On the 14th July 2017 Simon and Ingrid held their marriage ceremony at The Great Barn in Banbury. Ingrid got ready at the barn, supported by her mother and best friend, with the talented Lucy Beesley MUA. In her beautiful wedding gown from Love Bridal, holding her trailing bouquet of white flowers, by Hibiscus Floral Design, Ingrid stood before us as a gorgeous, glowing bride.
Played in by her Step-Dad’s guitar trio The McAlleys, Ingrid gracefully walked with a beaming smile to meet Simon at the end of the aisle.
After vows were shared and tears were shed, the newly wed couple were whisked away on the ground’s buggy for their photoshoot. Our photographer captured some beautiful shots through the lush greenery and over the lilly-pad carpeted lake.
Simon and Ingrid then returned to mingle with friends and family, enjoying the delicious canopies the barn had to offer. Once the ceremony room had been transformed into beautifully decorated dining quarters, thanks to Yellow Star Designs, guests were invited to their seats for the couple’s grand entrance as husband and wife.
Like a theatre encall, the most enthusiastic round of applause that the Finishing Touch team have ever heard accompanied Simon and Ingrid into the wedding breakfast.
Heartfelt and hilarious speeches then followed, leaving the guests in tears and stitches. Provided by Kearney’s Catering, a grand three course meal was presented and guests awed over the lovely wedding cake from Marks & Spencers.
Before the sun set, the team brought the happy couple out into the corn fields for an atmospheric photo shoot, capturing the golden sun amidst the golden grains.
With a live band Blue Juice Simon and Ingrid had their first dance and were quickly joined by friends and family who certainly knew how to bogey.
Everything came into place perfectly for this wedding celebration and we are so grateful to have captured such a wonderful day.
