A hop over the river for a pretty Devon wedding at The Oak Barn

Grab yourself a cuppa and settle down with Totty and Luke’s lovely Devon wedding story. Such a gorgeous venue and I absolutely adore their gorgeous ‘golden hour’ sunset couple portraits, sooo pretty!

As always, thanks so much for sharing, guys!

Here’s the day as described by bride Totty, with photographs by the fab Thomas Frost Photography.

We were married at The Oak Barn (Devon) which had accommodation attached. The morning of the wedding, I woke up there with my  mum and bridesmaid, and had breakfast with the Luke’s family who were also staying there.

The venue is hidden in the countryside of Devon and provided the cosy atmosphere for our little wedding.

Despite feeling very relaxed I was ready about two hour s early, which gave me time to sit and chat with family and friends.

While we were relaxing, Luke was getting ready with his Dad who was also his best man.

The venue was left free for us to decorate as we wished. We made most of the decorations ourselves and decided on a rose gold, light pink and cream colour scheme. We made a blanket of hanging stars and had fairy lights everywhere. We used a lot of hessian and lace and made candles and flowers the main feature of the tables. A friend made a wonderful old sheet music piece, which hung on the far wall of the barn, above where we said our vows. The overall theme was Paris (as that’s where we’d got engaged), so we used a vintage map for the table plan and had tourist attractions for the table names. Overall it was a gorgeous handmade DIY wedding.

My most memorable moment would have to be walk ing back down the aisle and seeing all the faces of the people we love smiling back at us. We chose the perfect song for us, ‘Feel the Love’ by Rudimental, and it set the tone brilliantly. We danced our way to the reception.

Tom was absolutely fantastic as our photographer. He brought the day together seamlessly and was wonderfully jolly despite the freezing weather. The photos are beautiful and I am in the middle of creating a wedding book, but it’s so hard to choose which to include as I love them all. He was incredibly professional and we hardly knew we were having our photos taken…great for a couple who aren’t particularly comfortable in front of a camera. We would recommend Tom wholeheartedly, a lovely guy with fabulous skills.
