Visit to Queen’s Eyot

It might have been a bank holiday weekend full of wind and rain but the weather held out for us for a visit to Queen’s Eyot in Windsor on Saturday.

Queen’s Eyot is a secluded four acre island on the Thames, a few miles upstream from Windsor. The island is accessed by its own private ferry so it is a perfect and unusual venue for weddings. We’ll be photographing Jo and Ed’s wedding there in September.

Here’s a couple of shots from the day.

The Barn at Bury Court – Surrey

The Barn at Bury Court is an exciting venue, which is quite simply, stunning.

With far reaching views over surrounding countryside, yet only five minutes from the A31, the peace and beauty of this venue is breathtaking.

The innovative and beautiful gardens, designed by Piet Oudolf, are justly acclaimed as “truly exceptional” combining natural elegance with artistic form. Herbaceous borders, rich in colour, are packed with unusual plants interwoven with waving grasses and sculptures.

About 170 guests can be seated for dining in The Barn, which has been restored to the highest possible standards using authentic materials.

The Barn is an impressive, graceful combination of authenticity and modernity. Its lofty beams are offset by a natural oak floor and clean, minimalist lines.

This country venue is refreshingly light, bright and stylish.

The barn can be divided by curtains, to great dramatic effect, in order to separate the ceremony and reception areas.

The balcony can be used for additional seating for the ceremony or as a separate bar area.

The Oast Cottage is a charming, artistic, restored hop-house with a bridal suite for the bride and groom’s use only. This truly delightful accommodation is complimentary with Wedding Receptions.
