Cripps Barn Cotswold Wedding // Sarah & Olly

It’s rare for a wedding day to be a complete and utter wash out, but Sarah and Olly’s Cripps Barn Cotswold wedding certainly came close!  Despite the torrential downpour it simply served to bring everyone together and intensified the joy of the day. We normally expect cosy winter weddings but Cripps barn got the memo lighting the open fires & candles & serving up champagne & cheese. It was certainly the cosiest Summer wedding we've been too.

Sarah and Olly were such a joy to capture. Having only had their beautiful baby a few months previous they were still able to juggle both parenting & partying on the day.  Sarah looked so effortlessly stylish in her Cecilie Bahnsen dress paired with Jimmy Choo shoes (coming in hot as one of my top all time bridal looks). The  Bridesmaids wore their own selection of floral dresses combined with gypsophila poses which was a winning combination.

The ceremony took place in the quintessentially Cotswolds church of St Peter’s Southrop (also of Kate Moss wedding fame).  After the couple exchanged vows in front of their nearest and dearest everyone headed out for the short journey to Cripps Barn, armed with umbrellas.

Thankfully the downpour let up just long enough for us to slip outside with the couple for a few quick portraits against the beautiful Cotswolds stone.  We had such an incredible time capturing Sarah & Olly’s Cripps Barn Wedding with all its rustic charm.  People always obsess over what the weather will be like on their wedding day but in reality, it’s such a secondary issue when looking back.  Everyone had the best time and it was such a privilege to capture, here’s a few of our favourite moments…
