Proud to present this beautiful winter wedding at Merriscourt, Sarsden, Chipping Norton in the heart of the Cotswolds. Weddings in the English countryside are not new to us and we are very excited to add to our album collection Lou & Ben's gorgeous day.
In the venue own words "Merriscourt is a breathtakingly beautiful Cotswold wedding venue on the border of Oxfordshire & Gloucestershire. Home of Thomas Astor & his family, there are three interlinking, beautiful Cotswold wedding barns for you & your guests to enjoy. You are also free to roam the 500 acres of glorious Cotswold countryside. Known as one of the prime Cotswold wedding venues, each of our weddings is bespoke, designed to your specifications. Our diligent event team pride themselves on giving you everything you dreamt of for your wedding day… and more.
The three interlinking, converted Cotswold barns surround a romantic courtyard, with spectacular rural views across the rolling countryside. There are a wealth of stunning spots for wedding photos & idyllic strolls, whatever the season" ... we couldn't agree more with each word they say.
The venue offered the perfect surroundings to get beautiful images of our couple, making us free to express our fine art and vintage wedding photography.
We first met Lou and Ben on their pre wedding session in Richmond park and we literally just fell in love with them! (here's their full album: Lou&Be's pre wedding in Richmond Park).
Their November wedding day was inspired by the Cotswolds and the colour scheme came from their wedding cake. It has all been breathtaking.. elegant, emotional, fun and full of surprises! In which sense you ask? Well, have you ever heard of Encore Entertainment? We didn't know them at the time but we do know them now!! They threw the best show ever and the funniest part is that literally no one knew this was going to happen (apart from one person of course.. and the three guys from Encore :). You should have seen Lou and Ben's faces, PRICELESS!
Here is a small video we filmed during their show, nothing fancy, but it gives the idea!
When people get in touch and enquire about our wedding photography for the Winter months, they are always very concerned about the light, the weather, the cold.. and fair enough I'd add! Keep in mind though, that as professional photographers we can deal with different situations. Our experience during the years taught us different ways to handle rainy days, low light conditions and more. Lou and Ben's wedding album is the perfect example of a beautiful November wedding. Although the weather can be very unpredictable (forgive if I add that weather in the UK is always quite unpredictable, no matter the season :), Winter months can offer amazing light conditions and colours that Spring and Summer simply cannot. So relax and just enjoy your happy day, we will do the rest!
