Hannah & Jonathan's beautiful Caswell House wedding in the Cotswolds...
During the gorgeous weather of the August bank holiday weekend I was treated to the beautiful wedding of Hannah and Jonathan which was held at the lovely Cotswold venue of Caswell House near Brize Norton in Oxfordshire - which is only 45 minutes from Cheltenham.
Early in the morning Julie from Jules Makeup Artistry & Hair Design in Oxford arrived at the spacious bridal cottage to get Hannah and her bridesmaids looking gorgeous whilst I took the opportunity to capture a few candid snaps before heading upstairs for some beautiful detail shots of Hannah's shoes, dress and bridal jewellery.
Hannah looked absolutely stunning in her Enzoani dress from Surrey Brides and her Dad's eyes completely lit up when he opened the suite door see her all ready to be walked arm and arm down the aisle. Hannah and her bridesmaids bouquets were made by the very talented Amy from Amelie Floral Design - and smelt amazing.
We were so blessed with the weather on their warm Cotswold day so the ceremony was held outside among the wild flowers in the garden courtyard. The purple flowers against the warm golden hue of the Cotswold stone was a thing of such beauty. Jonathan looked rather stunned as Hannah came down the aisle to stand by his side. She looked truly beautiful!
Later in the evening after the most yummiest of wedding breakfasts (I had the breast of lamb which was divine) and speeches, we went for a walk through the private gardens of Caswell House and the surrounding fields to capture some nice arty photographs as the sun was setting - such gorgeous natural light.
When we got back to the barn the band The Kicks were playing and they had everyone up on the dance floor doing their thing before everyone took a break after the first set to enjoy a very scummy wedding cake made by Rachel from Cake by Rachel and tucking into hot pulled pork rolls with stuffing and apple sauce.
Caswell House really is a fab Cotswold venue. There is plenty of space to move within the barns and surrounding grounds, so nothing feels cramped at all. There are fun garden games to play during champagne & canapés on the lawn and the food really is top shelf (and thats coming from a foodie). The private gardens offer fantastic photo opportunities and if couples are feeling adventurous then there are some great shots to be had around the farm and out buildings.
