“Barnsley House is a very intimate and upscale hotel with rustic gardens, and is the perfect place for both an intimate wedding or larger event, so it was the ideal choice at this time when things feel a little up in the air.”


“The stone in this part of the Cotswolds is beautifully warm, which looks amazing even in Autumn or Winter and is a photographer’s dream.”

“I chose chic, warm and golden tones that complemented the wintery time of year, with very subtle and elegant vintage style dresses and accessories.”

“The style was incredibly elegant; nothing too over the top and fussy as this can age and date quite quickly.”


“I loved the subtle 1920’s feel of the Jesus Peiro separates with the feather sleeved jacket – kindly supplied by Ellie Sanderson bridal boutique.”

“The lace separates, which included a lace crop town with skirt were also a major feature of the shoot, but my favourite had to be the Jesus Peiro dress that tied at the back with long dotted sleeves.”

“This was perfect at this time of year and the detail on the sleeves looked incredible. This dress looked so much better on than off – which is a great lesson. I also adored the thick woollen suit by The Cotswold Tailor.”
