Imagine your wedding morning, waking up at a beautiful venue and getting ready for your best day ever. You’ll be pampered and looked after by your family and your best girls. Your dress will be waiting, hung up ready for you to wear. The anticipation and excitement will be bubbling over… and this will be a morning to remember for the rest of your life, because in just a few short hours you’ll be married. Oh my…
Today’s editorial focuses on a bridal morning in a boutique hotel by the name of St Michaels, in the pretty Cotswolds town of Painswick. Gloucestershire wedding photographer Nadia Dixon got in touch with me to share this shoot, which she hopes will inspire couples to consider the Cotswolds as a place to get married. “Painswick has everything to offer for organising a magnificent wedding event. We would like more couples to find out about Painswick. That’s why we’ve started to work on a local wedding project aiming to bring together local vendors. This photoshoot is the first small step in a grand plan!”
The shoot takes place in St Michael’s Hotel, a very quirky place with incredible taste in design. Each room has its own given name and its own individual decor, paying homage to themes such as Rococo, Vintage, Indian etc.
To show the true beauty of the wedding dresses from The Freedom Collection by Boho Bride Boutique we chose to arrange the shoot in the Boho room. This luxury accommodation has so much character and so many details, that we decided to keep the styling simple and elegant, but in line with the glamorous feel this room offers.
There are plenty of lovely wedding venues dotted around the Cotswolds, small towns and boutique hotels that will charm you with their unique style and incredible character. These rare spots are perfect for rare occasions, unique weddings for couples with individual style and tons of personality.
“We believe that a special day should be one of a kind. And it should start with a magical glamorous morning, like the one we’ve created at St Michael’s boutique hotel in Painswick.”
