Black-tie Cissbury Barns wedding

From the moment that any of our guests walked in, we wanted them to look and feel that it was Charlotte & Alex's big day. If we had to put a label on the inspiration for the day’s theme it would be classic, classy and timeless.

Charlotte & Alex

Cissbury Barns

The couple decided on the Cissbury Barns venue because it resembled Alex's parent's house. The couple both had lived there before buying their own place. Charlotte & Alex didn’t have a specific theme or particular styling they used to decorate the venue. Instead, they styled Cissbury Barns specifically to their taste. What they ended up with was a classic black tie event with lots of traditional white and green florals. Not forgetting those pale pink bridesmaid dresses that look so pretty. Pets were also at this wedding and there is a very cute shot of the couple's pet dog!

Suppliers & Styling

Charlotte & Alex were particular about what suppliers they chose for their day. The suppliers were a mix of family, companies they knew or used before and ones they were inspired by online. The hairstylist is from Charlotte’s hair salon and the backdrop decoration is from a company run by Charlotte. The mini golf hire is by Charlotte’s Dad’s company, the Rolls Royce car hire is run by a family friend, and Alex designed the stationery. The personalised mini golf set went down amazingly with the kids and all the guests. They also had a fun Prosecco tower!

Prosecco towers are a great decor idea that instantly adds elegance and glamour

Without trying to sound cliché, do your wedding in your own way and have what pleases you both. Whether it’s through styling, size, traditions or any part of the day, just do what you both want for your wedding day.
