On the 31st of July 2021 we traveled down to the Gloucestershire countryside to meet Katy & Shaz. We were commissioned to photograph and film their idillic Cotswold barn wedding in the recently renovated Barn at Upcote.

A special guest

They invited a very important guest to their ceremony; their lovely dog sat on the front row in the rustic barn and was very well behaved throughout the ceremony, this may be thanks to the treats she was being fed treats throughout!

The Reception at The Barn at Upcote

After the ceremony the guests enjoyed games on the lawn outside the barns whilst enjoying drinks. We were particularly impressed with one game of Jenga that seemed to defy gravity.

The Veil 

Katy’s veil was originally purchased from John Lewis by her grandmother for her own wedding in the 1940’s. Katy then wore this family heirloom on her wedding day.

Evening dress

After the first dance Katy changed into her evening dress in the Hay Barn Suite, the Hay Barn Suite is perfect onsite accommodation for the happy couple. Katy & Shaz had gone wedding dress shopping together before the wedding and Shaz had actually picked out Katy’s evening dress. Once Katy had changed, we then rushed to the top of the hill to capture them both in the fading sunlight.
