Real Wedding - Jade and Jason’s Easter Wedding At Bassmead Manor Barns

Real Wedding - Jade and Jason’s Easter Wedding At Bassmead Manor Barns | CHWV

This magical barn wedding venue in Cambridgeshire was the perfect setting for this country-loving couple’s special day.

“We both grew up in London but having recently moved out of the city, we’ve completely fallen in love with the country! We wanted to light, rural venue and when Jason took the day off work and went to see Bassmead Manor Barns, he instantly fell in love with it. As a carpenter, he was in awe of the beautiful wooden frame and character of the Rickety Barn. I saw his excitement and we immediately arranged another viewing and booked the wedding that day! Bassmead Manor Barns is everything you imagine a country wedding to be, with beautiful surroundings, intimate barns and even the perfect place for bridesmaids and me to get ready before the ceremony.” – Jade

“Our wedding date was not only April Fool’s Day but also Easter Sunday, so we had a little nod to this with an Easter egg hunt and Easter eggs for our guests. We then decorated the venue with a flower circle as the backdrop to our ceremony, a wooden pallet wrapped in fairy lights and covered in photos of us from the past, and decorated the tables with glass vases and floating candles. In the memory of those who we lost near to the wedding, my mum and nan, we placed a single white rose on the chairs where they would have sat. It felt like a subtle but beautiful way to remember them.” – Jade

“I took all my bridesmaids, my mum and mother in law shopping for dresses one day, but just didn’t find one that was me. Feeling a little bit lost on what I wanted or what would suit me, my mum and I tried again in St. Alban’s. The first dress I tried on my mum said, ‘that’s your dress!’ but being so indecisive I tried on another four dresses. My mum asked me to try the first dress on again, and I did. I stood in the shop wearing it for about 10 minutes. She asked me if it was comfortable, was it me, did I love it… and that was that. My mum told me she was buying it right then. She loved it and I did too, and I’m so glad she was there to make the judgment for me.” - Jade

“Every Easter, we always have huge roast dinners with all the family, so we knew this would be the perfect choice for our wedding breakfast. Our starter was a smoked bacon Scotch egg, which our guests said was the best they’ve ever had, followed by roast chicken with all the trimmings and a lemon tart for dessert, with ice cream milkshakes and cookies for the kids. The team at Bassmead were amazing, we don’t know what we would have done without their fantastic organisational skills!” – Jade

“I think seeing each other for the first time was my favourite moment. It’s that special first glimpse where your excitement peaks and you think this is it – it’s our big day! If I could give any advice to future couples, it would be to make sure you take time out of the day to be alone together. It’s such a special moment to have with your new husband or wife. Also, don’t stress too much about the little details, you’ll love every minute of your wedding no matter what.” - Jade
