Laura and John’s Notley Tythe Barn wedding was just straight up fun – all day. John didn’t want any groom prep and they didn’t want anything posed and that’s fine with us. When you get married it’s your day so go your own way. Today wasn’t a traditional wedding, they weren’t religious and had already officially – I would say “tied the knot” but that was just about to happen for real so “got married” will have to do.
Adventures in Wedding Photography
Hi there, welcome to our wedding photography blog. Here we share our favourite weddings, engagement shoots and other wedding related things. If you would like to see more wedding images you can see featured weddings here or view our wedding gallery here.
Lower Lawn Barns in Compton Marbling is a beautiful Wiltshire wedding venue. It was our first time photographing a wedding here and we hope to go back soon. I dropped Carol off with Olie at his parent’s house and once ready he took off for the church with Tom, the best man, in his Austin-Healey 3000. I met Bee and the girls getting ready in Shaftesbury. Bee’s girls presented her with a wonderful keepsake album of their friendship which brought on some pre-wedding tears.
The very next day from Julianna and Peter’s wedding in a church next door to the house with a marquee in the garden we had Laura and Ian’s wedding. In the church next door to the house with a marquee in the garden. However, this day the weather was not on our side. Not for one minute. See that up there? It was raining.
Julianna & Peter had a mad day. From the word go it was a kind of chaos. When I turned up to Sudbury House to meet Julianna there was already a film crew in the room with cameras on tripods and lights set up on stands. Not my preferred situation to be honest but hey ho let’s get on with it.
Stone Barn is one of our favourite Cotswolds wedding venues. Lauren & Mike had their wedding at Stone Barn back at the start of the summer last year (I know. I know, I’m catching up with last years weddings now). It was a glorious day, quite a difference to the previous wedding at Matara with Harri & Ranj which was bitterly cold.
Hayley & John met at School and have been together 12 years. We were thrilled to be chosen as their Westonbirt School wedding photographers as we hadn’t photographed a wedding at Westonbirt House before. We did photograph one of our first pre-wedding sessions back in 2011 but haven’t been back until now.
The Cotswolds are full of incredible wedding venues and Matara really is something special. We love coming back to photograph weddings at the Matara Centre. Matara wedding photography is always an amazing experience; it’s such a gorgeous wedding venue. In any weather there’s so much variety both indoors and out that it makes the lives of us Cotswolds wedding photographers easy.
We always like to ask our clients to tell us about their day. We are Cotswolds wedding photographers rather than creative writers so to make our lives easier and to make a more personal story I’ll let Karina tell you about their Cowley Manor Wedding. It’s much more interesting to hear about the day from her perspective than mine. Unusually for a blog I’m going to show the Cowley Manor wedding photography first and then put her words in after. It’s quite lengthy you see and well worth the time to read but you might not get to the photos if I just paste it here. So settle in for a long read and see their beautiful Cowley Manor wedding photography.
