A COTSWOLDS COUNTRYSIDE WEDDING
Zoe & Will were married at beautiful Cotswolds wedding venue Kingscote Barn in Gloucestershire. Their wedding took place in August, on a hot summer’s day with blue skies and sunshine aplenty. Zoe got ready at Monks Mill Barn in the morning, with her bridesmaids and family. Her makeup was by Emily Tarrant and hair by Louise Alway. Flowers were by Sorori Florist. The groomsmen got ready at home. Everyone then gathered at the picturesque Cotswold church at Long Newnton, near Tetbury, and the wedding ceremony commenced. Unfortunately I was not allowed to take pictures in the church, but I had a kind word with the vicar and he then permitted me to take a few. I was very glad that I had secured this opportunity as I feel it is so important to capture the special moments of the wedding ceremony, whilst still remaining completely discreet at the back of the church (being invisible is my speciality!). Then we all got covered in confetti and journeyed to our location for the wedding reception, Kingscote Barn.
KINGSCOTE BARN WEDDING VENUE
Kingscote Barn is a stunning restored 17th Century Cotswold stone barn set in the middle of rolling countryside. Surrounded by breathtaking scenery and lots of rural charm, it has an impressive main barn for your wedding breakfast and celebrations, with a vaulted ceiling and viewing gallery. There is also an adjoining barn area with a bar for guests to mingle in. The staff are incredibly helpful and there is a very high level of service – I can definitely recommend this venue if you are still looking for somewhere for your own wedding. A warm welcome awaited us, with drinks and canapes, lovely rustic decorations, plenty of vintage lace, and music from The Hot Shots band. The beautiful wedding cake, made of five tiers with lace detailing, was by Curtis & Co Cakes. After the wedding breakfast (expertly catered by Strawberry Fields), there were speeches and then a sunset photo opportunity in the cornfield – this ‘golden’ light is my favourite! The band rocked the evening celebrations and everyone had a blast! It was great to work with The Bristol Wedding Film Company at this wedding again too. So here are a few favourites to capture the day – huge congratulations to Zoe & Will, it has been amazing to work with you, thank you so much for having me! Best wishes x
