Fern and Jack really wanted a cool, laid-back day to match their uber-relaxed style and Owen House Wedding Barn was just the perfect venue for that with its rustic eclectic ‘shabby chic’ charm. Sitting in beautiful Cheshire countryside this stunning venue is a photographer’s dream with so many lovely, quirky places and great outdoor space.
Perfect Weather for a Perfect Day
As Fern and Jack picked mid-August for their day the warm sunny weather kept everyone outside for most of the time, right up to late evening with guests sitting on the grass chilling and chatting under the festoon lights with the night’s sky.
The bridal prep area at Owen House is tucked away at the back of the barn in a lovely well-lit, well-planned room with big mirrors, a lounge area and huge bathroom, the perfect environment for brides and their entourage to get ready.
Jack and the boys prepared for the day in the ‘man cave’ area with barber’s chair, billiard table and luckily, an ironing board and iron! Matilda, Jack & Fern’s beautiful daughter, came to keep an eye on the boys, enjoying free spins on the chair and then watching Peppa Pig on the huge tv screen whilst eating crisps….heaven!
The “I Do’s”
The Ceremony room is a lovely room with indoor windows to the stacked hay bales and unusual half doors and windows along the edge. The wooden benches and tiny entrance door add to the appeal of this lovely venue.
Jack and his 2 Best Men stood patiently at the front waiting for his bride to appear. Fern, escorted down the aisle by her dad looked stunning with her beautiful long auburn hair and fitted mermaid-style dress with long train and cathedral veil. The anticipation was too much for Jack so he turned round to watch his bride arrive at his side.
Fizz & Ice Cream
After the Ceremony it was fizz, ice cream and live music outside in the garden area with plenty of time for the guests to relax and mingle. The time soon came for everyone to take their seats for the Wedding Breakfast and for the newlyweds to make their entrance.
Dancing & Shots!
Jack and Fern had lined up a DJ and fantastic saxophonist for the evening in a very shiny outfit. The atmosphere was electric with everyone on their feet as this was a party with such great energy and amazing dance moves!
As the evening started to draw to a close we found Fern and Jack chatting with friends and having a few shots at the bar. This was an amazing day with two wonderful people and a lovely day to be a part of.
