Egypt Mills in Nailsworth sits alongside a long hill path, connecting many of the local Cotswold towns together. We used to visit Egypt Mills in the mornings to attend various business networking meetings. When Dan and David gave us a call and asked us to photograph their same sex wedding in Nailsworth, of course we said sure! The view from the hotel is breathtaking, with the surrounding hills dotted with tiny cottages built from Cotswold stone. Egpyt Mills has its own water mill inside the building, still functioning after all these centuries. A little weir sits just outside the entrance, giving the most calming experience.
The couples wedding theme was purple and silver, with a distinctive DC comic book edge. Self confessed comic nerds, the cake was topped with bobbleheaded Deadpool and Joker figurines. It was a great experience to see such an elegant wedding having a comic book twist, throwing something new into the pool of traditions and customs.
A small gathering of family and friends, this intimate same sex wedding in Nailsworth, Stroud really felt like a family get together. The closeness of everyone invited really made for some great conversations and chat. Dan and David prepared for their immediate trip away to a honeymoon, guests sat with tea and cake in the lounge area of the venue.
