Italian Vineyard Rustic Wedding at Cripps Barn

Nicola & Matt: We always knew we wanted to get married in some kind of barn and Cripps Barn was their absolute favourite. They found it through a friend who lives near Cirencester. After also looking at Cripp’s sister barn close by we made the decision to go with more the more traditional looking barn. Italian Vineyard type of wedding. They loved the rustic, relaxed look. They got inspired by hours of Pinterest, Instagram and of course RMW!!! Nicola loves flowers, so she always knew this was going to be a huge part of her wedding. She chose lots of greenery, blush pink roses and pampas grass. We had the most amazing florist Jo at Issy&Bella.

Wedding Cermeony

They had friends that sang and played the guitar in the ceremony along with an incredible ukulele song that was written specifically for Nicola and Matt about their journey and life together. For their daytime entertainment, they had the most insane band ever. ‘Super Tenants.’ They had everyone up on their feet and even on chairs during the reception. For their evening entertainment, they had ‘Tru Groove’ - an amazing soul band who play any style you want.

First Dance

Matt and Nicola currently perform in the London’s West End. Nicola is in ‘Chicago the Musical’ and Matt plays Aladdin in ‘Disneys Aladdin The Musical. So, the entertainment was at the top of Nicola and Matt’s priority list. So as performers, of course, they had to come up with something entertaining, their first dance was ‘This Will Be’ by Natalie Cole and luckily they have the most amazing, talented friends who helped choreograph something special.


Nicola and Matt are not only lucky enough to have talented performers as friends but also their photographer Becky Lee is a very close friend. Working for Studio_m they knew they were in good hands and cannot recommend Becky enough. Every single picture she captured was exactly what Nicola and Matt wanted from their day.


Our wedding budget was £30,000, however, in reality, it was around £40,000.
