Old English Meets Free-Spirited at Cornwell Manor - Cotswold Wedding Venue

Image by Julie Michaelsen Photography.

If I was to get married all over again (same chap obviously) then I would absolutely rent out a beautiful country house in the Cotswolds. Something a little classic but with a bohemian soul. Cornwell Manor in Oxfordshire is such a place and if you haven’t yet taken a stroll through their listing then you must. MUST I tell you.

This sweet editorial from Julie Michaelsen Photography and Rebecca K Events shows off all the beautiful details that can be found here – the glorious grounds, hidden nooks and doors, the elegant ballroom with balcony and its own pretty little chapel.

There really is so much goodness to enjoy!

Notes from the Planner & Photographer

Rebecca & Julie say…

Our vision for this inspiration editorial came from the courtship between two cultures and heritages. A young Californian artist who marries into English aristocracy, at his family’s country manor in the Cotswolds. We wanted to marry the history of the old English countryside with the modern and glamorous free-spirited bride, to cater for the artisanal, romantic bride… The bride who strives to embrace life as an adventure, will dance in the rain and with regards to her wedding; wants to bring nature indoors for a fresh and all sensorial experience at her wedding.

We wanted to give a nod to the continued popularity of the pantone colour ‘greenery’ whilst retaining a wild and imperfect theme through the floral design but also by contradicting the glamour of the blush wedding dress with the fresh flowers in the brides’ hair for their traditional church ceremony.
