We first met up with Jo and Chris one cloudy, wintery day in the Purbecks where we clambered through muddy fields to capture some images for their Save The Date card. Little did we know that day that almost a year later we’d be making our way over to an equally freezing Gloucestershire to photograph their special day at Bibury Court Hotel in The Cotswolds.
We had no doubt we were in for a treat as we made our way up for Jo and Chris’ wedding day. They’d looked super glamorous as they trudged their way in their Hunter Wellies through Dorset’s muddy fields, and Chris had already proven he had excellent taste in suit jackets when we met up with them for their wedding prep.
It was cold on their wedding day. We’d stayed about 20 minutes out of Bibury in Colesbourne (we thoroughly recommend the Colesbourne Inn if you’re heading out that way – it was a truly excellent place to stay) and our car doors had completely frozen shut before we made our way over to Bibury Court Hotel in the morning. It was a winter wonderland!
Jo, Chris and the guests pretty much had the full run of the hotel for their wedding day so we were nice and cosy inside for the best part of it. The fire roared away throughout the ceremony and the reception making for a toasty and romantic setting. The registrar did try to wed Jo to the Best Man at one point, but luckily realised the error of his ways soon enough. Phew!
