David & Georgie- Hyde Barn wedding

Hyde barn is a beautiful place to host a wedding being in the heart of the Cotswolds. Its a brand new venue and its an absolute pleasure to photograph weddings there. With the lovely Cotswold stone barn and surrounding fields we were spoilt for choice when choosing a back drop for the photos.  

They got married in Lower Slaughter at St Marys church which is just around the corner. We stayed there for a while afterwards to get some pretty photos in the village and obviously go for a paddle in the stream too! The perfect setting for Georgie and Davids big day.

Laura & Jeremy – Eastington Park Wedding

Laura & Jeremy were ever so lucky to have their wedding ceremony outside. It was hit or miss with the weather with a few grey clouds lurking but at the very last minute, whilst I was photographing all the girls getting ready, we could see the boys carrying chairs down to the bottom of the garden. Such a pretty setting!

Eastington Park is a stunning place to hold a wedding. Its fairly hidden away but when you come down the long driveway and spot it in the distance you know why its a great choice to celebrate your wedding day here.

From a photography point of view (obviously!) you’re spoilt for choice!

Sarah & Lee- Westonbirt Arboretum wedding

I had my fingers and toes crossed for good weather on this wedding! Sarah & Lee got married at the beautiful Westonbirt Arboretum- which by the way, you should go and visit with a nice picnic because its just GORGEOUS!

Sarah got ready at a lovely barn conversion called ‘Dovecote Barn’ which is just down the road from the arboretum so it was perfect. A very Cotswold wedding all round with croquet be played on the lawn and the beautiful glass house for the ceremony, set amongst the trees. We were so lucky that the pretty pink Magnolia was still there, against the blue sky it just looks dreamy and it smelt amazing!

These two love the outdoors a great deal so to have a wedding set in a gorgeous forest was just ideal. We even got to see an air ballon taking off during the wedding breakfast. 

I really wish Mr and Mrs West all the very best in their adventures together!

Catherine & Laurie- Cripps Barn Wedding

Catherine & Laurie both live in London but chose to have a Cotswolds country barn wedding at the GORGEOUS Cripps Barn. Catherine and the girls stayed at The Swan Hotel in Bibury the night before which is a very short distance away from Cripps, whilst the boys got ready at The Four Pillars Hotel by the Cotswolds water park.

The weather wasn’t too kind to us but that didn’t by any means dampen the mood! With music, conversation and drinks flowing the day was as perfect as ever. Catherine and Laurie are a lovely, lovely couple and it really was fab to be a part of their day.

Rebekah & Stuart – Kingscote Barn Wedding

Such a pretty wedding on a rather cold day but it was so fab we missed the rain!

Rebekah got ready with her bridesmaids in the beautiful bridal suite at The Close Hotel in Tetbury. I think you’ll agree that her dress is absolutely stunning!

Rebekah and Stuart met for their ceremony at St Johns the Baptist Church in Randwick, Stroud, about a 20 minute drive away. Here I met the boys , who all seemed to be having a right laugh meeting all the wedding guests.

The Camper van they’d hired for the day was personalised with there names on- Such a great idea! This is how they arrived at the gorgeous Kingscote Barn which won best wedding venue at the ‘Wedding Industry awards 2013′

Such lovely, lovely family and friends and an absolute pleasure to spend the day with. Heres a little taster of their day.
