Cotswold Wedding Photography: Roundup of 2018

As we start 2019, I’ve done a roundup of my Cotswold Wedding Photography in 2018 and here is a very small selection of all the wonderful weddings I was privileged to photograph last year.

We had some quite extreme weather thrown at us, with The Beast from the East (which kept coming back) in the Spring, and the hottest summer on record turning green grass yellow.

I was back at lots of my favourite local venues and also at some fabulous new ones, and after photographing over 40 weddings I am now enjoying a quieter January & February before the fun starts again!

Some of my most local venues are Blackwell Grange in Shipston on Stour, and the amazing Hyde House in Stow-on-the-Wold. One of my favourite churches to photograph is St. James Church in Chipping Campden. I love The Manor House Hotel in Moreton-in-Marsh, Charingworth Manor, and was excited to photograph my first wedding at the fabulous new venue Lapstone Barn also in Chipping Campden.

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!

Kayleigh & Dan | Blackwell Grange Wedding

It was such a pleasure to photograph Kayleigh & Dan’s Blackwell Grange wedding – Kayleigh was so super-excited about absolutely everything, it was very infectious! Blackwell Grange is a beautiful all in one barn venue surrounded by fields and stunning scenery here in the Cotswolds.

The Potting Shed is a wonderful area for getting ready (and very close to everything, so Kayleigh could keep popping out to see the amazing cake and flowers arrive!) The Thatch Barn is where Kayleigh & Dan had their lovely ceremony. The little page boy Jacob very bravely led the wedding party in to the barn holding his ‘Here Comes the Bride’ sign, and gave the rings to Kayleigh & Dan during the ceremony – a very important job!

Their dog Pippa made a guest appearance during the reception for some photos. Being a gin lover myself I very much approved of the gin bottle table decorations and the whole room looked amazing, with some very funny and emotional speeches after the wedding breakfast.

We had some dramatic skies at sunset and I had such fun photographing their lovely day at such a lovely venue.

Pippa & Alistair | Lapstone Barn Wedding

Lapstone Barn, near Chipping Campden in the Cotswolds, opened it’s doors as a new wedding venue earlier this year, and is just around the corner from where I live, so I was very excited to photograph the lovely Pippa & Alistair’s Lapstone Barn Wedding there in the autumn. Pippa and her bridesmaid got ready upstairs in the Hayloft – a fantastic space for getting ready – and hair & makeup was done beautifully by Lucie Richmond.

Unfortunately the weather didn’t exactly behave, but that really didn’t matter at this venue. Pippa didn’t have to go outside at all to get to the beautiful ceremony room downstairs, which was decorated with stunning autumn colours by Sue at The Bay Tree at Campden. The guests could throw confetti indoors, and there is a lovely courtyard with a covered area which is perfect for group photos and couple photos if it’s raining.  Pippa, Alistair and all their guests were very cosy inside all day (apart from when I dragged them all outside for the big group photo…it did stop raining for a short time!)

They did their first dance and then were entertained by the brilliant band Resident Heroes.  A really wonderful day for a lovely couple.

Shelley & Gemma | Charingworth Manor Wedding

It was an absolute pleasure to photograph Shelley & Gemma’s Charingwoth Manor wedding in the Cotswolds. The weather wasn’t so great on the day – and I think this was the last rainy day before the big heatwave of 2018 hit us! But that didn’t spoil their day at all – Charingworth Manor is beautiful inside as well, so plenty of photo opportunities!

Lyla from The Cotswold Wedding Company provided the 12 bridesmaids (5 for Shelley & 7 for Gemma) with their beautiful dresses, and was even there in the morning dressing them!

It was hilariously complicated trying to avoid Shelley & Gemma seeing each other before the ceremony, at one point Shelley’s bridesmaids ended up hiding in the kitchen!

It was a beautiful ceremony in the Orangery and very emotional speeches later on. The Orangery was decorated beautifully by Finishing Touches Gloucester .The rain eased up later so that we could do some photos outside, and the highlight of the dancing was everyone singing ‘Come on Eileen’ to Shelley’s great aunt Eileen who was 101! They rounded off the evening with an amazing firework display by Cotswold Fireworks on top of the hill there at Charingworth.

Many thanks as well to Christy Blanch Photography for second shooting for me and being amazing.

