A summer wedding in the Cotswolds hills at Merriscourt Barn!
This summer I traveled to the Cotswolds for London residents Jon & Katrina’s Countryside wedding at the Merriscourt Barn. This venue is fantastic for wedding photography, with high ceiling, the lighting for the ceremony and reception was perfect. The grounds are lovely too and include lovely gardens, trees and open countryside to the west. As an exclusive wedding venue, it has everything you could need for a great wedding in the heart of the Cotswold countryside.
A stylish Chipping Norton wedding!
Katrina & Jon both live and work in London so they wanted to get out of the big city smoke for a more laid back and chilled countryside weekend. Jon is a big cheese in adverting, A world I know all too well having been a sound designer for hundreds of tv commercials whilst I lived in New York. Katrina is an actress and they actually met on a project Jon was producing in Spain and the rest, as they say, is history. Katrina’s energy is just so contagious and her smile lights up the room, she’s a breath of fresh air!
After diner I took them out for couples time, the wedding planner will usually let me know where other photographers usually take their couples, I, however, will take them in the complete opposite direction to that and having done so stumbled upon a locked sand silo barn. Needless to say, we got it open and found somewhere which had never been photographed before!
Jon & Katrina, their friends, and family were great all day and a pleasure to photograph. I wish them all the very best for the future. I hope that I’ll have the pleasure of photographing another Merriscourt Barn wedding soon!
Heres what they had to say about working with me!
Andrew is an amazing wedding photographer. My wife and I are both in the creative industries and very particular about the details. Andrew exceeded all our expectations. He was great ahead of the day, helping us to plan the shots we wanted. On the day his laid back but “on-it” style put us at ease, he captured everything with an almost super human ability to be in two places at once! Andrew’s photographic style is intimate, effortless and avoids wedding cliche without losing the tradition and romance of the day. We could not be happier with the photos Andrew took and his good company on the day was very much a bonus. A class act.
