Hyde House Wedding | Cheryl & Niall

Cheryl & Niall’s Cotswolds Winter Wedding at Hyde House was on a day in between Christmas and New Year – Twixtmas – when most people are still snuggled up on their sofa’s watching films and eating chocolates! Not Cheryl & Niall – they and all their family & friends were up for a party at Hyde House!

We were pretty lucky with the weather all day, it was freezing cold and windy, but it didn’t rain, so we were able to get outside for photos.

The girls were getting ready upstairs in the barn. Makeup was beautifully done by Katie Morley – always nice to see someone so happy in their work!

And hair by a friend of Cheryl’s Amanda Piggott. Cheryl and all her bridesmaids & flower girls looked absolutely beautiful.

It was then time for Dad to come in, and a few groups before Cheryl had her chat with the registrars.

Meanwhile Niall and the boys were ready and greeting guests in the manor house before going over to The Grange for the ceremony.

The ceremony barn – The Grange – was beautifully decorated by The Cotswold Wedding Company, who also styled the other barn for the wedding breakfast and drinks areas.

The Vyne String Quartet played beautifully during the ceremony, and the day was also videoed by Roger from Diamond Films – it was great to work with him again.

The ceremony in The Grange was then underway – I love photographing in there, it’s always such lovely light whatever the weather.

Everyone then headed back over to the reception barn to throw confetti. After months of seemingly non-stop rain (apart from today) the grass was extremely soggy, so I advised everyone to stay on the pavement!

Acoustic singer songwriter Alex Harry entertained everyone during the drinks reception.

The Best Man was VERY relieved once his speech was out of the way!

We did some after dark photos before the dancing got underway. The arbor at Hyde House provides the perfect backdrop for that, and there were a few spraklers flying around!

The cake was cut, and bouquet thrown…Cheryl did very well not to get it tangled up in the overhead decorations!

With Niall’s family being Irish there was a lot of Irish jigging going on. The evening DJ and disco floor provider was Premier Beats Entertainment, the love letters also by The Cotswold Wedding Company. Fantastic day and great fun to photograph!

Hyde House Wedding | Hannah & Matt

Hannah & Matt were very lucky to have a pretty perfect summer’s day for their Hyde House Wedding in the Cotswolds.

I really do love photographing weddings at this Cotswolds venue, everything is all in one location, the day flows really well, and there are so many beautiful spots for photos at different times of the day, with stunning views over the Cotswold Hills.

The girls got ready upstairs in the wonderfully light getting ready room

Where there is plenty of room to hang the dresses up

The beautiful flowers were by Jackie from Bluebell Wood Florist

Hair was by Robert John Hair in Bristol

And makeup by the very talented Katy Pheiffer

The boys were getting ready over in the manor house – that’s what I love about this place, the boys are there too!

Hannah looked stunning, her dress was from Platinum Brides, designed by Nicola Anne Bridal.

After being very calm and collected all morning, Hannah did finally crack when her Dad saw her for the first time – this was one of the most emotional Father seeing the Bride moments I’ve ever seen, and I was sobbing too!

Then it was time for the short, but nervous, walk over to The Grange for the ceremony

The amazing Ardeton String Quartet played during during the ceremony, and afterwards at the reception. They even took requests during the wedding breakfast so guests could choose songs!

A very much less nervous walk back to the barn for the reception drinks, canapes and confetti!

The beautiful venue styling was by The Cotswold Wedding Company

And the lovely stationary was by Samantha & The Stationery.

Scratch cards are always entertaining…

…except when you don’t win!

But just winning a pound is very exciting!!

Speeches were then underway

Then time for some photos showing off the beautiful bride & groom in the stunning gardens at Hyde House.

The lovely cup cakes and larger cake to cut were by The Cotswold Cake Bee

Both the photo booth and DJ were provided by Oxygen Discos & Events

And a photo under the arbor after dark is a must at Hyde House. Fabulous day!

Hyde House Wedding | Nicola & Jared

Nicola & Jared had an absolutely beautiful sunny day for their wedding at Hyde House here in the Cotswolds – about time too after a very rainy June so far! The sky was BLUE, amazing!

As usual with weddings at Hyde House – it’s so easy for me with the beautiful getting ready room upstairs in the barn.

I took Nicola & Jared for a little walk round the grounds for photos before their wedding breakfast. I always like to get the group photos done before then as well, while everyone’s still looking smart!

Hay bales were perfect for a summers day, and they were from The Cotswold Hay Bale Company. There was time to blow bubbles before the cake cutting and first dance!

The cake was from Waitrose and beautifully decorated by Jared’s mum Christina.

The Grange, where the ceremony was held, is also a great spot for photos later on, and it’s lovely garden area where you can look over the Cotswolds landscape

Sparklers are always a lovely way to end the photos

Another fantastic day with lovely people and amazing weather!

This blog is in memory of one of Nicola’s bridesmaids, Gail, who has incredibly sadly passed away since the wedding. I met her for the first time at the wedding and she was a beautiful, happy human being, and will be sadly missed.

Howard & Cheryl | Hyde House Wedding

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!

Gemma & Chris | Hyde House Wedding

Gemma & Chris chose to have their Hyde House Wedding (or Hyde Barn as it used to be known) in Stow-on-the-Wold here in the Cotswolds. I really love this venue – everything is all in one place with the beautiful Fosse Manor next to the barn for the boys to get ready in and meet guests in the bar there. The girls can get ready in the barn upstairs with it’s fabulous Hollywood style mirrors and little balcony where I can do the big group photo from. Gemma was the picture of elegance in her fabulous Manolo Blahnik shoes and dress by Rosa Clara (it had pockets!) Her stunning flowers were created by Jo at Aqua Flowers – always a pleasure to see her.

Everyone had an amazing day with the staff at Hyde House doing a fab job as always – an absolute joy to photograph this Hyde House Wedding for such a lovely couple.
