Sarah and Ian’s Slaughters Manor wedding in the Cotswolds was a day filled with poignance and beauty. Numerous details were incorporated for the sentimental significance they brought to the occasion. In memory of Sarah’s father his cufflinks were worn by her brother who would be walking her down the aisle. Plymouth gin was used for the wedding cocktails as that is where Ian’s family hails from! Then there were the many touches that added an extra dash of pretty to the day. From the stationery suite that was a labour of love by Sarah to the vintage wine crates from France that held the confetti. We loved that Sarah and Ian put so much heart into their wedding day. The story and effort behind every detail made it such a pleasure to photograph!
Sarah wanted the details of the day especially captured so we allowed ample time in the morning to do so.
Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue and a silver sixpence for her shoe…
Sarah’s bouquet by the Broadway Florist incorporated pops of colour against shades of blush and green.
Our Bride’s beauty look by Maya from the Claire Nicole team evoked a relaxed air of grace…
Sarah looked absolutely radiant and oh so gorgeous…
A bespoke and feminine Watters bridal dress of tulle and lace accentuated our Bride’s effortless style.
Sarah’s darling mother was by her side to help with the finishing touches before walking down the aisle.
Our Seattle born Bride also had over half a dozen of her friends with her who had flown in from the States!
St Mary’s Church in Lower Slaughter village was dressed with florals and twinkling candles…
This beautiful old Church where our couple would say I Do is a mere stroll from the Slaughters Manor House.
Sarah, her brother, mother and closest friends made an elegant yet casual procession to the church.
We loved our dashing groom Ian’s expression as he saw his Bride to Be!

Sarah and Ian told us from the start their wedding photos were one of the most important things to them.
And together we created a timeline that would allow their day to be captured as they would want.
We honour the trust our couples place in us to photograph such an important occasion
And our clients appreciate that it is a team effort between couple and photographer to make the magic happen!
After portraits Sarah and Ian had allowed time to enjoy drinks with their guests.
To capture the atmosphere of an occasion we focus on the details that our couples have invested in.
As well as the ambience of the setting and unique aspects of the day.
Our couples love seeing the reception space photographed all setup before guests have seated!
As once the room is filled all our bride and groom see when they enter the room is a sea of happy faces!
Once the Wedding Breakfast began it was time for more merriment in the form of 5 courses of delicious food.
Salmon to represent Seattle, Beef Wellington a British classic and their shared love of chocolate for dessert!
Toasts and laughters permeated the evening with dancing to follow into the late of hours of the night.
Congratulations Sarah and Ian; we wish you a happily married life filled with as much heart as this special day!
