We cannot thank you enough for the stunning photographs, they are brilliant. They really capture the magic of the day and we are so grateful for all your hard work. We are so glad we chose you. And Grandma was very excited about the video and feels like she was there so that's amazing, thank you.

The lovely Cotswold location of the Hare and Hounds Hotel Tetbury Gloucestershire is very popular for marriage ceremonies and wedding receptions.

The area has a remote unspoilt feel to it but it is actually very easy to reach from the nearby M4 and M5 motorways. Very close by is Westonbirt Arboretum, which is well known to many generations of photographers by virtue of its spectacular grounds and Autumn colours. But the Hare and Hounds Hotel is not overshadowed by its more famous neighbour - its grounds are extremely spacious, varied and well maintained. A real pleasure to work in for professional photographers and videographers.

Onto the obligatory comments regarding professional photography during marriage and civil partnership ceremonies: the Hare and Hounds comes under the umbrella of Gloucestershire - obviously - and at one time this was one of the more restrictive areas of the country. However in recent times the registrars have adopted a more relaxed approach and Peter has been able to shoot a good selection of photos and video.

Sunny weather enables all the guests to make full use of the gardens for drinks and catching up with old friends and relations both in the afternoon and the evening. Luckily there are some good shaded areas in the gardens which can be utilised for the important setpiece posed photos. Sometimes Peter completes the bridal photos and groups in the early evening, after the wedding breakfast, which enables us to make use of photogenic parts of the gardens which can be very bright and contrasty earlier in the day.

 

The first photo below shows the front of the Hare and Hounds Hotel. It is just down the road from the world-famous Westonbirt Arboretum and that is certainly worth a visit if you have the time.

The hotel is very photogenic throughout. In the Summer months its worthwhile planning to have some photos shot in the evening after the wedding breakfast when the sunlight is usually of a much better photographic quality than earlier in the day. This also gives you a break from what otherwise can be quite a long session in front of the cameras in the afternoon if you have a big lists of group photos you would like. This couple slipped away from the guests for just a few minutes in the evening to have some photos around the grounds, including this shot from the front of the hotel:

A bouquet toss such as seen in the photo below used to be a common sight at weddings but sadly is no longer so frequent. Some brides have told Peter its because the bouquets cost so much that they would rather keep them than see them torn apart by competitive girlfriends! This bride's bouquet was caught by her sister, so their Dad's wallet could be in for another shock!
