Cotswolds Weddings

Cotswolds weddings are always magical events 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 Cotswolds weddings venue nestled in the heart of its very own secret valley.

Enchanting Stone Barn Venue

Close to the 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.

Barn Ceremony Cotswolds Weddings

Barn ceremonies are a wedding photographers dream!  Today, the exposed stonework and magnificent beams were festooned with twinkling fairy lights, just perfect for Christmas Cotswolds weddings. The 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 their intimate 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”.

Christmas events are always special, particularly Cotswolds weddings. If you are looking for inspiration, then take a look at this Christmas wedding which took place on the South Downs, West Sussex.

Here is how Michelle and Mike’s day unfolded in the Cotswolds….
