Hyde House Weddings
Hyde House, located in the picturesque setting of Stow-on-the-Wold, is a popular choice for couples seeking a romantic and charming wedding venue. The venue boasts several key features that make it a distinctive location for nuptial celebrations. Firstly, the accommodation provided for guests is exceptional, with 20 rooms offering superb views of the surrounding Cotswolds countryside. The venue also incorporates a few highly versatile function rooms, making it ideal for both intimate and larger weddings. The main Ceremony Barn is the crown jewel of Hyde House, where couples can exchange their vows under a stunning arched ceiling adorned with modern chandeliers. Additionally, the venue incorporates a beautiful Grange Barn for receptions, capable of accommodating up to 150 guests. Also noteworthy is the Garden Room, an aesthetically pleasing, glass fronted space that allows for an abundant influx of natural light, making it particularly popular for pre-reception drinks and canapés. Lastly, the expansive manicured gardens complete the picture, providing a stunning backdrop for wedding photography. With its combination of rustic charm and contemporary facilities, Hyde House remains a distinguished choice for prospective wedding couples.
The History of Hyde House
Hyde House, one of the most exquisite wedding venues in Gloucestershire, sits proudly in the picturesque town of Stow-on-the-Wold. The history of the venue dates back more than a century, having been built in 1893 as a spacious family home. Over the decades, the house displayed an elegant aura of rural peace and tranquillity, finding itself nestled within a 5000-acre estate. In 2005, it was sold and beautifully refurbished into a bed and breakfast. In 2011, the property changed hands once again and began its journey as an esteemed wedding venue. The addition of the Grange, a custom-built barn made specifically for the purpose of ceremonies, in 2018 only added more character and charm to the venue. The venue beautifully blends historical elements and contemporary designs, due in part to a seamless restoration of the house – retaining its traditional Cotswold stone exteriors, while injecting a sense of modern, elegant sophistication inside. From a homestead to a B&B and now a prestigious wedding location, the historical evolution of Hyde House introduces both charm and character to its neighbours in Stow-on-the-Wold, Gloucestershire. It continues to evolve, timelessly adapting and serving in new capacities while remaining a testament to its rich historical roots.

Picking your Hyde House Wedding Photographer- why Pedge Photography?
Besides the fact that you are getting a highly professional, experienced, and creative photographer who will capture all of the special moments of your wedding day, family and friends, you are getting someone that goes in to each wedding knowing that every couple is unique and that all weddings deserve their own twist and personality, rather than be provided a conveyor belt experience. I take great pride to subtly merge into your day and to be approachable for all your guests. The Cotswolds is an area I grew up in and I am all too familiar with everything the region has to offer.
What products do you offer as a Hyde House Wedding Photographer?
This can bespoke based on your needs. All packages include a digital gallery in which you, your family and friends can enter with a password and download to any device. On top of this, you can also purchase prints, framed goods and albums through the digital gallery. If you would like me to build you an album, I offer an additional album package as well. Other bits, should you wish to choose them, include a pre-wedding shoot in the cotswolds or a second photographer for your wedding day.
