What I think of The Bay Tree Hotel as a wedding venue
Bay Tree Hotel is a gem in the Cotswolds, especially since it’s located in the super popular tourist town of Burford. It is however slightly tucked away off the main street and does live up to it’s charm of being 16th Century. The floors are uneven, the furnishings old and inside it’s a warren of rooms and passageways. If you’re after BIG space this isn’t the venue for you, but if you want old rustic charm on your wedding day then it’s the perfect wedding venue.
With the hotel situated right on the road front you are limited with what photgraphy is possible. The Bay Tree hotel does have a small garden though, suitable for some group shots and a few couple portraits.
When I last photographed a wedding here it was a typical british summers day….bright sunshine, followed by unexpected downpours. Needless to say it kept me and the guests on our toes, and made for a really nice variety of wedding photos, with some indoors and outside. You can see the full wedding on my old ‘Matt Davis Photography Blog‘
