Sarah and Andrea’s

Cotswolds Circus Wedding

Sarah and Andrea found as their Cotswolds wedding photography via good old Google. They liked my style but living a fair distance apart and with busy schedules, we met first time via video chat. When they started telling me about their wedding, I was SUPER excited.

Sarah’s speech (I LOVE it when a Bride does a speech) was really moving, mainly because she described how she’d always thought she just wouldn’t be one of those brides who thought her wedding day would be “the best day of her life”. She mainly just wanted to marry the man she loved, surrounded by her family and friends and wasn’t bothered about all the formality and fuss. In her speech she explained that it had in fact, truly been one of the best days of her entire life and had far exceeded her expectations – it was really special.

In their review of me and my work, Sarah and Andrea wrote the following:

“We couldn’t recommend Becky highly enough, in fact that is exactly what we have been doing to all of our family and friends!

From the outset, I knew we were in great hands with prompt and detailed email communications, FaceTime calls and in person meetings. Becky was thorough and attentive, really making an effort to understand our hopes for the feel and atmosphere of our wedding day and how best to capture that in her photographs.

She took the time to scout out different locations for our portraits and even knew the time and direction of sunset to capture some beautiful pictures for us in the ‘golden hour’.

Seeing our photos for the first time was the most wonderful surprise. Becky blended into our day and captured the most magical moments, secret looks, smiles, laughs and a few tears so naturally and unobtrusively that nobody noticed them being taken and we saw so many parts of the day we had missed in the moment.

Becky was one of the few parts of the day I absolutely never worried about, such a lovely feeling for a Bride! I was totally right to be confident, Becky was brilliant, the photos are incredible and we can’t thank her enough, just wish we could do it all again at least once a year! ”

Sarah got ready at their family home in Cheltenham, with her Mum, sister, Dad and her gorgeous little girl, Wren. The flowers were by Allium, Stow on the Wold and included a gorgeous wreath for little Wren. Sarah’s hair and make-up were beautifully done by the amazing Anna White. It was a very relaxed morning, Sarah looked absolutely STUNNING and once her Mum had helped her into her beautiful Phase 8 dress, everyone completely fell apart with happy tears.

The Ceremony and Wedding Breakfast were held at Wesley House, Winchcombe, a picturesque Cotswolds Village. Being a Chef, Sarah understandably wanted really good food, and boy was it good! Mouth-wateringly so.

Later on in the afternoon we all headed down the road to the grounds of Sudeley Castle, where the Big Top and other Circus tents of Giffords Circus were sitting proudly, bursting with wonderful colours.

Later on in the afternoon we all headed down the road to the grounds of Sudeley Castle, where the Big Top and other Circus tents of Giffords Circus were sitting proudly, bursting with wonderful colours.

The Circus itself was awesome – hilariously funny, we had our bums on the edge of our seats most of the way through and were all highly amused when they got Andrea up to help out with the unicycle! The wedding guests loved every minute (as did I!).

Afterwards everyone retreated to one of the other Circus tents, where the Giffords Circus staff had put on what I can only describe as an absolute feast.

The day ended with a sparkler exit and I think the new Mr and Mrs Domenicucci faces say it all.

 

Cotswolds Cirucs Wedding

Why get married in the Cotswolds?

The Cotswolds is an absolutely stunning area for your wedding and I’m so excited that you’ve found me! Being a lover of informal, countryside weddings I absolutely love being a Cotswolds wedding photographer. There are so many gorgeous wedding venues which suit my unobtrusive, informal documentary style. Some of my absolute favourite Cotswolds wedding venues include Stone Barn, Cripps Barn, Kingscote Barn and the Great Tythe Barn.

The Cotswolds itself is other-worldly. It’s no wonder this stunning area has been named an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, because that’s exactly what it is. The Cotswolds scenery is to die for, rolling hills, colourful arable farmland and picturesque stone villages scattered here and there. The architecture is stunning too, with endless chocolate box buildings made from the iconic honey-coloured Cotswold stone.

I absolutely love shooting weddings in the Cotswolds and would love to hear more about your big day! Get in touch to check my availability.

My Favourite Cotswolds

Wedding Venues

The Stone Barn pretty much has everything I love about a wedding venue. Set in the middle of the Cotswolds countryside this jaw-dropping venue has a real rustic feel with a mix of traditional Cotswolds stone walls and corrugated iron barn buildings.

It’s surprisingly modern inside with a tonne of natural light in the main reception room and beautifully landscaped outdoor space too.  My absolutely favourite thing about this venue is the canopy of fairy lights which hang from the ceiling – super handy for making some epic evening shots.

Cripps Barn

Cripps Barn equals The Stone Barn when it comes to meeting all my favourite things about wedding venues and so it’s no surprise that it’s run by the same company – Cripps and Co. Cripps Barn is an 18th century barn boasting everything there is to love about the British countryside.

There are gorgeous views of the Cotswolds countryside, carefully tended gardens for your guests to explore, an enormous roaring fire, stone walls and oak beams aplenty. It is the absolute perfect backdrop for your informal country wedding and is guaranteed to wow your guests.

Kingscote Barn is another awesome barn wedding venue nestled in the Cotswolds hills. There are stunning views from every angle and no shortage of places for some epic photographs.

There’s the option to have your ceremony indoors in the gallery or outside in the stunning Cotswolds countryside under the beams of the beautiful oak Linhay.

Once you’ve officially tied the knot your guests can enjoy canapes and drinks whilst they place games on the lawn and you and your new spouse can take a wonder in the rose garden or steel a kiss in the haybales.  

From luxury bed and breakfast rooms to eco pods there’s an abundance of on-site accommodation exclusively for your use too, so no need for the party to end early! You can even spend your first night as a married couple in the new Tree House suite!

The Great Tythe Barn

Cotswolds wedding photographer

This incredible venue can only be described as drop dead gorgeous. Nestled in the Cotswolds countryside this awesome venue is also walking distance from the bustling market town of Tetbury, which is well worth a visit while guests are in the area.

The Great Tythe barn itself is a 16th century stone barn which has been lovingly restored. Whilst it retains all the original features which make for an unbelievable backdrop for your wedding photographs, there’s comfortable mod-cons too, including underfloor heating, atmospheric lighting and enormous glass entrance door to let in lots of natural light. The outside space is quintessentially Cotswolds with manicured lawns, lavender beds bursting with purples set against a backdrop of pretty old stone walls – absolute perfection.

Why I Love Photography

in the Cotswolds

Being an adventurer and lover of all things outdoors, my work is inspired by nature.

I’m never happier than when I’m out in the British countryside and so my work is heavily inspired by nature. I love to get creative in wild and wonderful locations and the Cotswolds is no exception.

With its quintessentially English villages built from honey-coloured stone and over 3000 miles of footpaths to explore, this never endingly pretty area is one of my favourite places. My cocker spaniel, Ted and I have lost many an hour walking through rolling fields of golden crops, crisscrossing footpaths and discovering pretty stone villages, usually stopping off for a cuppa along the way.

For me, the Cotswolds represents everything I love about our beautiful country. With pretty stone villages and rolling hills, epic views and endless character, this area of the world is quintessentially English and therefore unsurprisingly famous world-wide.

Feeling most at home in the great British countryside, the Cotswolds offers a plethora of wild, wonderful scenes and has a bounty of wonderfully informal, rustic wedding venues too, there’s no wonder I’m happy at work when shooting a Cotswolds wedding. 

About 86% of the Cotswolds is farmland, making it a real home from home for me. I absolutely love being outdoors and find inspiration from this beautiful landscape comes easily.
