Whiteley Weddings - Hampshire Wedding Photography talks about.... The Bay Tree in Burford

What we say:

I cover weddings all over the country and this review is about a wedding that took me to the Cotswolds! 

The Bay tree is a lovely venue in the village of Burford. The town it typical Cotswolds with a high street with stunning Cotswold stone and little character shops and boutiques. 

The Hotel itself is an old coaching house with stunning gardens that are really intimate and maintained to perfection. 

You can also get married outside here in the conservatory room or indoors, both are lovely spots and t he day cannot be ruined by the weather! The conservatory is where the party starts in the evening which has a modern feel to it but just a few steps away is a medieval style staircase and suits of armour! 

A very unique venue with a special feel that has something for everyone!
