The New Year saw us driving through the snow between Horsham and the Cotswolds decorating two venues for New Years Eve weddings as well as some private parties.
Both events used minimal flowers which is highly recommended at this time of year as the flower markets are closed and the cost of flowers increases significantly. Instead, candles, lighting and coloured linen were used to great effect.
Our favourite new venue over New Year was the Cotswold88 Hotel in Painswick. Set amongst the tiny little lanes of this picturesque town and with fabulous views, this boutique hotel is hired exclusively for house-party weddings. The management and staff are innovative, professional and very friendly and the decor is very funky. Larger weddings require a marquee in addition to the hotel, but as the following image shows this can be decorated to complement the character of the venue!
