Real Wedding - Alice and J’s Handmade Autumn Wedding At Curradine Barns

Real Wedding - Alice and J’s Handmade Autumn Wedding At Curradine Barns | CHWV

This stunning barn wedding venue in Worcestershire was the perfect choice for this couples personalised wedding day.

“We chose to get married at Curradine Barns as soon as we got engaged. I think we started searching literally the very next day to what kind of thing we both wanted. When we saw photos of the venue and converted barn look, we knew that it was exactly what we were looking for. When we went to visit it was autumn so it was great to see how it would look on our wedding day. The colours and lights were amazing and we knew as we arrived that it was the one.” – Alice

“When it came to choosing our theme, J says that I’m ‘her Alice in Wonderland, so that’s the style we went with for the day. It started with the invites which were drawn by our very talented friend Jenn. J had an Alice in Wonderland pocket watch, which I’m sure she kept checking while eight of us were getting our hair and makeup done. We had some artwork around the venue, ‘drink me’ tags on our welcome drinks and lots of Alice-themed props for the photobooth. J is also a big superhero fan, so we incorporated this into the day too. We didn’t want our themes to be too over the top but wanted to put a part of us into our day and our guests loved all the quirks!” – Alice

“We made quite a few decorations ourselves, not only to keep costs down but also to add a more personal touch. For our favours, we had picked up plenty of stones from the beach in Bude on our recent family holiday. We wrote personalised messages on each one for all of our guests. For the table decorations, we decoupaged comic book pages onto different shoes and boots for the superhero themed tables, and pocket watches and book pages for the Alice-themed tables. We then put flowers in them and surrounded the centrepieces with candles.” - Alice

“My mum kindly bought my wedding dress for me and it was a beautiful new design from Stella York. I thought I wanted an ivory dress but the off-pink colour of my dress worked perfectly with my skin tone and when I put it on, I knew it was the one. J had a clear vision of what she wanted to wear, but it was quite tricky to track everything down. She wore the most amazing burgundy blazer by Armani, a mandarin-collared shirt to which she added a burgundy trim and buttons and a burgundy waistcoat.” – Alice

“I started the day getting my hair and makeup done with eight of our friends and family members. We then headed to Curradine Barns and put the finishing touches to our looks in the beautiful dressing room. Our ceremony was in the Granary Barn, which was a breathtaking place to tie the knot. We had live music playing from the balcony as I walked down the aisle, and with the gorgeous chandelier and windows at the end of the building, it felt almost church-like.” – Alice

“After we exchanged our vows, we had a drinks reception outside in the courtyard at Curradine Barns. The sangria flora was beautiful and we had plenty of canapés too. The food was amazing and everyone loved it. It was the perfect choice to keep the day relaxed and rustic. In the evening we had wood-fired pizzas cooked in front of our guests in the Curradine Cantina.” – Alice

“I think we would both say that our favourite moment was seeing each other when I was walking down the aisle. It felt like it was just us two in the room. Holding hands and saying ‘I do’ in front of our friends and family was such an amazing feeling and there were a lot of happy tears at the moment! If I could give any advice I would say don’t get bogged down by the little things, everything all works out on the day.” – Alice
