We picked rivington because as cliche as it sounds it was simply stunning. It was just the vibes we were after, the low lighting, the barn, the drapes, the fairy lights, just all of it.
What advice would you give anyone planning their own wedding?
Don’t stress! Enjoy all the planning & enjoy every minute of the day because it goes too quickly, everybody kept telling us to make sure we had a moment alone together on the day so we did & really glad we did because it was special watching everyone enjoying themselves & dancing etc!
We know it’s tough but if you had to pick a favourite moment from your amazing day, what would it be?
Favourite moment, wow that is hard.. we loved all of it! Getting ready before hand was so much fun, the build up and then being together at the top of the aisle was pretty special. Just all of it, dancing with everyone at night & the speeches, the confetti drop, the sparkler send off, the wedding night haha! Please can we do it again?
Congratulations Hannah & Joe, thank you for inviting us xxx R & L
“Oh my god Just watched it, I couldn’t help the tears! You are incredible. Thank you so so much. I don’t know what to say!!!

What made you choose Owen House Barn for your BIG DAY?
We wanted a barn wedding as it was in October, we really liked the idea of a venue that we could light with candles and make it feel warm and personal with autumnal colours which we managed to achieve. When we went to see Owen house for the first time we fell in love with it, it’s just got the loveliest feel to it and the staff are brilliant. They make you feel so welcome from the off and particularly Vanessa, Dan, Chris & James. I couldn’t recommend it enough!
How did Chris propose? (gushy details allowed) We were due to fly to Santorini from London so the night before We stayed in London and went to sushi samba for a meal as id always wanted to go. He then surprised me with tickets to go the viewing platform of the shard. I was none the wiser, we went up and spent around an hour looking around – what I didn’t realise was that the floor was clearing out whilst we were there! It ended up being only me and Chris, my favourite song playing, candles and flower petals on the floor and a photographer hiding round the corner! Turns out he had been planning it for 6 months & had hired the top floor of the shard out to propose! I was gobsmacked and it was just perfect.
If you had to pick a favourite moment from the whole day, what would it be? Favourite moment of the wedding, it’s so hard to pick! If I had to choose it would be walking down the aisle with my dad, seeing Chris smiling at the bottom and having everyone I love around me.
What advice would you anyone planning their wedding?
Advice – take every moment in. It’s so cliche but the day goes SO fast and it’s over before you know it. Also – hire a videographer!!! It will enable you to look back at your day and remember all of the little things you have forgotten and the things you don’t see! You spend so much time and money on one day it makes sense to have it documented so you can look back on it for years to come!!
