Having attended over 30 weddings together, during the 10 years they’d been together, Emma and Lee wanted a wedding venue that was different from all the rest. A venue that had real wow factor…
After stumbling across Mythe Barn, in Leicestershire, Emma and Lee were won over. They knew their guests would have an amazing time at the venue and it would help them leave that lasting impression of their day. The staff were another huge factor in choosing Mythe Barn. The couple knew they’d ensure everything ran smoothly and that everyone enjoyed an unforgettable day.
Another selling point of the Leicestershire barn was its unique style. Emma and Lee wanted to channel the 1920s vintage look on their wedding day and the venue’s style and décor was in keeping with their theme. Emma added a few extra wedding touches with candelabra centrepieces, accentuated with a pretty flower arrangement. An impressive arrangement was also made for the top table – wowing the pair’s wedding guests. “While I loved our centrepieces, I probably would have made them bigger with hindsight,” says Emma. “I recently went to a wedding where a bigger candelabra was used with big church candles and they looked stunning,” she explains.
With a strong wedding theme in mind, Emma made sure to dress just right for the day. While her elegant, tight fitting fishtail gown was relatively simple, she went all out with her floral headpiece. “For me it was all about my headwear. I wanted to make a statement,” explains Emma. Lee looked equally stylish in a one-off navy blue suit that cost almost as much as Emma’s dress!
Getting ready on the morning of the wedding was easy. Emma took advantage of Mythe Barn’s facilities and got ready on location with her four bridesmaids. “I arrived early and took full advantage of what the barn had to offer,” laughs Emma. It wasn’t just the facilities that impressed the couple though; the wedding food was stunning too. “We had a selection of canapés that included goats cheese mousse and Parmesan crisp, and deep fried pork belly,” says Emma. “This was followed by a three course meal with a starter of pork and apple spring roll, roast rump of English lamb main, and dessert of panna cotta and balsamic marinated strawberries.”
With the hard bit of the day over, and guests well and truly satisfied after their fine feast, the evening celebrations could commence. The couple chose Bruno Mars’ Uptown Funk for their first dance – which offered a few surprises to their guests. “The first dance was a group dance with all ushers and bridesmaids. It was awesome!” smiles Emma. “Our best man had struggled with nerves during his speech and contemplated doing a runner half way through. Thankfully this didn’t happen and he even managed to hang around for the first dance. It was perfect.”
