Howard & Cheryl had their whole Cotswolds wedding at Hyde House – always a good idea as they have everything you could possibly need, and guests don’t need to go anywhere else! Especially now they have the new Grange barn for ceremonies…and photos later!
Cheryl and her Bridesmaids got ready upstairs in the barn, with hair done by Samantha Middleton from Redmill Hair, Banbury; and make up by Nicole Bessell from NB Makeup. While the boys were busy getting stuff ready downstairs, fixing balloons and sorting out tiny little jam jars…they did all the decorations themselves, and the end result looked amazing – especially the table centre pieces which each told a little story of the people on that table, very clever indeed.
This was my first ceremony in The Grange and I loved it, it’s so light and spacious in there, great for photos. It was decorated beautifully with flowers by Flower Thyme, and all the bouquets were stunning as well with very unusual colours. The weather wasn’t behaving, so we had to delay confetti until it had stopped raining later, but that did give us some dramatic skies for photos!
The speeches were hilarious, with Cheryl very bravely getting up to do the first speech and making everyone ‘Whoop’ every time she mentioned their name.
They even managed to get outside to eventually do their pinata in the dark, which had been hanging on the tree all day!
They danced the evening away with music from DJ Cotswold Discos Entertainment.
Fabulous day with fabulous people and thank you for asking me to photograph it!
