It’s been an amazing year filled with some truly beautiful and inspiring weddings but I think we see enough of that on social media, so I’ve dug out a few of my favourite moments from weddings this year, which belong on the Wedding Bonus DVD, if such a thing existed.  Some are romantic, some are super-cute, some are just downright hilarious; I hope you enjoy them as much I did capturing them…..

The moment this stunning bride first saw her makeup…..ian-sally-wedding-079

The moment these bridesmaids went for a final pre-ceremony selfie….andrew-sarah-059

The moment they did shots to calm the bride’s nerves….jessica-david-110

The moment the veil literally blew away….jana-richard-69-2

The moment the little girl screamed for a tiara of her own…..rachel-christos-115

The moment the Best Man revealed his feminine side….tara-david-254

The moment this bride got all her ducks in a row (well, swans actually)…..jana-richard-230

The moment this groom took a selfie with an unsuspecting me in it….rachel-christos-339

The moment this usher had had enough…..jessica-david-254

The moment when the bridesmaids were trying to make the baby smile and nearly fell down the hill themselves….rachel-christos-348

The moment this bride revealed a personalised wedding dress to her hubby….tara-david-298

The moment she took a deep breath to steady herself….ian-sally-wedding-192

The moment he slapped her during the speeches (harmlessly I might add)….tara-david-442

The moment they got in a bit of last minute dance practice….rachel-christos-367

The moment the magician showed up….jessica-david-581

The moment she laughed in his face at the alter….ian-sally-wedding-384

The moment the drunk Uncle worked is magic….jana-richard-259

The moment the kids all looked at me at once (not easy)……ian-sally-wedding-541

And my personal favourite – the moment the helicopter owned by the manager of a very famous football club landed as we were in the middle of taking a lovely serene couple shot, and by way of apology, the passenger gifted this lucky couple a 15 minute flight over the Cotswolds – what an epic way to end their romantic day and this 2016 roundup….

Farncombe Estate Tweet Meet

Today we were invited to the monthly Cotswold Concierge Tweet Meet which is held on the first Tuesday of every month, each time at different Cotswold based venue.

Today’s meeting was held at the absolutely beautiful Farncombe Estate Conference Centre.

The Cotswold Concierge Tweet Meets are fabulous free events open to all local Cotswold business owners – it’s very casual as networking goes and if you are anything like me, you are likely to make as many friends as contacts!

They really have done a super job of bringing Cotswold business together and are just growing strength by strength so it’s a really great thing to get involved with.

All you need to do it to go on Twitter and follow @CotswoldsConcie and the wonderful organisers Mette, Emidy & Tom will be on hand to let you know when and where the next meeting is.

Here are just a few snaps I took looking down the hill to the Coach House where you can book various events and conferences – more of a conference village unlike the stuffiness of some centres I’ve visited in the past – I’d highly recommend this venue for any function big or small, not only does the view sell itself, but with the 5* Dormy House Hotel at the top of the hill and the 5** Foxhill Manor just across the way, you truly are spoilt for choice at this simply fantastic meeting place.
