Well as I said in my previous blog, the beginning of June 2019 was pretty rainy – so unfortunately Jade & Sam also had a very rainy wedding day at Hyde House…for part of it, but the sun did make an appearance later on and we still got some beautiful photos!
Jade & Sam’s Hyde House Wedding started with the girls getting ready in the beautiful room upstairs in the barn.
The stunning flowers were by Laura from Cotswold Blooms
Makeup was by Christine Cara
And hair by Rachel Mulford
The girls did some EPIC jumping for the camera!
One of the great things about Hyde House is that I can photograph the girls getting ready, and then pop across to the Manor House where the boys are usually getting ready.
It was beginning to absolutely TIP down at this point! But The Grange still looked beautiful, and ready for the ceremony
Finishing touches to a stunning bride, and some sisterly words of advice before the ceremony!
Jade’s stunning dress was Essence of Australia from Mae Bridal in Witney, and the Bridesmaid dresses from WED2B.
The beautiful ceremony was then underway in The Grange. Jade’s mum walked her down the aisle. it wasn’t raining when Jade went in…
But it was ever so slightly TORRENTIAL when they came out!!
One of the ushers gallantly went for umbrellas
And then there was a whole wedding umbrella kerfuffle!
Jade was amazing coping with this, and everyone was laughing walking back over to the barn! It’s either that or cry…
There were drinks in the barn while the rain tipped down, and we did the group photos upstairs – thank goodness for that lovely big room upstairs!
I had the pleasure of working with Richard from Aurora Wedding Films who did videography for the day. Once the rain had stopped for a bit we convinced Sam to carry Jade out to the arbor – it was still so wet on the ground!
The venue was dressed by The Cotswold Wedding Company
Hanging lanterns wer by Every Event Hire, and bunting by two of the Bridesmaids.
The wedding breakfast room looked stunning and so colourful on a rainy day.

The speeches were emotional…and funny!
There was a big white bouncy castle from All About Fun UK…which was VERY soggy…but Jade & Sam didn’t let that put them off!
It rained on & off all day, but the good thing about having me there all day is that we can be flexible, and do confetti and big group shots later on!
Every time Richard, the video man, and I took Jade & Sam outside for photos, it started raining again! Jade & Sam were amazing though and we got some great photos.
The cake was from Huffkins Bakery
Despite all the rain we had a gorgeous sunset
And a wonderful day, with such lovely people ended for me with the arbor photo after dark. Thanks for having me, it was an absolute pleasure!
