Real Wedding - Kimberley and Thomas’ Rustic Winter Wedding at Sandhole Oak Barn

Real Wedding - Kimberley and Thomas’ Rustic Winter Wedding at Sandhole Oak Barn | CHWV

This picturesque barn wedding venue in Cheshire was the perfect location for a winter wedding full of rustic charm.

“We chose Sandhole Oak Barn because we instantly fell in love with its homely feel. We both felt so comfortable there and loved that everything was in one place. We definitely wanted a rustic feel to our wedding and Sandhole provided it with a touch of elegance too.” – Kimberley

“We wanted to keep things simple and not go too over the top with a theme. Sandhole Oak Barn is such a beautiful venue, so we wanted to show this off by keeping everything else fairly neutral with a bit of a rustic feel. We made a lot of the decorations ourselves, such as milk churns and jars finished with hessian and brown ribbon, and had plenty of flowers and foliage to bring a natural feel to the day. With our February wedding date, we were unsure whether the day would be wintery or have an early spring feel, so we chose a colour scheme of navy blue, dusky pink and ivory which we thought would work for both. It turned out to be a beautiful sunny day!” - Kimberley

“My wedding dress was the first dress I tried on and I instantly fell in love with it! I loved its vintage feel and that it had a dusky pink underlay to make it that little bit different. It had beautiful detail on the bodice but a real simplicity to the skirt and I felt so comfortable in it throughout the day. Thomas and the groomsmen wore navy blue suits with braces and bow ties, and my bridesmaids were navy blue multiway dresses to tie into the colour scheme.” - Kimberley

“Before the ceremony, I got ready in the Dressing Room at Sandhole Oak Barn while the groomsmen made use of the Shepherd’s Hut. We then tied the knot in the barn before making the most of the sun and having drinks and canapés overlooking the lake. The events team took care of everything and were always there when we needed them. We didn’t have to worry about anything!” – Kimberley

“Walking down the aisle and seeing each other for the first time was my favourite moment. I loved the speeches too and also when all our guests did a sparkler send off for us! The whole day was full of fun and laughter, especially when everybody did the baby shark dance with our daughter on the dance floor!” – Kimberley