Sarah & Dane | Winkworth Farm Wedding

This was my first Winkworth Farm wedding and I very much enjoyed it – an absolutely perfect place for a wedding! I know Sarah’s family quite well having photographed her sister’s wedding as well, and what a lovely bunch they all are, as were Dane’s family, mostly from Australia.

The girls got ready in the perfect little cottage on site there (I love it when everything is in one place!) and the ceremony was in the barn.

Nicola Lewis from Tangled Hair & Beauty in Oxford did Sarah’s hair and those beautiful flowers were by Scentiments in Tetbury.

This was a Spring wedding and so far the Spring had been awful – Sarah and Dane were however incredibly lucky to get one of the few beautiful and actually warm Spring days of 2018!

The catering was done by Warings Catering and they had a fun photobooth in the evening by The Two Bonnys.

There are so many lovely little spots for photos so I loved photographing there, and Sarah & Dane had a fantastic day.

Stuart & Kelly | Cripps Stone Barn Wedding

We had a pretty awful Spring this year and were hoping that the weather might have warmed up a bit for Stuart & Kelly’s wedding at Cripps Stone Barn at the end of April – it should be warm by then…but no, it was pretty freezing still!

We had a lovely fun morning getting ready in Bibury, thanks to the lovely hair & make-up girls –  Stacy from Updoo doing her hair and  Jade Withers MUA.

As well as the boys getting ready next door, their dog had a little ribbon to wear as well, and watched the ceremony very quietly at Stone Barn before jumping up at Stuart & Kelly when they were finally married!

The barn looked amazing as always with a magnificent floral ring and other flowers by Beth from Go Wild Flowers.

Despite the freezing weather we managed to do photos outside – Kelly was great fun, laughing all the time and didn’t mind me dragging her in to the lovely yellow rapeseed field at all!

A fabulous day all round with music from the fabulous Mister Kanish, photo booth from Party Foto Pods and rounded off with marshmallows toasting in the firepits and  sparklers.

Shane & Philippa | Manor by the Lake Wedding

Shane & Philippa’s Manor by the Lake wedding was great fun to photograph – I love it when everything is in one place. The girls can get ready in their stunning white bedroom – it’s just gorgeous, and a dream to photograph in – that bath is to die for. The boys have the very cool Rock Bar to prepare in – with jukebox and pool table and lots of Elvis stuff.

Shane & Philippa really wanted their wedding to be outside, but the weather didn’t quite comply with their wishes at the time of the ceremony – it was fine later on! So despite being all set up outside they abandoned the Victorian Pavillion and still had a gorgeous ceremony in the stunning Maximillian Room instead – and we were all able to go outside afterwards.

There are loads of cool places for photos at this venue, so it’s great for me, and there was energetic barn dancing, and sparklers in the evening.

Rosie & Philip | Merriscourt Wedding

Rosie & Philip’s Merriscourt wedding started with Rosie getting ready in the lovely Old House at Merriscourt, with  Sharon Roberts doing her hair, and Clare Pinkney make-up – she looked gorgeous. The weather however was anything but gorgeous – we had thunder and lighting and torrential rain most of the morning which didn’t bode well for the rest of the day.

Their ceremony was at Kingham Church, and I felt so sorry for Sarah & Victoria of The Great Little Flower Company putting the flower arch up at the church in torrential rain, but what an amazing job they did.

The rain stopped while we were in the church and as soon as everyone came out we had glorious sunshine and blue sky so we could really appreciate the flowers the girls put up – looking at my photos you wouldn’t think the weather had been so awful before!

We also arrived at Merriscourt in glorious sunshine so could make the most of the lovely fields for photos, and more importantly all the guests could enjoy their drinks & canapes outside overlooking the glorious Cotswolds countryside.

A fabulous day at a fabulous wedding venue here in the Cotswolds which ended in a brilliant party in the barn.

2017 Cotswold Wedding Photography

Here is a selection from some of the wonderful weddings I photographed in and around the Cotswolds in 2017. We enjoyed all the different weather Britain has to offer: beautiful sunshine, thunder & lightening, snow, torrential rain, showers, fog, sunsets….all of which added to the couples’ wedding day and made it their own.

There were bouncy castles, space hoppers, sparklers, boat trips, snow machines, rottweilers with flower garlands (well, just one of those). Three different castles, barns, manor houses, marquees, and churches of course. Camper vans, horse & carriage, wedding cars.

All of them were huge fun to photograph and thank you to all the lovely couples who booked me. Looking forward to a another wedding packed year ahead in 2018!
