Mark has always worked very closely with The Tythe Barn, Launton & he would highly recommend it as a venue for your country wedding. Will & Emma have lovingly restored the barn to a very high standard & they put this same level of dedication into every wedding. The barn is beautifully rustic with some wonderful design touches. Mark has photographed weddings in Summer when the bride walks up an aisle which is an arbour of Wisteria in flower & Winter weddings when the barn is decked with twinkling white fairy lights. Other barns of note that Mark loves photographing weddings at are Luxters, Laines Barn, Notley Tythe Barn & Ufton Nervett Tythe Barn.
This area offers so many quintessentially English landscapes & Mark has a few favourite rural venues across this region that offer fantastic & fabulous country wedding locations for those who love the countryside.
Early last summer he took part in a wedding photo shoot at the stunning Merriscourt between Burford & Chipping Norton. Merriscourt is a fantastic venue in a beautiful rural setting. It combines traditional Cotswold stone with bright stylish interiors. There are two fantastic barns that can be decorated completely to your taste, you can go for full blown vintage with bunting & floral chinaware, shabby chic or go modern vintage with art deco glass & illuminated letters from Vowed & Amazed.
If you are looking for a rural venue you can, of course, choose a stately home across this beautiful region & one of Mark’s favourites is the beautiful Hedsor House. Hedsor House is set within its own parkland above the river Thames & is only 25 miles from London. With beautiful, opulent décor it enables you to style your wedding your way. You can have your drinks reception in the stunning Centre Hall with its glazed dome & your reception in the oak-panelled ballroom with beautiful views across the parkland. Hedsor House gives me an endless array of backdrops for stylish Bride & Groom images. In particular, he loves photographing the Bride & Groom with their wedding party on the steps!
There are now so many beautiful country venues & wherever you choose to hold your country wedding we are sure it will be a day to remember.
