Back at Barnsley House in the Cotswolds

We’ve just got back from another beautiful wedding at Barnsley House, down in the Cotswolds. The journey along the A429 is growing familiar this season, the picturesque Cotswold stone walls greeting us elegantly each visit.

A Fun Filled Wedding Reception at Tewin Bury Farm, Welwyn

Elegant Garden Wedding near Coventry

Just home from a fabulous wedding tonight in Bubbenhall, near Coventry. The couple decided, after visiting a few of the excellent wedding venues in the Coventry area, that having their wedding on the grounds of the Groom’s parents’ house was the option for them. Speaking to them during the evening they mentioned that, while costs […]
