The Barn at Upcote wedding photographer

There are many reasons why I love being The Barn at Upcote wedding photographer. The Barn at Upcote is a set of beautiful Cotswold stone barns, surrounding a landscaped courtyard; which offers an intimate place for weddings of any size. The barn has been expertly and sympathetically restored and renovated – with true attention to detail – to reflect the past, but also to be conveniently modern.

Located in the heart of the Cotswolds, just 15 minutes from Cheltenham and less than an hour from Oxford. Hidden away down a long private road just off the A40, the Barn has a unique outlook over a beautiful Cotswold valley and the local farm.

On arrival, spectacular views are unveiled, with more to come – The Secret Garden. A beautiful garden designed to celebrate all seasons, therefore, allowing the perfect backdrop for those wow factor newlywed photographs.

On top of that, fields and woodland around the venue mean that your The Barn at Upcote wedding photographer would be spoiled for choice. The venue owners (Jo and Andrew) who also got married here, offer a real personal touch to make this venue perfect for your wedding photos. Not to mention that feeling of seeing and being in the authentic Cotswold countryside. The venue offers at least 4 charming spaces that can be used for your ceremony, reception and dancing (Including a Threshing Barn, Grain Store, Sheep Shed and Cart Lodge).

The Threshing Barn is the most popular choice and can sit up to 100 guests dining and up to 200 for your evening entertainment. The Barn at Upcote offers a specially designed bridal suite, which makes it a perfect space for stress-free bridal preparations.

What I like about providing The Barn at Upcote wedding photography is the fact that the venue is a perfect blank canvas. Offering the flexibility of decorating the venue as you wish to make your day unique.
