A Spring Wedding at Hazel Gap

What’s not to love about a Spring Wedding at Hazel Gap! This place is stunning, the beautifully renovated farm barns from the outside are so unique and the inside is a great mixture of old and new – needless to say (as with all Cripps Barns) the food is amazing!!

Bridal preparations

Katie & James got ready down the road at the Ye Old Bell Hotel, Katie with her bridesmaids and mum. James with his Best Man and father in law in a separate room. Katie’s preps were very well organised, everything already laid out so there was minimal stress on the day – that’s what we like. Before long James had headed off in his Aston Martin and the cars arrived ready to take Katie.

The owl and the ceremony

Just as Katie arrived at Hazel Gap, the clouds were starting to get ominous, but no-one cared or even noticed probably as the girls went straight in to meet the registrars (who were so lovely). The ceremony was great, with some lovely readings and of course the beautiful barn owl which flew the rings down the aisle (with a slight detour to the window which we won’t mention 😄). As they signed the register it was still raining a bit but thank goodness it finally stopped and everyone was able to go outside for some good old confetti, followed by the guys from Hawks of Steele doing a ‘meet a greet’ with the barn owl and what we think was an Alaskan great grey owl!

The wedding breakfast, speeches and dancing

After some photos, drinks and canapés, it was time to head into the Oak Room for the wedding breakfast and speeches. Dinner was so tasty and we were even remembered when it came to the lovely chocolate brownies! Thanks guys! By the time it was all finished the band were already set up ready for the evening fun and the fire pits were lit ready for the marshmallows!

We had a great time with you all, Katie & James are such a lovely couple and all the friends and family were fab too! Here’s just a few of our favourites from the day, but be sure to click through to the Full Gallery at the end of the blog!! 😃
