I should reintroduce English Wedding blog venue reviews as it’s been a little while since the last one. If you’re new to the blog (hello!) I ask wedding photographers to review wedding venues they know. It’s a great way to get an expert opinion of a wedding venue and its facilities, charm and atmosphere.

Howard Wedding Photography: Matara Venue Review

Matara is a unique and stunning wedding venue set within 28 acres of parkland in the South Cotswolds. Offering a casual and relaxed atmosphere, couples are encouraged to express themselves in their own unique way on their wedding day.

“Many brides and grooms who choose Matara are looking for something different that reflects their personal values and it is designed in such a special manner that it mirrors its foundations in nature and the value of continual exploration and creativity. With bamboo flooring, fragrant courtyard areas and original pieces of art, to the multitude of windows spreading natural light throughout the building, Matara is an unforgettable place.

Here’s an inspiring wedding for you: Viv and Ben used customs from all around the world to make their wedding celebrations a whole lot of fun. I love the Wife Cakes, napkin waving, shouting on chairs and lining up to kiss the bride and groom! They also chose a venue for the wedding reception in eco-tastic Bordeaux Quay (lots of pics towards the end of this post).

Viv and Ben’s wedding photographer was Izzy Hudgins (who’d travelled from Madrid to shoot the day!) and I have to thank Izzy for sharing the images, as well as lovely bride Viv for sharing her story of the wedding.

Enjoy! (I’ll leave the words to Viv this time 🙂

“Many people say that the wedding day is the most stressful day of their life – you hardly have any time to spend as a couple, you don’t get to talk to many of your guests who attended, and you’ll be running around from place to place.  I think this is true to a certain extent.
