Last time I was at Cripps Barn it rained. Not just a shower, but torrential rain from start to finish. Nice and sunny this time, and since my last visit they’ve replaced the marquee with a permanent oak-framed structure and added some heavy-duty oak decking. A huge improvement all round then!
Andrea and her entourage (most of whom, including the bride and groom, had travelled from their home in Hong Kong) prepared for the wedding at Bibury Court Hotel, before joining Richie at the barn for the ceremony which featured a violin solo by one of the guests. After the ceremony the new decking got put to full use and then everyone headed back to the new structure at the back for meal and speeches, one of which was particularly cheeky.
