Lauren and Wardy’s Country Themed Wedding
This wonderful wedding took place at the very characteristic Kingscote Barn in Tedbury Gloucestershire.
For those who are not familiar with it, allow us to introduce you to the location first:
Privately owned, Binley Farm stretches across 400 acres of the stunning Cotswold Hills near Tetbury, Gloucestershire.
The Gale family are proud to have farmed Binley Farm for more than 80 years. The native limestone grassland, ancient beech woodland and grazing sheep make this the picture perfect location.
Dating from the 17th century, the tasteful architectural transformation of the Cotswold stone barn allows for retention of its original character combined in natural harmony with the local surroundings and landscape.
With interior Cotswold stone walls, exposed beams, flagstones, under floor heating, and plentiful natural light, the finishing touches in the now resplendent Kingscote Barn embrace an eclectic mix of rustic charm with modern 21st century aspects.
But let’s now talk about Lauren and David and their wedding day and if you like Flowers you will definitely love this wedding in particular.
