Outdoor Ceremonies


One of the things we’re rather proud of at The Tythe Barn is our incredibly gorgeous outdoor ceremony area.  Brides begin their walk along our beautiful ceremony aisle - our pretty garden path framed by flowers and our stunning wisteria-clad pergola and then couples get to say their vows between our magnificent barn doors (which make for some fabulous photographs).  Guests enjoy watching the whole ceremony from our rustic bench seating either side of the doors which are nice and close so there's no need to worry about guests not being able to hear what’s going on - plus, it’s recently been partly paved with gorgeous reclaimed Oxfordshire stone for 2018 so your guests don’t have to worry about what shoes to wear!

As you can imagine, we’ve seen many outdoor ceremonies take place here in all seasons. Here are just a few of our favourites.  We loved the colours in Jade and Matt’s summer celebration. The splashes of orange against the purple wisteria were simply stunning.

Getting those final details just right!  Laura, our ever-efficient Function Manager making some last minute all important tweaks!!

This couple, who chose the very talented Mark Lord Photography, also had some rather special touches during their ceremony which included a shared candle lighting to unite the families. 


This moment from Kayleigh and Rob’s big day and beautifully photographed by Benjamin Wheeler really captures everything a wedding is about – sharing your love for one another with your friends and family. 


In the late autumn the wisteria may have gone, but this leaves an intricate puzzle of intertwining vines running the ceremony aisle that have such a mysterious feel and they also come into their own at the end of your day when our couples have the opportunity to depart under our tunnel of sparklers!!

But there’s nothing quite like seeing moments like this.  Giving your daughter away is certainly a moment you’ll cherish forever.
