Caroline and Matt’s Wedding at The Kingscote Barn, Gloucestershire

On Christmas week we made our way up to the Cotswolds to join Caroline and Matt for their wedding at The Kingscote Barn in Tetbury., Gloucestershire.

Christmas weddings are always really special. Everyone’s in the party mood, pleased to get out of the house and away from bad telly to see their friends and family.

Thankfully, the weather was a little kinder than their prep shoot a few weeks before. We stayed over in Tetbury the night before and the drive to the barn in the morning was really something special.

Yeah… Christmas Trees suck anyway!

I was just taking some photos of a super new Finao ONE album which arrived this morning. It’s going to be winging its way to Pippa and Andy before Christmas (it’s a beauty.. I’ll put pictures of it up on our Facebook page as soon as they’ve seen it) and for once, I didn’t get annoyed with our living room being a background. So I took some photos of our decorations at the same time, just to be one of “those” people.… Read Full Post
