Ok, just give us a second to fully take in this wedding dress with slit and recommended supplier moment at The Tythe Barn. Claire & Matt wanted the day to reflect them as a couple. They even went so far as to transport their table tennis table to the venue. They incorporated lots of bright colours and utilised Rock My Wedding recommended suppliers to ensure their day was what they hoped for. They also questioned wedding traditions, keeping the ones that were important to them.

If you can get an engagement photo-shoot we would definitely recommend it as a chance to meet your photographers and get used to being in front of the camera.

Laidback, colourful, fun. We introduced things that reflected our history together. Our wedding invitations featured a drawing of the Radcliffe Camera in Oxford (where we met for our first date). We used our two favourite colours, and elements of the venue we loved. Like their milk churns as a stand for floral displays and fire pits for the evening. 


We genuinely loved every minute of it! Other than the wedding ceremony under the fairy lights, we enjoyed being handed a glass of Prosecco right afterwards. Playing table tennis in our wedding clothes, and having a quiet moment together whilst having our wedding photos taken. (With a plate of wedding canapés on standby for us)!


Don't doubt yourself and don't be afraid to do something different from the norm. The wedding should reflect you as individuals and as a couple. Guests will enjoy this so much more because they're attending to support you. Choose the things that are most important to you to pour your love and attention into, and leave the rest.

Claire & Matt ensured their day was a reflection of them as a couple. Remember, it’s always Your Day, Your Way. 

There was a lot of research into the suppliers; I'd been following our photographers on Instagram for a long time. Just because I loved their photography, and our wonderful florist was recommended by a colleague.
