I was super-excited to be proving wedding photography at Cotswold Hotel and Spa for Ellie and Alex’s big day!  As I’m an Cotswolds wedding photographer, their wedding venue is local to me, but I still arrived a bit early for a walk around.

Ellie and her bridesmaids were enjoying their bridal preparations, and I captured a few unposed moments before having a look around the marquee and catching up with Alex and his son and the groomsmen.  The men were all looking very smart in their suits, if a little nervous!

After a few photos I rejoined Ellie for a few final preparation photos.  She looked absolutely stunning in her dress, as did her bridesmaids and flower girls.  There was a very emotional moment as Ellie walked down the aisle with her very proud Dad.  The ceremony was full of laughter and happy tears as this wonderful couple tied the knot, joined by Ashton.  I love to provide wedding photography at Cotswold Hotel and Spa, its such a lovely venue, light and bright with fantastic views over the golf course.

After the ceremony we took a ride on the golf buggies for a few photos in the grounds before joining the party for drinks and festivities.  The wedding breakfast and speeches soon commenced, followed by the food service.  As the weather was so perfect we spent some more time outdoors, throwing confetti and taking a few more photos with the setting sun.

Ellie and Alex were looking forward to the dancing, and their first dance was magical.  Soon their family and friends joined them on the dancefloor to dance the night away.  Congratulations to you, wishing you a lifetime of happiness x
