The Tythe Barn Launton is an incredible place for wedding photography
What do I think and how do I approach The Tythe Barn Launton wedding photography? Well if the wedding photographer was a child The Tythe Barn would be a Disneyland. If you are planning to get married and considering getting hitched at one of Oxfordshire barn wedding venues, look no further. The Tythe Barn Launton is definitely one of the most beautiful barn wedding venues I have the pleasure to photograph.
About Tythe Barn Launton
As a wedding photographer, before the wedding day, I like to do my research and find out more about the wedding venue I’ll be photographing. I feel really privileged that my wedding photography business takes to one of the most incredible places all around the UK and beyond. The Tythe Barn in Launton has become straight one of my favourite places to photograph weddings. With its rural location, conveniently situated just outside of Bicester in the Oxfordshire countryside it is a perfect spot for both indoor and outdoor wedding celebrations.
I was really surprised the history of the Tythe Barn Launton goes as far as the 11th century. The stone barn with its signature thatched roof is a real showstopper. This super cool wedding venue is a family-run business providing exceptional services since 1998. The owners of the Tythe Barn Launton apart from running one of the best wedding venues in Oxfordshire also making sure they are giving back to their community. They are constantly thinking about new ways to run their wedding venue in a greener, more environmentally friendly way reducing the carbon footprint. And this selfless care really shows as soon as you enter this super cool place.
Due to the really high popularity of Tythe Barn Launton it’s not unusual they do weddings most back to back especially during the main wedding season. Somehow this doesn’t affect the quality of the service at all and each of the weddings is treated with the same exceptional care and enthusiasm.
My favourite wedding photography spot at Tythe Barn
From a wedding photographer’s point of view is a place of unlimited possibilities. “The Nook” the bridal suite feels almost like it’s been build with a wedding photographer in mind. Whilst brides with their bridesmaids getting ready we are being spoiled by all the various choices for creating those get ready photos.
The Tythe Barn – What an incredible place to photograph the wedding ceremony. Spacious Barn with plenty of space to seat even some of the bigger weddings. The directional light coming through the big window helps to create some striking images.
The Tythe Barn backyard is equally beautiful, conveniently locked between the main barn and the Cowshed, keeping all the wedding guests within the same space. Simply a perfect spot for capturing all those documentary natural moments, whether it’s during the drink reception or later on in the evening. This is the perfect place to have all those family group photos takes.
Creative Photography at Tythe Barn at dusk after sunset
And this is the time when Tythe Barn turns into every creative photographer’s playground. My photography style is to document all those precious moments as they unveil, telling the story of the wedding day in the most natural, and my own creative way. This photography cover at least 90% of the day. The remaining 10% covers all the family group photos and my signature after the dark bride and groom portraits. The biggest challenge at Tythe Barn Layton is that there is way too many choices. I could literally spend hours and hours photographing all the great spots which are on offer within and around the Tythe Barn. My favourite creative photo spots are the main Tythe Barn ( It looks particularly gorgeous after dark). The courtyard with the pergola tunnel covered by climbing plants and fairy lights. The silver birch alley in front of the Tythe Barn is simply beautiful during the day and night. The front of the barn itself makes always a stunning photo too.

Why have Lauren and Conor chosen The Tythe Barn to be your wedding venue?
“We always knew we wanted a barn wedding but felt that some barns were a bit too rustic. When we first walked into Tythe Barn we knew straight away it was the one because it had the barn feel but was still warm and cozy.”
What inspired Lauren and Conor’s décor at Tythe Barn?
Autumn and winter are our favourite time of the year and I love the rustic theme so that’s why I opted for red bridesmaid dresses and used pinecones for place names. I wanted a mix of autumnal and wintery colours so I chose lots of foliage to decorate the tables with. Traditional is not my style and being petite I decided to have a shorter dress for myself and my bridesmaids to give it more of a retro feel.
What was the best part of your wedding?
The photographer! And holding hands at the altar. We were both so nervous it was just nice to squeeze each other’s hand in reassurance.
What’s one thing you wish you would have known earlier in regards to planning?
We had a 2-year engagement so we had plenty of time to plan the wedding so we didn’t have any challenges when it came to the planning. The venue and suppliers were all so helpful and experienced so they were really good at guiding us on how things would run on the day.
Could you give a few pieces of advice for all the couples who are planning their wedding?
Remember the wedding day is about you! Everyone will want to have their say but always remember it’s about you getting married to the love of your life. Take a moment on the day to sit back and look around at all your loved ones and admire all the hard work you’ve done!
What was the most important factor in choosing your wedding photographer and why have you chosen Latzo? Latzo was recommended to us by Conor’s mum as he photographed a friend’s daughter’s wedding. I was sure that I didn’t want the traditional posed style of photography and I really liked Latzo’s documentary style, in particular, the creative photos I’ve seen at Barton Hall!
Big shout out to a very hard working and always smiling “The Tythe Barn team” as well as all the amazing wedding suppliers who worked at Lauren and Conor’s wedding.
