Stone Barn Wedding | Callum & Kerry

Cripps Stone Barn near Aldsworth is one of my very favourite venues – as well as serving up the most amazing barbecued food cooked on their huge indoor BBQ, for a photographer, it has everything you need. Callum & Kerry made a great choice picking this venue for their Stone Barn wedding on a hot July day.

I loved the rustic signage they had

And the boys looked great in their checked suits from Slaters – really nice to see something a bit different

Beth from Go Wild Flowers did the foliage ring and flowers – which all looked amazing as always!

Kerry arrived at Stone Barn, and the ceremony took place in the older stone barn part of the venue – a gorgeous space. Kerry was given away by her brother.

Great Tythe Barn Wedding | Izzy & Matt

Well we had all resigned ourselves to the fact that this was going to be a RAINY day at The Great Tythe Barn, and it didn’t disappoint!! The first few weeks in June this year, 2019, had been awful, so it wasn’t the only rainy wedding I photographed.

It by no means spoiled Izzy & Matt’s Great Tythe Barn wedding at ALL though – there was just a bit more running in & out doors as soon as there was a little break in the clouds to get the group photos done.

The Great Tythe Barn Tetbury, here in the Cotswolds, is such a lovely venue, inside and out, so I had no doubt that we would still manage to get some lovely photos.

Great Tythe Barn Wedding

The decorations inside the barn were so colourful – mainly thanks to Izzy’s mum & sister for making such gorgeous bunting.

Great Tythe Barn Wedding

The girls were getting ready in the main house – with the conservatory room so light & airy, it didn’t matter that it was tipping down outside!

Great Tythe Barn Wedding

There was colour everywhere – the stunning flowers were done by Daisy Belle Floral Design

There was a wonderful 50s look going on with the girls’ hair & makeup – again, such bright colours.

Hair was by Pearl’s Pinup Parlour who specialise in the vintage look.

And there was some seriously RED lipstick expertly applied, as with all the other makeup, by Katy Pheiffer.

The boys got ready in one of the cottages on site – the accomodation onsite is one of the real advantages of The Great Tythe Barn.

Matt, the groom was sporting a lovely green suit, and again, colour everywhere in the ties and handkerchiefs.

The beautiful bridesmaid dresses were from David’s Bridal

Izzy & Matt had originally planned an outdoor ceremony (and you’d have thought that would be a safe bet in June…but not in Britain!). But to be honest, I think the ceremony in the barn was just beautiful.

Great Tythe Barn Wedding

The colourful sign was made by a friend of theirs

There were some amazing singers from The Vocal Works Gospel Choir who sang before the ceremony & during the signing of the register.

Izzy & Matt walked in to the ceremony together – with the first meeting just in side the barn doors

The guests had drinks upstairs because it was STILL raining – but it did stop every now & then, and with the help of some very good Best Men & Ushers, I managed to keep taking people in & out to get the group photos done outside. The Best Men were very helpful making sure Matt’s suit didn’t get wet…

The photo below just sums up Izzy & Matt to me – they were CONSTANTLY laughing and happy, and it was such a pleasure to photograph their day.

It was also a pleasure to work with Ben from Mrs Mashup again who was doing videography – and we both had such a fun day with these two lovelies.

The barn was set up, again with so much colour, for the wedding breakfast. Everything was done by Izzy & Matt, including flowers grown in Izzy’s Mum’s garden, and the log slices borrowed from the florist!

The food was a ‘posh picnic’ created by caterers Fine Dine With Us.

Then it was time for some emotional, and very funny speeches

Cotswolds Hotel & Spa Wedding | Bethany & Ryan

Bethany & Ryan’s Cotswolds Hotel & Spa wedding was my first at this venue just outside Chipping Norton in the Cotswolds – it’s always exciting to photograph at new venues. It’s a golf course as well, and this offered a brilliant opportunity to go out on golf buggies later on for photos on the beautiful golf course.

Josie & Callum | Middle Aston House Wedding

Josie and Callum’s Harry Potter themed wedding started with Josie & her bridesmaids getting ready at home, so I joined them there for some getting ready photos.

Middle Aston House Wedding
Middle Aston House Wedding

Make up was by Jennifer Grayburn, and hair by Emma from Kenny’s Hair Boutique.

The beautiful flowers were by Georgina at Nicholson Nurseries.

Josie really did look stunning

Josie’s dress & veil was from Banbury Bridal Boutique and Bridesmaid dresses from Marks & Spencer.

The ceremony was at the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Bicester on a very hot day in early June (they were lucky – it rained for 2 weeks non-stop after this!!)

The men’s suits were from Victor Boss

Josie’s wedding ring was from Rosalyn’s Emporium, and Callum’s from Tiffany & Co.

Josie arrived in a lovely vintage Rolls Royce (called Brum) with her Dad – the car was from Allerston Taylor & Regency Carriages.

The Marilla String Quartet played before the ceremony and during the signing of the register.

Josie, her mum & cousin Melanie made the confetti themselves by getting friends & family to collect rose petals.

And the Rolls took them to Middle Aston House in the Oxfordshire countryside for their reception

Caitlin & Trev – Barn at Upcote Wedding

The weather in May this year (2019) was actually quite nice compared to the rain which was to come in June! So Caitlin & Trev’s Barn at Upcote Wedding was more like a summer’s day than spring!

