Third time lucky! Zara and Andy organised not one, but three variations of their special day. Originally they were to get married at the Matara Centre. But unfortunately they had to postpone due to COVID. So then they decided they’d like to reschedule and organise a larger celebration. This time in Cornwall. The Isles of Scilly, where Andy also proposed to Zara. Alas, they had to cancel again. Damn pandemic! But luckily they recruited me for the wedding that actually took place. An intimate wedding of 20 at Cowley Manor, just outside of Cheltenham. As a local, I am delighted to finally get the opportunity to work as a Cowley Manor Wedding Photographer. I hope the first of many!
Zara & Andy were another Tinder match! Love at first swipe. Anybody else met their significant other online?
If I had to describe the wedding in two words. Understated and elegant. Zara wore a sleek and slightly loose fitting silk dress from The White Room in Minchinhampton. Simple but stunning. Jessica Rose made Zara’s make up her signature natural style. And Blushes Hair pinned the front of her hair back. For a relaxed but polished look.
The design also matched the brides personal styling. With statement florals by Cotswold Blooms on perspex pillars for the ceremony set up. The venue itself is the perfect choice for a modern couple who still loves traditional settings. What makes Cowley Manor so special is the way it combines elegance with cool design. From the incredible spa. To the quirky snooker room. To the colourful bar. And then the wood panelled restaurant! There are countless opportunities for incredible backdrops.
Congratulations Andy & Zara! I like to think the wedding turned out the way it was meant to be. Thank you for choosing me to capture your special day!
