Arlington Row and its row of beautiful weaver's cottages in Bibury in the Cotswolds in England

      Romantic Cotswolds



      The Cotswolds in England immediately won my heart upon arrival to photograph an intimate wedding. It’s a very special place and I hope you will find my luxury destination wedding photographer’s tour guide through the Cotswolds in England helpful.

      The Cotswolds comprise the Cotswold Hills, a range of rolling hills. The Cotswolds are based on a bedrock of Jurassic limestone creating a grassland habitat, which is characteristic for the golden-colored Cotswold stone. The use of this mineral creates unique features. It’s a predominantly rural landscape featuring stone-built villages, historical towns with quaint homes and gardens. Most of the District is in the county of Gloucestershire and the main town is Cirencester. A visit to the Cotswolds offers a perfect combination of relaxation and exciting activities.

      Bibury made out of a fairytale

      Bibury is a village in Gloucestershire, England and about 6 miles northeast from ‘the Capitol of the Cotswolds’, Cirencester. It’s the ‘most beautiful village in England’ according to William Morris. And hence, it’s no wonder that it is a major destination for tourists. Highlight of Bibury is the Arlington Row, a row of beautiful weaver's cottages most photographed in the country. Wandering these honey colored Cotswold stone buildings gives you the perfect Cotswold experience on a sunny summer day. And don’t miss Arlington Mill and the Bibury Trout Farm close by as well as the Church of St. Mary.

      Where to stay – The Village Pub

      The Village Pub is a must-stay if you want to experience a typical traditional country pub in the Cotswolds. It’s just across the road from Barnsley House, a refined English wedding venue and makes it the perfect Village Pub if you have a bigger wedding party. It offers six quaint bedrooms, a menu full of delicious food with local produce and not to forget a generous stock of Cotswolds craft ales, crisp West Country ciders, and an exclusive wine stash. Your guests will enjoy this authentic and cozy hotel on your wedding weekend celebration.
