Barnsley House Destination Wedding: Nada and James

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…
