Bride and groom kiss while signing the register after their ceremony

Yasmine and Richard were looking for an informal and relaxed setting for their special day and when they first saw Curradine Barns, they knew it would be the perfect place to tie the knot. They loved the natural and simple style of the venue – a perfect blank canvas for the two to personalise in their own way.

“Curradine Barns was simple yet elegant and met all our big day needs,” explains Yasmine. “We were particularly excited about the menu too and knew that all our guests would love it.” – Yasmine

The theme and styling

With its blank canvas appeal, Yasmine and Rich were able to do pretty much anything in terms of wedding styling. The pair decided on an Arabian Art Deco-themed affair in colours of burgundy, navy, turquoise and gold. Statement décor included gold sequined table runners and Moroccan lanterns filled with flowers. They also added a few DIY touches of their own, including white feathers, dipped in gold glitter, personalised photo coaster favours, handmade light-up letters and a world traveller-inspired table plan.

The dress

Yasmine dressed to impress in a glamorous full ball gown with a corseted top and sweetheart neckline. For that Arabian touch, she added an embellished crystal belt and coloured gem embellished shoes from ASOS. Her wow-factor look was completed by her four bridesmaids, dressed in jewel tones of navy blue and turquoise, while her groom dressed in black and accessorised with a bow tie and pocket square in burgundy.

Big day celebrations at Curradine Barns

Yasmine and Richard enjoyed a whole day of celebrations at Curradine Barns. They not only had their ceremony and wedding reception at the venue, they also stayed the night in the Honeymoon Suite.

The couple’s majestic ceremony took place in Curradine’s Granary Barn and was followed by a celebratory raspberry Bellini outside in the sunshine. The drinks reception, which was part of the Premier Package, also featured mocktails, beers and canapés, including truffle oil and fine chive tartlets, grilled sirloin beef and mini fish and chips.

After wedding drinks

The wedding breakfast was just as impressive with traditional and vegetarian options to delight everyone. The couple opted for a starter of seared scallops, a lamb main and a trio of desserts, including crème brûlée, baked treacle sponge and chocolate torte. The vegetarian menu included individual filo tarts, a veggie risotto and the same puddings. A cheese board followed and delicious Turkish mezze served come evening.

After wedding meal

The couple’s evening celebrations revolved around great entertainment. A live band provided the music (as did Richard sporadically throughout the night) and homemade photo booth ensured laugh-out-loud fun. In fact, the pair made their photo booth themselves, designing their own backdrop inspired by an Arabian scene.

Memorable moments

There were so many unforgettable moments – the ones Yasmine remembers the most were all those comedy errors.

“During the ceremony, my eight-month-old nephew decided to get vocal. When the registrar asked if there was any reason why we should not be wed, he decided to laugh.

“ My dad also decided to do his best to embarrass me during his Father of the Bride speech. He showed all our guests a blown up picture of my face, which my brother-in-law had laminated. The photo was of me with puffy eyes and a red face. I’d just had an allergic reaction, so it wasn’t the most flattering picture to share on one of the biggest days of my life!” – Yasmine
