A styled wedding shoot at Rococo Gardens in Painswick Gloucestershire is the feature of this week’s blog. We pulled this shoot together to highlight some of The Cotswolds best wedding suppliers with a focus on bridal hair, country flowers, bridal make-up and millinery.
We chose Rococo Gardens as it is beautifully situated in the heart of the Cotswolds, has a great reputation and wonderful features for hosting weddings and civil partnerships.
The Independent has named Rococo Gardens as one of the top 50 locations to hold your wedding or partnership ceremony in the UK. Wow!
There are three prime locations in the gardens for your wedding plus a host of lovely features and settings for photographs and for you and your guests to walk around and enjoy before and after the ceremony.
The Eagle House – an intimate and romantic location, the Eagle House can offer a setting unmatched in the country.
The Red House – providing an ideal location for couples looking for a more rustic location as most of the ceremony can take place on the terrace outside. It has proven to be our most popular building by far, partly due to the lovely vista up which the bride can walk to the ceremony. With the terrace providing a perfect stage, up to 80 guests can comfortably watch the couple say their vows.
The Orangery – accommodating 70 people. Situated near the entrance to the Garden, it has easy access for the disabled. It can also be used for your guests to enjoy light refreshments and drinks after the ceremony.
