For our final I Do’s of 2016 we had the honour of photographing Nada and James’s Barnsley House destination wedding. It was a beautiful and intimate occasion. Although Nada and James hail from Scotland and Oman they first met at school in the faraway reaches of South Africa. Both have since lived all across the world and have formed close friendships wherever they have been. This therefore was the perfect occasion to get everyone together for an unforgettable celebration. James and Nada currently reside in Kathmandu and decided to bring the flavours of Nepal to the Cotswold countryside. Their shared love of music was also infused into the day. Culture and music created a magical atmosphere for Nada and James’s romantic Barnsley House wedding. Amidst all the pretty what stood out the most was the spirit of kindness and depth of character that both Nada and James shared. We wish these two beautiful souls a lifetime of happiness and love together…

Cotswold Photographers: Weddings by Nicola & Glen

We only met Nicki and Tom the week before their wedding. As we recognised each other at Calcot Manor it felt like meeting old friends. Since January countless phone and Skype calls between the UK and Australia had taken place. Each conversation taking indulgently longer than it should as we chatted away about the wedding plans, life and everything in between. We would be having our first morning cuppa in the Cotswolds while Nicki and Tom would be back at their home in Manley after work or yoga practice. Each email from Nicki was excitedly opened. Usually revealing some secret or surprise that Tom or their guests had in store! We were completely beguiled by the vision for their destination wedding in the Cotswolds. Mostly the generosity of spirit with which this couple lived life resonated with us deeply. Their Calcot Manor summer wedding unfolded as fabulously as expected. In person Nicki and Tom were even more warm hearted and fun! Nicola and Tom, we are so thankful our paths crossed with yours. Witnessing your love for life and each other has left us completely inspired…

Cufflinks made from watch mechanisms were Tom’s gift to each Groomsmen.

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

Tom in turn had his own surprise from Nicki…

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

…An amazing Panerai watch!

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

Tom and the guys looked very stylish in light grey suits and playful black and white ties.

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

Nicki’s bridal style was oh so romantic; her Charlotte Mills shoes even had a poem inscribed on the sole!

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

After months of internet stalking we were most excited to see our Bride’s Moira Hughes dress!

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

Every aspect was exquisite. From the subtly embossed Italian bodice…to the dramatic bow and raw silk skirt.

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

Nicki’s beautiful Bridesmaids were by her side all the way; true friends and cheerleaders to our Bride.

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

Nicki is an avid reader of our journal and heeded all our advice on timings for the morning…

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

Careful planning meant everyone had time to enjoy themselves AND we got to capture photos like this!

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

There are so many wonderful moments to capture…like receiving a beautiful necklace from your husband to be!

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

We loved the romantic and delicate details inspired by nature that permeated the day.

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

Vintage cars transported everyone to the nearby Church in Hawkesbury Upton.

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

Mist and rain created a sense of atmosphere and a muddy car park invoked a spirit of adventure!

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

With horse traffic to contend with too the setting could not have been more idiosyncratically English.

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

Our Bride made her way up the old stone aisle of St Mary’s on her Father’s arm.

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

Where Nicki and Tom were became husband and wife!

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

We love those first few moments when our couple emerge from the Church as newlyweds.

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

The joy of the occasion is completely infectious…

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

And everyone joins in the celebration as confetti is thrown with enthusiastic abandon!

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

The Mariachi Men created an instant party atmosphere with their festive and lively performance!

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

No one held back from enjoying what must be the best wedding surprise we have ever seen!

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

After formal family photos and while guests enjoyed the band it was time for bride and groom portraits.

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

When it comes to having a good time Nicki and Tom certainly nailed the brief!

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

They really wanted photos that made the most of the breathtaking views at Calcot Manor…

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

It was however our gorgeous couple (and that stunning veil!) that made the vista.

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

After portraits it was back to the mariachi, pisco sours and champagne!

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

A handmade sign directed to all the important destinations near and far, including the bar!

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

As the sun appeared the last box was ticked to make Nicki and Tom’s wedding at Calcot Manor a perfect day!

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

After their drinks reception at the main house and gardens of Calcor Manor…

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

Everyone made their way to the beautifully styled Barn for the Wedding Breakfast to commence!

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

Our couple commissioned the very talented watercolor artist Harriet de Winton to create their paper goods.

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

Including a bespoke watercolor table plan on canvas inspired by the beaches in Sydney that our couple love.

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

Lisa Elliott Floral Design created a statement in the Barn at Calcot Manor with a hanging wreath installation.

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

A lavender and fern wreath motif wove through the details including the handpainted cake by Curtis & Co.

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

Guests enjoyed a delicious three course dinner created by the talented Calcot Manor chefs.

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

Which was followed by animated and heartfelt speeches.

