When Daniella and Karl first got in touch with me about their Blackwell Grange wedding in Cotswolds, I was so excited – they had a vision for their big day to be relaxed and full of fun and games! They seemed like the loveliest people, and I couldn’t wait to shoot their wedding!

Getting ready

I rocked up at The Potting Shed at Blackwell Grange on the early morning of 25th July, where Daniella was getting prepared, and it was a real pleasure because everyone was in a good mood. Once she got ready, Daniella looked stunning and with remarkable hair and make-up looked almost like Daenerys from Games Of thrones! Karl and his crew decided to suit up at the comfort of Daniella and Karls brand new home, which was only a short drive away.

The ceremony

The wedding took place at Blackwell Grange, and it was such a romantic ceremony at their Thatch Barn. Daniella’s dad has walked her down the aisle with the veil over her face. It was a beautiful detail to go with her sequin dress. After the ceremony, they walked down the aisle together, and once they have left the barn, the confetti showers have taken place!

The reception

The wedding reception took place at the Orchard Barn at Blackwell Grange in Cotswolds, which they’d decorated with flowers and wooden ornaments. It was just pure beauty.
It was a beautifully sunny and warm day, which was everything the couple had wished for.

While the guests hung around drinking famous Pimm’s, we wandered around the venue doing fun and creative portraits. My favourite photo from our day portrait session is probably one in between the apple trees because is shows how perfect Daniella and Karl are for each other. During the golden hour, we have sneaked for those romantic and warm lights which the couple counted on!

During the reception, they had an amazing live guitarist singling all the great songs, and everyone loved them. After the meal there were a few speeches, then the couple had their first dance, and the DJ had kicked off the party.
