George and Jess got married at Manor Farm Barn near Bicester in Oxfordshire.  They had their ceremony in the barn, and due to having sooooo many guests who travelled from all over the world, they had their wedding reception in a tipi on one of the fields on the estate.  Dream wedding…  you all know how much I love a tipi!

Their vision was to create a relaxed day, and to have one big party, surrounded by all the people they love.  I’d say they definitely got what they wanted…


The Manor Barn is a 16th century barn surrounded by Oxfordshire countryside which you can legally get married in.  They were married by the amazing celebrant Samantha Kelsiewho made the whole ceremony super relaxed and personal.




They entertained their guests with beer and pimms, gorgeous nibbles, an acoustic musician, and a magician…. George the groom loves a magician and he LOVED this one!! In the evening they had a photo booth caravan


George + Jess stumbled across the blog post: WEDDING STYLING which connected them with the lovely Camille from A Little Je Ne Sais Quoi

They live in Australia and love travelling, and avoid going to the same place twice, so they wanted these themes running through the wedding.  The florist Mary Jane is Jess’s friends mum who she’s known since she was 11, that in itself it pretty special, not to mention how beautiful the flowers are.

“George and I laugh and laugh and laugh. I look to my grandad and late nan and they were laughing and laughing even after all those years. I have faith that if we can keep making each other laugh we’ll be happy forever.” JESS
