The beautiful society wedding of Lord Hay and his lovely fiancé Clementine was such an elegant spectacle to capture: with their own pipe band and a vintage Jaguar this wedding is a must see Cotswolds Wedding.

The Church

Clementine and Harry were married at St John the Baptist Church, Burford followed by a reception at Clementine’s beautiful family home, a stunning Cotswold stone manor.  The church Clementine and Harry chose is an impressive vision, with a grand bell tower and spacious interior filled with restored artwork, it is also one of the top 10 visited Churches in the country with over 10,000 visitors a year.

The Dress

Stunning trees lined the aisle whilst Clementine entered the church wearing a totally bespoke gown from the legendary Suzanne Nevile in duchess silk satin with a plunging V-back and a classic Audrey Hepburn inspired Batteteu neckline. A traditional A-line gown with a vintage 1960s feel including elegant high neck and sleeves, found from the ever favourite Ellie Sanderson Bridal Boutique. Her ensemble was completed with a vintage family Cartier tiara and soft veil. Harry, the groom, is part of the Clan Hay, one of the major clans of Scotland, and and Harry is next in line to inherit the title of the Earl of Erroll and become the Clan’s chief. It was therefore only right that the Clan Hay Pipe Band should lead the newlyweds from the church, the amazing sound of the pipes filled the church and the whole congregation became swept up in the atmosphere. Harry of course also wore a kilt in his family’s tartan, whilst the bridesmaids wore ivory with tartan touches.

The Reception

A drinks reception was held in the grounds of the church before the speeches in the Warrick Hall, a modern extension that complements the architecture of the church, but is filled with light for a contemporary environment perfect for entertaining your guests.

The reception took place in rooms of the family’s house, creating a lovely personal feel, the perfect location for a stunning Cotswolds wedding. I zipped between rooms capturing the laughter that was in abundance, whilst the most stunning food was served.

Clementine followed tradition by changing into a second outfit, equally as stunning as the first, before the couple were whisked away in a more modern Jaguar to enjoy their honeymoon.
