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.
I love venues where everything is all in one place – it makes it much easier for me! I started with the girls getting ready in the hotel.
The groom arrived at the hotel in fancy a bright red car
And I had the pleasure of working with a great videographer all day Shannon from Sam Bennett Photography.
The ceremony was set up in the marquee part of the hotel
It had rained a bit in the morning but luckily was fine after the ceremony so we could all go outside and throw confetti!
And then Bethany, Ryan, Shannon the videographer and I all went off on golf buggies to do some photos in the gorgeous grounds.
Bethany’s stunning dress was from Bicester Bridal
All the beautiful flowers were done by Bethany’s mum who owns The Flower Shop at Deddington
The Wedding Breakfast was set up in back the marquee
Followed by some very emotional speeches – Dad succeeded in making everyone cry!
You can see at the bottom left of this photo where I managed to crash my golf buggy into the small white picket fence in front of a jeering crowd!! Well I’d never driven one before!! Hopefully The Cotswold Hotel & Spa will still have me back…
The cake was from Marks & Spencer
And the band The Events played all night and got everyone dancing
We managed to get out for a few more photos as the sun was setting – a really lovely day with such a lovely couple – thanks for having me!