The Barn at Upcote is a perfect wedding venue in the heart of the Cotswolds near Cheltenham. Surrounded by Cotswold hills and access to private gardens for photos by the lake, it’s just stunning.

Kelly & Tom | Ellenborough Park Hotel Wedding

Kelly & Tom’s Easter wedding at the beautiful Ellenborough Park Hotel started off with Kelly & the girls getting ready in the hotel.

Ellenborough Park has it’s own chapel, perfect for ceremonies, and that’s where Tom & Kelly were married surrounded by all their friends & family.

It was extremely hot for Easter weekend, absolutely gorgeous weather for a wedding, and so everyone had drinks & canapes outside the chapel on the lawn. I love Ellenborough Park because there are so many beautiful spots for photos – the horse, the swing, the gazebo, and the hotel itself makes a stunning backdrop.

Their wedding breakfast was in the De La Bere Court was decorated beautifully with flowers and the ‘Mr & Mrs’ letters. This was where they danced the evening away as well.

There was a lovely sunset so we did some more photos later as well – a fantastic wedding with a lovely couple at one of my favourite wedding venues in the Cotswolds.

Mickleton Hills Farm Styled Shoot

I was lucky enough to be involved in my first styled shoot at the amazing Mickleton Hills Farm just outside Chipping Campden here in the Cotswolds (and round the corner from where I live in Blockley!). This was all coordinated and styled by The Cotswold Wedding Company and was such a lovely day working with some amazing local wedding suppliers.

Mickleton Hills Farm is the perfect wedding venue, based around the original 18th century barn, surrounded by beautiful Cotswold countryside, and recently refurbished and expanded by the lovely owners David & Sammy. They built a new barn, so that the ceremony and wedding breakfast are separate (save all that turning the room round palaver!), and a new play and games area at the back.

Mickleton HIlls Farm Wedding

We started with bridal hair and makeup, expertly done by Natasha Louise Hair & Makeup in the Wool Store, which is the gorgeous honeymoon suite at the venue.

The ceremony room chairs were decorated in white lace sashes provided by The Cotswold Wedding Company as well as the hexagonal backdrop with flowers.

The ceremony was performed by Lynn Tierney Ceremonies – such a lovely celebrant who will tailor your ceremony to your wishes creating a truly personal and unique day for you.

One of the elements Lynn can do is tying the knot in a hand fasting ceremony.

A Wine Ceremony, where the bride & groom drink from a single glass of wine, symbolises drinking from the cup of life and sharing life’s experiences.

Mickleton HIlls Farm Wedding

Our bride and groom also ‘jumped the broom’ in a ceremony which dates back to centuries of tradition and is an important wedding custom in many cultures. It has its roots in the Celtic, Welsh, Scottish, Druid, African, Gypsy and some aboriginal cultures.

Couples celebrate this rich cultural heritage, irrespective of race, religion, and nationality. 
The most important thing is it’s significance; 
– Honouring and respect of ancestors, their legacy, and rich family heritage. 
– Coming together of both families, and commitment to each other as wife and husband. 
– It represents strength, love, togetherness, loyalty, and respect which is essential for a successful marriage.

Sonya & Matt – Stone Barn Costwolds Wedding

Sonya & Matt’s Stone Barn Cotswolds wedding started for me with the girls getting ready in a lovely nearby cottage. Sonya’s bridesmaids kept everyone entertained and laughing all morning with their hilarious antics! Olivia (Olivia Mills MUA) was also in stitches most of the time whilst expertly doing their hair & makeup!

Their ceremony was in Cripps Stone Barn – beautifully decorated as always by Beth from Go Wild Flowers – with her amazing foliage ring suspended from the ceiling.

It was a lovely ceremony which had laughter and hankies (as all good ceremonies should), and the reception was kicked off with confetti throwing under the twinkly lights of Stone Barn.

They were such a good crowd and there was lots of laughter & fun throughout the day. The food was amazing as always from the huge indoor barbeque at Stone Barn – three whole lambs cooking on it! The cake cutting & first dance kicked off the evening’s entertainment which was from Henry Marten’s Ghost – a lively Irish band who had everyone jigging around!

Nathan & Emily | Swan Hotel Bibury Wedding

My first wedding of 2019 was a very blustery day in Spring in one of the Cotswolds’ most beautiful villages, for Nathan & Emily’s Swan Hotel Bibury wedding. We were keeping our fingers crossed all morning that it didn’t rain as Emily had her heart set on photos in the pretty Arlington Row…it didn’t!

Emily’s face was such a picture when she came downstairs to her Dad and the page boy (ring bearer), and they had a lovely ceremony in the hotel.

This was followed by drinks, canapes and confetti in the yard outside. Emily then braved the wind for photos in the village. All credit to Emily, not many bride’s would have done that, it was pretty blustery! Because of the wind, we had some great veil action,  but also nearly lost it in the river! The fairly short walk from the hotel up to Arlington row is actually quite long when you’re wearing high heels and a wedding dress, and being blown to bits! That’s British weather for you…but as I said…it didn’t rain!

It was a really lovely day and a pleasure to photograph for such lovely people.
