Mr & Mrs Clarke- Rustic, Pastel Spring Wedding at Kingscote Barn, Cotswolds

Mr & Mrs Clarke at Kingscote Barn I was so excited to be shooting at the beautiful Kingscote Barn and for it to be the first sunny wedding of the year too! “We loved everything about the venue from the moment we saw it. It was the only one we viewed, didn’t need to see anything else! Loved how relaxed it was and the light canopy inside the barn is stunning!” Liz and Dan met at work after Liz’s uncle got her the interview. The morning was nice and chilled with all the girls getting ready in the large bridal suite on-site, next to the barn. The boys arrived on time, found their button holes and were ready to greet the guests. They chose a pastel vintage theme to compliment the Spring weather with the bridesmaids in a beautiful pastel blue. The ceremony Kingscote Barn is such a beautiful barn, Cotswolds stone and high ceilings make this a stunning venue to be married in. Liz was walked down the aisle by her tearful mum and given to her beaming husband-to-be. A friend did a heartfelt reading and they walked back down the aisle as husband and wife under falling confetti. The barn is situated within acres of stunning english farmland. We were fortunate enough to wander around the gorgeous grounds for some photographs during the drinks reception. The couple chose to have an Afternoon Tea for their wedding breakfast which complimented the spring wedding theme perfectly. “It was nice and chilled out, the whole day ran smoothly- probably because we had no idea what we were doing!

Mr & Mrs Bray- Snowy Wedding- The Old Lodge, Minchinhampton, Cotswolds

Living in the UK, you don’t expect to have a snow on your wedding day, let alone in March! The first wedding of the year at The Old Lodge in Minchinhampton Common was one I will never forget. Katie let me know a few days before that we were expecting snow on her wedding day. Little did we know how much snow we would actually get! I travelled down the day before to be on the safe side and the snow was already thick when I arrived. It was nicknamed ‘The Beast from the East’ and it certainly lived up to it’s name in the Cotswolds! These two met at work, when Katie was freelancing at a design agency that Wes worked at. ‘I didn’t know at the time but Wes had a rule that he wouldn’t get into relationships with people from work! We went on a road trip around Scotland. Wes proposed at the fairy pools on the Isle of Skye. We’d had a great day visiting whisky distilleries and eating oysters so this topped it off perfectly.’ Katie and her Maid of Honour were already at the venue when I arrived, setting up the room in preparation for tomorrow. Thursday night was when the beast really hit The Old Lodge hard. Waking up Friday morning the entire place was covered in snow, up to 3 feet in some places! Emotions ran high as panic set in about whether guests would be able to show up to the wedding due to weather! Luckily all the bridesmaids and parents arrived safely which put Katie’s mind to rest.
