Mickleton Hills Farm Wedding | Vicki & Mike

Vicki & Mike’s Mickleton Hills Farm wedding took place in the autumn, and the beautiful way they decorated the barns gave the day a very autumny feel. The weather didn’t really behave itself, it was an extremely soggy day, raining ALL day long, only stopping half an hour before sunset! But that didn’t stop Vicki & Mike having an amazing day.

I just loved all the pumpkins made from books, and the gorgeous flowers were by another very local supplier Abbie Digweed.

Mickleton Hills Farm is a very local wedding venue to me here in the Cotswolds, and has recently been refurbished and expanded to a very high standard by the lovely owners David & Sammy.

There are lovely cottages on site which meant both Vicki and Mike could get ready there in separate cottages…also making it much easier for me to photograph them when everyone’s all in once place!

Hair and makeup was by the amazing Natasha Louise

The barns were beautifully decorated with pumpkins and conkers.

It did rain all day, but the great thing about Mickleton Hills Farm is that there is plenty of room inside for group photos, with the beautiful backdrop of Abbie Digwood’s flower hoop.

Just before it got dark it did actually stop raining, hooray! So we went for a little walk up their very soggy but still beautiful driveway.

There was a crazy golf course set up by 9 Hole Event Hire outside in the games area (luckily under cover!) which was lots of fun for all the little ones, and bigger ones!

Manor House Hotel Wedding | Jennifer & Lee

Jennifer & Lee’s wedding at The Manor House Hotel in Moreton-in-Marsh at the beginning of July sometimes felt like we were in a tropical country somewhere, not in England! The weather was so amazing, and the thatched roof Breeze House for outdoor ceremonies at the Manor House Hotel gives the hotel gardens a real tropical feel!

Jennifer and the girls were getting ready in Apple Cottage, part of the hotel, but away from the main building

Hair was done by Matthew Curtis and his team

After a bit more touching up, and an emotional first look from Dad, Jennifer was ready to go outside in to the sunshine to marry Lee!

Beautiful wedding with beautiful people, and a pleasure to be part of it.

Cotswolds Hotel & Spa Wedding | Bethany & Ryan

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.

Caitlin & Trev – Barn at Upcote Wedding

The weather in May this year (2019) was actually quite nice compared to the rain which was to come in June! So Caitlin & Trev’s Barn at Upcote Wedding was more like a summer’s day than spring!

The Barn at Upcote is a perfect wedding venue in the heart of the Cotswolds near Cheltenham. Surrounded by Cotswold hills and access to private gardens for photos by the lake, it’s just stunning.

Kelly & Tom | Ellenborough Park Hotel Wedding

Kelly & Tom’s Easter wedding at the beautiful Ellenborough Park Hotel started off with Kelly & the girls getting ready in the hotel.

Ellenborough Park has it’s own chapel, perfect for ceremonies, and that’s where Tom & Kelly were married surrounded by all their friends & family.

It was extremely hot for Easter weekend, absolutely gorgeous weather for a wedding, and so everyone had drinks & canapes outside the chapel on the lawn. I love Ellenborough Park because there are so many beautiful spots for photos – the horse, the swing, the gazebo, and the hotel itself makes a stunning backdrop.

Their wedding breakfast was in the De La Bere Court was decorated beautifully with flowers and the ‘Mr & Mrs’ letters. This was where they danced the evening away as well.

There was a lovely sunset so we did some more photos later as well – a fantastic wedding with a lovely couple at one of my favourite wedding venues in the Cotswolds.

Mickleton Hills Farm Styled Shoot

I was lucky enough to be involved in my first styled shoot at the amazing Mickleton Hills Farm just outside Chipping Campden here in the Cotswolds (and round the corner from where I live in Blockley!). This was all coordinated and styled by The Cotswold Wedding Company and was such a lovely day working with some amazing local wedding suppliers.

Mickleton Hills Farm is the perfect wedding venue, based around the original 18th century barn, surrounded by beautiful Cotswold countryside, and recently refurbished and expanded by the lovely owners David & Sammy. They built a new barn, so that the ceremony and wedding breakfast are separate (save all that turning the room round palaver!), and a new play and games area at the back.

Mickleton HIlls Farm Wedding

We started with bridal hair and makeup, expertly done by Natasha Louise Hair & Makeup in the Wool Store, which is the gorgeous honeymoon suite at the venue.

All the absolutely stunning flowers were done by Flowers by Dawn Keitley – which included a bridal bouquet, buttonholes, flowers in the ceremony room, and amazing table centre pieces for the wedding breakfast.

The ceremony room chairs were decorated in white lace sashes provided by The Cotswold Wedding Company as well as the hexagonal backdrop with flowers.

The ceremony was performed by Lynn Tierney Ceremonies – such a lovely celebrant who will tailor your ceremony to your wishes creating a truly personal and unique day for you.

One of the elements Lynn can do is tying the knot in a hand fasting ceremony.

A Wine Ceremony, where the bride & groom drink from a single glass of wine, symbolises drinking from the cup of life and sharing life’s experiences.

Mickleton HIlls Farm Wedding
Mickleton HIlls Farm Wedding

Mickleton HIlls Farm Wedding

Our bride and groom also ‘jumped the broom’ in a ceremony which dates back to centuries of tradition and is an important wedding custom in many cultures. It has its roots in the Celtic, Welsh, Scottish, Druid, African, Gypsy and some aboriginal cultures.

Couples celebrate this rich cultural heritage, irrespective of race, religion, and nationality. 
The most important thing is it’s significance; 
– Honouring and respect of ancestors, their legacy, and rich family heritage. 
– Coming together of both families, and commitment to each other as wife and husband. 
– It represents strength, love, togetherness, loyalty, and respect which is essential for a successful marriage.

Sonya & Matt – Stone Barn Costwolds Wedding

Sonya & Matt’s Stone Barn Cotswolds wedding started for me with the girls getting ready in a lovely nearby cottage. Sonya’s bridesmaids kept everyone entertained and laughing all morning with their hilarious antics! Olivia (Olivia Mills MUA) was also in stitches most of the time whilst expertly doing their hair & makeup!

Their ceremony was in Cripps Stone Barn – beautifully decorated as always by Beth from Go Wild Flowers – with her amazing foliage ring suspended from the ceiling.

It was a lovely ceremony which had laughter and hankies (as all good ceremonies should), and the reception was kicked off with confetti throwing under the twinkly lights of Stone Barn.

They were such a good crowd and there was lots of laughter & fun throughout the day. The food was amazing as always from the huge indoor barbeque at Stone Barn – three whole lambs cooking on it! The cake cutting & first dance kicked off the evening’s entertainment which was from Henry Marten’s Ghost – a lively Irish band who had everyone jigging around!

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!

Cotswold Wedding Photographer 

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.
