (the bride) personally the build-up to the day was so special! I had the most wonderful group of people around me this included my bridal party but also the incredible suppliers we had chosen, I feel like this has a huge impact on the day and the ladies I had by my side were truly wonderful!

Caswell House

The Oxfordshire wedding venue was the prettiest location for the shabby chic, rustic wedding. Exposed brickwork, wooden beams and gorgeous gardens were the backdrop to this gorgeous day. And the day wasn't short of sweet treats with a sweetie bar and a beautiful semi-naked wedding cake that sat on a personalised rustic cake stand which was the perfect choice for the rustic venue! Caswell House is one of our very own recommended suppliers, so we know you will love it as much as we do!
