Kat and Tom’s Elegant and Sentimental Wedding in the Cotswolds
Kat and Tom's supremely elegant Cotswolds wedding is the quintessential Wedding Sparrow wedding. No detail left unturned, meaning and sentiments pouring out of every design element, the heirloom quality film photographs, and the prioritization of the marriage over the wedding... now that is truly a beautiful thing.
Louise of Taylor & Porter photographed Kat and Tom and we instantly fell in love with one of the first images of the gallery - an image of Kat's embroidered veil with lyrics from a Pablo Neruda poem. Below Louise discusses a bit more about her embroidered pieces and this is a detail that is both unique and timeless. Perhaps the next most breathtaking element was the splendor of both venues, The Pig Hotel, Bath and The Lost Orangery. Every turn around every corned looked so fairytale-esque... enjoy each and every photo here and don't forget to pin for beautiful wedding ideas...
From Taylor & Porter: "Tom & Kat hosted their wedding in two fabulous venues in the heart of the English Cotswolds. Proceedings began with an intimate family rehearsal dinner set at the prestigious Pig Hotel, near Bath. The Pig has a chic and contemporary vibe within in a Georgian mansion house, with cutting edge ‘garden to kitchen’ food where Tom and Kat hosted a dinner the evening before they got married,
Whilst Kat enjoyed a luxurious morning at the Pig making her preparations; Tom and his groomsmen began the day with a pint of beer at ‘The White Horse’, a traditional English pub in Biddlestone, right round the corner from the 18th century church they were getting married in.
The ceremony in the church was a perfect blend of tradition and contemporary touches, including a Pablo Neruda poem, the lines of which had been uniquely stitched into Kat’s Hermione De Paula couture gown and veil.
The guests were then invited to a beautiful reception at The Lost Orangery, where Cornish based ‘Beautiful & The Feast’ served Champagne and canapés in the gardens. In traditional English weather style, every season came in one day! The speeches took place outside the Orangery in bright sunshine, followed by the heavens opening and an amazing rainbow signalling the call to dinner!"
