Vintage Gunne Sax dress that I bought off ebay. Such a beautiful field matched my dress perfectly. Shame my hair got in a mess 🙂


The Tithe Barn in Hampshire

Set in the beautiful countryside, I had pleasure in visiting this stone barn last September for my close friends wedding.

I took the train from Waterloo to Petersfield and then got a taxi from the station to the Barn. I had to get up very early on a Sunday to make sure that I got there on time, but it was definitely worth the commute, not just because my friend was the first in our group to get married, but also the location itself was very picturesque. The wedding was made more enjoyable by the fact that the weather was superb, an unexpected surprise considering it was in September.

The couple hired out the barn for a Hindu wedding ceremony. The interior was grand and modern, and they had a great big bathroom which provided lots of space for me to change into my sari 🙂 There was also an adjacent meadow, and car parking available for over 80 cars.

I’d definitely recommend this as a wedding venue, absolutely gorgeous…
