Once Upon a Time for a Cotswold Wedding

March 22nd, 2017

JellyCake had the pleasure of being involved in a fabulous photoshoot at the very beautiful Thornbury Castle on the edge of the Cotswolds, within easy reach of the M4/M5 and Bristol.  With the venue being a romantic castle the theme for the day was Once Upon a Time with an opulent but ethereal and mystical feel.

Thornbury Castle dates back to 1511 when it was built as an early example of a Tudor country house with elegant medieval influences.  King Henry VIII stayed at the castle with his wife Anne Boleyn and although it is now a 27 room luxurious hotel, it still retains its historic character with stunning rooms, bedchambers and beautiful gardens.  The hotel can accommodate small and large weddings with up to 120 evening guests in the Tudor Great Hall.

The lovely bride wore four different dresses, each one reflecting the romance of the story, along with a gorgeous crown and dreamy wedding bouquet created by Tinker Jo.

The beautiful stationery and luxuriously decorated Great Hall.
