The Cotswolds is famous for being the home of visual splendor with its rolling hilltops and chocolate box villages. Tourists flock here every year to visit an array of attractions including the Cotswold Water Park, Westonbirt Arboretum and an array of gardens, abbeys, parks, farms and wild life centers. There are also some fantastic pubs, restaurants and accommodation available – enticing visitors to come back time and time again.
With so many breath-taking scenes it is no wonder that it is also the choice for many couples that are seeking a picture perfect wedding destination. Gloucestershire is no exception and certainly lives up to the reputation that The Cotswold’s has established, providing a feast for the eyes and making most photographers feel like they have landed in heaven. There are some idyllic towns and villages within the area including Cirencester, Bibury, Ewen, Stow-on the-Wold and Bourton-on-the Water. The area is ideal for those who are looking to get married outside surrounded by country views with perhaps a marquee reception to follow.
It is not just the local population that are tying the knot in these areas, with the rustic country wedding theme popularity on the rise these sublime hideaways are also becoming more of a demand among those from urban areas throughout the UK.
Outdoor venues also allow for couples to be quite creative with their themes for example teepees can really give the day a wow factor and there can be a lot more flexibility when it comes to decorating a marquee or tepee then there is in some indoor venues.
So if you are planning your big day – why not add Gloucestershire to your short-list of destinations.
