Michelle and Mike’s Wedding

A Cotswold Wedding

…is always a magical event to photograph, and even more so at Christmas! As I drove through the misty Oxfordshire countryside, I was really looking forward to the day ahead. My destination was The Kingscote Barn, a wedding venue nestled in the heart of its very own secret valley.

Enchanting stone barn Cotswold wedding venue

Close to the Cotswold village of Tetbury, a sweeping private driveway leads you to this enchanting 17th century stone barn. Before me lay far-reaching views over rolling countryside, still covered in early morning dew.

Cotswold wedding with a minstrel’s gallery

Barn ceremonies are a wedding photographers dream!  Today, the exposed stonework and magnificent beams had been festooned with twinkling fairy lights. Kingscote Barn has a minstrel’s gallery high above where the happy couple would exchange rings. This allowed us to capture some great moments during this intimate Cotswold wedding ceremony. What could have been better. Someone had even hung a massive bunch of mistletoe above the spot where Michelle and Mike would say “I do”.

This is how the day unfolded at this special Christmas Cotswold wedding…
