If I could only shoot at one wedding venue from now on, I’d probably choose Cowley Manor!
This chic contemporary hotel, set in a grand country house with renowned lake-filled landscaped gardens, is 7.2 miles from Prinknash Abbey Park and 7.3 miles from Cheltenham Racecourse and I’ve photographed some of my favourite weddings there.
The colourful, modern rooms (in the main house and a stable block) feature designer furnishings and even a Cowley Manor mix CD! Some rooms are split over several levels; others have private terraces overlooking the grounds.
Cowley Manor Wedding
Becky & Leighton’s wedding was everything we hope a wedding will be.. and more. A great couple who trusted us to do our thing while they enjoyed the day with their favourite people.
The day itself was perfect with the weather allowing their guests to enjoy the grounds around the main house. They also booked one of our favourite wedding bands, The White Keys, who had the party rockin’ til the end of the night.
Good to have Woz along again as my 2nd shooter.
Thanks so much to Becki & Leighton for having us document this brilliant day for them and for being superstar clients.
If you’re planning a wedding at Cowley Manor, I’d love to hear from you so please get in touch via the Contact Page.

Below is a short slideshow of some of my recent wedding photos… Take a look. And turn the sound up!
I’m a Brit living with my wife, Evelyne and our three boys, Elliott, Isaac and Jonas! Evelyne and I met in the Alps in 2003 when Evelyne thought she was a cool snowboarder and I thought I was a superstar DJ. I’m a huge music fan and also love movies, scuba diving and of course, taking photos.
I photographed my first wedding in 2006 and have now shot almost 500 weddings, mostly in the UK, but I absolutely love travelling anywhere in the world. I enjoyed it when I started but love my job now more than ever.
