Between Christmas & New Year I photographed the wedding of Helen & Louis.
We were greeted by another lovely wintery sunny day as we made our way to The Cotswold Plough in the quaint village of Clanfield, Oxfordshire. The Plough is a traditional 16th century Cotswold stone hotel & was a wonderfully cosy yet stylish location for a winter wedding.
Helen & Louis’ day was a wonderful family affair with lots of stylish design ideas. I thought the bride looked beautiful in her fur stole & pheasant feather headpiece that she made herself. The use of gypsophila en masse in the bouquet & cake topper was stunning. So interesting to use these delicate little flowers so often used as incidental filler on its own & it looked beautiful – like floral clouds!
They also had illuminated letters on their dancefloor from Vowed & Amazed. Vowed & Amazed specialise in hiring theatrical props for weddings & particularly illuminated letters. They had a great, stylish backdrop for your dance floor & for some fun photos too
It really was a lovely day & I think my images reflect this. As always I left everyone dancing the night away.
Hope you enjoy your sneak peek Helen & Louis. Wishing you every happiness!
Shortly before Christmas I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of Sam & Darren in the Cotswolds.
It was a beautiful sunny winters day as Kiti & I headed to the picturesque village of Broadway. The wedding was held in the historical hotel The Lygon Arms. It is a beautiful building in honey-coloured Cotswold stone & looked wonderful in the sunshine.
The first hotel on the site was documented in 1532. Their service was held in the wonderful Great Hall with the sunlight streaming through the windows & Sam was accompanied up the aisle by her very proud Dad. I love this image of Darren seeing his bride, I think his smile says it all….
It was a lovely wedding with inspiration from the season. Darren & his groomsmen had stylish tweed suits accented by ruby red ties & pocket squares.
Sam wore a gorgeous short dress with lace overlay & carried a beautiful bouquet of dark crimson roses. She also wore a fantastic pair of Jimmy Choos!
The Lygon Arms provided a stunning backdrop for the bride & groom photographs with the warm Cotswold stone frontage, Tudor timbers & a lovely garden.
After a delicious dinner in the Great Hall Sam, Darren & their guests hit the dance floor. Its been a while since I saw such enthusiastic dancing!
Congratulations Sam & Darren, wishing you every happiness for married life together
