Cotswolds Weddings

One of the reasons I love photographing weddings here is that it’s so charming. It has the warmth and cosiness that wraps your wedding up in a warm hug. With the Cotswolds being an area of natural beauty, it’s no wonder so many people decide to travel here from all over the world to tie the knot.

Weddings for me are the most beautiful thing to photograph. I sometimes don’t really see myself as a “wedding photographer” but more of a human being photographer. It’s the people I love to shoot and the connections between them.

How can I resist the look on the father of the bride’s face as he sees his daughter all dressed up ready to leave for the wedding ceremony?

When I’m standing waiting in a Cotswolds barn venue and I’m waiting with the groom for his bridal party to arrive, using my camera as a tool to capture the atmosphere is amazing.

Best Cotswolds Wedding Photographer

Now I’m not narcissistic to think I’m the best Cotswolds wedding photographer. However, it’s not always the award-winning photographer that gets the work. It’s the person who is the best fit for the couple. I like to think that when engaged couples are looking at my images they connect with them on an emotional level. This is really important to me.

Wedding Photography Pricing

If you’re looking for the right kind of wedding photography package for your wedding in the Cotswolds. This will boil down to several factors. For the most accurate quote, you’ll want to think about the time of year you’re having your wedding. You’ll have to consider having a second photographer needed. In most cases, you won’t need a second photographer though you can always discuss this with your wedding photographer. I don’t charge any additional fees for weddings in the Cotswolds though check with your wedding photographer if there is an additional travel cost. Some photo packages will include items such as wedding albums too. Some couples add on extra coverage on the day before or after the wedding too. Perhaps you’re having a rehearsal dinner and would like your photographer to cover this event. Or the day after your wedding you’re hosting a laid-back get-together that you want to be captured too.

The Cotswolds covers 787 square miles and is mainly spread across Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire. One of my favourite Cotswold wedding venues is in Oxfordshire, Caswell House. I photographed Viktoria + Jose’s wedding here on a gorgeous Cotswolds day. The area also goes into parts of Wiltshire, Somerset, Worcestershire and Warwickshire. These locations are such wonderful places for your wedding guests to come visit too.

Natural Wedding Photography

The Cotswolds is home to some incredible wedding venues and each one of them creates such a beautiful atmosphere that I use to create my natural and relaxed wedding photography. Whether it’s a luxury Cotswolds wedding venue or a small and intimate wedding venue. They’re all just so perfect with many having accommodation for your wedding guests to make the whole experience more intimate and close.

I’ve mentioned the morning part of a wedding day being one of my favourite times of the day, though the most magical part has to be the wedding ceremony. When It comes to being a photographer one of the key ingredients is light. If it’s the beautiful outdoor light during a summer wedding during an outdoor ceremony or an indoor stone building ceremony just like at Caswell House. The ceremony is what weddings are deeply all about, though some would argue that the party at the end of the wedding breakfast is more important! For me, once I’ve got to know my couples it’s really nice for me to see them exchange vows and make their promises to each other.
