Cotswolds – get married here!

“Cotswolds, what a beautiful region… The road stretches far in front of me, lined by Cotswold stone walls and old oak trees. Light flickering through branches like peppered stars reflecting slowly across the bonnet of my car”. (J.J. Evendon).

I can only imagine our couple falling in love with their perfect wedding venue – Westonbirt School, Tetbury. Here’s a short slideshow featuring some of the other fantastic locations we’ve had a pleasure to photograph in the Cotswolds:

Westonbirt School – the bride

I can’t even begin to describe how stunning the bride looked. Beautiful eyes, hair and not one white dress but two! Her husband is a very lucky man and I think at one point he started to worry just a little bit… Just before the ceremony he waited, then he waited a bit more, worried that maybe his bride won’t arrive and then she entered the toom. He waited and then he saw her, his stunning bride. He looked so happy!

Groom and his beautiful bride

When you look at the photo of the groom, you see the pure happiness in his eyes. True love! This Westonbirt School wedding day was perfect and it also included the ice cream, the amazing live band and proper fireworks display. I mean – the proper BIG ones! There were also grandparents rocking the dance floor and the venue doing its’ usual job of looking incredible. It was a long summer day in the beautiful Cotswolds and even the weather cooperated.

We were a part of the celebrations

What I really liked about the bride was her warmth and personal approach. Not only her but all her family wasn’t just calling me – ‘the camera lady’ or ‘the photographer.’ Everybody was calling me by my actual name. What an amazing experience! We really want to be a part of our couples’ wedding day, we give them our hearts and souls and Hattie and her family gave us that same feeling back.

To them we were just friends working hard using our cameras to get the best pictures…

The magic of Cotswolds weddings

There is something about this part of the world that is so timeless and elegant and this must be the reason why it attracts so many beautiful couples to get married here. It is a perfect place for camera enthusiasts and artists too. Love stories bloom in villages of honey-colored stone and rolling hills that inspired J.R.R. Tolkien to write The Lord of the Rings and Laurie Lee to write Cider with Rosie.

Have you visited Bibury, with its iconic Arlington Row cottages? CRIPPS BARN is the popular venue located nearby and it’s gorgeous! An ideal location for photography enthusiasts too – you will see many people with their professional Canon, Nikon and Sony cameras and lenses, very often carrying tripods and density filters too! All that to capture those incredible idyllic landscapes.

Probably the most expensive house from the Victorian times!

Westonbirt House is one of the fanciest Victorian stately homes in England. It was made by Robert Holford, one of the wealthiest men in Britain, and he didn’t hold back in making a super fancy house to show off all his art and furniture. This might be the most expensive house from the Victorian times. The house has some really great stuff, like the original 19th-century silk wallpaper and embossed Cordoba leather wall coverings. Oh, and in the Great Hall, there’s this amazing fireplace made of Carrara marble, and the library still has its original built-in bookcases.
