Adeline & Andy, A Wedding In The Cotswolds

I met Adeline and Andy two years ago at a wedding in the Lake District. Since then I have waited for this day to come. I think it’s fair to say that this is the wedding I have been looking forward to the longest.
And then there it was – a cold, rainy and dark morning. I opened the door to the Wheatsheaf Inn where Adeline was getting ready and a wave of warmth enveloped me, accompanied by a flurry of laughing, chatting, happy people. Like a cozy fireplace on a winter day the entire day continued in this fashion, warming you from the inside out. Was there rain? And freezing temperatures? We didn’t notice.

Knowing these two I expected a lot but this day simply topped it all. From the wonderful Wheatsheaf Inn (I want to live in this place) and Adeline’s incredible Jenny Packham dress to traipsing around a forest with the newly married couple during what at least felt like a dry spell the day flew past in a brightly coloured whirl. There was a bake-off with too many cakes to count, looking delicious and tasting even better. Everybody needs people in their life who can bake like this. Then there was Dan the Best Man who brought the house down with his fantastic speech, the largest BBQ in Britain producing amazing food at the Stone Barn, fresh Spring flowers as far as the eye could see and spectacular tunes from Alex Taylor.

I hear there may or may not have been a limbo contest happening but we shouldn’t speak of that and look at some photos instead:




Andy is a photographer himself. The day I met him I waved my Hasselblad camera in front of his face so convincingly that he decided to buy one himself – which is why I makes me even happier that we got a chance to get some special medium format portraits done on their wedding day.



It turns out that Adeline was right after all – getting married in April in England the weather should really be the least of your concerns. And it was. A giant field of bright yellow flowers helps as well, I found.



Again, a massive thank you goes to Marco who helped out with his photographic skills, umbrellas, coats, reflectors and his car.  He is great to sit with during dinner as well.

What a fantastic day! Thank you so much for letting us be a part of it and getting to know your families and friends. Marco and I wish you all the best and enough happiness to always warm you like a fireplace in the Cotswolds. Or a giant BBQ.