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

We stole away to catch the sunset…

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

Before heading back to the conservatory at Calcot Manor where Nicki and Tom cut their exquisite cake!

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

After that there was no delay in getting the dancing started and a party that would last well into the night.

Stephanie and Michael celebrated their wedding in spectacular style at Blenheim Palace. Their big day was recently published in one of the national wedding magazine too! Stephanie and Michael always knew they wanted a beautiful Queensberry wedding album, which would allow them to truly enjoy all their photographs. To reflect the size and grandeur of their wedding they opted for a spectacular 18 x 12 inch Duo design. Our couple opted for our biggest album size to accommodate the 117 images they had chosen. Many of which really showcase the majestic setting where they said “I Do”. Our Groom, being an expert in the jewelry industry, appreciated the exquisite craftsmanship of the Duo Design; each image being individually hand cut, mounted and framed on the page. To personalise their album Stephanie and Michael chose a luxurious Champagne leather cover embossed with their names. The result is rather breathtaking! We invite you to take a peek for yourself…

Laura and Rich’s Manor House Hotel wedding in the Wiltshire village of Castle Combe fell on a bright and beautiful February day. We always brag that we have the best clients and Laura and Rich were no exception. To prove this point we could list their many affable character traits, professional accomplishments and descriptions of how perfectly they fit as a couple and family. However the story of how Laura and Rich found their wedding venue reveals a side of their relationship we love the most! When Laura and Rich started searching for a place to get married they were not worried about practicalities such as geographical location, size, or architecture even. Their search was instead inspired by a more romantic notion. Our couple traversed the UK, visiting all the locations where their favourite movie Stardust was filmed, until they found the perfect place to say I Do! Their wedding day was just as sweet…

The morning of the wedding we met Laura at the Manor House Hotel.

Jackie and Colin’s Queensberry wedding album in Gun Metal buckram is contemporary and city chic just like our couple! Their London wedding at Morden Hall was a contemporary interpretation of refined elegance. We love that their wedding album embodies this feel too. Jackie and Colin opted for a 12 x 12 inch Classic Flushmount album with their favourite 80 wedding photos from the day. Kodak Endura Silver Halide paper with its crisp detail suited the clean look of their wedding day. Our Bride is an Art Director for an advertising and design agency so had a clear idea of the aesthetic she wanted for their album. Jackie’s bold choice of Gun Metal for the cover, personalised with a paired back white cover motif, resulted in a stylish album finish. As a lovely extra Jackie and Colin also had two 7 inch replica albums made for each mom!

Sophie and Kyle’s Cotswold wedding was a classic countryside celebration! Our London couple wanted to enjoy their wedding memories in a tangible way by having a gorgeous wedding album to page through. They wanted their first family heirloom to be a timeless representation of this important and happy occasion. The durability and elegant style of our Queensberry wedding albums made the perfect choice. Sophie and Kyle chose our most popular album size and style; a 12 x 12 inch Classic Flushmount album. Where photographs are printed directly onto the page allowing for a contemporary design style. For the cover material they opted for micro leather, high end with a slightly textured finish, in a creamy Eggshell hue. A crisp cover motif with their names, wedding date and a luxurious gold accent personalised their album beautifully. As a thoughtful Christmas gift Sophie and Kyle also had a five inch copy album made for each set of parents. See their wonderful wedding album below…

Nicola and Tom’s Calcot Manor wedding exuded a romantic and vintage charm that swept all our hearts away. From their incredible getaway car, our Bride’s beautiful off the shoulder dress to the creamy blush and peach tones that accented their wedding. We also loved the organic wreath motif that our couple delicately wove into all the design elements of the day. With so many  inspirational touches we are not surprised the editors of Style Me Pretty wanted to share Nicola and Tom’s wedding with their hundreds of thousands of readers around the world. It is an honour to relive Nicola and Tom’s joy filled celebration on these pages and reminds us what fun it was to capture this Calcot Manor destination wedding!

Anna and Rhys had the most magical Rosewood London wedding. To enjoy their resulting wedding photos to the full they decided to get a gorgeous Queensberry Duo wedding album. To include all the moments, portraits, setting and details our couple chose 113 images from the day to be printed in a 18 x 12 inch design; the biggest album format we provide. The Duo style, with its luxurious matting to surround each photo and wings and flips to enhance the design, provided that extra wow factor to match their very special celebration. For the cover Anna and Rhys opted for an embossed classic Micro Leather in a stylish grey hue called Shadow. They also gifted each set of parents a 10″ flushmount copy album and added an extra one for themselves that they could have out on their coffee table all the time! We loved producing such a stunning set of Queensberry albums for Anna and Rhys and their families to enjoy. As our couple recently told us: “We shamefully have our wedding photos out on full display and they attract so many compliments – we can’t thank you guys enough.” Our pleasure!
